Beer & Branscombe

Pet Friendly Holiday

About this property

Visitors return year after year to Heron Chalet for a rare opportunity to stay right on Branscombe beach, one of East Devon's most beautiful and best kept secrets.Once you come you will be hooked.   Situated on the East Beach, Heron is the middle chalet in a run of five chalets with its own balcony and uninterrupted views across Lyme Bay.  We think it is the best coastal views in East Devon.Heron offers a perfect escape but please note there is no car access.  The peace and quiet is well worth the extra effort but it is something to bear in mind as guests carry their own luggage across the shingle beach or field.A tractor ride is normally available for an additional charge through the Sea Shanty Caravan Park.

Within a short walk of the chalet is the Sea Shanty Beach Cafe, NT Tea Rooms and the Masons Arms pub.A longer walk takes you to the Fountain Head Pub at the end of the village and a short drive away are the busier resorts of Sidmouth, Beer and Lyme Regis.



Private wood decked platform with outdoor dining table and chairs.


Kitchen, fully equipped with Calor gas cooker, Microwave and Fridge.


Living room + sea view balcony with comfortable seating units, books, games + a small TV and music system.


Bedroom 1 - Double bed   Bedroom 2 - Twin beds.


Newly fitted bathroom with integral bath/shower hand basin and WC.

Check Availability & Book Booking Form

*Short Break prices shown are for 3 nights only, please call for 4 or 5 night prices if required. Short Breaks are available from the end of October half term to the start of the Easter school holidays, or at the owners' discretion for a last minute booking at other times of the year. Unfortunately it would be most unusual for us to be in a position to consider a short break at peak holiday times, such as the October and February half terms or over the Christmas, New Year and Easter breaks.
