Dating back to 1867, this charming seaside inn is situated almost on the beach at Start Bay. The well-appointed bedrooms have en suite walk-in shower rooms, comfortable beds, tea-and coffee-making facilities and TVs; five of the seven rooms have fantastic views of the bay. The daily-changing fish menu includes locally-caught crabs, lobster and perhaps hand-dived scallops.
