APRIL 2017  We so love Beer. Have been coming to this gorgeous, laid back fishing village for years and years. It feels like home and I miss it terribly when we have to head for our proper home in Wiltshire.

This is the first time we’ve stayed at Barley Cottage and I love it. Normally we stay at Beer Head caravan park but they were sold out this Easter. I would definitely book this cottage again. Miss, you Beer until the next time.  The Jackson’s – WiltshireP.S. We love this little cottage and wish we could move in but have to go home. Definitely a 10 out of 10.  Charles Jackson and Chloe Pinner
