If you were looking for cottages like Barnell Cottage, how about trying these:

Set in its own mature gardens on a south-facing hillside, Barnell Cottage has views over Branscombe Vale and out to the World Heritage Jurassic Coast at Branscombe mouth. This beautiful detached cottage has been thoughtfully renovated to create a contemporary spacious home, with an open plan kitchen/diner, separate snug and sitting-room.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms, one en suite, and one bedroom with a single bed and pull-out truckle bed with fully-sprung three-foot mattresses which is good for adults as well as children; if you want to use this room as a single, one of them tucks easily out of the way beneath the other. A family bathroom and cosy under-floor heating add modern comfort to the many charming original features.

This tranquil location is in the east Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has fabulous walks straight from your doorstep. Try the National Trust's walking trail that takes you around this historic village, or a 15 minute walk to the beach.

The village has the added bonus of two excellent pubs, one either end of the village, including the award-winning Masons Arms. The nearby shingle beach has a private car park, an exercise-area that welcomes dogs and the Sea Shanty Beach Cafe serving delicious seafood.
