Countryside around Branscombe

Out and About

Branscombe is set in an "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty" with a great deal of the surrounding land and beaches belonging to the National Trust. The lane winds down through the village to the Branscombe Mouth with its unspoilt beach and Coastal Path. This stretch of the coastlines, known as The Jurassic Coast, was made a World Heritage Site at the beginning of 2002.

The lanes in spring are littered with wild daffodils and primroses and wild garlic grows in profusion. A wealth of wildlife inhabits the woods and fields.

Countryside around Branscombe

There are a variety of walks of all lengths either from the house or a starting point nearby. We will be happy to offer recommendations.

The Church of Saint Winifred is one of the most interesting and architecturally important parish churches in Devon. The building dates from late Norman times with remains of an earlier Saxon building on the same site.

Summerhouse

The thatched forge is still working. Opposite is a tea shop in what, until 1987, used to be the bakery. A working mill, just downstream, is open to the public.

On the outskirts of Branscombe is The Donkey Sanctuary

The nearby towns and villages of Sidmouth, Beer, Honiton and Lyme Regis provide a wealth of places to visit.

Or simply spend the day on the beach!

"The setting is magical because the valley is quintessentially Devon, and walking to the beach is a joy"
