Access Statement

Pitt Farm is located in the Street area of Branscombe. We have two entrances, one of which has vehicular access to the Lodge and Farm House and the other has vehicular access to the three converted barns; The Milking Parlour, The Old Cow Stall and Bob’s Barn. (Both entrances have pedestrian access to all properties).

When arriving at the barns entrance you will see an old cattle shed next to a covered yard. Driving in through the large wooden gates you will travel down a short slope around the cattle shed towards the three barns. Parking spaces for all vehicles (of guests staying in The Milking Parlour, Cow Stall and Bob’s Barn) are provided under the covered yard which is situated directly next to the Milking Parlour (parking closer to Bob’s Barn can be arranged to meet any specific access needs) However, you are welcome to drive up to the front door of each barn to unload any luggage and party members.

Parking for The Lodge is through the other entrance and next to the biomass shed. Again, alternative parking can be arranged to meet any specific access needs.

All outside areas are lit. This includes the driveways, parking bays, and pedestrian steps (optional use).

All our properties contain approved fire and smoke alarms and emergency lighting as well as fire extinguishers and fire blankets in the kitchen areas.

The Milking Parlour is the barn closest to the main entrance and parking area. You can access the barn by either the front or side door.

When entering through the front stable door you arrive immediately into the open planned living area with all light switches at waist height on your left. If you look left you will see the dining and kitchen area. The downstairs flooring is on an even level with a smooth wooden floor running throughout.

Walking through the dining area and past the kitchen look to your left and you will find the back door which has its own separate key. There is a 100mm step down from the back door leading out into the enclosed yard where you will find an area of grass and a flat surface slate patio with a wooden table and seating.

Back in the house and opposite the back door is a toilet with wash hand basin. You will also see the main stairway with 13 stairs leading to the bathroom and bedrooms.
Once upstairs you are on a small ‘L’ shaped landing with a window for natural light and a safety light which comes on in the event of a power cut. All rooms upstairs are carpeted and on the same level. Immediately in front of you is the bathroom with a wc, sink, bath with shower and glass screen and a heated towel rail. To your right you will find the twin bedroom and king bedroom both with touch bedside lamps

The closest Bus Stop. Is less than a hundred yards up the lane, outside the ‘Margels’ property. There is also a bus stop outside the village hall further in to the village. These stops are very handy for trips to and from neighbouring villages.
