A magical night away on the devon cosst

The Masons arms is a charming throwback to another era.

Tucked on the Devon coastline it hinted at an olde worle experience which it delivered. As we walked into the bar area, the huge old fireplaces belched out warmth that shook the autumnal chill out of our bones. Sitting by the fire, supping cask conditioned ales, we were transported back to a time when life was slower, simpler and far more leisurely. Our cottage type accomodation, annexed to the Masons arms did not dissapoint either. A beautifully presented room with a piping hot shower eased the stress from our bones. Supper at the Masons was also superb. Locally caught fish being our choice. We sat by the fire. . . Again. . . .after supper before a peaceful nights sleep. Breakfast the next morning was a traditional English affair. . . Served with a smile and efficient service. We left on the windy road out of Branscombe plotting our treturn over the Christmas period. A wonderful 24 hours spent in yesteryear.

Bijou location

Access to Branscombe challenging if not used to Devon country lanes.

Check in at bar as main reception closed. Small room in pub building but adequate for one night. Could have done with an extra bedside table but problem would be where to put it in such a tight space.Bed comfortable and en suite excellent with lashings of hot water and a plentiful supply of toiletries. Restaurant meal was fantastic, lobster and salmon cooked to perfection. Breakfast same. Definitely stay again.

We knew when we booked that our room was going to be small so no problem there.

Bathroom was immaculate and quality of shampoo etc was excellent. The only niggle we had was that there was only one bedside light and no valance cover on the divan bed leaving it exposed. We were only there for 2 nights so lived with it. When paying the bill at reception ŵe mentioned this and we're told that the room was due to be refurbished in October and should have been told this when shown to our room and they were very apologetic that this was not the case so were satisfied with their responce.

Mason arms stay

The food is excellent and good choice on menu The staff very helpful pleasant and service delivered with a smile which made out stay so much more enjoyable we were a little disappointed with the room very cramped could not pass each other round the bottom of the bed and only one bedside table /lamp but was clean we would stay again without doubt but would like a less cramped room

Anniversary Break

Lovely building in a great, quiet, location with lots of walking opportunities from the door.

Room was superb, but servicing not so good - rubbish in bin on arrival and bits of mud on the carpet which we caused were not cleaned up. General areas were a little 'tired' and there was usually some dirt on the stair carpets. Staff were friendly but a little dis-organised. Food was great, both breakfasts and evening meals. It was a wonderful 3 day stay for our wedding anniversary. We will certainly return in the future.

Nice pub in a lovely location

Lovely pub in a great location only a few minutes walk or drive from the beach.

Plenty of seaside towns to visit within a short drive & the nearby Donkey Sanctuary is a must for childeren & animal lovers. We had a lovely spacious room (25) with a HUGE bed & sizable en-suite. Evening Food was good but not quite as good as the price suggested. Breakfast was just the job apart from the cardinal sin of cold toast one morning but that's just being picky & I'm sure they would have changed it if I'd asked. Overall very pleased & would recommend to others.
