Mr Gellately August 2018
An excellent location in the very pretty village where the locals people were friendly and welcoming. The property was well equipped and cosy with tasteful beach style decorative touches to add to the charm.
Mr Miles July 2017
We would recommend this apartment to any couples that would like a good location and near to shops and pubs. Walking distance to the beach. ( 2 minutes ). All facilities in the apartment were excellent.
Mr Baggaley June 2017
The location of the property cannot be faulted. It is literally a few yards to the beach, restaurants, cafes and shops. It doesn't have any private outside space, so barbecuing isn't really an option. However, there are numerous public benches in the area overlooking the beach - we took fish and chips from the nearby chip shop and a bottle of wine to a bench and enjoyed the ambience until sundown. The property has no washing machine, so is perhaps most suitable for stays of up to a week.
Mr Daniels May 2017
Perfect accommodation in authentic and delightful village
Mrs Wade April 2017
A beautiful little retreat for two people most conveniently placed.
Mr Ade February 2017
I feel that it should be emphasised that the stairway to the cottage is very steep and for an elderly person, this may be a serious disadvantage.

Thank you for your comments about Topsails. The property is on the second floor of the building, so wouldn't be a good choice for anyone who can't manage stairs easily. We don't feel the staircase is excessively steep, but being an older property it may appear slightly steeper or narrower than a modern house. Tanya, Customer Support

Beer is such a lovely place, and having Topsails as a base was just perfect. The cleanliness, warmth, comfort and position of the apartment is excellent. I hope we will be able to stay there again.
Mrs Dunn November 2016
We really enjoyed our stay at Topsails and would return again very soon, whilst initially the accommodation seemed a little on the small side, once settled in we realised how cosy it really was, location is ideal as you really dont need to drive anywhere from this beautiful little village, we spent 4 days walking during the day, then enjoyed eating/drinking out during the evening with only a couple of steps to return to a warm and welcoming apartment - Thank you to the owners for providing very clean and comfortable accommodation!!

The apartment was excellently located, and overall nicely furnished and equipped and we very much enjoyed our stay.
Mr Thompson July 2016
Cosy accommodation in an excellent location with all the eating and drinking places to suit all tastes. Elderly or infirm people need to be aware that it is quite a climb up narrow stairs to the second floor, with only a glimpse of the sea, a narrow wedge, through the kitchen window

We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Topsails and, although we don't advertise a sea view, we're sure you'll agree that the little sneaky peek you get from the kitchen is a bonus! The apartment is on the second floor so more suited to guests who are mobile enough to climb stairs, as you found. Tanya, Customer Support
Mrs Taylor July 2016
Topsails is a tastefully decorated, well equipped cosy apartment in a perfect location in Beer. The owners added lots of little touches to make our stay comfortable; car parking permit, books, DVDs, CDs, beach bag with picnic rug, milk in the fridge, flowers etc. The tea, coffee and biscuits were welcome.
Mr Everett July 2016
Great location, nicely decorated and furnished. Very clean and comfortable. But downside is very poor sound proofing. We could hear the occupants in other apartments every move, from early morning excercising to constant background noise of them being there, especially as we would not describe them as noisy people. Very dissapointing.

We were so sorry to hear that you were disturbed by some of the neighbours - obviously Topsails is an apartment and as such, you are in close proximity to other apartments with the possibility of occasional sound transference, but we would have been happy to see what could be done to improve matters for you had we been aware. Beer is a lovely and vibrant little village as you found, and we're delighted that you enjoyed this aspect of your stay. Classic Cottages

Dr McKay April 2016
Comfortable apartment, nicely decorated in an ideal location by the sea. A perfect choice for a break!
Mr Knight February 2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Topsails. The property is in a great location, close to very good eateries and walks. It is well laid out and comfortably furnished, with a good eye to detail and enough space for the two of us. The owners' welcome/advice pack was thorough and helpful, with some useful local insights. We look forward to returning later in the year.
Mr Tandy January 2016
Spotlessly clean cottage. No complaints whatsoever. Town a bit quiet out of season. Local curry house very good. We had a great time.
Mr Morton December 2015
Lovely cottage in a fantastic location. Great to visit the area in the winter and Topsails provides an ideal bolt hole to come back to after rainy walks.
Mr Frost October 2015
A cheery, bijou seaside pad, perfect for our needs. Welcoming flowers with tea and biscuits much appreciated after a 7 1/2 hour drive!
Mrs Farmer September 2015

Mrs Newham August 2015
Beautiful cottage with lovely extras to make it feel like home. Spotlessly clean and amazing location right a the heart of pretty Beer. We'd definitely go again!
Mr Oakley July 2015
A charming flat in a great location, however could be improved with a better bed. Great walks and good food at all restaurants in Beer.
Reply from Classic Cottages
Thanks for your review of Topsails - you obviously had a great stay and enjoyed your time in Beer. Bed comfort is a very personal thing, and it's hard to find something that beats your own bed at home! It sounds as though your preference is for a slightly softer bed, although lots of guests find this mattress very comfy - we can always find out how firm a mattress is before you book if that is very important to you.

Mrs Jackson June 2015
Beautiful apartment, wonderful location. A real gem & an unforgettable holiday. Beer is a lovely little fishing harbour & village & Topsails is a stones throw from the beach. Highly recommended.
Frau Maifarth May 2015
We have a wonderful stay at Topsails. Everything was fine. Short distance to Anchorage Inn with exellent food.
Mrs Cherry April 2015
Thank you very much for a wonderful stay at Topsails. Location was perfect for a coastal holiday with excellent walking, stunning scenery and fresh seafood all on the doorstep.
Mr Hayhurst October 2014
A cosy property, well equipped and in a great location with access to lot of amenities on your doorstep. Some lovely walks along the coast.
Mrs Cripps August 2014
We had a thoroughly enjoyable week in this prettily decorated, clean and cosy accommodation. It was great to be so close to the beach, the pubs, little shops, galleries and flower filled high street of Beer. Lots to do without getting into the car - we particularly enjoyed walking across the cliffs to Branscome and Seaton Perfect holiday, would recommend!
Mrs Griffiths July 2014
Perfect place near the beach which is literally two minutes away, very clean nicely furnished, no downside just really enjoyed our stay.
Mrs Bauer June 2014
It´s a nice place to be. We would come back!
Mrs Palmer April 2014
Beautiful apartment in a fantastic location - just a stone's throw from a picturesque pebble beach. We had a very happy holidy - Beer is an excellent centre for holidaying.
Mr Whittaker March 2014
Lovely place to stay for the weekend, cosy apartment in a fantastic location. We loved Beer and enjoyed staying in the heart of the village. Great pubs, and amazing cream teas on the doorstep.
Miss Hart October 2013
Apartment was an excellent choice, was spotlessly clean, lovely fresh bedding, everything and more that we needed for our stay.Would definitely stay again.
Ms Herrmann September 2013
The house is very nice, the rooms are decorated with so many lovely details. We felt very comfortable. There is a very short distance to the beach and the village is just marvellous. The only negative thing was that no internet was provided in the house.
Mrs Lewsley September 2013
This is a wonderful place to stay and we had a lovely few days. The weather was very good and we were able to take lots of walks along the coast and cliffs which are spectacular. We visited the local areas and went to the races at Newton Abbot. Weused the local buses which are quite an experience not to be missed. We ate out at the local restaurants and would recommend the Blue Ball at Sidford but you will need a large appetite!
