Dating back to the 18th century Smugglers Cottage is situated in the heart of the Devon village of Beer. Full of period character and charm the property boasts an inglenook fireplace which can be backlit creating a beautiful feature for any cosy nights in. Fully refurbished to a high standard, including the addition of a new kitchen and bathroom, the cottage provides very comfortable holiday accommodation for couples or families.
Outside the private, terraced garden is set over three levels and from the top offers a lovely view over the rooftops of the village to the sea. The cottage is ideally located just a short walk from the village centre and its variety of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants and is a five minute walk to the beach. The natural bay and shingle beach at Beer still hosts a small fleet of working fishing boats and the imposing white chalk cliffs provide a suntrap within a sheltered cove.
A welcome pack for your arrival ensures a great start to your holiday and will include milk, tea and a selection of locally sourced produce and treats.
The seaside resorts of Lyme Regis and Sidmouth are within 20 minutes by car making the cottage a great base for exploring this recognised Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
