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...

We were on our way home from Cornwall, we booked this about last month. Every thing was ok, the room keys had been left out on a desk in the entrance hall for us.

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. While a guest there you are left alone but hosts are only a button away, you do not feel your in someone's living room which is a perfect mix....

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. Lovely warm rooms (4 & 8) - and great breakfast to set us up for a further day of walking. We had twin rooms one with...

A warm welcome from our host Richard on arrival was just what we needed after a long day travelling. Our room, number 5, was tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable. We did worry about being cold (February and blustery weather) but the duvet was thick and warm, the best we've ever had in any B&B or hotel. Breakfast was excellent and...

We stayed here in July 2015. Martin was wonderfully patient with our late arrival from London! Breakfast was delicious and Martin gave wonderful directions to various spots, including the cliff walk from Beer into the nearby village of Branscombe (highly recommend!). Rooms were comfortable and cosy. Free parking is just a short walk away. We were slightly disappointed that there...
