Two of us plus two dogs stayed for 3 nights. We had a large ground floor bedroom which opened on to a lovely terrace/flower garden. The bathroom was magnificent with both a shower and a bath. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming and they really love well behaved dogs. The hotel is hidden away in a wooded valley...

We spent a night here on our way to Cornwall and stayed in one of the cottages and had a lovely spacious room with huge bathroom. Our dog was allowed in the room.

We've stayed here recently and its a fab place, the staff are super friendly and the rooms are all very modern and to a good standard. Its a great place if you want to get away from it all. The food is very good and somewhere we will definitely go back to again in the future.

During a short visit to England, our daughter booked Masons Arms, she couldn't have chosen better. The location is ideal, near the sea and beautiful countryside for walks. The rooms were comfortable and well kept. The outstanding factor was the high standard of service in the restaurant, pub and bar, by the courteous, friendly and obliging staff. Masons Arms is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestling in the heart of Branscombe, one of Britain's most picturesque villages, is the award winning, 14th Century, The Masons Arms. This charming thatched Inn dates back to 1350 - a cider house turned country pub - and the men who cut the stone for Exeter Cathedral drank here, hence the name. With only a leisurely ten minute stroll to Branscombe Beach, The Masons Arms offers an ideal base to escape the stresses of modern life and enjoy the magical vista of sea, beaches and the spectacular walks offered by the ninety five miles of Devon and Dorset's Jurassic Coast. The authentic interiors ooze character with timber frames, low beamed ceilings, pine cladding, whitewashed walls and a huge roaring log fire. Our award winning Restaurant offers an exciting and creative menu in relaxed fine dining surroundings. The Masons Arms kitchen brigade are dedicated to sourcing the very best of local Dartmoor produce. The cooking is classy yet simple, perfect for a special meal or relaxing Country lunch. We serve as many as six locally brewed bitters and the finest wines from around the world. The 21 bedrooms at the Masons Arms Branscombe, are cosy, stylish and inviting, blending comfort with character. The Masons Arms has been awarded a FOUR STAR rating under the Inn category by Quality in Tourism. ... more   less
