OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Set in the heart of the south Devon village of Branscombe, nestled between the seaside towns of Sidmouth and Seaton on the Jurassic Coast. The streets sweep down to a long shingle cove where you can pick up the South West Coastal Path and walk to the charming village of Beer. It's a gorgeous coastal walk that includes strenuous stretches of uphill climbing; the effort is well worth it for the spectacular views of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.

By car: The hotel is 45 minutes from Exeter, just under 2 hours from Bristol and 3 hours 30 mins from London. There is free parking on-site.

By train: Honiton station is a 20-minute drive from the hotel with trains from London Waterloo (3 hours) and Exeter St David's (30 mins). Book trains to Honiton.
