My wife and I decided to take a short break in South Devon and selected Kerrington because of the good tripadvisor reviews and its excellent location being about 20 miles form Exmouth to the west and c 30 miles to Weymouth to the east with a great selection of seaside towns in between. We were not disappointed as the room was large, as was the bathroom, well furnished and comfortable. Fiona was very friendly and helpful and even offered to carry our bags to our room but being an old fashioned sort of guy i declined with thanks! At breakfast the first morning we asked Fiona not to make up our beds with the duvet etc. as it was so hot we preferred to sleep under the sheets we had brought with us. However on returning to the room later in the evening we found crisp white sheets on our beds - a nice touch. There was even a cooling fan in the room which was appreciated. Breakfast was excellent with a wide range of "starters" followed by a well presented cooked breakfast. Only two relatively small things stopped me awarding a 5* rating. Firstly a little woodwork could do with a coat of paint and secondly the shower was of the cloud or rainfall type which meant that it was not adjustable but these imperfections pale into insignificance compared with our overall experience.
