5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

We enjoyed a really excellent two night stay at this fantastic B&B run by Des and Yvonne .
They gave us the warmest of welcomes and showed us to our delightful room which was beautifully presented with a large KIng plus size bed, lovely furnishing and decorations, all of which showed what great taste and style they have. We couldn't have wished for a more immaculate room.
After a great night's sleep we had a delicious breakfast with locally sourced bacon and sausage and the best scrambled egg we have ever tasted.
They have created a really nice garden area with sitting area and barbeque for resident's use and many other thoughtful touches.
For us everything was perfect. A top class establishment which just oozes quality run by a couple who have the comfort of their guests at heart. In our opinion Yeomans Acre is simply superb.

Room Tip: All the rooms are named after apple varieties and our was KIdlington which was quiet being set back...

Fantastic self catering cottages at Yeomans Acre Colyford. Extremely well appointed and clean. Owners Yvonne and Des. make you very welcome and are great hosts. Also saw all the rooms in the main B&B house and sampled one of Des's breakfasts, all fantastic. Yeomans Acre is within easy reach of all the main resorts and attractions on the Jurassic coast.
The best B&B i have ever seen. Would not choose anywhere else in this area. Once again fantastic.

EXCELLENT! After a delightful two night stay at the Yeoman's Acre, I can say that this place checks all the boxes. The Yeoman's is ideally situated for accessing the awesome Jurassic Coast, surrounding idilic towns and serene countryside. Right from arrival, Des, Yvonne & Co. were incredibly welcoming and had some great information and tips about the area. We were particularly impressed by the delicious, locally-sourced breakfast (particular props for the home-made compote and the poached eggs!). Our immaculate and impeccably decorated room was a credit to the owners' high standards and eye for detail. I don't usually write reviews but this place really deserves a lot of praise since it allowed us to get the absolute most out of this beautiful part of the English countryside. Truly a gold standard for English B&Bs.

Yeoman's Acre is a relaxed and quiet B&B situated in Colyford. It's a lovely setting with great views and a lovely tranquil garden which we were able to enjoy because of the fantastic weather!
We had a wonderfully welcoming and relaxing time, Des and Yvonne (not forgetting Liz and Brett!) could not have been better hosts to our party. The rooms were beautifully decorated with a wonderful attention to detail. We had a fantastic view made better only by the wonderful weather we experienced. There was lots to see and do around the area and we visited Lyme Regis, Branscombe and Axminster - would happily recommend all three. Yeoman's acre is very much a hidden gem that more people need to know about. My advice is to book early to avoid disappointment!!

Absolutely nothing but GOOD to say about our stay. Yvonne and Des are wonderful hosts and felt like friends. We stayed in a room in the house and were delighted beyond belief. Best B & B ever. The room was spacious and very well appointed as was the bathroom. Breakfast was great and the little patio in the garden delightful after a day at the beaches. The Seaton Tram is close by and is a fun ride for all ages through the wet lands to the beach. Yoeman's is great base to explore many fabulous beach sites.

Room Tip: Had the opportunity to view all the rooms and they all seemed extremely nice. Yvonne has a great ey...

My family and I decided at the last minute to visit this area for an overnight stay and this was the only accommodation left at a reasonable price so we had no choice but to book the last available room. Wow! What a lucky find. Very tastefully decorated and immaculately clean. We occupied the family room with our 12 year old boy. It was spacious and comfortable with a lovely en-suite bathroom. The owners, Yvonne and Des, were welcoming and attentive and it was obvious that they really wanted their guests to have a wonderful stay. Breakfast was perfect and there is a very sweet little garden at the back of the property for that chilled glass of something in the evening. Well located to visit all the great beaches and attractions in that area and a pub just across the road for an evening meal. Don't hesitate, just book it!

Room Tip: Choose any, they are all good. The Russett room, which is the family room, is on the road side but t...

We stayed at Yeomans Acre, in one of the cottages (Rose Cottage) from 18th-25th July. From the moment we arrived Yvonne and Des (the owners) could'nt of been better hosts. The cottage was perfect, a home from home, everything we needed was there, including a lovely little welcome basket and milk. Even a garden with BBQ's was available for our use. Most definately we will be booking again as it was so conveniently situated near to Lyme Regis, Seaton, and Beer. One other thing was, we took our dog with us, and Yvonne was always able to tell us of good walks and dog friendly places to eat etc. FIRST CLASS !!

Room Tip: B&B or cottages, both as good as each other. Slight Road noise in day when not there, silent at...
