Beer — a picturesque fishing village near Lyme Bay
Beer is situated on the 95 mile long Jurassic Coast positioned on the east coast of Devon. It forms part of the South West Coastal Path. There is a lovely shingle beach with pebbles decorating the beach down to Lyme Bay. The white chalk cliffs create a dramatic backdrop and a perfect sun trap from the winds. The boats bring in fish daily to deliver to the local stores, restaurants and the local fishmonger on the sea front.
Beer has a lot to offer. You can explore the Beer Quarry Caves – home to the famous Beer stone. Or perhaps you would rather walk through the magnificent 18th Century Bicton Gardens, set in the Otter Valley. There is something for everyone of all ages including looking around the historic glasshouses, as well as a countryside museum. Make sure you take a ride on the Bicton Woodland Railway train ride, it is a trip back in time. Try out the nature trail, the maze, and the mini golf. There is both indoor and outdoor children’s play complexes, restaurant and shops.
Every year the Beer Regatta attracts many visitors offering a week full of activities, food and market stalls.
There are plenty of eating places to choose from. Why don’t you try the Steamers Restaurant where head chef/owner Andy Williams serves fish and shellfish fresh from the waters of Beer?
