Des and Yvonne made us very welcome and our tastefully refurbished room was ideal for our needs. I would strongly recommend that this is the place to choose if your visit takes you to this beautiful corner of the country.
The breakfast too was tasty cooked to a very high standard.

We stayed in one of the cottages which are owned by the owners of Yeomans acre b&b we highly recommend these well equipped comfortable cottages! The standards of cleanliness were superb too.
the owners Des and Yvonne made us feel very welcome and attended to our every need, they were very hospitable and informative, nothing was too much trouble. There's two good pubs on the doorstep of the property and a well stocked shop.
We particularly enjoyed the out door space area which was a real sun trap from morning to night and the opportunity to have a barbecue was a real bonus!

Room Tip: There's no pool or fitness room I couldn't deselect these !

I booked this B&B on the reviews i saw in Canada for a trip with my parents and we weren't disappointed in the least. We stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting the Sidmouth area and what a fantastic place to stay. Our host where great, very knowledgeable about the local area and very welcoming too. Breakfast was marvellous. This is one not to miss when staying in this area.

We stayed two nights at YA. It was a delightful visit. We were greeted by the famously charismatic hosts, Des and Yvonne, who made us so welcome we almost felt like family. Nothing was too much trouble. Gluten free? No problem. Leave a few things behind? No problem. These good people have invested much money, time and effort in refurbishing their premises and the results are remarkable - well-appointed rooms tastefully updated, everything you need, and the full English breakfast is as good as we've had anywhere. Come to this delightful area, look around (there is so much to see and do) and above all, don't stay anywhere else!

Yeoman's Acre is a real find. Des and Yvonne couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming, really lovely hosts.
For those interested in nature you couldn't find a better place to locate yourself for the RSPB reserve at Exe estuary and the Local Nature Reserves of Seaton Marshes, Black Hole Marsh and Colyford Common. There are so many more excellent wildlife sites with a broad range of habitats available within easy reach from Yeoman's Acre, it is better to visit to see!
The room we stayed in was very clean, bright and warm, both the shower and hand basin had toiletries provided and Des explained the facilities very clearly. Despite facing the road we were not disturbed by traffic noise.
Our breakfast was exceptionally good. A very freshly prepared fruit salad and/or a full English breakfast was on offer as well as the usual cereals, toast or croissant. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to a longer visit next time in one of Des and Yvonne's self catered cottages.

Room Tip: This is an exceptional place and it is all good.

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
