About the neighbourhood
Beer is on the JURASSIC COAST, designated an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and within easy reach of many West County attractions, including Dartmoor, Exmoor and the English Riviera. A holiday cottage in Beer will tick all the boxes – the little fishing village with the big heart. With an excellent selection of local shops (village store, Post Office/ off-licence, bakery, deli, several eateries, 3 local inns, art galleries, antique shops) and of course the beautiful beach - a real sun-trap with clean waters, rock pools at low tide and beach cafes serving great breakfasts and home-made treats. Watch local fishermen bring in their catch, hire a boat or take a walk and enjoy the stunning scenery.
