Gill Cottage

This beautiful period thatched cottage is perfect - with exposed stone walls, inglenook fireplace and deep window seats it’s packed with character. Situated in the heart of Branscombe, Gill Cottage is close to the beach, village store and pubs.

Gill Cottage has four comfortable bedrooms sleeping eight guests. A cosy sitting room and a dining room, both with stoves to keep you warm whatever the weather. The shaker style kitchen is very well equipped with everything you’ll need and if you don’t fancy cooking, just pop into one of the local pubs for dinner. Outside Gill Cottage has a lovely lawned garden, perfect for children and the dog to play in while you relax with a coffee and put your feet up.

Branscombe is in a sheltered bay on the beautiful World Heritage Jurassic Coast. The village has a couple of good pubs and a dog-friendly beach with a great cafe serving fresh seafood. Take a walk along the dramatic cliff hugging coastal path to Beer beach and stroll around the village. Take a fishing trip or delve into Beer Quarry Caves, just a short drive away. Beer 2 miles, Sidmouth 3 miles.
