    • “Absolutely loved it. Brilliantly equipped, high standard and comfortable. Loads of space. Loved being on the farm and seeing the animals. The views were lovely, hot tub well used and pool and table football enjoyed by all. Our ages ranged from 1 year to 84, and the barn had enough for all of us.”

    Mrs Gilmour, Bristol, December 2018

    • “Fantastic property for large groups / extended family to holiday together. Beautiful location. Owner very helpful and accommodating. Would definitely book again.”

    Mr Lynn, Swansea, November 2018

    • “A wonderful stay at the barn for our third year as a large family group. I have now been to this location 6 times and each time its hassle free, perfect set up, great location and an amazing property. We look forward to returning again next year.”

    Mrs Davies, Plymouth, October 2018

    • “This place was amazing the grandchildren were in hevan Feeding the peacocks who knocked on the door collecting the eggs from the chickens for breakfast each morning The Barn itself was so roomy warm and plenty of everything for your needs The area was so peaceful and we were blessed with fantastic weather We will definitely be back thank you”

    Mrs Down, RADSTOCK, October 2018

    • “Online booking system is easy to use and email communication clear and timely. The property was very good and in a wonderful setting. A couple of minor points - in such a large property king size beds in one or two of the bedrooms would not be out of place and the addition of some larger mirrors would help with make up/clothes choices according to the ladies in the group.”

    Mr Clemmit, NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE, July 2018

    • “Brilliant place tucked away, far away from day to day life. Great facilities and helpful host that is happy to give you space, but also be close to hand if there are any questions - perfect for either a quiet weekend walk or a party. Would highly recommend.”

    Mr White, London, June 2018

    • “Great setting for a week away - morning breakfast on the patio with the lovely views, no better start to the day. The Barn is spacious, well presented and very well fitted out. Our group of 9 adults had a great stay. Highly recommended.”

    Mr Wilson, WINCHESTER, May 2018

    • “The Barn is in a wonderful setting where on a sunny day the view from the new patio is amazing......I found it very difficult to read my book as I had to keep looking around. Plenty of walks from the door.....a bonus if you have dogs. The mornings were the peaceful and still......we were up early! The kitchen is very well the Aga which created a very warm cozy feel to the rooms downstairs. The pool table and football game helped to while away many an hour during the evening as did the hot tub. Plenty of TVs and films to watch, but they hardly got a look in! The only real negatives were the squeaky floorboards upstairs and the main double bed upstairs sagged in the middle. So many places to visit.......particularly liked Beer.....we walked from there to Seaton and back. Branscombe.....park in the village and take a circular walk down to the beach and back.....the hillside was covered in wild garlic in May. The pub there called the Mason Arms is well worth stopping for lunch. Sidmouth.....walked up to Higher Peak Hill and then down into the town for lunch. Quite busy on a sunny day, but plenty to see and do. Beautiful beaches everywhere. Can certainly highly recommend staying here.”

    Mrs Haylock, FORDINGBRIDGE, May 2018

    • “The Barn was wonderfully spacious but at the same time had a warm and friendly feel. There was plenty to do with the games, hot tub & some lovely local walks. I have never stayed anywhere with such beautiful countryside on our own doorstep!”

    Mrs Robotham, BEXHILL-ON-SEA, April 2018

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.
