The cottage was a great base, all basics provided and secure garden for toddler and dog to play. Parking space for one car and a walk down to the beach in about 20 minutes either by the road to path or through the woods on a footpath. The coastal path looked amazing, hope to walk along it one day when the youngster is older. Lovely pebble beach at Branscombe with food available at the Sea Shanty. Dogs were on the beach during our stay in July on the whole of the beach.
Pub just by which also served food and the Donkey Sanctuary had great facilities and is well worth a look. The surrounding area was lovely with all properties and gardens looking amazing. Sidmouth and other lovely places only minutes away.
The property is down a very narrow lane which is fairly busy (goes to the beach), so be prepared in case you meet the regular bus service coming the other way! It would be nice if the cottage had a guest book just so suggestions/experiences could be shared with other guests but otherwise, an excellent break.
If you are looking for that special quintessential cottage, then look no further !! Yew Tree cottage is an amazing place to stay in an amazing location. This character cottage oozes with charm and truly is a unique place to stay and unwind. The cottage is extremely well equipped, a traditional stone floor runs through the ground floor, we found this particularly useful after a muddy dog walk. In fact a great place to stay with your dog as there are great walks literally on on your doorstep including a great walk from the cottage to the beach. We can't wait to return to Yew Tree in the very near future.
