We stayed here for the weekend of the local Beer Blues Music Festival and we had another very pleasant stay. The Durham House is very welcoming, clean and comfortable. Its owners are continuing to decorate and modernise - the dining room is lovely - and the bedrooms we have stayed in have been very well-appointed and comfortable. And the mark...

A really friendly welcome from the young proprietors and great service was received throughout our stay. A characterful building with a modern, warm and relaxed interior. A parking permit for the nearby car park was provided which was a nice touch given Beer is a small village with little space for cars otherwise. This is a location that excels at...

We recently stayed at Durham occupying 4 rooms, all were exceptionally clean and beautifully presented. The breakfasts superb, all choices! Martin and Shelley very helpful and welcoming. A lovely house in a prime location in Beer, which is a lovely calm relaxing Devon village.

Perfect! A lovely room, clean and well presented. The location is beautiful, the owners are friendly and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful and they were kind enough to cook mine early as I had to leave. A lovely visit - would definitely go again.

Fantastic stay, Durham house has a great location in Beer. The room was spotless and very well maintained. I was a little worried about the showers from reading other reviews but there was lots of hot water and good pressure. This is obviously a well established and well run B&B with experienced owners. The breakfast was good - can reccomend...

Relaxed but friendly welcome from the owner of this beautiful B&B. We had a lovely, spotlessly clean room. Durham house is perfectly placed in Beer. Close to the little harbour and near a couple of very good restaurants. A useful guide to all the amenities and to places to visit was left in the room. Breakfast was delicious, with lots...
