You can't get any closer to the cliff edge than this boutique beauty – the Lynton–Lynmouth cliff railway trundles past just behind. The views are extraordinary: south Wales in the distance across the sea; russet Exmoor hills to one side. Bedrooms are a gorgeous blend of Victorian coving, dark polished woods and bright, snazzy fabrics.
As you breakfast on the suntrap terrace, look out for pods of dolphins which sometimes appear far below.
Each room at Seawood Hotel features a flat-screen TV with Sky channels, an iPod docking station, an en suite bathroom with bathrobes, and tea and coffee making facilities. Rooms offer scenic views of the Bristol Channel.
A hearty breakfast is served daily and it features full English, freshly baked bread with jams, scrambled eggs, yoghurts, and fresh fruit. Evening meals are also available and the menu offers various starts, main courses, and desserts.
Exmoor National Park is a 10-minute drive away, and Barnstaple is 20 miles from the hotel. Both Exeter and Weston-super-Mare can be reached within an hour and a half by car.
