BEAUTIFUL LITTLE COTTAGE
This a beautiful cottage in a superb location just yards from the sea. Very well appointed inside - ideal for a couple (or as in my case, one person). All kinds of facilities and equipment - clean and inviting - and lovely decor. Owners Jodie and Debbie very helpful and kindly provided welcome basket of goodies too. The parking permit was an added bonus - although the car park is round the corner. However the little 2-hour car park outside the property is perfect for loading and unloading. Beer is very central for all kinds of towns and places: Seaton, Sidmouth, Lyme Regis, Axminster, Charmouth, Branscombe - and tourist attractions like Seaton Tramway, Pecorama, Town Mill at Lyme Regis, Beer Quarry Caves....to name a few. One does not have to travel far. Loads of places to eat everywhere. It was a lovely holiday - and I would love to visit Beer again - and stay at the lovely Crabpot Cottage.
We will be back
Crabpot cottage is lovely. Very comfortable and clean and really well situated for beach, shops and variety of eating places. Another plus is a parking permit for car park very near to the cottage.
A beautiful cottage
What an amazing beautiful cottage, in the heart of Beer.
Overlooking the beach (well almost except for the tree).
Easy access, loading and unloading in front of the property.
Free parking with the use of pass to local/nearby car park (a definate bonus). Plus a basket of local goodies - a gift from the owner (a nice thoughtful touch). Easy handover of the key. Everything you could need for two people (there is even a washing machine - if you feel inclined - but a bonus if you a small baby with you).
Crabpot Cottage was compact and cosy, central to all amenities and from the front door a view of the sea. Very clean, kitchen had everything to hand. Roomy bathroom, shower really good and easy to operate. Excellent bedroom with plenty of storage and lovely view on the village; just see the sea through the tree.

“Little gem of beer”
We are so lucky to have found this place, we both had a fantastic stay in beer. Debbie and Jodie were very welcoming and we really enjoyed our welcome pack of local goodies. We were lucky as the weather was great for our stay. Thank you Debbie for recommending some lovely eating places to us, we particularly enjoyed the bistro at beer head caravan park. We accidentally found Streamers the fish restaurant and ate there twice, it well worth a trip. The coastal walk from beer to seaton was great fun and the views from above are breathtaking. We would happily come and stay again and enjoy all beer has to offer. Crabpot cottage is a charming and delightful cottage and has all you could ask for!
The delightful East Devon fishing village of Beer is located on the World famous Jurassic coast. Beer is steeped in history, with the sea and fishing being central to village life. Infamous for smuggling and lace making in days gone by, today local families and visitors alike love Beer for its picturesque village charm and sheltered beach. For a small village Beer has a lot to offer!
A delightful narrow brook runs through the village trickling down to the sea, passing stone cottages, art galleries (exhibiting a vast collection from both local and national artists), independent shops, restaurants, pubs, wine bars and cafes.
Beer's sheltered pebble beach is a natural suntrap, where you can enjoy lunch or a cream tea at one of the many beach cafes or simply take your fish and chips to one of the many deckchairs and watch the sunset. There are self-drive motor boats and fishing trips during the summer season where budding fishermen can try to catch a mackerel or even a sea bass. Others may enjoy exploring the rock pools beneath the chalk cliffs. If you are visiting Beer in August then keep an eye out for Regatta week which includes a packed programme of events to suit all ages including raft races, traditional lugger racing, scavenger hunts, barrel rolling and a firework display.
Whilst in Beer, why not explore the South West Coastal Path and walk over the cliff from Beer to nearby Branscombe where you can visit the National Trust working forge or sample the locally brewed Branscombe Ale at one of the local pubs. Alternatively continue walking and you will reach the Regency seaside town of Sidmouth, famous for its folk festival in August and beautiful gardens and observatory. Heading east, you can wander over the cliff to Seaton, the site of the new £4 million Seaton Jurassic visitor centre, which opened in 2015. A visit to the viewing hides at Seaton Marshes Nature Reserve is a must to observe numerous birds including; herons, oyster catchers and little egrets, and you may even glimpse the local otters or water voles. The Seaton Tramway also travels through the wetlands to the medieval town of Colyton for those feeling less energetic. 7 miles further east is the Dorset town of Lyme Regis with its sandy beach, where you can enjoy a spot of fossil hunting or wander around the vintage shops and numerous speciality food outlets.
Attractions around Beer include: the beautifully designed Pecorama gardens and Beer Heights Light Railway where you can ride the narrow gauge passenger train whilst taking in the views down the valley towards the sea. Beer Quarry Caves can also be found on the outskirts of the village and offer guided tours around these famous caves which supplied stone for the Tower of London and Windsor Castle. Other attractions within easy reach include The Donkey Sanctuary, (free admission), Bicton Gardens and Abbotsbury Swannery, Killerton House (headquarters of the National Trust). There are also 2 cinemas and indoor swimming pools in the nearby towns.
For those wishing to dine out, there are plenty of places to eat in the village. The two main pubs (Anchor Inn and The Dolphin) have both been completely refurbished recently. The Anchor boasts a delightful beer garden next to the slipway with fantastic views across the bay. Steamers Bistro can be found down one of the side streets and is open all year round serving local fish and Mediterranean inspired dishes. Osborne’s coffee and wine bar is open 7 days a week until 11pm, serving light bites and tapas. There is also an Italian and an Indian restaurant in the village. For a special treat, why not try Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall’s River Cottage Canteen (8 miles away) or Mark Hix’s Oyster and Fish House in Lyme Regis.
