A lovely old barn dating back to the 1500s, just a 10-miute drive from Beer and within easy access of the coast.

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.

    Lovely well kept property in a beautiful setting with everything you need inhouse, the only downside is the rather bumpy private road leading to the house.

    A lovely place to stay. Really homely and welcoming. A bit remote down an unmade lane so a few pot holes to watch for but one day we followed a buzzard as we slowly drove, and it was right in front of us.
