YHA Beer

Bovey Combe, Beer, Devon EX12 3LL


Ideal for exploring the Jurassic Coast and beautiful beaches of Devon, YHA Beer makes a perfect base for groups. Whether you’re on a school trip learning about dinosaurs or a walking group keen to explore the South West Coast Path, this child-friendly hostel really rocks.

YHA Beer is a stunning Arts and Crafts building, boasting light and airy social spaces, plus a huge garden to relax in. There’s a comfy TV lounge, games and plenty of books to go around – not mentioning a beach just minutes away.

Group catering is available, including packed lunches and hot meals. There’s also a licensed bar selling beer, cider and wines as well as soft drinks. The fishing village of Beer is populated with local smuggling legends, and the Jurassic Coast is great for budding fossil hunters, geologists and photographers. Or for a great day out, have a day at Beer Quarry Caves, the Donkey Sanctuary or even River Cottage!
