  The Detail...

In Salcombe on Devons wonderful southern coast, Brightham House Hotel offers a sumptuous bed and breakfast experience with a 5-star AA rating. On entering, you will soon discover this place is something special, with its eight boutique rooms accompanied by a spacious outdoor terrace with a wood-fired hot tub.

Opened in 2018, this one-of-a-kind guest house has already featured on Channel 4s Four in a Bed and won a few awards too. Located in the Marlborough area, around two miles west of the centre of Salcombe, the property is available for exclusive use as well as room by room.

The eight guest rooms have been individually styled, each one with its own name and theme. Theres a subtle Art Deco hint to the dcor of the Pavilion Premier King Room, a spacious room with double-aspect windows overlooking the village and local church. There are definite Asian accents in Dome, another king room which can be a twin, while woodland cabin and caravanning vibes come to the fore in Dartmoor.

Theres a nautical touch to Courtyard View, with a few local artefacts to look out for, while Preston Circus embraces a fairground theme. Brighton Rocks goes deliciously retro with some mid 20th-century kitsch, and its all about nature in the Garden Room which looks out on the courtyard garden with its pond and waterfall.

Finally, a small travel-inspired twin room keeps things cosy but just as luxurious. All rooms come with an en suite bathroom with Rituals toiletries and drinks facilities including a capsule coffee machine. Best of all, three of the rooms are dog-friendly.

A property full of personality, Brightham House has added a few more special extras. The wood-fired hot tub in the courtyard is a real treat, and spacious to boot. There are outdoor seating and dining areas, and a fitness hut should you wish to exercise. Also well worth a mention, the top-quality breakfast menu courtesy of chef and co-owner Scott, with Full English, continental and more. Try the porridge brle with a tot of Devon cream on the side.

With an array of family and dog-friendly beaches, delightful Salcombe has plenty to offer its a great place for water-sports and bracing walks. There are numerous excellent restaurants around the area too. Be sure to check out nearby Kingsbridge and Bigbury for more recommended dining at the likes of Twenty Seven and The Oyster Shack.
