Branscombe Mouth

Branscombe Mouth beach, Devon

Branscombe Mouth lies on the South Devon coast between Sidmouth and Seaton. It is located within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and overlooks Lyme Bay.

Branscombe Mouth forms part of the East Devon and Dorset Jurassic Coast and boasts no fewer than three National Trust properties: The Old Bakery, Manor Mill and Forge

The beach lies wedged between steep cliffs at the end of a long valley. South facing, the mile long beach slopes quite steeply and consists of small pebbles/large shingle. It is quite common to see small boats beached high up on the beach, making for pleasing photographs.

Located below the pretty village of Branscombe in East Devon the beach is backed by a car park with toilets. There are half a dozen or so beach huts located at the back of the beach and the Sea Shanty Café offers refreshments. There are also plenty of places to have a picnic by the sea.

Branscombe Mouth is a popular starting point for walks along the South West Coast Path. There are a couple of options walking east to Beer as well as another walk westwards towards Sidmouth.
