    “Gulls Rest is well located at the top of the hill in the pretty village of Beer.”


    The front of the property is unassuming with steep steps/slope down to the front door from the road. Entering the house feels like stepping back in time a cosy hallway greets you; off of which are three bedrooms and a cloakroom, good sized kitchen/diner with separate utility and the magnificent lounge. Stairs from the lounge lead to the huge first floor bedroom boasting a very tired looking Super King Bed and an equally large bathroom as photographed with a hand held shower only. A previous reviewer pointed out this bedroom is in the roof and so is very warm in the summer. In November it was cold and in no way inviting despite the magnificent space and stunning views. As only the two of us were using the house we decided to sleep downstairs. One bedroom provided a very soft King and the other a soft Double we had one each. The single bed did not look comfortable! The Bathroom is not Jack and Jill, it is a shared bathroom with a shower over the bath. The double room has the tiniest of en suite showers with no window or radiator so relies on a fan and heat from the bedroom to keep the room dry. The rooms are very useable but are in no way modern. The property is spotlessly clean. The linens are clean but not hotel white, you are staying in someone's home, vases of fresh flowers were a lovely touch. It is the back of the property that really has the wow factor with stunning views across the village and Lyme Bay. There is a beautiful east facing garden which has been terraced to allow different seating areas, in the summer I doubt you would want for more, with its visiting birds of all kinds and spectacular views. Enjoy the stars, listen out for the owl and the church bells. I am told you may even see dolphins. We enjoyed our stay at Gulls Rest. It gave us a quiet and relaxing stay in a beautiful part of Devon.

The property

Gull's Rest is set high on the hillside and with magnificent views over the village of Beer - a finalist in Village of the Year 2018 - the harbour, the sea (as far as Weymouth and Portland on a clear day) and the World Heritage Jurassic Coast.

You will not be disappointed by this superbly appointed house providing guests with a luxurious base from which to enjoy all the pleasures of this popular area.

Gull's Rest is one of those rare houses which inspires an involuntary gasp of delight when you first catch sight of the views it offers.

The owners carefully extended the original house to take full advantage of the amazing views, both from inside the house (most of the front of the sitting room is glass and the vast master bedroom has a similar front wall and a balcony) and from the attractive terraced gardens immediately Outside .

With its superb facilities - state-of-the-art kitchen with granite work-tops, generous bath and shower rooms (including a sauna) - and its general air of welcome, Gull's Rest qualifies on all counts as the perfect base for an unforgettable holiday in this lovely area

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 childrens' play area. Beer is a unique Devon fishing village and a great place to stay.
