From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


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.

    Lovely relaxing place to stay. Rosemary greeted us on arrival and showed us around the cottage. Lovely welcome pack of home made scones, jam, local cheese, chutney and biscuits; she couldn't have done any more for us. A good base to visit both Devon and Dorset and we were blessed by good weather. Just be careful of the entrance into the drive/ track as you suddenly come across it from quite a fast road! Give other drivers plenty of notice if you're about to slow down and turn off!

    Rosemary (and the dogs) made us feel very welcome and the cottage itself was comfortable and spacious. I would recommend it.

    Cottage is in a lovely position. The track was bumpy but not a problem. The things that let the property down are uncomfortable sofas and chairs, inadequate kitchen work surfacesand the upstairs bedroom floor squeaks so badly it wakes up anyone sleeping in the bedroom below. The property needs updating. Having to take your rubbish to the end of the mile long track was a pain especially on the day you're leaving when your car is already full.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback. From the photos, you can see there is plenty of preparation surface in the kitchen. We had not had any complaint about creaky floorboards before, however we will certainly investigate this and see if we need to go ahead and lay carpet as a better alternative; unless people feedback, we are not always aware of problems. Again, we will give attention to the other issues you have raised and see if we need to take further action to update the sofa suite for example, though it is a good quality one. Unfortunately, these matters are always subjective, and for the other guests who have left reviews, 10 out of 10, saying that the property is very 'comfortable', well, it's a challenge to meet everyone's ideal, given each individual has a different appreciation of all things. This is an historic, country cottage as you can see in the photos. Thank you.
