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


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. The Old Barn (HSSJ) dates back to the 16th century and has original exposed beams in all rooms and adjoins Clock Cottage (HSSI). 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 NT 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.

    We had a great holiday on a fine sunny week. The cottage is down a long lane and feels as if it is in the middle of nowhere. With sheep in the fields and regular glimpses of deer in the woods. A good place to holiday if you are a dog owner. It gave good access to Lyme Regis and other beaches. Be aware however that some beeches do not allow dogs from May- October.

    This is a beautiful cottage surrounded by nature. We saw deer and pheasant just outside our window. We wanted to escape for a few days and this certainly fitted the bill. Great location with lots to do and see locally. Had some beautiful walks. Our springer also enjoyed the freedom with lots to explore. A very warm welcome and owner on hand if needed. We had a lovely time and hope to return soon.

    A lovely warm and cosy cottage down a mile long track, which was perfect for our family of 4 plus our dog. Though we were glad there was no snow in December this year. Cottage owner and Tan the dog friendly but also leave you to your own personal space which was what we wanted. Welcoming jam, cream and scones on arrival. Good dog walking areas around the cottage and only a short drive from local coastal areas. Small enclosed garden. Would recommend to others.
