This is one of those lovely places where everything hits the spot: friendly owners, beautiful interiors, delicious breakfasts, a great position at the top of the old town, with lanes winding down to the sea. As for this Georgian rectory, it sits in the shadow of its church and comes with a delightful garden, a great spot for drinks in summer. Interiors are pristine: hand-printed wallpapers, painted wood floors, busts and sculpture to add colour and flair. Rooms at the front flood with light, an open fire waits in the sitting room, as does an honesty bar. Much is the work of Lionel Copley, once design director for Katharine Hamnett. Bedrooms are hard to fault: crisp linen on smart beds, sumptuous fabrics and old style radiators, robes in beautiful bathrooms. A couple have claw-foot baths, one has a tromp l’oeil mural in its bathroom. Breakfast is a feast: home-baked bread, mixed fruit smoothies, house sausages and home-cured bacon. Cliff walks, sandy beaches and the excellent Jerwood Gallery wait as does a castle built by William the Conqueror. Excellent restaurants are on your doorstep. A treat.
