A great seaside pub with fabulous views, comfy rooms and great food.
Beesands Kingsbridge TQ7 2EN 01548 580 215
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.
