We only stayed for one night as a respite on our journey from Cornwall to Hampshire before celebrating my partner's birthday with family at the weekend, but would love to have stayed for longer. Durham House is a delightful B and B in the lovely carefree village of Beer. Very easy going atmosphere from the moment we arrived, which is...

Durham House is in an excellent location on the main high street in Beer. The owners give you a very warm welcome and are extremely helpful. The rooms are spotlessly clean and well furnished and decorated very tastefully. Beautiful bed linen and all the little extras including cake for afternoon tea in the room. The breakfast in the morning is...

I have stayed at Durham House on many occasions and have never been disappointed, and this weekend was no exception. Richard and Sophie were able to accommodate us at very short notice and I mean keys, parking and bags in 20 mins! Our bed was comfortable, the room spotless. Tea and coffee making facilities with milk sticks rather than jiggers...

lovely, clean room, lovely breakfasts. Richard and Sophie very friendly. We found the village of Beer a good place to stay to tour the area. Durham house is a short way from the sea near several restaurants and pubs so we didn't need to travel far each evening to eat.

We have stayed at Durham House many times over the past few years and always enjoyed the experience. The location is on the main street leading to the beach and when you step out in the mornings you at once feel on holiday. Great atmosphere hearing the locals fetching their newspapers from the village store and passing the time of...

This B&B is situated a short walk from the sea front up the main high street of the town. It has a lovely appearance from the outside but becomes rather bland and uninspiring on the inside. I had occasion to speak to the owned Richard several times on the phone and eventually met him when leaving. He was always very...

We have yet again just come home from a lovely weekend in Beer This guest house is perfect, Spotlessly clean, well located close to beach, amazing breakfast and all reasonably priced.

A great welcome for 4 weary walkers of the coastal path. Could not have been more helpful - despite thick muddy boots and clothes! We were provided with trays to dry out our boots.
