Branscombe House is situated on a small country lane on the fringes of the picturesque and highly desirable village of Branscombe, approximately a mile and a half from the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline at Branscombe Mouth and Lyme Bay and just under one mile walk from the coast at Coxes Cliff. There are many delightful walks in the immediate vicinity including the South West Peninsular Coastal Path where there are magnificent views over this dramatic stretch of coastline.

Branscombe is a lovely scattered village with one of the longest village street's in the country, and is not only situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but much of the surrounding land is owned by the National Trust. The village has an active community and range of facilities which include a village hall, pretty Parish Church of St Winifred's, two popular public houses and an old forge. There is also a primary school and Branscombe lies within easy reach of the renowned Colyton Grammar School, one of England's top mixed state schools, and Sidmouth which has a range of schooling both state and private.
The premier coastal resort of Sidmouth is approximately 5 miles along the coastline and has a beautiful Regency front and esplanade and a good range of shopping facilities. Honiton is approximately 9.5 miles away and also has an extensive range of shops, schools and sporting facilities, as well as a main line rail link to London (Waterloo).
The County Town of Exeter is about 18 miles to the west with a comprehensive range of shopping facilities, M5 access and international airport. Branscombe has the dual benefit of lying in one of East Devon's most sought after and unspoilt areas, yet is readily accessible to all the region's facilities.

The Property

Branscombe House is a particularly handsome and substantial period residence which stands in a prominent position on the small village lane. It was formerly two cottages which were built on the site of an old farmhouse and is of traditional construction with stone elevations under a slated roof.

The accommodation is beautifully presented and has been the subject of an ongoing programme of improvement over the recent years. Brand new quality bespoke kitchen/breakfast room and utility with under-floor heating, new boiler and wood burners. This has resulted in the well-appointed home of great character we find today, which retains a wealth of period features such as exposed stone and brick walls, many feature fireplaces, and quality architraves. The current owners not only live at Branscombe House but they also run a ‘lifestyle’ Bed and Breakfast which has received excellent reviews and a high degree of repeat business. The accommodation is laid out on three floors and is particularly adaptable and could suit a wide variety of different needs. It is currently set up as 3/4 letting rooms on the first floor, whilst the second floor is used as owner's accommodation. The property also has further potential (subject to any planning consents) and could provide an annexe/wing by incorporating the garage and one of the first floor bedrooms.

To summarise, Branscombe House is a well-proportioned and flexible house in one of East Devon's most attractive coastal villages and we are sure it will have great appeal to those looking for a spacious family home, those with extended family, or for those looking to generate an income.

Gardens and Grounds

Branscombe House is approached from the village lane over a gravelled driveway which provides parking for several vehicles and gives access to the integral large garage which has an electric roller door. Part of this garage has been sectioned off to provide a utility room to the main house. 'The gardens lie to the west of the property. There is a gravel path surrounding the property and a small stone wall in which there is one step leading up from the sunroom to a patio area with seating areas for several people. There are then further steps up to a lawned area culminating in a charming canopied seating area’ with views over the gardens to the house and beyond.
