- Flanked by National Cycle Network Route 2
There’s a town called Alice and a youth hostel named Beer, which gets it points in the camping ‘stakes’ right away. And that’s even before you know that the hostel is set in a Victorian building in a hidden wooded valley – with the camping available on the old lord of the manor’s croquet lawn.
You’ll not be surprised that a campsite on the edge of the village of Beer is laden with plenty of, well, beer, with the facilities here including a restaurant pouring local ales, beer and wine as well as dishing up hearty home-cooked meals. You could even sample some local art while you’re sampling the foodie fare with the resident exhibition...?
And, if you’re rushing out of a morning to take advantage of all the local area has to offer, the friendly staff here can sort you out with breakfast and a packed lunch to keep you going – as well as give you all the info you need for a topping day out.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From A3052. At Hangman's Cross turn to Beer onto B3174. At the end turn left towards Branscombe, then follow the sign.
We are located up a pretty steep drive with a hairpin bend half way up. Don't lose faith - if a fire engine can do it then so can you!
Travellers on two wheels are well catered for here, with the National Cycle Network Route 2 going right past the campsite, and a bike shed on site with basic tools and bits and bobs to keep you rolling.
There’s plenty of mountain biking nearby, along with canoeing, kayaking, horse riding, sailing, fishing and of course ambling or cycling through the scenic countryside and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty all around.
Beer is right in the heart of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site so you can set out for the day for a spot of fossil-hunting, rockpooling and exploring, or to take a fishing trip or hire a boat only 15 minutes’ walk from the site. The South Downs Way is also nearby for some of the country’s best scenic walking.
Even closer are the must-see Beer Quarry Caves and the Pecorama Pleasure Gardens with its miniature railway, both just a few minutes’ away. And if you want to combine a leisurely amble with some celeb-spotting, stroll eight miles to Axminster to the River Cottage where you could spot chef Hugh or some of the other telly chefs, and take a class at the Cookery School.
