Beachcomber Cottage, Beer

  • 5 of 5

Beachcomber cottage was a great place to stay in Beer. It is well situated in the heart of Beer with a short walk to the main street with its pubs, shops and restaurants and is not far from the beachfront. It has loads of character, great views over the village and is also well equipped and was exceptionally clean upon arrival. It does not have parking (as do many places in Beer) but this is not a problem - it is easy to unload the car close by and the main car park in Beer is only a short walk away. The milk in the fridge on arrival and some tea bags was a nice touch. Beer itself is a fabulous fishing village with some good pubs, restaurants and cafes/tea rooms. Breakfast on the beach at Ducky's is a must!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your splendid review. Beachcomber Cottage is in a great spot with the beach, village and heritage coastal footpaths with spectacular views, all close by. There are many attractions to visit locally too. My aim is to make beachcomber a retreat to look forward to returning to at the end of your day, perhaps to sip a glass of wine or have a BBQ in the garden as the sun goes down. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay.

Beer captured our hearts and imaginations over 30 years ago and we have been regular visitors ever since. This picture postcard fishing village with a gurgling stream dancing along the main street to the beach, is snuggled in the rolling hills in East Devon's beautiful coastal scenery and drips nostalgia.

The horseshoe beach is the heart of the village, a natural suntrap surrounded by glistening white cliffs. It has clean waters, rock pools to explore at low tide, beach huts, and cafes
