Seaton Apartment Rental Photos and Description

In centre of Branscombe, ideally placed for beach and surrounding countryside

A lovely, light and airy, ground floor apartment, superbly equipped with everything you need, in a block of 4, situated in the village square, close to the beach and coastal footpath. Sleeps 2- 4 people in comfort.

A perfect place in the centre of the beautiful village of Branscombe for a peaceful and relaxing holiday and an ideal base for exploring this wonderful area of East Devon and the Jurassic Coast.

The quiet, unspoilt beach is a 5 minute stroll away alongside a stream, with just one thatched roof cafe serving delightful home cooked food. Fishing trips are available from the beach and from the fishing village of Beer, 3 miles away.

This lovely Devon holiday accommodation consists of an entrance hall leading to a spacious, tastefully furnished sitting room with separate dining area, seating up to eight people. The kitchen is very well equipped for those of you who like to do your own cooking. The sleeping accommodation consists of a comfortable double bedroom and a second bedroom with bunk beds. There is a bathroom with an electric shower over the bath. We often stay at the apartment ourselves and have made sure that it is thoughtfully furnished with everything you need to make your holiday thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing. It is also very competitively priced in this much sought after holiday area.

Please note in high season bookings are on a weekly basis from Saturday to Saturday.

Branscombe is a small picturesque village situated on the Jurassic coast of East Devon. It has been featured in the Guardian as one of the best British beaches. East Devon is full of character with many country cottage towns and villages.The countryside is stunning, and there are many gorgeous walks inland and on the coast, including the South West Coastal footpath with it's amazing coastal panoramas from the clifftops.The village itself has a national trust farm, watermill, tea house and forge.

The apartment is all electric including heating and electricity is included in the price.

There is a parking space for one car in front of the apartment.

The real ale pub serving good food is a short walk across the village square.

Bed linen is included in the price.

Further afield but walkable along the SW footpath are the quaint fishing village of Beer to the East and the old English resort of Sidmouth to the West. And if you need to get in your car, Lyme Regis and the rest of Devon and Dorset with many holiday attractions are just a short ride away.

Some of the attractions for children within 10 miles include;

About Miss Jean Parker

We live in Yorkshire but have a large extended family in Devon and miss being able to be near them, so we have the apartment as a foothold in Devon. We let it out when we are not visiting and like to keep it nice and welcoming for our visitors..

Miss Jean Parker purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Miss Jean Parker chose East Devon

We stayed here for a holiday and liked it so much we inquired about whether it might be for sale and it was! We bought it the same day as the famous wrecking of the Napoli off the coast nearby in the winter of 2007. Not a good start at the time!

What makes this apartment unique

Such a beautiful area and very unspoilt. Reviews from our guests often talk about finding a 'hidden jewel' in Devon. We never tire of the fantastic and varied walks around the village and over the cliffs on the coastal footpath. The views are stunning and we always manage to find new walks we have never been on before.

Poor

  • 1 of 5

The apartment is very poorly decorated and rather dark. Bare wires in kitchen and bathroom needs a refurb. Lounge sofa springs reach the floor and clearly never moved by cleaner. Bed sags in middle quite a lot. Heaters largely not functioning so was quite cold at times.towel rail not working. 2 lights had blown. Walls must be paper thin as could hear conversations outside. Dingy place.village is nice.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that the guests had such a poor experience of our holiday accommodation. In 8 years of holiday letting this is the first time we have had such a poor review. Most guests use words such as 'a cosy getaway', 'a hidden gem', 'great little flat', 'ideal flat in a perfect location'. Many describe having had a wonderful stay and have been returning for a number of years. It is true that a problem with one heater and the towel rail developed, which we learnt of towards the end of our guest's stay. We immediately sent our caretaker round to check that the flat was warm enough using the rest of the heating and the guests confirmed they were fine with this over the telephone. Both problems and the lights have been dealt with as soon as an electrician was available. We aim to create a welcoming, well furnished and well equipped flat where customers can have a relaxing holiday at a reasonable and fair price. Every other review we have received has confirmed this. Once again I am very sorry the customers did not enjoy their stay..
