guest house in Devon

"This Georgian bed and breakfast, set in a lushly-planted walled garden in the south Devon village of Chillington, has been given a stylish and uplifting mid-century-style makeover by its new owners. Lovely breakfasts, welcoming hosts and a make-yourself-at-home atmosphere make this one of our favourite Devon retreats."
