Beer is a picture-postcard village set above a shingle beach and backed by high chalk cliffs. One of the few places where fishing boats are still winched up onto the foreshore, and you can buy just-caught fish from the crew for your tea.

The high street is lined by pretty houses and shops, and a freshwater brook runs merrily down to the sea, beside the pavement. If you aren’t beguiled by the shops and cafés, follow the water towards the sea, and stand awhile to admire the seaside allotments backed by a beautiful row of ornate cottages decorated with fancy brickwork and pebbles, before venturing down onto the beach where you’ll find lots of pretty beach huts, old-fashioned deckchairs, and best of all, informal beach cafés serving bacon butties and mugs of tea or coffee.

You could also follow the coast path on an easy wooded walk to Seaton Hole, where you can get an Italian icecream from the little clifftop café as a reward for your exercise!
