Branscombe

Important notice -

Portuguese Man O' War have been washing up all over our coasts, with the recent storms bringing many more to Branscombe beach. Please be cautious as they can give a nasty sting even when dead. Please don't touch them, and keep dogs away too.

Tucked away in a valley that runs down to a beach on the famous Jurassic Coast, there is a timeless magic about this old village
