    • “We were greeted with a bottle of wine which was very welcoming. A really beautiful cottage with wonderful views the presence of various animals roaming just feet from us was a plus! Would highly recommend.”

    Mr Cecil, Bracknell, September 2018

    • “Lovely, well equipped cottage with stunning views across beautiful countryside. Welcoming and helpful owner Joanne. Animals provide an added interest, particularly Percy the peacock who visited every day for his chocolate biscuit.”

    Mrs Felton, SHEPTON MALLET, August 2018

    • “Very well equipped accommodation. Fantastic views of the countryside from the conservatory. Jo, the owner, was so lovely, friendly and helpful. Our ages ranged from 10 to 77 and we all had a wonderful time there.”

    Mrs Smith, Christchurch, August 2018

    • “Very relaxing in idyllic setting - just what we wanted thank you”

    Mrs Hawkins, Bracknell, June 2018

    • “We have stayed at Hiscox cottage many times and hope to stay again in the future. It is like home from home, the views are stunning and the cottage is beautiful. The kids love the animals and the dogs love the walks! The location is perfect for visiting coastal towns like Lyme Regis and Sidmouth with their many dog friendly shops and eateries. Thank you for another great holiday :-)”

Regional Information

SOUTHLEIGH Beer is a small picturesque fishing village on the south Devon coast between Seaton and Branscombe. 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.
