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.

    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!

    Very nice cottage and owner very helpful and friendly. The cottage is in a lovely area although some may find the mile long track down a bit bumpy depending on car they own. Very peaceful and tranquil. You do have to drive everywhere but the walks on the doorstep are lovely. There are lots of nice places and seasides to visit.

    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.
