Overview

About the property

For a perfect getaway, run to the Escape Pod....

The Escape Pod is designed with an element of Glamping in mind. It is self contained with full bathroom shower suite.

It is ideal for a couple, or a family with two younger children.

Unfortunately It can not take 4 adults.

Full kitchen.

Smart TV.

Sofa bed for a couple sleeping. (Sofa bed can be made up upon request )

Two bunks beds for children but with prior agreement with owner. (£10 per bunk for extra bedding. )

It is compact living but everything can move.

Has its own balcony area at the front and a reverse little sun trap private area.

Dog friendly. (Fee of £10 )

Parking.

Ideal for couples exploring the Jurassic coast.

Or a small family wanting to escape for a break, it's very private.

Touched with a personal touch to try and make your stay as pleasant as possible.

Arrival basket and / or breakfast available when previously booked for a fee. (not available when the owner is away)

Can walk to the beach down any of the paths from the road leading to the Pod in 5 minutes or to the village centre, where you find a selection of pubs and restaurants to choose from. A few shops including deli and village shop. Also some beautiful art galleries, bring your gold card for one!

Beer is an historic fishing village, and continues to thrive on fishing to this day. Fresh fish shop on the beach. Can't get fresher!

Take a boat out and catch your own. In fact the owner of the rental fishing boats lives next door to the Pod. So very easy to arrange.

The Jurassic coast is a beautiful place and The Escape Pod is central for access to it all. Walk the coast line direct from the pod. All year round.

For kids there is so much to do, with Pecorama 2 mins walk from the Pod, you can be sure to cover all weather situations.

The Pod itself is situated in a residential area and at the bottom of the owners garden, and the owners car is often parked down the side of the Pod,( but out of view)

The owners house overlooks the Pod and is always happy to help or provide you anything you may need during your stay.

Information pack with the pod to ensure you can know what you have locally and I am happy to answer any questions or offer suggestions.

About Louise Turley

I am a mum of two living up the garden from the Pod and on hand for any problems or help.

I have two polite children, who may play in the garden during your stay and on hand to help you with any information or requests too.

Why Louise Turley chose Beer

I built the Pod to hope to rent it out and let others enjoy the beauty spot I have made my home. My children love it already and are praying for not too many bookings...

It is a different style of glamping, but unique, peaceful, gorgeous countryside views, you can sometimes hear the waves at night and the birdsong in the morning.

It is ideal for walkers walking the Jurassic coast and for small families who enjoy the outdoor living.

East Devon is full of places to visit and things to do for all ages and abilities.

What makes this cabin unique

It has been completed with a high specification and I have tried to offer everything I would love to have....

There is only one, so ideal for a secluded getaway.

Beautiful pod in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely two night stay in the escape pod. Beautiful location and beautiful pod. Small but perfectly formed. Lovely to look out on the sheep on the hills in the morning! Thank you Louise.

Louise the owner has thought of everything you could need to make our stay comfortable and cover all

  • 4 of 5

Glamping in a Pod by the sea.

Beautiful Beer is the place to be.

Walks along the rugged coast, leading to pubs and a good old roast.

Time to chill from the daily race.

Time for love and each other in this tiny space, remembering to put fun for us as the only priority.

O if only we could glamp every weekend.

Love, laughter, light and the land, two days of memories seem so grand.

An idyllic hideaway

  • 5 of 5

The Escape Pod really is a little gem. It's tucked down a little road so it's incredibly peaceful, with no other noisy guests to worry about, just the bleating of the sheep and the call of the seagulls, yet only a short stroll into the village with some lovely restaurants. With little light pollution it's a great place for stargazing. The pod is light and airy and has everything you need with a modern bathroom with fantastic shower. Louise is very friendly and helpful but also respectful of your privacy. I just wish we'd had longer. We'll definitely be coming back

Really neat and tidy and great base to explore Beer.

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant 2 night stay and Louise was really lovely and helpful and the information about Beer was great too. The pod has everything you need and is really well thought out. We'll definitely be back, for a longer stay next time.

The Pod is situated at the bottom of my garden, it is overlooked by my garden and house, so between me and my kids we are more than happy to help with anything you may need or wish to enquire about.

It is situated in a residential area with free parking (and my car is often parked down the side of the Pod out of view). The Pod offers views over some fields or often my neighbour tinkering on his fishing boats. (Please note it is not based on the beach or by the beach with a sea view.)

You are in the middle of the Jurassic Coast so much to see..

beaches, walks, local attractions for both adults and children.

Pecorama is 2mins walk from the house , perfect for children and hornby train lovers and lovely play area and stunning gardens. Many events here.

Beer beach is 5 mins walk away down any of the paths leading from the road outside, but being in East Devon you are so close to so many of the stunning beaches of Devon and Dorset.

Lyme Regis is on your doorstep, go fossil hunting...

or Sidmouth in the other direction, a stunning victorian beach town and beach.

Maybe you want to go The River Cottage from channel 4, only a 10 mins drive..... There is so much on your doorstep, its hard to know where to start....

From famous restaurants and chefs to the famous West Bay where many films are filmed....

to the stunning cathedral town of Exeter and beaches and see all along the way...

to cram in a trip to Creally Adventure park or Bicton Gardens....theres is simply something for everyone here.

Event the brand new Seaton Jurassic Centre, only 5 mins by car....

Happy to answer any queries.
