An exquisite character cottage which has recently undergone a comprehensive and sympathetic refurbishment to create a charming holiday retreat that is both well appointed and offers high levels of comfort. Full of traditional features including exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces, window seats and little cupboards tucked away here and there - not a straight wall in sight. Ideal for larger families sharing holidays and equally suitable as a romantic getaway for couples. The Fountain Head Inn is a real treat for food lovers and serves local ales from the Branscombe Vale Brewery.

A lovely cottage in a fabulous location next to an excellent pub. I'm not sure the village and beach could be any more perfect.

Mr W,

We were a little concerned about the proximity to the The Fountain Head pub but had no problems at all.

Dr B,

We were delighted with the cottage. Tall people should be aware of low ceilings/beams.

Mr K,
