  • Who could resist visiting a village with this name? From the Anglo-Saxon “bearu”, a grove of trees, Beer is on the 95-mile long Jurassic Coast, England’s first natural World Heritage site. Picture postcard with a stream running through it the village grew up around a smugglers’ cove. Smugglers once used the caves, in the picturesque cliffs, to store contraband goods. The Anchor appears to be early Victorian but is likely to be on the site of a previous inn. It exhibits ghostly manifestations including two elderly lace makers. They had been lifelong customers at the Anchor but died in a fire at their cottage many years ago.
