A great seaside pub with fabulous views, comfy rooms and great food. 

The Cricket Inn

Beesands Kingsbridge TQ7 2EN 01548 580 215

We say

Tucked away in the pretty little coastal village of Beesands, just 7 miles from Kingsbridge and 12 miles from Dartmouth, the Cricket Inn is a beautiful seaside spot by any standards, and the sort of place we really like – a quaint old fishing inn that has been reinvented as a light and spacious gastropub with a handful of comfortable rooms upstairs to collapse into after a pleasant evening. All in all it feels wonderfully remote, with seven rooms in all, five of which have jaw-achingly beautiful views of nearby Start Bay which you can enjoy without even getting out of bed. There's a seaside-cum-nautical theme throughout, and all the rooms – variously named after cricket grounds and cricketers – come with en-suite baths (some have spacious walk-in showers too), complimentary toiletries, flatscreen TVs, tea-and coffee-making facilities and room treats, free wifi and extremely comfortable kingsize beds – while in the morning their mighty (and award-winning) Devonshire breakfast is a fabulous way to start any day. The welcome is warm and service excellent – indeed we can't think of many better places for a peaceful foodie break by the sea.
