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.

    The cottage itself was everything we wanted. Nicely remote in beutifull surroundings. Our hosts were wonderful and the welcome scones and homemade jam were delicious. The only fault was the garden facilities for the dogs. This was reached through the bedroom, (muddy paws treking through the cottage), and not secure for small terriers. This is the only reason we would not return.

    In a lovely quiet location, the living area was very nice but the bedrooms were rather damp smelling.

    The cottage itself was very nice, and as described. However, its location at the end of a mile long lane from the road, down a rough and in places overgrown lane meant dodging ruts and getting a very scratched car. It was quite remote and we didn't see a soul other than the owner twice. You needed a car to go anywhere, but the area itself around Branscombe is lovely. If you want solitude, this is the place to go.

    This cottage is absolutely ideal, the views are amazing as is the woodland walks, not a soul in sight yet close enough for shops, beach and other towns to visit! If you want a peaceful holiday then this is the place to come!

    Warm welcome with a lovely cream tea. Private garden very small. Double bed very uncomfortable. Didn't appreciate having to strip the beds by 9am on the leaving day.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We have now replaced the mattress with a new high quality one. We live in the most beautiful countryside with woodland walks, and you are (for the most part) free to roam through 60 acres. There is an outdoor seating area overlooking a lovely pastoral scene of fields and the valley. Our staff will strip the beds once guests have left.

    The most amazing place for a relaxing holiday away from it all. We loved walking in the grounds and seeing all the wildlife and the place was great for dogs. You would need a car to get to to any amenities but they are only about 10 mins drive away. Sidmouth beach was lovely with nice coffee shops and we had a couple of trips there. Rosie is the most friendly, lovely, accommodating lady you can meet and she gave us a warm welcome with her home made scones, yum yum :) Would definitely go back!
