A tiny village, with cottages that look like chips of white chalk pegged into the lush green countryside. It is centred on the The Mason’s Arms and is convenient for the South West Coastal Path in South Devon.
There is a commemoration site for the Italian MSC Napoli which came aground just off Branscombe Beach over ten years ago and a cafe with outside seating.
This is a very quiet area with some unusual wooden chalets set into the under cliff either side of the Branscombe Mouth. They have expansive views of the English Channel and are overlooked by the cathedral like pinnacle on the Beer side of the beach.
