Well cobbled streets are probably out due to health and saftey and disabled access. Cream teas will be everywhere, getting a good one you need to research once you have a base.

Pubs are everywhere but to get a traditional one you need to be away from the big resorts.

It would take some research for me to find all the things you require in one area.

In Somerset you have Minehead with a huge sandy beach, old harbour, genuine cider farm,loads thatched cottages that sell cream teas on village greens . Even nearby Dunster has some cobbled streets in a medieval village with yarn market, major castle and watermill. Large number of independant pubs with real ale, 3 on the se front. All in a 5 mile radius.
