Beer village, Devon

Beer is a small fishing village situated on the Channel coast in southeast Devon. It lies in a small bay and is protected from the worst weather by Beer Head. The headland stands 426 feet above sea level and is the first chalk headland observed on your way east up the English Channel.

The village lies on the 95-mile long Jurassic Coast, England's first natural World Heritage Site and its picturesque cliffs, including Beer Head, form part of the South West Coast Path. Beer lies just over a mile west of Seaton and about 11 miles east of Sidmouth.

The name of the village is a corruption of the old Anglo-Saxon word 'bearu' meaning grove, referring to the original forests that surrounded the village. It is best known for its Beer Quarries and Caves, about a mile west of the village and the Pecorama tourist attraction.
