If you like the idea of a fisherman's cottage but are less so keen on the sort of rustic, back-to-basics living quarters found in many of them, this recently refurbished home in the heart of Teignmouth offers an elegant solution. Behind the front door, guests are greeted with an interior that's stuffed full of contemporary charm. The whitewashed walls and shiny wooden floors are a timelessly stylish combination and make for a chic backdrop against which you'll find a tasteful selection of nautical decorative items and comfy furnishings. We've got especially kind words for the sleek kitchen complete with a breakfast bar, as well as the freestanding bathtub in the master bathroom. Another little perk is the small terrace, which offers an alternative spot to sip coffee on warm mornings. When it comes to the home's surroundings, nowhere in the UK does adorable fishing villages like Devon – although we should probably add 'or Cornwall' here to be on the safe side. Back Beach is a minute's walk away if you fancy a paddle or hiring a boat, but you can also catch a ferry from this point that will take you over to Shaldon. Back on this side of the River Teign, the Grand Pier and seafront are close to the home, too.
