A guide to the West Country from the people that know…

Branscombe

Once famous for its hand-made lace, the chocolate-box-pretty village of Branscombe rambles along narrow roads down a steep-sided valley to a shingle beach at Branscombe Mouth. Today, it's a popular starting point for walks along the Jurassic Coast on the South West Coast Path. The National Trust owns a substantial amount of land in the area as well as The Old Bakery, Mill and Forge.

A great place to stay.

We stayed here in a local cottage, what a lovely base, 2 great pubs, and some lovely cottages, the church, and the scenery from the wooded hillsides to the beach, everywhere you look, something to make you smile.
If there was a shop or two the place would be perfect.

A must see village - unspoilt beach and countryside, tearooms, two great village inns, exquisite Norman church. A perfect base to explore the beautiful East Devon coast.
