East Devon for cottage holidays
East Devon features pebble beaches at Seaton, Beer, Branscombe (NT protected), sandy beaches at Sidmouth, and Exmouth.
The seaside town of Beer is shown in the photograph. There are boats on the sea front, sand and a scenic cliff top walk to Seaton.

We recommend Sidmouth for a family holiday, especially the end near Jacob's Ladder; the beach is sandy and clean with rock pools and a gentle incline making it very safe for children. There are toilets and a restaurant on the cliffs above.
A stay in east Devon means that you can easily pop over the border to Dorset and more beaches at Lyme Regis or drive down the coast to Chesil beach for fossil discoveries in the Jurassic coastline.
