    OUR GREEN CREDENTIALS

    The house was built to be as energy efficient as possible, the heating and hot water are fuelled by a ground source heat pump which utilises heat from the land, there are photo voltaic units on the roof which generates electricity, and there is also a rain water harvester which collects rain water in a tank below the lawn and is returned for use in the toilets. We operate a green policy on recycling and provide bins for food waste, cardboard, tins, glass and plastic. We also use a minimal amount of chemicals for cleaning as we have a bio digester.

    ABOUT THE AREA

    Branscombe is the longest village in the country and also one of the prettiest in East Devon with its Norman church, thatched cottages including one of the only thatched forges still working today, two pubs, the Fountain Head at the western end of the village and the Masons Arms which is closer to the beach, both serve good food and a variety of local ales. Branscombe beach is pebbles with sand stone cliffs to the east and west, although the cliffs do get more chalky towards Beer in the east.
