YHA Beer, Devons Jurassic Coast


Originally built in 1903 under the name Bovey Combe, it was opened as YHA Beer in 1961. This attractive country house was finished in honey-coloured stone which sets the building apart from most.

This Jurassic Coast hostel is set in a light and airy country house in its own tranquil grounds on the edge of the fishing village of Beer, and is perfect for walking weekends along the nearby the South West Coastal Path. Many of the features in the hostel are original, including the parquet flooring.

The hostel is just a 10-minute stroll from the centre of the village and the beach, and supplies can be purchased from the local shop – fresh fish is even available direct from the fishermen on the beach!.


YHA Beer has 39 beds in a selection of private and dorm rooms, one of which is en-suite.

There is a cosy TV lounge where you can relax in the evenings and a drying room where you can hang your soggy walking trousers or park your muddy boots.

Two bedrooms have en-suite shower/toilets. Additionally, there are 4 toilets and 3 showers plus 2x shower/toilet rooms suitable for people with disabilities. But don’t forget to bring your own towels.
