New to the market in 2015, Crabpot Cottage is an immaculately presented, characterful property containing everything a couple needs for a relaxing break at the seaside including sea views and the best location in Beer. For all stays we offer a free parking permit and welcome hamper of local produce for our guests.
Available all year round, this property offers stays of 7 days or more, with Saturday changeovers, as well as short breaks and flexible arrival days in the low season (October to December).
One of only 3 houses within Beach Court, the property was originally built in 1903 and used as a holiday home for the renowned opera singer Dame Clara Butt. In 1918 the property became a hotel before being converted in the 1990s into a small collection of houses and apartments which can be found today.
Crabpot Cottage offers guests a holiday home in simply one of the best locations in Beer. 50 metres from the beach and slipway, this sunny, south facing cottage has a large double bedroom with Beer stone window seat offering views down to the sea. The room was refurbished in November 2015 with new carpets and soft furnishings. It features a King size bed with white Egyptian cotton bedding and 24inch flat screen HDTV with dvd, walk in wardrobe and cd/radio. Also upstairs is the large bathroom with electric shower, bath, wash basin and WC.
Downstairs the cottage has a gorgeous cosy sitting room and dining area facing the slipway and beach. Comfortably furnished to a high standard including a flame effect log fire, 32inch flat screen HDTV with dvd and a contemporary dining area. There is also a well equipped kitchen with electric cooker, fridge, microwave, washing machine and modern appliances throughout.
New ROINTE digital radiators and towel rails have been installed throughout and ALL ELECTRICITY, HEATING, BED LINEN AND TOWELS ARE INCLUDED IN PRICE as we think our guests don’t want to worry about these things when on holiday!
We love Beer and look forward to sharing this magical part of the world with you. We’re on hand to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible and can advise on things to do and see if you wish.

Fantastic seaside location
Crab Pot Cottage could not be better located, being a hundred yards from the sea shore. The property is very well presented and has all of the modern conveniences necessary for a pleasant stay. We were greeted with a lovely welcome hammer - a really nice touch, and the parking permit for Beer is a great bonus, as all cap parks are metered. The cottage is well decorated and very clean. It was a pleasant surprise to find the cottage had an extremely comfortable bed. The only observation was that some of the bathroom fittings (loo roll holder, toothbrush holder) were insecure and looked like they might fall off at any moment. There are wonderful walks in both an easterly and westerly direction, and there are lots of places close by to visit. Beer has lots of pubs and restaurants, most of which welcome dogs. Whilst WiFi is available locally, reception in the cottage was limited. All in all, we had a very pleasant stay with our dog in a lovely location, in a very well presented cottage.
Very clean and comfortable cottage.
Ideal location in the centre of Beer. Friendly village. Lovely scenic walks.
As always exceeds all expectations. The best break of the year for us. Quaint, clean, warm, well equipped and above all cozy. Location excellent.
Fantastic location, comfortable, well equipped and cosy
A lovely cottage with everything you need for a holiday. Location is unbeatable with great restaurants and pubs within a short walk. The coastal path is outside the front door with lovely walks in both directions that are well marked. The owners were great, having thought about the little things to make our stay great.
Beer is a friendly and charming place with a range of eating places - all very good
Crabpot cottage is a delightful place to stay - beautifully presented with every facility and utensil one would require for self catering. Extremely comfortable- thank you
Really enjoyed our stay here at Crabpot Cottage, well furnished and the greatest location in Beer, right in the centre of Town. We will go back some time soon
The delightful East Devon fishing village of Beer is located on the World famous Jurassic coast. Beer is steeped in history, with the sea and fishing being central to village life. Infamous for smuggling and lace making in days gone by, today local families and visitors alike love Beer for its picturesque village charm and sheltered beach. For a small village Beer has a lot to offer!
A delightful narrow brook runs through the village trickling down to the sea, passing stone cottages, art galleries (exhibiting a vast collection from both local and national artists), independent shops, restaurants, pubs, wine bars and cafes.
Beer's sheltered pebble beach is a natural suntrap, where you can enjoy lunch or a cream tea at one of the many beach cafes or simply take your fish and chips to one of the many deckchairs and watch the sunset. There are self-drive motor boats and fishing trips during the summer season where budding fishermen can try to catch a mackerel or even a sea bass. Others may enjoy exploring the rock pools beneath the chalk cliffs. If you are visiting Beer in August then keep an eye out for Regatta week which includes a packed programme of events to suit all ages including raft races, traditional lugger racing, scavenger hunts, barrel rolling and a firework display.
Whilst in Beer, why not explore the South West Coastal Path and walk over the cliff from Beer to nearby Branscombe where you can visit the National Trust working forge or sample the locally brewed Branscombe Ale at one of the local pubs. Alternatively continue walking and you will reach the Regency seaside town of Sidmouth, famous for its folk festival in August and beautiful gardens and observatory. Heading east, you can wander over the cliff to Seaton, the site of the new £4 million Seaton Jurassic visitor centre, which opened in 2015. A visit to the viewing hides at Seaton Marshes Nature Reserve is a must to observe numerous birds including; herons, oyster catchers and little egrets, and you may even glimpse the local otters or water voles. The Seaton Tramway also travels through the wetlands to the medieval town of Colyton for those feeling less energetic. 7 miles further east is the Dorset town of Lyme Regis with its sandy beach, where you can enjoy a spot of fossil hunting or wander around the vintage shops and numerous speciality food outlets.
Attractions around Beer include: the beautifully designed Pecorama gardens and Beer Heights Light Railway where you can ride the narrow gauge passenger train whilst taking in the views down the valley towards the sea. Beer Quarry Caves can also be found on the outskirts of the village and offer guided tours around these famous caves which supplied stone for the Tower of London and Windsor Castle. Other attractions within easy reach include The Donkey Sanctuary, (free admission), Bicton Gardens and Abbotsbury Swannery, Killerton House (headquarters of the National Trust). There are also 2 cinemas and indoor swimming pools in the nearby towns.
For those wishing to dine out, there are plenty of places to eat in the village. The two main pubs (Anchor Inn and The Dolphin) have both been completely refurbished recently. The Anchor boasts a delightful beer garden next to the slipway with fantastic views across the bay. Steamers Bistro can be found down one of the side streets and is open all year round serving local fish and Mediterranean inspired dishes. Osborne’s coffee and wine bar is open 7 days a week until 11pm, serving light bites and tapas. There is also an Italian and an Indian restaurant in the village. For a special treat, why not try Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall’s River Cottage Canteen (8 miles away) or Mark Hix’s Oyster and Fish House in Lyme Regis.
