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, all 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 (ref HSSJ) dates back to the 16th century, has original exposed beams in all rooms, and adjoins Clock Cottage (ref HSSI). Maple Tree Cottage (ref HSSK) is a detached barn conversion, ideal for families.

Many walks can be taken from the door and for birdwatchers, 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, Durdle Door and Chesil Beach, 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, plenty of shops and restaurants, and quarry/caves which is open to visitors. Honiton market town is the home of Honiton lace and hosts a street market on a Saturday. Many National Trust properties can be found close by. Shop 1½ miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
These properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 16 guests.

We stayed at clock cottage in sept, the owner is lovely and provided us with warm scones on arrival & local cheese, chutney and jam which was welcomed. The cottage does require a little tlc it’s a bit tired looking, 2of the 3 showers are rubbish. The location is beautiful & very peaceful just what we wanted, however there’s nothing in walking distance a car is an absolute must. The local village of Branscombe is fabulous 3 great pubs which are all dog friendly and there’s great walks too. If we return it will be to one of the cottages on site.
