  • "Firstly the location was perfect for us, but unfortunately the property was extremely damp."

    Also not very clean. Only some of the radiators worked correctly as they appear to need bleeding. We had to leave earlier than expected as our son was extremely I'll which turned out he has pneumonia.

    Dear guest , We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. it was a very wet week and this may have contributed to the feeling of the cottage being damp. We have had a very busy season and no one has complained about dampness or level of cleanliness in the cottages. Indeed, the level of cleanliness has been praised. You are correct, that the radiator in the downstairs bedroom was not working properly. We were alerted to this whilst away, a new valve was fitted the very same day and is now working perfectly. We do hope your son is feeling better and am sorry that you had to leave early to visit him. Best wishes Lesley and Justin Property Owner

The Garlands At Beer

The Garlands at Beer consists of three well-presented self-catered holiday homes resting in the charming fishing village of Beer, Devon. This dog-friendly collection offers exceptional sea views, fully-equipped kitchens, inviting living and dining areas, TVs with Freeview and DVD players, private terraces with furniture and fantastic views, and off-road parking, making it a lovely base for couples, friends and families. The cottages are ideally located just moments away from the beautiful beach and the quaint main street, where you will find a selection of individual shops, galleries, takeaways, and welcoming eateries, including The Smugglers Kitchen and Anchor Inn. Beer’s family-friendly shingle beach, with its iconic limestone cliffs, is a perfect spot for swimming, watersports, or joining one of the many pleasure fishing boat trips which launch from the shore. Be sure to check out the fascinating Beer Quarry Caves, where you can join daily tours through this ancient quarry which dates back to Roman times. Next stop is Sidmouth, home to its own gorgeous beach, along with the beautiful National Trust Sidmouth Countryside, the Nortman Locker Observatory, and the Donkey Sanctuary which is open seven days a week a home to hundreds of sweet donkeys. For the foodies of your group, why not visit River Cottage, home of the TV chef Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall, and partake in one of the popular dining events or food courses. Being so close to the sea, fish features prominently on the many menus – try Hix’s Oyster and Fish House in Lyme Regis for a special occasion or a locally caught crab sandwich in one of the beach front cafes. At Lyme Regis you will find the further attractions of Lyme Regis Fossil Beach, Lyme Regis Marine Aquarium, the Harbour Inn, Marine Theatre, and the Lyme Regis Museum.

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.
