We had a wonderful 2 night stay Yeoman's Acre. Des and Yvonne were really welcoming and nothing seemed too much trouble. Our room was very tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was superb. We would highly recommend Yeoman's Acre to anyone.

Extremely comfortable B & B, delightful room and excellent breakfast. Hosts were very friendly and informative and the local pub food was good value for money. Overall a fantastic 4 night break. Ideally positioned for visiting Lyme Regis, Sidmouth and Seaton.
