Bed and Breakfast Accommodation in Beesands, Devon

The Cricket Inn

The Cricket Inn

The Cricket Inn first opened its doors in 1867 and is within the small fishing village of Beesands nestled within the idyllic South Hams countryside only metres from the sloping beach and crystal clear waters of Start Bay. To the northeast of the bay we have Dartmouth Harbour Entrance and to the southease the Start Point Lighthouse, one of the most southerly points in mainland UK. The Cricket is a welcome gathering place for both locals and visitors alike, offering real ales, great wines and fantastic food, the menu has an abundance of fresh seafood and local produce including locally reared beef & lamb plus locally grown vegetables but one thing we can guarantee is that the crab, lobster and scallops were caught in the bay in front of the Inn.

The South West Coastal Path runs through the heart of the village making Beesands and The Cricket Inn a mecca for walker, plus the beautiful 1km beach with crystal clear waters make it ideal for bathers and anglers alike.

The Cricket has been sympathetically extended with completion in May 2010, giving space for a new restaurant and four new letting rooms (giving eight in total), which allows us to have the flexibility to cater for small to medium size parties for private dining, birthdays, anniversaries or that special weekend away with a group of friends or family. The bar area is dog friendly for dining or just having a drink, with some tables reserved for drinkers only. The new restaurant is air conditioned with folding doors for those summer days giving an alfresco feel with an amazing sea view, the whole of the Inn is bright and airy decorated in pastel colours with the walls adorned with black and white photos of yesteryear.
