Everything’s been thought of at this stunning two-bed cottage in Beer – with the added bonus of a parking space! This beautiful seaside retreat is light and airy with stylish interiors and lovely decor with nautical motifs throughout. It makes a really couple or family-friendly base for exploring this vibrant and pretty village and the wider East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. And the fact that you’re within 0.5 miles of the shingly beach is a real winner too.

This modern end-of-terrace cottage offers open-plan living accommodation downstairs in the lounge/kitchen/diner. This bright room has underfloor heating ensuring it’s really cosy. Cook in the contemporary kitchen with all mod cons to eat at the table easily seating four and near enough to the kitchen for the chef to feel part of things. Suitably sated, sink into the inviting sofa seating in the lounge area. Upstairs await one elegant king-size bedroom and a charming twin – both calming spaces for a great night’s sleep. Sit on the bench by the front door or at the bistro set on your enclosed patio for early cuppas or sundowners.

Take the chance to explore the impressive Jurassic Coast during your getaway. By foot you can join the South West Coast Path and get a different perspective. Seaton is just 2 miles away by the footpath, or keep going and let it all hang out (quite literally!) at Haven Cliffs Naturist Beach (3.5 miles). Branscombe Beach is a 3-mile walk via an inland route. Ride on the Seaton Tramway out to Colyton and back if you get tired of all that walking. For something a bit different, check out the great work they do at The Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth (6.5 miles).

Everything was to our satisfaction with the acception of the check in and check out times. Most accommodation check in times are between 12:00pm and 3:00pm and check out times 10:00am/11:00am. Effectively we lost a day in our 7 day holiday. Your check in and check out times don't seem entirely fair.

We had such a lovely stay at the Old Sail Loft, the property was spotless, comfortable, very modern and beautifully decorated. It was a very short walk to the beach and the town amenities, even for our 7 years olds little legs. Beer is such a beautiful village, we were devastated when it came time to leave!
