Escape to the glorious coastal countryside of East Devon for a romantic stay in this chocolate-box thatched cottage just outside the seaside village of Branscombe, where your canine companion is welcome to join you. Enjoy wonderful original features, a warming wood burner and your own patio garden at this charming home away from home.

Enter through a traditional stable door, and you''ll find ample storage and hanging space, as well as a convenient utility room with cloakroom facilities. A stunning inglenook fireplace takes centre stage in the L-shaped lounge/diner/kitchen, beckoning you to cosy up with a loved one on the sofa while Rover snoozes in from of the wood burner. The contemporary Shaker-style kitchen features everything you need to cook up a delicious dinner for two. On the first floor, you''ll discover a luxurious shower room with exposed wooden beams and a spacious walk-in shower. The tranquil bedroom boasts sloping ceilings, painted beams, gorgeous garden views and a king-size bed for a comfortable night’s sleep.

Branscombe Beach (1.5 miles) beckons dog owners from near and far. This pristine coastline allows pups to roam freely on most of the beach throughout the year. For a more adventurous escapade, venture along the South West Coast Path. This scenic trail offers sweeping views of the coastline and countryside, providing plenty of opportunities for Rover to explore along the way. Alternatively, take a stroll through the enchanting village of Branscombe (1 mile). With its charming thatched cottages and postcard-perfect scenery, it''s the ideal setting for a relaxing walk with Fido. Numerous local pubs and cafes also welcome dogs with open paws, so you can savour a delicious bite to eat with your loyal companion by your side.

A very well appointed cottage with a comfortable bed, cosy and compact. Of note this is a very beautiful but isolated location. If this is what youre looking for, it is ideal, but prepare for many, many miles of single track lanes. It has birdlife, footpaths and history on your doorstep. Recommended for nature lovers.

This cottage is perfect for two people and if youre like us, a dog. Its in the most beautiful setting surrounded by hills, thatched cottages and well worn paths.

The only thing to be aware of if your dog loves chasing a ball on a sandy beach is that all of the beaches in the area are pebble. Hide
