About YHA Beer

This Arts and Crafts house with child-friendly facilities on the edge of Beer village is a great choice for cheap family holidays and school trips. For an activity break, try mackerel fishing and safe sea swimming at the nearby beach or for a real Jurassic coast holiday: fossil hunting. For walking holidays there's the nearby the South West Coastal Path.

YHA Beer offers delicious home cooked meal in its restaurant. Have a look at a sample menu of what you can expect when you eat with us here.
