“Small and friendly owner managed seaside bolthole of just five rooms, with a beach house feel. Cosy rooms are comfortable and clean with wonderful sea views. Cooking that finely showcases the Devon produce. Private beach access. A great weekend escape.”

Hotel Overview

“Originally built as a holiday cottage during Edwardian times, the Henley has a beach house feel and spectacular views that stretch from the Avon estuary to Burgh Island – and a private cliff path to a stretch of pristine beach. Bedrooms are simple, comfortable and spacious, the dining room overlooks the sea, and dinners, prepared by owner Martyn Scarterfield are the best sort of sophisticated home cooked food, including locally caught fish. Warm, friendly and well run.”

The Henley

"What a magical small room we've got - nothing special, actually, except for its two windows and two very different sea views: one looking out over Burgh Island and its renowned hotel, the other over an expanse of crinkled yellow sand and incoming tide."

"The feel is of a private home, with antiques, potted palms, books, magazines and resident labrador. Martyn cooks with local ingredients and flair."
