An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


Branscombe beach is only 2 miles away and the Jurassic Coast is nearby. Visit beautiful locations such as Lulworth Cove, Chesil Beach and Durdle Door.

Rockenhayne Farmstead is situated on one side of a deep valley within 60 acres of woodland and meadowland. Experience natural beauty and an abundance of wildlife, within 3 miles of Branscombe beach. Driving down the mile-long drive, through the woods and fields, look out for deer and other wildlife. The properties are set in the owner’s grounds, but retain their own privacy; they are spacious and furnished to a very good standard. Clock Cottage (HSSI) is one of a pair, and Maple Tree Cottage (HSSK) is a detached barn conversion, ideal for families. Many walks can be taken from the door and for bird watchers this is a haven for buzzards and woodpeckers. The village of Branscombe has two hostelries, a post office/store, a couple of tea rooms and a working forge. Beer is only a 10-minute drive away. The Dorset and East Devon Coast, known as the Jurassic Coast, features many natural landmarks including Lulworth Cove, Chesil Beach and Durdle Door, and offers a selection of the finest sandy beaches to be found in the UK. The Jurassic Coast is ideal for exploring on foot, by bicycle or on horseback. Branscombe is a haven for walkers, with a cluster of thatched and stone cottages nestling alongside a narrow lane at the bottom of a wooded valley. There is so much to do; take a trip on the tram in Seaton, or visit the nearby donkey sanctuary. Sidmouth boasts a beach and each year holds a folk festival. Beer has a lovely pebble beach and plenty of shops and restaurants and quarry/caves which is open to visitors. Honiton market town is the home of Honiton lace and a street market on a Saturday. Many National Trust properties can be found close by. Shop 1½ miles, pub 2 miles.

    Had a fab week at Clock cottage. The cottage has a goid layout and worked really well for the 6 of us and dog for Christmas. We also had a surprise visitor on Christmas Eve. My neice arrived home from 2 years of travelling. Rosie ( the owner) kindly arranged for an additional bed etc to be provided to accommodate her for the remainder of the week. Although you need a car to get to places from the cottage, it is well located for Sidmouth, Beer and Branscombe; and not to far to get to the River Cottage at Axminster.

    The mile long journey to the cottage was a bumpy one and not suitable for cars with low profile tyres. The guy who greeted us was very nice and brought us scones and cream, which were very nice. He said that there was some problem with one of the downstairs showers which overflow because of the family who stayed there the week before. The cottage was neat and tidy and towels available. There were 4 of us and a pet, so two of us slept downstairs and the other two upstairs. One of the rules was that dogs were not allowed in the bedrooms or upstairs, where the kitchen and living room were. The only area they were allowed would be the downstairs corridor and toilet. I think they should probably set some of the rules on the site in order to avoid disappointment on arrival. The only reason we booked the cottage was because pets were allowed but if they are not allowed anywhere else in the cottage, then maybe it should state not suitable for pets?? Anyways, the upstairs floor is very very squeaky and if you are sleeping downstairs, then a full night sleep isn't guaranteed no matter how comfy the bed is. So we didn't get a single full night sleep. I read some reviews and found out that some reviewers had raised this as an issue but nothing done about it. I tested the shower which overflows if we stay too long in it and about 30 seconds later, if it started overflowing. So basically this shower does not overflow, just got blocked drain or needs fixing. This was raised by other reviewers as well but not dealt with. The other bathroom available downstairs had a broken lock so had to shower hoping no one will walk in! Good size washing machine. Good size lounge and variety of board games available. Lovely walk in the woods. There are no local amenities so had to drive to nearby villages. The mile long drive to the main road was not fun I have to admit, which is why we couldn't go out in the evenings. Lots of cooking utensils were available but no blender... Internet was quite good and had freeview tv. I think for the price we paid, we got really good value for money. Just thought that our holiday would have been more enjoyable if more attention was given to the cottage. It needs some TLC. There should be more transparency regarding the house rules for pets and problems raised by guests must be really taken into consideration. I hope the owner will take on these feedbacks and help make guests stay more pleasant.

    What a lovely spot, and what a lovely cottage. Spacious and cosy, and a most friendly and helpful owner. It felt just like home when we got back from a visit to the delightful p[laces around it. We intend to revisit!

    The only problem is the mile long track down to the cottage, but that means the situation is really quiet and the bird life is fantastic. Our hostess, Rosemary, was fantastic, as was her dog, Star (if you needed some exercise, throwing the ball or stick for her would wear off many pounds). Great accommodation and value for money.
