About the property

Charming 1 bed Apartment in the heart of Beer and just a stroll from the beach

This delightful self-catering property is perfectly positioned on the 2nd floor of a 19th Century period stone building - opposite a convenient grocery store and just a short 3-4 minute stroll from the beach

The stairs are easily manageable and lead to an attractive lounge offering all the usual luxuries which give you real home-from-home comfort, together with lovely views over the surrounding area - Wi-fi is also available

The fully equipped kitchen includes hob/cooker, washing machine, dish-washer and microwave, together with dining facilities for up to four people.

Offering a luxurious retreat, Durham House Apartment provides the perfect environment for two people with a light and airy bedroom, new king size bed with furnishings to complement. The tiled bathrooms has a bath with shower over, hand basin, toilet and heated towel rail

All bed linen, towels and utilities are included in the tariff - you won't suddenly find extra costs payable at the end of your stay. Our friendly housekeeper also lives locally and is on hand if you have any questions or need help with anything

Parking is close by at the rear of the Dophin Hotel, where a daily or weekly permit can be purchased (more details can be provided)

About Sue Wesley

I've recently just married and my husband and I live in a pretty village in Warwickshire, near Stratford-upon-Avon. We both have demanding jobs so really enjoy escaping to our Apartment in beautiful Beer as often as we can - we just love its peace and tranquility. Perfect to recharge the batteries

Sue Wesley purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Sue Wesley chose East Devon

We discovered this great Apartment whilst on holiday one year and set about transforming it to a comfortable and relaxing home environment. Since buying the property we come back and visit as often as possible - mainly out of season in Spring and Autumn when we enjoy long walks to Branscombe and taking in the fresh sea air

What makes this apartment unique

Beer village is the perfect base to explore the local East Devon region, yet it offers all the amenities you could want on the doorstep. The locals are friendly and welcoming and the Apartment is light, fresh and airy. We think it has all the extra touches that will make your stay so relaxing and enjoyable

A wonderful bolt hole in Beer

  • 5 of 5

We managed to book a very last minute break for two nights at Durham House Apartment and it was just what we were after. The booking process was very easy and all the detailed info that Sue sent us beforehand very useful to help plan our stay. The property was well maintained with all that we needed (and I'm sure more, if you were there for longer). And the bonus was an extremely comfortable bed! I can highly recommend.

Beer itself is lovely, with lots of cafes and restaurants to choose from and don't miss a guided tour around the quarry caves - brilliant way to while away an hour.

An absolute joy. Lovely.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I could only grab a short, 3 night, 'mini-break', but to take away those mid-February blues - the Durham House apartment certainly hit the spot. Cosy, warm, centrally located with all the amenities you would expect was a joy. We were very sad to leave both the apartment and the wonderfully friendly and picturesque village of Beer. We hope to return soon. Thank you.

A Perfect Idyllic Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

We chose to go away in the quiet season, and wanted a cosy "home away from home" . . . and we found it !! Durham House Apartment is a beautiful place, with everything you need for a vacation. Just a very short distance to a beautiful cove and stunning scenery. The village of Beer is delightful, we will be returning for sure. The apartment couldn't be better placed for all that Beer has to offer.

Beer fishing village is the perfect base to explore the East Devon Jurassic Coast. You'll find an unspoilt and traditional seaside environment devoid of 'Kiss me Quick' hats, but full of friendly people, fabulous pubs and restaurants. It also boasts two stylish art galleries, tea shops and quaint seaside cottages and thatched houses

There is an excellent coastal bus service which you can pick up just opposite the Apartment . This takes the coastal route to the historic cathedral City of Exeter in one direction and delightful Lyme Regis in Dorset, in the other. The glorious Cobb Harbour is worth a visit and has had a starring role in such films as Persuasion and The French Lieutentnat's Woman

For local services, shopping and sightseeing, both Seaton town and Victorian Sidmouth are just a 10 min drive away

Beer also boasts the fantastic Quarry Caves and Pecorama, a model railway treasure trove, with beautiful gardens and model railways for children and adults alike

Bicton Garden is a delightful botanical garden about a 15 minute drive away, close to the pretty neighbouring village of Budleigh Salterton
