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, 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.

    Lovely cottage set in beautiful woodlands. Wonderfully warm during the miserable weather. Although there are other properties nearby, it’s completely private and very quiet. The bed is really comfortable and the shower was good and strong. Drinking water tastes beautiful - completely natural - no chemicals.

    This is a beautiful well equipped cottage, set in a wonderful location, however, I would say that it would not suit everyone due to its isolation, for us, and our two golden retrievers, it was perfect. The owner, Rosemary, was readily accessible but never intrusive and her welcome pack and freshly made scones were very much appreciated.

    A warm welcome by the owner, with warm cream scones and jam. Lovely touches including a few basics like washing up supplies, soap, tea towels and even salt and pepper. Pretty cottage in beautiful surroundings. So peaceful and quiet. We slept so well. It was just the holiday we needed.

    Lovely stay at the cottage, and Rosemary the owner very welcoming and lives on site so can help if any issues. Cottage well equipped, even jigsaw, games and books. Our dog settled well too. So peaceful there, relaxing and near Sidmouth for shops and we also loved Beer beach close by. The donkey sanctuary was our favourite place we visited. Other reviews mentioned the mile long track to the cottage but there is hardly any traffic and when you do meet anyone there are passing places so not a problem. The woodland walks on the farm are also a plus. Great place.

    Just returned from a week spent at Rockenhayne Farmstead - Maple Tree Cottage 19th -26th May 2018. We found the cottage to be very clean and more than adequately equipped with everything we needed for the duration of our stay, we were warmly greeted by owner Rosemary, who then presented us with freshly baked scones homemade jam and cream, all of which were delicious. The cottage is remotely situated but not alone at the end of a mile long lane, there are two other holiday lets plus Rosemary's own house - although none of which were intrusive to our stay. I had misgivings on first reading that the lane was a mile long, but this proved to be unfounded concerns, the lane is well maintained and caused us no problems on either entering or leaving the property. The view over the surrounding countryside is stunningly beautiful and there are some great walks from the door, there is an abundance of wildlife to be seen and enjoyed well staying here. I can't fault this holiday cottage - it met with all of our needs and we had one extremely peaceful stay which was thoroughly enjoyed by myself and our son who came with us. There are some lovely places to visit, Beer and Seaton are within a few miles and there is The Donkey Sanctuary just along the main road from where we were, this place is certainly well worth a visit, along with The Wetlands in Seaton, the furthest we travelled were the ten miles to Lyme Regis, again another lovely place to visit. Well staying at the cottage there is also the added pleasure of sharing in the antics of Star, the resident dog who is indeed very friendly and more than happy to accompany you on your walks around the properties grounds or helping to keep you or your children entertained by her fetch and throw games. Great holiday and destination, would most definitely return again.
