A delightful detached ’Chocolate Box’ thatched cottage, Grade II listed, retaining its charming period features, believed to be one of the oldest 16th century cottages in Branscombe. Idyllically situated in a large cottage style garden with its 500 year old yew tree and surrounded by beautiful National Trust countryside, in this picturesque seaside village. A delight for birdwatchers, with gold crests in the yew tree and buzzards, red kites and peregrine falcons soaring the skies above the cottage.
The lovely beach with its licensed restaurant, cafe and shop is a five minute drive away or reached by walking through the bluebell woods and along the spectacular Jurassic coastline. The Fountain Head traditional inn serving excellent home cooked food and local brews is only a stone’s throw away. Also in the village is the renowned Mason Arms Inn serving an ’A la Carte’ menu, P.O. selling basic provisions, a working forge, Old Bakery Tea Rooms and Gardens with a working water mill nestling nearby to Branscombe’s beautiful Norman church. Many walks on the doorstep along the spectacular coastline and in the wooded coombes and beautiful valleys, with their abundance of wildflowers in the hedgerows.
The picturesque fishingvillageofBeerand the Regency coastal town ofSidmouth, with all its amenities, are just a short drive away. Sidmouth’s Donkey Sanctuary, famous for homing thousands of donkeys in acres of pastureland with lovely walks to Weston Mouth is well worth a visit. Yew tree Cottage is a truly idyllic retreat!
