National Trust in Branscombe

The National Trust is a conservation charity set up 120 years ago to protect the places that people love.

Devon has at least 32 amazing National Trust places of interest and Branscombe is a wonderful area for walking and exploring. The barns at Pitt Farm have information on different National Trust footpaths that take you around the village and out along the cliff tops.

The Old Bakery is on the lane leading you down to the village hall and then on to the beach. It is a lovely place to stop for refreshments when walking home in the afternoon (amazing cream teas!). From there you can smell the fire burning in the Forge, where Ian will show you how he carries out his daily work and welcomes you to look around his little shop and showroom. It is thought to have been built in 1580 and is believed to be the oldest thatched working forge in the county.

The Old watermill has been standing  near to the bakery since the 19th century. It is open seasonally and very welcoming to families. Children can get involved by turning the cogs on a miniature quern and find out about the history all who worked there once upon a time.
