    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    An exquisite character cottage which has recently undergone a comprehensive and sympathetic refurbishment to create a charming holiday retreat that is both well appointed and offers high levels of comfort. Full of traditional features including exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces, window seats and little cupboards tucked away here and there - not a straight wall in sight. Ideal for larger families sharing holidays and equally suitable as a romantic getaway for couples. The Fountain Head Inn is a real treat for food lovers and serves local ales from the Branscombe Vale Brewery.

    Set with a delightful garden and off road parking amidst a cluster of picturesque thatched cottages in the upper settlement of this scenic coastal village around a mile from the beach. Close to the renowned 14th Ce...

We booked this cottage at the last moment, after we had seen it when visiting Branscombe for the day. When looking at it online, I was rather concerned that the ceilings would be a bit low for my husband who is six foot tall. He did have to remember to duck under a couple of beams, but by and large it wasn't an issue. Having your own parking beside the cottage rather than in the lane that passes the pub is a real bonus. But the best thing about it is its proximity to the Fountain Head - a really great pub. If you're worried about noise - and that was another reason we had dithered about booking it - don't be. There is a thick hedge between the cottage and the pub, and the walls of the cottage are so substantial that you do not hear very much at all.
The cottage is very well-equipped, although, as there is no mobile reception, perhaps the owners should consider installing wifi for those desperate to stay in touch without the outside world - it didn't bother us.

We arrived at Gill cottage late afternoon on the first day of our holiday. After a 6 hours drive from the Northwest, we didn't really know what to expect - having only a floorplan and a few pictures of the interior from the agent's website.

Wow. The location could not have been more picturesque, the house more comfortable and inviting, the village more perfect. We unpacked our luggage, walked to the bottom of the garden, through a little gate and sat in the beer garden of the most idyllic English pub I've ever seen.
Now don't get me wrong - finding our holiday home sitting next door to a local pub was more than a little unnerving at first glance, but within the first couple of hours we realised that this little gem of a pub was treasured by both locals and travellers alike. Run by the friendliest of people it attracted like-minded, cheery patrons looking for a relaxing break.

I won't go on any more about the pub - just making it clear that its close proximity to...
