It’s also ideal for families, with attractions such as the Donkey Sanctuary, Crealy Adventure Park and the livelier seaside resort of Seaton nearby.
Things to do in Beer:
Beer’s easy access to the South West Coast Path means it’s a walker’s paradise - Seaton is less than half an hour away, while Branscombe and even Lyme Regis can be reached on foot. For those who’d rather relax, the shingle beach is a lovely spot with chalk cliffs all around and fishing boats heading in from the sea.
