'Victoriana with a twist' best defines this excellent B&B, where stately fireplaces meet mock-flock wallpaper and stag heads wearing aviator goggles. Rooms team a heritage feel with modern comforts; bathrooms feature 19th-century-style tiles. If you like outdoors space, request the double with its own roomy deck.
Cheaper rooms have a little less flair and share bathrooms, but are still perfectly comfortable.
A 5-minute walk from the train station and close to Dartmoor, this Victorian town house is situated in the heart of Exeter.
