Durham House is a handsome Victorian bed and breakfast with spacious rooms by the sea in the fishing village of Beer, known as Devon's best kept secret. 


We offer comfortable rooms with Egyptian cotton linen, fridge, hot drink making facilities, TV and Wi-Fi.  Our beautiful breakfast room, overlooking historic Fore Street, is a space to enjoy our range of breakfast choices or a pre dinner drink after a day exploring.

Parking is not available at Durham House but the local pay and display car park is only a 3 minute walk away - simply follow the path of the winding Beer brook towards the sea.


Please read some of our guest reviews and follow us on Facebook if considering a stay with us.
