Branscombe Cottages

Branscombe, situated on the Jurassic Coast and in the East Devon AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) is a holiday location like no other. Our holiday cottages in Branscombe put you in the perfect location from which to explore this Devonshire village’s amazing coastline, historic buildings and quaint countryside life. Thatched roofs famously decorate the Branscombe skyline and many of cottages to rent in the area are of the same design, so you can experience the local architecture of the area, as well as a comfortable resting place. Across Branscombe, we also have a number of dog-friendly and luxury holiday cottages, which hopefully offer something for a variety of wants and needs.  

Visiting Branscombe 

A trip to Branscombe not only puts you in prime location to visit a number of coastal spots in Devon and Dorset, but there is also plenty to keep you entertained in the village itself. Starting with Branscombe beach, the village’s most popular attraction. Although Branscombe Beach is not renowned for its sandy shores, offering a shingle bay instead, as part of the Jurassic Coast this fascinating beach offers hours of fun exploring its rockpools and collecting shells and ancient rocks and stones. Dogs are also welcome on the grassy areas of the beach, although during summer there is a dog ban 150 metres either side of the pole in front of the cafe, which is clearly signposted.  

The cafe on the beach is called the Sea Shanty Cafe and has a lovely outdoor dining area and prides itself on its local menu. Their salads, eggs, pasties and cakes are all made within walking distance of the beach! There are a number of other great local eateries in the area, including The Masons Arms Pub, a 14th Century thatched pub with a brilliant menu and even better selection of local beers. The Fountain Inn is another popular local pub and is famed locally for its Sunday roasts.  

Branscombe is also a great spot for a walking holiday, as it is right on the South West Coast Path and the village’s fascinating historic buildings also make for an interesting walk. The clifftop walk to Beer beach, just one mile eastward, rewards walkers with some of the best views of the Jurassic coast, while Seaton Hole is just a little farther down the path at 4 miles away.  

Within Branscombe itself, visitors may want to embark on the local National Trust History Trail. Starting at the car park, you can walk through to the orchards, past the Old Bakery Tearooms (perfect for a comfort break), and then through two more fields before you reach the Millenium Orchard. From here, you can walk towards the Manor Mill working watermill and then take a right up the hill (which can be a little steep) to reach the bridle path and woods. At the woods, turn left to reach the beach, or go right to visit Branscombe church before returning to the car park.  

If that’s not enough to entice you to Branscombe, than the village also hosts a number of events throughout the year, including Branscombe Air Day and the Classic Car Rally, held in July.
