Branscombe & Beer

Beer – Once a haven for smugglers is a quaint and charming fishing village with a pebbly beach surrounded by white cliffs and it is famous for it’s fish, crabs and lobsters. You can take to the water yourself for an angling trip or a sight seeing tour of the amazing Jurassic coastline, or even hire a boat for your own pleasure. A pretty stream runs alongside the main street through the town with its many fascinating shops, galleries, pubs and restaurants.

Branscombe – Branscombe is a truly picturesque village, situated in a wooded valley behind high cliffs with pretty slate roofed and thatched colour-washed cottages lining its winding single track road. There is an ancient 12th century church, an old working forge which is home to Branscombe vale brewery and a great thatched Inn. Branscombe is believed to be the longest village in the country and is a great walking destination with stunning cliff top walks to Sidmouth to the west or Beer to the east. Those keen on fishing can take mackerel fishing trips and there is an abundance of rock pools waiting to be explored.
