The picture postcard village of Beer is only a stones throw away from the park
Beer is one of the last remaining working fishing villages featuring traditional flint cottages, local craft shops, cafes & inns. The large shingle beach is a few minutes stroll away & offers fishing trips along the bay. The surrounding picturesque white chalk cliffs provide a natural suntrap sheltering the cove from the wind.
