Wow talk about a tardis, this property is well furnished, decorated, light, airy and extremely comfortable.  The Old Lace Shop surprises you every time you open a door downstairs; you will find 2 sitting rooms, one of which can be used as a 4th bedroom, a wet room, a cloakroom and boot/coat area, apart from the dining room and kitchen!  Super walled garden for al fresco dining. Located in the centre of Beer only 100 meters from the beach and coastal path.  Those of you who are interested in lace making will appreciate the extensive history of this property plus the owners have a comprehensive file which includes information about Queen Victoria's dress partly made at The Old Lace Shop. 

Location: On Fore Street, just 100 meters from the sea and the coastal path.

The Old Lace Shop is one of the oldest properties in Beer with parts of it dating from the early 17th Century. Allegedly used by smugglers such as Jack Rattenbury, the upstairs window was reputedly used to watch for ships and to signal from!  The cottage went on to become a centre for the making, buying and selling of lace, and was where parts of Queen Victoria's wedding dress was made.

Another door from the dining room leads into the main lounge with sofa, two armchairs and large pouffee and bookshelves. Again there is an electric flame effect fire for those cosy evenings.
