Belmont House is located in the beautiful quaint fishing village of Beer. Located on the western side of the River Axe in glorious East Devon, Beer is situated between the Regency towns of Sidmouth and Lyme Regis (in West Dorset) and neighbouring picturesque village of Branscombe. We are a two minute flat level walk to the sea front, and just off the main high street with easy access to free parking adjacent.
Belmont House is an ideal base to explore Devon, Dorset and Somerset, and perfect for visiting the country, coast, and picturesque West Country villages and towns. We are a few minutes walk from the South West Coast Path and situated at the western end of the ‘Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site’, designated in 2001 – the only natural World Heritage site in the UK.

I am happy to cater for special occasions. Please advise us at time of booking, and should you wish, I am able to arrange for flowers, champagne etc.
There is a frequent bus service from the village. The bus stop is a 1 minute flat walk away, the beach 2 minutes. Bus and train timetables are available via ‘Travel Line’ on our website in advance, or we can supply timetables on arrival. The train station is a 15 minute drive away, and is also on the bus route.
Your room will normally be ready for you after 4.00 pm. Please advise us of your anticipated time of arrival so that we can be here to greet you. If you are delayed or expect to arrive late, please let us know in case we need to make alternative arrangements. On arrival I will provide you with a parking permit (one per room if you have a car) for use in the car park opposite. This enables you to park in the main car park for ‘free’ for the duration of your stay. There is ‘restricted’ parking directly opposite our property which can be used for ‘offloading’. Please ask if you require assistance with luggage. Entry to Belmont House is through the front gate and via the front porch and door. The porch is lit at night until approximately midnight.
The width of the front garden gate is 87cm, and there is a step which is 17cm high into the property.
Our entrance porch has a non-slip mat, and the doorway width is 79cm. The outer porch door is left open giving access to displayed local information for callers to take or look at.
The inner door is locked, but there is a bell to ring for attention.
Guests are escorted into the Breakfast Room on arrival to complete a registration form.
At this point we ask if there are any special requests/requirements, or if our guests require any advice or assistance to enhance their stay. Guests are then escorted to their rooms, and the facilities are explained.
