Description

Explore the beauty of the Jurassic coast, relax on the beach at Durdle Door or Lulworth Cove and wander around the lace town of Honiton.

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.

Beamed living/dining room with wood-burning stove and kitchen area. Two steps down to double bedroom with 5ft bed. Twin bedroom. Shower room with toilet.

    Great cottage, lovely owner who made us very welcome, everything you need to ensure the stay is comfortable. would definately recommend this cottage to anyone who likes peace and quiet in a tranquil setting. If I had to find a negative, it would be that, at the end of our stay, we was asked to strip the beds down on the morning of our departure, which we found strange as every other cottage we have ever stayed in, we wasn't given a wash basket to place our used bedding in!

    A beautiful cottage with a fantastic view. Well equipped, with a lovely owner living nearby who was always more than happy to advise about local activities and any queries about the accommodation. We were welcomed with a cream tea, local cheese and crackers and a pot of honey! Breakfast on a lovely patio terrace started every day, with swallows swooping around our heads. The only downside was the long and narrow drive, but you can't have it all - if you want remote and picturesque, you have to go down the track to get there! A lovely relaxing and quiet location, particurly if you have dogs.

    Fantastic cottage and great location. The cottage was easy to find, and a mile down a track it stood the most beautiful valley. It was more than the pictures described. Very clean and well equipped, under door heating made it lovely and warm. The owner was more than helpful with a welcome basket that was delightful waiting for us on our arrival.

    Lovely traditional cottage in stunning tranquil location. Beautiful scenery out of every window. French doors out onto decking and garden. Lovely log burner and a very friendly owner. We will definitely stay again if we are back in east Devon.
