Upcott House is an award-winning Arts and Crafts villa on East Devon's stunning Jurassic coast. It is perfectly situated overlooking Lyme Bay, between the pretty fishing village of Beer and the buzzing seaside town of Lyme Regis. The panoramic sea views from the grounds are amazing and simply have to be seen to be believed!

Upcott offers groups of family and friends the perfect coastal experience. It has all the space and feel of a historic country house while featuring modern and luxurious furnishings. The south-facing lounge is large and airy, furnished with funky leather chairs and sofas, and features a wood-burning stove. A romantic turret leads to the veranda and large sun terrace, perfect for afternoon tea or an evening barbeque and to take in those amazing views.

The property is ideal for celebrating a special occasion. The oak dining table seats 12 comfortably, the kitchen is well-appointed and we can supply details of catering, housekeeping and child minding. There is also a separate lounge ideal for the kids, complete with TV, games and baby grand piano.

Our six spacious bedrooms feature hotel-grade, Vi-Spring mattresses and have wonderful sea views. There is also a handy separate cot/change room. Of our five modern bathrooms, two are en suite and all our rooms come complete with towels, bed linen and toiletries. We provide complimentary travel cots and can also supply two folding beds for parents with additional young children.

Outside, Upcott comes into its own. The large sun terrace, complete with barbeque and dining table, is perfect for al fresco entertaining. Watch the yachts sail by, listen to the sounds of the sea or just take in the sun on one of our loungers on the lawn. The house sits in private grounds and is located at the end of a quiet coastal lane. We also provide parking for up to six cars.

The West Country region

East Devon features all you might expect from the West Country - rolling green hills, stunning coasts, wonderful beaches, bluebell forests, cosy pubs, great fresh food. However, what makes East Devon so special is that you get to enjoy all that and more but without the crowds! Upcott House is located in the heart of East Devon's Jurassic Coast, which is Britain's first natural world heritage site. The SW coast path works it's way through the region connecting many of the pretty coastal villages and towns as well as giving access some of the most stunning coastal vistas in the world.

Beer

Food lovers are spoilt for choice as there is an abundance of local-provenance pubs and seafood restaurants nearby. River cottage Canteen is 15 minute drive away and Park Farm HQ is even closer. Mark Hix's renound Hix Oyster and Fish House is in nearby Lyme Regis and the well regarded Mason's Arms gastro pub is located in Branscombe. But you need only head off to one of the many local village pubs and restaurants to experience some fresh produce and down to earth service.

There is plenty to see and do for all ages, including the Pecorama model railway, landscaped gardens and indoor play station located in Beer village, Escot animal centre and Bicton Park gardens and nature reserve. The Seaton to Colyton tramway is a real local treasure, taking in lovely views along the Axe Estuary, which also has great walking and bird watching from its wildlife pods. Beer village has a lovely beach great for fishing trips and Lyme Regis has a popular sandy beach.

Shoppers will love the plethora of independent shops, antiques centres and auction houses in Beer, Sidmouth, Honiton and Lyme Regis.

River Cottage holds a number of events and festivals throughout the year, eg, its Spring and Autumn Fairs, where you can get Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall to sign a copy of his cookbooks, or just grab a coffee and delicious meal in the Axminster River Cottage Canteen. Further west, catch a Stuart Line cruise from Topsham, a pretty harbour town with Pebblebed local winery and Darts Farm produce centre.
