    • “Great location in the centre of Branscombe and only a short walk to the beach. Very comfortable property with everything catered for and a very flexible and easy check-in and out.”

    Mr Walder, December 2018

    • “The cottage was absolutely spotless and had everything we needed, plus more! On arrival we were greeted with beautiful flowers, wine, biscuits and tea/coffee! Our holiday started the moment we turned the key! The location was perfect for long walks in the day and evenings spent by the open fire at The Masons Arms. We would highly recommend this cottage!”

    Mrs Lockwood, Worcester, October 2018

    • “Perfect home from home.”

    Mr Beardmore, Stoke On Trent, September 2018

    • “The cottage location and atmosphere was worth the drive for two miles down a country lane, On arrival we were made VERY WELCOME after a long journey. Usually you have to unpack before you can sit back and relax with coffee, tea or even chocolate, it was all here. I will say no more as the biggest surprise is waiting for you when you book this beautiful cottage, add to that the view as you sit in the dining room is something to treasure. Ok no local shop, no mobile phone contact, but surely that last thing will ensure you don`t get pestered with problems you have left behind. There is WI FI if you really need it, but step out of this modern world and just relax in very comfortable beds with the main bedroom giving you views you just want to wake up to. The lovely beach is half a mile along the road with cafe, the Masons Arms a couple of strides frtom the cottage serve good food, but do book before you go, even in September. Our Favourite place has always been Sidmouth with the Connaught Gardens and Cafe, Big Portions here. Don`t forget the friends at the Donkey Sanctuary with its new look and Resturaunt. The beaches and villages of Beer & Seaton well worth a visit and ofcourse Lyme Regis. We visited the Beer Caves, a Cathedral in its own right, you can take pictures but I am glad I bought the video at a cost of £5 as it encompasses the whole experience. Ian & Zoe our hosts could not have given us more. We will be returning to 2 Smugglers cottage in the future Thankyou for a perfect holiday home.”

    Mr Johnson, Gloucester, September 2018

    • “Everything was great and the cottage was fantastic. The only slight downside was that there was no garden however there was a footpath nearby which led to nice area.”

    Mrs Cicuttin, Stroud, July 2018

    • “Overall, we were very pleased with the holiday cottage. The little extra touches such as the flowers and the soap made it different. The welcome pack was most welcome and the extras with the umbrellas and torches showed a lot of thought had gone into the organisation. The only drawback was that the outside steps were very steep. Both my husband and I are in our 60s and my husband has COPD and he found it impossible to carry the cases up the steps so I feel mention should be made of these and perhaps a suggestion that the front door in the first instance would be a better bet. Another older couple had mentioned that an extra grab rail outside the rear porch door would be helpful and we agree as my husband managed to take a tumble down these. It would not, however, stop us renting this cottage again as we would be forearmed. The cottage was beautiful and the views were outstanding. Every morning we would watch the rabbits and pheasants from the bedroom window.”

    Mrs Hunt, Maidstone, June 2018

    • “Smugglers close was stunning clean tidy beautifully presented peaceful with an amazing outlook. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and will definitely book with helpful holidays again”

    Ms Owen, Dover, June 2018

    • “Lovely touches on arrival, fresh flowers, bottles of wine, biscuits, towels beautifully laid out with soap on top, excellent kitchen equipment don't often get sharp cooking knives on holiday. Very comfortable beds with cotton bedlinen, comfortable, non-plastic settees, the soft furnishings are up to date and very tasteful, no mould around the bathroom fitments - fantastic pub close by, only 10 minutes from the sea front via a lovely off road pathway, I could go on...........”

    Mrs Phillips, May 2018

Regional Information

BRANSCOMBE Sidmouth 5.6 miles. Branscombe is located at the meeting point of two valleys, home to a collection of thatched cottages that lead the way to the sea, and the village is believed to be the longest in England. A number of historic buildings are worth noting; the Old Bakery and Forge, both National Trust properties, are just some of which can be found nearby. Branscombe Mouth has a beach with good parking facilities, a licensed restaurant complete with thatched roof and a wealth of rock pools just waiting to be searched for crabs and other sea creatures. Why not take a trip out to Sidmouth and the surrounding countryside where you’ll find a great range of attractions and activities to entertain the whole family, including a visit to the Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary with over 500 rescue donkeys to see.
