In the heart of Beer village with fantastic views down through the town, this period Grade II listed cottage is the ideal house for family holidays, and is only a 3-minute walk to the beach. The property boasts many original features such as exposed stone around the feature fireplace and lovely window seats which all add to the character of this cottage. The property has been completely redecorated and furnished to a very good standard, and very much geared to family holidays, there are plenty of games, books and toys to keep children amused, but also the ideal base for walkers. Being on the Jurassic Coastal Path, guests can walk to Branscombe, Sidmouth, Seaton and Lyme Regis. The village of Beer is such a lovely location with many independent shops, wine bars, restaurants and pubs. Seaton, with its tramway is well worth visiting and is only 5 miles away. Beer is a typical example of a beautiful, unspoilt Devon fishing village. Once a smugglers’ haven, set in one of the most sheltered positions on the Devon Coast, Beer retains a strong seafaring tradition with skills and business handed down from family to family to the present day. Beer’s sheer cliff coastline shaped this tradition and has become something of a distinguishing feature of this small town. It is a natural sun trap and the views across the bay from Jubilee Gardens are simply stunning. The beach is very sheltered along with the sheltered bay, which benefit from picturesque paraphernalia of the fishing industry - the brightly coloured wooden boats, the nylon nets, winches, brightly coloured floats and old rope that lie around them. Beer has a small stream which follows the line of the pavement running through Beer’s gently sloping streets across the beach to the sea. The steep cliffs that created this sheltered alcove, made ideal hideouts for smugglers, and created a second industry for the men of the area. Shop 20 yards.
