The Mason’s Arms – Branscombe, Devon.

8C53D727-54E7-4198-92D6-CD77D5430932You can almost hear the palpable buzz of rowdy mason’s at the end of the day kicking back in this 17th century pub. After a long day’s work in Beer quarry rather than drinking with the labourers the masons would make their way over to Branscombe. There is still very much a palpable buzz today but now it’s made by locals, tourists and keen walkers. The thatched roof, thick white stone walls and low beams makes for a welcoming place to stay or place to eat and meet friends.

BE84C44C-AC5A-4BFC-A147-D1AE77DBCDDAThe Grey Traveller stayed in a standard room in the main building. Beautifully decorated in crisp whites and muted fawns this comfortable bedroom was made for a good night’s sleep. An ensuite bathroom  with  the signature crisp white towels and Orla Kiely toiletries, a tv and generous refreshment tray was the icing on the cake for me after a day of walking or exploring.

Conveniently located close to the southwest coastal path The Mason’s Arms nestles in a dip of white washed cottages on the South Devon border.

Breakfast is freshly cooked offering a menu of hot dishes such as full English or scrambled eggs and smoked salmon on muffin along side a range of cereal, fruit and pastries.

Dinner was a celebration of local produce and our party was not disappointed with the Exe River mussels, haddock, steak pies and cheeseboard.

Hope to get back there one day soon. Cheers!
