The flat is located in the centre of a small village only a few staggering steps from the pub, and a 15 minute stroll from the beach. We loved the quiet and peace we found in the village, and the sunshine made all the difference.
The flat is well equipped with a small cupboard of food essentials like salt and sugar. The rooms are not large by our home standards, more like cosy. Not the most comfortable bed I have slept in, but after a couple of beers who cares? We walked along the coast path to Beer - and back again and were able to explore the area around East Devon, an area of outstanding beauty that seems to be stuck in a time warp. Would love to go back for more of the same.

The accommodation was very good with everything you would need. Situated in a perfect location with lovely walks to the beach and surrounding areas. Would definitely choose this accommodation again.

“Perfect Location and Great Value”

My family and I go to East Devon every year and we have stayed at Nestlecombe a number of times now. We love the quiet village of Branscombe, and Nestlecombe is in a perfect location being just ten minutes walk from the large but quiet beach and just a one minute walk from the Masons Arms which serves good food and has a good selection of local ales. Within walking distance there is also a bakery serving excellent cream teas, a park for the children along with tennis court and another pub, The Fountains Head, which is another real ale heaven.!

The flat is comfortable and well equipped, and there is also a decent selection of books, DVDs and childrens games if they are needed at any time ! Some incredibly scenic walks are right on your doorstep here, there are great coastal walks in both directions (Beer to the east and Sidmouth to the west) and the coastal path to Beer (which starts at the caravan park just above the beach) is absolutely spectacular.

And not too far from Branscombe, there are some good attractions for the children including both the Pecorama and Quarry Caves in the neighbouring village of Beer, the donkey sanctuary just outside Branscombe and the tramway at Seaton. A little further afield there are plenty of childrens attractions for all ages such as Crealy Adventure Park, the World of Country Life at Exmouth and Bicton Gardens, all of which are near to Exeter which is a city that is certainly worth a visit.

Overall, Nestlecombe is great value accomodation situated in a wonderful part of East Devon
