The Devon region

The local village is extremely picturesque and recently won the coveted title of ‘England’s Prettiest Village’. There are long winding Devon roads and beautiful thatched cottages, and of course the world famous '"cream teas"!


Believed to be the longest village in the country, it sweeps along a spectacular valley past colourful cottages down to the sea. Branscombe has two main historic working buildings, The Old Bakery and The Forge which are popular attractions, and close to the National Trust Tea Rooms too! Life in Branscombe centres around the two pubs, The Fountain Head is a CAMRA pub & is a must for the discerning beer drinker and The Masons Arms, award winning for it’s consistently wonderful food in the heart of Branscombe village.

The surrounding countryside is a walker’s delight. The coastal path has impressive views and takes you to Sidmouth to the west and the historic fishing village of Beer to the east.

"Great Chill out location"

Drive up to your chalet, unload the car, then leave car in car park by the local thatched roof cafe/restaurant and forget it. 10 minute walk to village pub with fab food etc. Or walk over the cliffs to Beer. Chalet is spotless, has all amenities, good hot shower and a veranda to sit out on overlooking the sea with a nice glass of wine!! What more can you ask for!!. Fishing trips available from the beach at peak times of the year, or more regularly from Beer or Lyme Regis. I took my two elderly chihuahuas to Snipe, they loved it, we are already planning our next long weekend.

Thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review about our chalet in Branscombe and we are pleased that you had a great stay. We hope to see you again soon! Best wishes, Paul & Pippa

"Wonderful beach setting and memorable break"

We revisited Snipe chalet after an eighteen year break! Some things had changed; there was more sand on the beach after the storms of 2012 and the gravel road in front of the chalet was half its size. What had not changed was the cleanliness and pleasantness of the chalet, the wonderous views from the balcony, the sounds of waves breaking on a shoreline barely 20 metres away, the remarkable sunsets, the fantastic beach strolls, the beautiful cliff walks and the occasional evening amble into Branscombe for a little light refreshment.

Thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review about your stay in Branscombe. We are really pleased that you had a lovely time and that even after all the years since your last visit, things are still as you remember them! We hope to see you again in the future (maybe sooner than another 18 years)! Wit thanks & best wishes, Paul & Pippa

We booked an easter break with a 4 and 2 year old. The chalet is lovely and was equipped with everything you could need, from loads of towels, extra blankets, dvd 's and family games. A really lovely touch was the bread, milk and butter which was left for us. Perfect location, lovely accommodation and great relaxing break. Would definitely recommend it

"Perfect getaway"

'Snipe' chalet in Branscombe was a perfect place to stay in probably the nicest part of the West Country that I have ever stayed in. Perfect location on the beach, very quiet and completely unspoilt. Everything in the chalet that you could need with a few extras as well. Great value for money and great communication from the owners. Overall, I cannot recommend the beach chalet in Branscombe highly enough and will definitely be returning again!

Thank you for taking the time to write such lovely comments about our chalet in Branscombe. We are really pleased that you enjoyed a relaxing break in our chalet and we hope to see you again in the future. Best wishes, Paul

"Peaceful Perfection"

The location is incredibly peaceful and beautiful - if you're looking for a peaceful stay, look no further. The chalet itself is very comfortable and has all the amenities you would need, with a sunny balcony to sit out on and watch the waves lap the shore. There is plenty to do nearby with good pubs in the village, beautiful villages nearby and plenty of good restaurants. There are great walks accessible from the beach, and good guides in the chalet if you want to go further afield. Beer is close by with shops and restaurants and you're not far from Lyme Regis. It is hard though, to drag yourself away from such a perfect location which you can enjoy in perfect comfort.

Thank you for taking the time to review our chalet in Branscombe and we are pleased to read that you had a lovely stay. We hope to see you again in the future! With thanks and best wishes, Paul

"Excellent "Home from Home""

We stayed at Branscombe on the 19th May 2014 for a long weekend and right from the start everything was amazing! Paul and Pippa were very helpful and answered any questions or queries very quickly. There is a car parking permit so no car parking charges on the site. On arrival Julie, the Housekeeper had kindly left us some bread and milk in the fridge. The chalet is lovely and spotlessly clean and what made it home from home were all the "extras" hanging seashells, pictures and ornaments. Lots of dvds, books, games, a radio the list is endless. Also there was coffee, sugar, baked beans, oxo cubes, salt and pepper and many extras in the kitchen. Towels, tea towels, soap, washing up liquid I could just go on and on! In the main bedroom the double bed is high and enables you to look at the sea (the chalet is higher than the beach so you cannot be seen!) T.V in the bedroom as well. The second bedroom has two single beds and again toys and games for children and even fluffy hot-water bottles! There are heaters for when it gets cold and a fan for when its warm. The lounge and bathroom were both bigger than we were expecting and we sat on the balcony overlooking the sea, which has two chairs provided. Amazing views of the beach and sea. The beach is pebbly but there are occasional sandy spots. There a lovely walks to the pub at Branscombe Village and for the more adventurous you can walk from Branscombe to Beer over the cliffs. We were lucky with the weather but I would recommend this holiday home to everyone - we can't wait to go back!

Thank you for writing such a lovely review about our chalet in Branscombe. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that you felt like it was 'home from home'. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future! With thanks and best wishes, Paul & Pippa

"Absolutely loved this place!"

We spent a weekend here. Everything about the chalet exceeded expectation. The setting was fabulous ... a great big expanse of sea with the constant sound of rolling waves. The chalet is compact (but then it is a chalet!) and very tastefully presented. Not sure if I would manage a week in it though! All the administration was easy and thorough and the woman who was managing it was very helpful. I would have loved an easy chair or two so that you didn't always have to sit on the caravan style banquette seats. We had a few hours of being able to have the 'patio' doors open and that was amazing! We walked to Beer and back on the Saturday morning along the coast path which was just stunning ... and chips and a pint at a pub in Beer was the icing on the cake. I wish you could rent the chalet for two nights (the minimum is three but we could only go for two) and the rental was quite steep for two nights. Will definitely go back though!

Thank you for your kind comments and I am glad you enjoyed your stay. All the best Paul

We have just returned from a four night short break, along with two friends, where we stayed in the SNIPE chalet on Branscombe Beach. You could not get nearer the sea unless you were on a boat. The chalet was superb,very well equipped four four persons, having a double bedroom and a twin bedroom both with storage space. and a perfectly adequate kitchen with dining area. It was spotlessly clean and everything the advertisement said it would be. To fall asleep to the sound of the waves rushing onto the beach is heaven. The location is perfect with plenty of walks, The walk to the Masons Arms about 25mins away was a lovely way to start and end an evening after a brilliant meal. We did not need to get the car out for the whole of the stay, it was just our choice to drive in to Lyme Regis about 10 miles away.

Thank you for your kind comments and we hope to see you again soon.

"relaxing and feeling of being miles from anywhere."

Really tidy and well equiped chalet. Mix of weather during our stay, heaters on and listening to the wind and rain feeling cosy inside but most days the double doors were open and I enjoyed reading a book while the children played on the beach and Dad cast his fishing rod up and down the coast line. We parked the car and did not use it for the whole week. Lovely off road walks to local pubs and coast/cliff walks to Beer (time it with the local bus and bring back some shopping - not regular times so check time table). Thought a little expensive for a chalet but once there it compared to renting a cottage. Hoping to return...........

Thank you for your review and we are glad you had a relaxing time and we hope to see you again soon.
