Branscombe Old Bakery, Manor Mill and Forge

This cluster of pretty, thatched buildings date back over 200 years. See the blacksmith at work in the forge, stroll along the mill stream at the restored water mill and round off the day with a cream tea at the Old Bakery.

Delicious cakes and lovely staff

A perfect spot to end/begin/break a walk when staying in or around Branscombe. A good destination too if walking to Branscombe from Beer or Sidmouth. Delicious home made cakes daily (my favourite was the apple and cider cake), fresh scones daily for generous cream teas, and lovely friendly staff. I didn't try the lunches, but they looked divine too.
The goodies sold in the shop are also fab - the lemon and apple curd, made with apples from the orchard next to the bakery, was lush!
Dog friendly inside and out, which is helpful on the cooler or wetter days.

The National Trust looks after this collection of thatched buildings in one of the most beautiful coastal villages in Devon. Most of the surrounding countryside is also owned by the Trust. Visit the working mill and forge and enjoy a traditional cream tea in the Old Bakery. There is also a lovely walk to the beach.
