  • "We had a lovely time at Ivy Cottage."

    It was well-equipped, cosy and the position was perfect. We agree with other renters that the space outside the cottage can only be described as suitable for one car. We were worried about the shower screen which is not very secure and so water leaks onto the floor (the flooring is lifting by the bath). Overall we thought the bathroom was a bit tired. Also, the mattress in the loft room is extremely uncomfortable (thin and lumpy). None of this detracted from our stay and we'd definitely come back.

  • "Ivy cottage is a lovely airy cottage, it’s very comfortable, , ,the kitchen and utensils were well equipped , it was easy to keep clean downstairs with our 4 legged friend, our only 2 things I would say we would have loved to have slept in the attic room but it was very hot and we were unable to open the window, the other little thing was the washing machine door is very hard to close, but it did not ruin our stay,in fact we loved ivy cottage so much we have booked already for next year."

    Another plus is it’s a short walk to the village.

  • "This is a beautiful little cottage which has everything you need."

    The only 2 things that let the place down slightly is 1. The back patio and furniture could do with a good sweep and hose down as it is quite dirty and looks like it has not been touched for sometime. And 2 is the top bedroom in the attic it’s got no ventilation and it gets very very hot it could do with the skylight being modified so it can open slightly just so the heat can escape. But apart from that the place itself is perfect and highly recommended and will be staying there again in October.

    We're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and are planning to return later in the year. We have passed on your comments regarding the attic bedroom to the owner for consideration, and will attend to the garden furniture and patio. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "The only problem we had was that the bushes on the neighbouring drive were overhanging so made getting out of the car a bit difficult."

    We did have 2 cars and we knew it would be a tight space but that didn't help. Also front door was very stiff to open and inner door didnt shut properly but probably expected with an old house.

  • "Lovely cottage in ideal location."

    Enjoyed our stay again. Only thing missing was oven gloves - maybe this is because of covid restrictions?

  • "Lovely week, no real problems, but several minor things need addressing in the property: 1."

    Trim on end of worktop near back door sticks out and can catch on clothing, needs replacing. 2. Cutlery drawer tends to come off its runners because the left-hand side panel has come away from its fixings. 3. My wife and I had the twin beds. Both of them creak alarmingly at the slightest movement; this is not conducive to a good night's sleep. 4. We needed to wash the patio table and chairs before use as they had not been cleaned for a while.

Occupying a superb village location in the heart of Beer in Devon, is this charming mid-terraced cottage, Ivy Cottage.

The perfect holiday home for a family or group travelling together, the cottage offers well-presented accommodation with a chilled-out ambience so guests get the relaxing holiday they want.

The open-plan living space is warm and welcoming with a delightful sitting area complete with seating, large windows which let light flood in and a feature fireplace which all add up to create a really inviting vibe.

The rustic kitchen has all the facilities needed to be able to produce whatever culinary offerings your holiday party requires with an elegant dining area providing a sociable space in which to gather and eat together.

You can throw open the patio door and let the fresh Devon air in, sit outside in the attractive courtyard and enjoy some eating and drinking time alfresco.

All that fresh holiday air is tiring so when bedtime calls take your pick from a king-size (with a TV so you don’t have miss your favourite telly programme even when you’re in bed!), a twin or a double; all are stylishly presented and offer a calming sanctuary after a hard day of holidaying.

Following a refreshing night’s sleep, you can hop in the shower or have a soak in the bath, before taking coffee in the courtyard and planning the day’s activities.

There is so much to explore in Devon it can be hard to know where to begin but the captivating village of Beer is a good place to start with some great shops and pubs right on the doorstep, a fabulous beach and Beer Quarry Caves and Beer Heights Light Railway a must-visit while you’re here.

Jump in the car for some other attractions a little further away but with some enchanting views along the way such as Pecorama Gardens, Seaton Tramway, Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary and Crealy Adventure Park.

Beaches worth packing a picnic for include Charmouth, West Bay, Torquay, Seatown and Weymouth.

About the location


Seaton 1.5 miles; Lyme Regis 9 miles; Sidmouth 9.5 miles; Exeter 25 miles.

Beer is a small picturesque fishing village on the south Devon coast near Seaton. The shingle beach is very sheltered, backed by limestone cliffs and was once fertile smuggling territory, plus contraband was hidden in nearby caves, which are now a popular tourist attraction. Beer is situated on the stretch of Devon coastline, known as the Jurassic Coast, a designated World Heritage Site, and the village offers sloping streets lined with picturesque stone houses and cottages built on many different levels of the steep valley sides. There are a good range of shops, friendly cafes, restaurants and pubs in Beer, plus just outside the village is the popular Pecorama Gardens, which are perched on the hill overlooking Lyme Bay. Pecorama boasts the Beer Heights Light Railway and indoor model railway exhibition, along with a children's play area. Beer is a unique Devon fishing village and a great place to stay.
