We had a 2 night break here and sooo enjoyed ourselves. The food was delicious, the staff friendly & helpful and the setting picturesque. It is just a short walk, half a mile, from the beach. We will return!

We stayed at the Masons Arms on our wedding night. It was very expensive but thought it would be worth the best room in the hotel. We asked about having breakfast in our room, because it was our wedding night and they said no. When we arrived we found the room to be huge, well decorated but not anything particularly...

The Mason's Arms in Branscombe Village, Devon is a true gem of a place! Beautiful countryside, quiet village and fantastic hotel/pub. Staff and locals made us feel welcome, food and accommodation were great.

Great location with a picturesque pub and rooms in what was probably a series of cottages. Nice spacious room with 4 poster bed which was comfortable other than the dip to the middle which was just part of the experience. Breakfast was ok, nothing special but dinner was awful. Overlooked simple fish dish that was inedible. The steak pie was...

The pub itself is picturesque, situated in a lovely village less than a 10 minute country walk to the beach! ... Great service, friendly & accommodating staff who couldn't do enough for you & food was lovely too!

Two of us plus two dogs stayed for 3 nights. We had a large ground floor bedroom which opened on to a lovely terrace/flower garden. The bathroom was magnificent with both a shower and a bath. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming and they really love well behaved dogs. The hotel is hidden away in a wooded valley...

We spent a night here on our way to Cornwall and stayed in one of the cottages and had a lovely spacious room with huge bathroom. Our dog was allowed in the room. We arrived on the day of the Branscombe beer festival and although this was not a concern for us we felt other people may have liked to...

This is such a lovely rural spot, the pub food and servis was very good and friendly, lots of dogs as dog friendly. Very clean. There is a lovely short walk to the beach and the nearby town Beer is fantastic. Very hilly so not for the infirm or if you are worried about driving down narrow country lanes. We...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestling in the heart of Branscombe, one of Britain's most picturesque villages, is the award winning, 14th Century, The Masons Arms. This charming thatched Inn dates back to 1350 - a cider house turned country pub - and the men who cut the stone for Exeter Cathedral drank here, hence the name. With only a leisurely ten minute stroll to Branscombe Beach, The Masons Arms offers an ideal base to escape the stresses of modern life and enjoy the magical vista of sea, beaches and the spectacular walks offered by the ninety five miles of Devon and Dorset's Jurassic Coast. The authentic interiors ooze character with timber frames, low beamed ceilings, pine cladding, whitewashed walls and a huge roaring log fire. Our award winning Restaurant offers an exciting and creative menu in relaxed fine dining surroundings. The Masons Arms kitchen brigade are dedicated to sourcing the very best of local Dartmoor produce. The cooking is classy yet simple, perfect for a special meal or relaxing Country lunch. We serve as many as six locally brewed bitters and the finest wines from around the world. The 21 bedrooms at the Masons Arms Branscombe, are cosy, stylish and inviting, blending comfort with character. The Masons Arms has been awarded a FOUR STAR rating under the Inn category by Quality in Tourism. ... more   less
