Accomodation in Beer, Devon was very good.. Two bathrooms! Nice parking space outside, a few minutes walk to the village/store/pubs and beach, and quiet at night. Plenty of options for dining out each night in Beer, and with 3 pubs/hotel to eat in (locally caught scallops great) and try the excellent local ales (Otter and Branscombe ales).
Very good base for walking sections of the South West coastal path-recommend taking bus to Sidmouth and walking to Beer, about 8 miles of 'roller coaster' up hills and down wooded valleys with stunning sea views thrown in! The local people from those in Beer, to those in Exeter were very friendly and helpful.
