The Dorset and East Devon Coast, known as the Jurassic Coast, features many natural landmarks including Lulworth Cove, Chesil Beach and Durdle door, and extends over 95 miles from Exmouth to Christchurch, offering a selection of the finest sandy beaches to be found in the UK.
It is the only natural UNESCO World Heritage Site in England, ranking the Jurassic Coast alongside the Grand Canyon and Great Barrier Reef as one of the natural wonders of the world.
Exploring the Jurassic Coast
The Jurassic Coast is ideal for exploring on foot, by bicycle or on horseback. All of our cottages in East Devon are situated in what are known as the 'gateway towns and villages' to the Jurassic Coast.

A holiday cottage in Branscombe, East Devon, is a haven for walkers and guests seeking a quiet country holiday in an unspoilt coastal village. With a cluster of thatched and stone cottages nestling alongside a narrow lane at the bottom of a wooded valley, Branscombe is believed to be the longest village in the country.
Two local hostelries, a P/O store, Norman church, couple of tea rooms and a working forge are the main facilities of the village, so this is a location more suited to visitors seeking peace and quiet in their Branscombe holiday cottage. Branscombe also offers a fine selection of dog friendly holiday cottages.
Surrounded by narrow lanes, National Trust footpaths and coastal walks, the village is especially popular for walking holidays in Devon whilst gourmets seek to enjoy the culinary delights and real ales served in the Masons Arms Inn (See our Food & Drink pages).
