Branscombe is a small village on the East Devon coast full of character. There is a National Trust farm, watermill and tearooms. The beach is unspoilt with just one thatched roof cafe serving good food. It is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and part of the famous Jurassic Coast. The impressive red sandstone cliffs of Devon meet the equally impressive limestone cliffs of Dorset making a walk along the long beach a must! The sea is clean and great for swimming in the summer, and can be spectacular when the weather is more inclement. The village itself is criss-crossed with footpaths and there is easy access to the South West Coastal Footpath of East Devon  which has stunning views across the bay. And as an added extra there are 2 real ale pubs, both serving good food. Our self catering accommodation is ideally  situated in the village square in walking distance of the beach at Branscombe mouth. It is an ideal base for exploring all of the surrounding attractions of East Devon. It is very competitively priced in this much sought after holiday area.
