Walk - Branscombe
1.9 miles (3.0 km)
Branscombe Mouth - EX12 3DP Branscombe Mouth
Moderate - The first stretch of this walk along the Coast Path west of Branscombe Mouth is a fairly steep aacent, but once at the top of this hill it is then fairly level or downhill to the village of Branscombe and thenback down the valley to Branscombe Mouth. The footpaths may also be muddy and slippery in places after rain.
A very short walk from Branscombe Mouth to the picturesque thatched village of Branscombe, where the National Trust maintains several delightful properties dating back at least two centuries. Visit the working forge and mill (check opening times), then enjoy a traditional cream tea in the Old Bakery tea-room. If you are feeling energetic after exploring the village, extend the route along the delightful valley behind, to the historic Hole House and Edge Barton (see the Hole House and Edge Barton Walk).
