The seaside village of Beer located on the east coast of Devon is a pretty seaside fishing village with a splendid choice of seaside seaside holiday cottages for families and groups of friends of all sizes. Set in the valley overlooking the sheltered bay, this quaint coastal village is not traditionally named after the drink but the Anglo Saxon word 'Bearu'. A unique feature of the village is the stream that runs alongside the main street down the hill and onto the splendid shingle beach.
Beer is well-known for its fishing, with freshly caught fish and beer crab widely available. Why not enjoy your own catch of the day by hoping aboard one of the many fishing boats operating trips around the coast?
Gull’s Rest is an idyllic coastal holiday cottage set on the hillsides surrounding the quaint fishing village of Beer, Devon, boasting gorgeous views of the harbour and Lyme Bay from the living area’s floor-to-ceiling windows and featuring four bedrooms spread over two stories.

If you would prefer to keep your feet on dry land there are many different coastal walks to enjoy from your holiday cottage around the bay that capture the beauty of the Jurassic Coastline. Families with young children will find plenty of fun to while away an afternoon at Pecorama, a fun park with trains of all sizes.
Whilst exploring the village discover the local quarry that has been in use for more than 2,000 years and has provided stone for some of the country's most beautiful buildings, including Exeter Cathedral and Westminster Abbey. Take a walking tour through the underground chambers created when removing the stone. More serious walkers will appreciate the cliff top walks along the South West Coast Path to Seaton in one direction and Branscombe and Sidmouth in the other.
To end your day in Beer, relax in one of the many welcoming pubs and restaurants such as the Anchor Inn, which is rated highly by many people who have visited and savoured its dishes.
