    This is where I stay each time I visit Branscombe. It's location is perfect. I can easily walk to the beach in one direction or visit the forge, bakery or post office in the other. The staff is friendly and helpful also.

    Sorry, also no picture of the rooms but you certainly can eat in the bar and they will also book a table there for you and you can have your dog with you. Like the bar area better than the restaurant.
