Cosy cottage vibes abound at this two-bed property in Branscombe within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As well as feeling really welcoming, this beautiful cottage spoils guests with touches of both traditional character and up-to-date luxury. Ideal for one couple or a family and two dogs, it’s in a lovely peaceful spot that’s ideal for walking and exploring. Back at your desirable home from home, sink into the sofas before the cosy wood burner in cooler months or spend time in the stone summer shelter or on the patio, kids playing, hounds snoozing by your feet.

Relish the supreme comfort of this rural cottage’s surprisingly generous open-plan ground-floor living accommodation which is finished to a high standard and is really family friendly. The warm wood flooring is echoed by the exposed ceiling beams, adding charm and a sense of history. The well-equipped kitchen could bear witness to some culinary triumphs that you can eat at the space-saving breakfast bar for four. Upstairs, a stylish king-size and a fun bunk bedroom await for sweet dreams. A door from the kitchen leads to the outside space, comprising a stone-built shelter with a furnished sitting area and a secure patio, accessed via steps, with lovely views over the surrounding village and hills.

The whole pack will enjoy wonderful walks – including on the South West Coast Path – from this traditional cottage that’s also ideally located for trips out. The National Trust’s meadows lead to the dog-friendly beach (0.5 miles), part of the UNESCO World Heritage Jurassic Coast. Enjoy a pint and a meal in the pub after admiring the wonderful cottages of this pretty village. Further afield, esplanades and pebbly beaches await at the Regency gem of Sidmouth (8 miles), at Beer (2.5 miles) and at Seaton (4.5 miles).

Very enjoyable stay in this cosy, well positioned cottage. Everything we needed was on hand. Parking is an issue but we found a spot a few minutes walk away.

The Haven is an excellent holiday cottage, well equipped, very clean and comfortable. Nice little garden to relax in the sun over a glass of wine. The cottage is set in a lovely village, with a good pub just across the road serving good food. It is only 15minutes walk to the beach over a good path. Lovely walks right from the doorstep with access tRead moreo the Coast Path. Hide

The info to get the key said to the left, but to the left the row of cottages carried on. So you have to walk to the end of the cottages turn right up an alley to the cottage then the key is in an outside summer house. Not good. Had issues with the wifi, I saw the log ons in a folder, but they were old ones, also router was turned off. The TV had Read more no sound, I managed to get in touch with the owner who didn't want to know. Told me to go and see you In Beer, we had just come back from there. Then said go to the beach you'll get a signal, we couldn't. I asked him to call you, but he wouldn't. I managed to get in touch with the office who then had to get the owner to call me on the landline, and tell me how to reset the TV. Not my forte, but I managed to do it. Also I have never been to a property where no milk had been left, only two sticks. As the shops are 2/3 miles away we didn't want to have to go out after we had just arrived. I asked in the pub and they gave me some milk. We would not go to Branscombe again. Hide

We knew the village as we have been before and The Haven was a lovely little base with everything you need. Lots of towels were provided which isnt always the case and overall the property was lovely and clean. The only small negative was that the pillows in the main bedroom didnt smell fresh, they had quite a nasty damp smell. So we just used someRead more of the spares from our childrens room and left them aside. It didnt spoil anything and we would still return but it was a little off putting upon arrival. Perhaps, as noted by others, a small welcome pack would go a long way. Hide
