Yeoman's Acre Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 4 Colyford B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 June 2014

We had a lovely time at Yeoman's B&B and Des and Yvonne were excellent hosts. The rooms were refurbished to a high spec, the beds were really comfortable adding to a blissful sleep. The bathroom had great facilities and the additional toiletries were a bonus. Des and Yvonne put themselves out to ensure we had an additional bed for one of our children and made us all feel extremely welcome. The standard of breakfast was particularly high and catered especially well for the vegetarians amongst us. The dining room had a lovely feel to it and we really loved the attention to detail including the lovely glass full of fresh flowers every day. Thanks for the tip about Kelly's Kitchen and we did make it there and loved the furniture. We will definitely stay at Yeomans again. The self catering accommodation looks really good for a longer break and great value for money. I am also pleased you managed to wear the lovely bracelets Martha made for you! The Taylor family

My friend and I had a wonderful warm welcome from Des and Yvonne where we stayed for a few days. Such a great couple. Put themselves out every time, so friendly and caring. The rooms were beautiful and loved the complimentary toiletries. Wonderful big breakffasts and sitting outside in the sunshine for our "happy hour" in the early evening before taking ourselves to the Wheelwright Arms. Perfect place to stay, Thank you for such a lovely time. If you're in the area please stay at Yeomans Acre with Des and Yvonne, you'll have a great time.

Had the pleasure of staying with Des and Yvonne for the weekend when we visited the River Cottage Farm event.
Beautifully refurbished rooms and the attention to detail and luxury touches of the highest quality. Amazing value for money. Breakfast is a good selection of fresh. Local sausages were delicious.
They also have 2 self catering apartments. Plenty of outside spaces to enjoy a barbeque and admire the view.
Thanks for a lovely time we are looking forward to visiting again.

A very warm welcome from Des and Yvonne. Beautifully appointed rooms, no detail was overlooked and no request was too much trouble. Great pub opposite for evening meals only surpassed by a sumptuous breakfast provided by Des, all of which was locally scourced. we will definately recommend this charming B&B to all family and friends and will return in the future. Great place for a sisterly reunion. Maggie and Hazel

Room Tip: Actually no swimming pool or fitness centre but if ther were they would be excellent!!

We really enjoyed our stay here. The owners make guests feel very welcome and everything is such a lovely, high standard. The room we stayed in was gorgeous; very comfortable bed, great shower and hot drink making facilities. There were also a number of nice touches such as the towel radiator and a heater in the bathroom. Everything was very clean.
Breakfast in the morning was substantial and really tasty.

The location is only an 8 minute drive from Lyme Regis, in the evening we took a taxi in to town and back for a really good price. We liked the quiet location and there’s a nice outdoor area for when the weather is nice.

We’ll definitely be returning to explore the area around the B&B as well as more of Lyme Regis.

We stayed at the Yeomans Acre for one night as my husband and I were en route toSouth Devon and then North Devon. We had the ground floor front room with our own entrance. Very comfortable and we were shown all that it had by the host Des. We were also warmly greeted by hostess Yvonne. Breakfast was plentiful with cereal, fruit and local produce for a full English cooked breakfast. We will definitely rebook the next time we are due to attend South Devon. Excellent value for money.
