Short romantic break

Hi all, I'm hoping to take my husband away for a couple of days (if he's lucky I might even bring him back!) along the coast in Devon, and would like a nice hotel with good food (not just B & B) and good parking. Sea views. Does anyone have recommendations? Don't want to hit very busy roads, will be going near the end of August though so might not be able to avoid that. Have an average budget, would like something of quite good standard but can't afford a castle, sadly! Many thanks in advance.

Hi, seems like you have an interesting aim! Try the Elmfield in Ilfracombe if you are looking for a hotel. In South Devon I would recommend The Salty Monk which is like a restaurant with rooms and really nice!

Good luck

Not sure what you class an 'average budget' but you cannot get much more romantic than here http://www.burghisland.com/ and I can't think that you would get better sea views either!

The Salty Monk doesn't have sea views though does it? If it's the one in Sidford that I know.

It's a nice restaurant but it's in East Devon and not South Devon.

Sorry to be pedantic!

Combe House is a stunning place but it doesn't have sea views and it is a bit expensive - but if it's romance you're after then try this...
