If Devon had a Bermuda Triangle, hidden away inside it would be the seaside village of Beer. It’s off the beaten track but easily accessible. Eighteenth-century smugglers knew how well it was hidden away, with its beach only visible from far out at sea. Beer fishermen knew how the surrounding cliffs protected it from stormy winds, so that they could launch their boats when other fleets were kept onshore.

Beer is a living, breathing community of people who work in the surrounding area and who bring up their families here, and of people who have come to Beer to spend the rest of their lives here. They understand that their active participation in this community helps to keep Beer what it is and always has been – a beautiful place for people to be in. It continually wins awards for its beauty, including a Gold in the “South West in Bloom” awards in 2018.

Local people run the shops and pubs and businesses that are all individual with their own character. There’s food available of all kinds, from fish shops and beach cafés selling sandwiches of locally caught fresh crab that are unforgettable, to restaurants offering world cuisine. Fishing boats, deck chairs, beach huts, pots of tea and Devon cream teas – there’s everything here that you remember about great holidays. With access to the water for dinghies and paddleboards and access to mile upon mile of countryside for walking.

  • 5 out of 5 isn't enough!

    This is simply our favorite touring park along the south coast. The location couldn't be better with views to die for and an abundance of fresh sea air. The park is spic and span and extremely well kept with very friendly staff.

  • A little bit of heaven!

    Golden Cap is a little bit of heaven. The views are awesome, right next to the sea. It's all relaxed and low key just how we like it.

  • Fantastic Park

    10 out of 10 is not enough for this Holiday Park. We have been here 3 times and we love it more and more every time. The park has all you need, with some pitches overlooking the sea and a great restaurant.

  • Lovely tranquil campsite

    The location was great as we could easily walk to the village or local beaches through the beautiful countryside. I would recommend this campsite to families for a peaceful and safe stay.
