The beautiful East Devon Way brings you almost to the door of this smart, new B&B for the independent-minded. Up the exterior stair is your bright, refreshingly opinionated studio with cleverly arranged workstation and wet room with double-headed shower. The funky red leather sofa and big bed (or twins) opposite French windows invite lazing, star-gazing, Merlin-spotting. You’re free to concoct your own lavish breakfast beneath the Italian lamp whenever you fancy. Oak-floored inside, larch clad out and with kind, interesting owners across the flowered yard who’ll advise on all things local, from sea and river fishing to Exe Trail cycling.
