NEW PROPERTY: A beautifully presented and impressive Edwardian House set in carefully landscaped gardens overlooking the picturesque fishing village of Beer, in East Devon.

York House is an imposing property approached through its own sweeping drive and has been thoughtfully designed to make the most of the far reaching views, with its terraced gardens and outdoor seating areas looking over the village and out to the sea. The accommodation is both elegant and well-proportioned with a large and bright family kitchen providing a real heart to the home with its AGA and large family dining table. The comfortably furnished sitting room is the perfect space for unwinding and with a separate TV room, the house is ideal for larger groups. The four spacious bedrooms in the main house are luxuriously furnished and designed with a relaxing and restful break in mind. An adjoining coach house annexe incorporates the 5th bedroom with a separate living room and well equipped kitchen making this a perfect choice for extended families or friends wishing to holiday together.

The picture-postcard village of Beer is located on the Jurassic coast, England’s first natural World Heritage Site. One of the most spectacular coastlines in England the coast extends for 95 miles and takes in dramatic cliffs, spectacular arches and sea stacks. The natural bay and shingle beach at Beer still boasts a small fleet of working fishing boats and the striking white chalk cliffs provide a natural suntrap sheltering the cove from prevailing westerly winds.
With a large variety of places to eat, drink and relax, Beer also enjoys a wide range of family friendly leisure attractions including the famous Pecorama and Quarry Caves and self-drive motor boats can be hired from the beach. With the seaside resorts of Lyme Regis and Sidmouth within 20 minutes by car this property is a great base for discovering this recognised Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

About Devon (Beer)

This charming fishing village in south-east Devon grew up around a smugglers' cove and its fascinating history makes it popular with visitors - particularly exciting is the story of smuggler Jack Rattenbury, nicknamed "Rob Roy of the West".

Visit the famous Beer Quarry Caves, where 19th century smugglers like Jack would store contraband, and which are the main source in England for Beer stone, used in the construction of many cathedrals and churches and even in Buckingham Palace. A large part of Beer's history revolved around the making of lace, and former customers have included Queen Victoria (the flounce for her wedding dress was made here) and the Prince and Princess of Wales.

Today the main feature of Beer life is fishing, and since there is no harbour it is a daily occurrence to see boats winched up the beach using steel cables. Be sure to sample some of their haul in one of the delightful restaurants that dot the area, or hire a motor-boat and try some mackerel-fishing for yourself!

For those who like to walk, a visit to the Jubilee Gardens with a pretty view over village and cove is bound to please, and from there you can follow the brook through the town and down to the sea. The saying goes that you are not a true Beer local until you have fallen into the brook... perhaps more likely after a spot of ale at one of the local pubs!

If visiting Beer in August you might catch the bustling Regatta Week, packed with events for all the family, from sailing to skittles and from fancy dress to fireworks. With its ever-warm welcome and abundance of local colour, there is plenty in Beer to capture your curiosity.
