While away hours at a time gazing out across undulating East Devon when you stay at this modern cottage in Branscombe. Sleeping four guests, the two-bedroom retreat is an idyllic retreat for anyone seeking tranquillity and natural beauty, as well as proximity to the coast. Also welcoming a four-legged friend, this enchanting hideaway boasts a beautiful, lawned garden where you can kick back and soak up the serenity.

Enter this reverse-level bolthole to discover a large lounge/diner with many picture windows that frame the beautiful, countryside views. Play games in here, watch TV with your family and friends or simply gaze out across the hills towards the sea. Head through to the kitchen/diner to prepare delicious meals for your party to enjoy at the table in here or through in the lounge/diner. When you are ready to lay your head for the night, make your way down to the floor below, where a double bedroom and a twin are situated. The family bathroom is also at this level. Dine outside on the paved patio in the shade of the large, leafy tree or play games with the children or your pet on the lawn. There is parking for two cars at this house.

Dine out in a village pub in Branscombe or venture 4 miles into Seaton or 5.5 miles into Sidmouth to choose from a range of eateries. Wander less than 1 mile down to the scenic beach in Branscombe to swim and make sandcastles or pick up the South West Coast Path here and walk 2 miles along the cliffs to charming Beer, with its lovely beach.

1. The garden was not enclosed as described. At the bottom there was an unfenced/walled drop into either a large patch of nettles in someones garden or into a field with sheep. There was a loose piece of paving slab near the edge, that could send a child over the top.Also, part of the garden gate latch was missing and it couldnt be closed. ThRead moree garden furniture was unusable as all the paint was flaking off. 2. Many of the curtains were only partially attached as so many hooks were broken. 3. The cord on one of the blinds in the bedroom was unattached, so the blind had to be wound up manually. 4. Only 2 wire hangers in the wardrobe. Bedside lamp in bedroom was in very poor condition, the inner lining having broken down and fallen off. 5. Only one bed had a mattress cover. 6. I asked to rent bathroom towels for two of us. I had expected the usual supply of bath towel and hand towel each, plus a bath mat. All that was supplied was a bath towel each. 7. Various knobs came off in the kitchen and one of the roasting tins is probably a health hazard because of the flaking non stick surface. 8. The recycling receptacles werent complete, so we had to bring some things home with us to dispose of. I am happy to back my comments up with photos if you would like to see them. This house was saved by its location which is fantastic. Lovely views and so peaceful. The house feels distinctly unloved and uncared for, which is such a shame. We have stayed with you before and were very happy with our accommodation. If this had been our first stay, I doubt we would be using you again. Hide
