Highly Recommended – The Malindi Bed and Breakfast in Exmouth

Word of mouth and great reviews of UK accommodation are the best recommendation, and often highlight some real hidden gem B&Bs and cottages. The friendly family run Malindi Bed and Breakfast in the heart of Exmouth is just such an accommodation, highly recommended recently by guests booking through iknow. Phil and Anne have just enjoyed a fabulous stay at The Malindi Bed and Breakfast, and took the trouble to contact us direct on 25 July 2016 commenting,

“Really good honest b&b clean homely. Close to town & sea. Very nice warm greetings from Debbie & Darren. Highly recommended”.

This little B&B gem is perfect for couples, families, friends sharing or solo travellers. The location couldn’t be better – only a 2 minute stroll from Exmouth seafront and a 3 minute walk from the town centre. Exeter is a only a 20 minute drive or train journey away and the magnificent World Heritage Jurassic Coast is just on your doorstep.

Great Things to do in Exmouth

Exmouth on the East Devon Coast at the mouth of the Exe Estuary is a perfect gateway to the Jurassic Coast and a top Devon beach holiday base. The town offers up plenty of great restaurants, shops and inns (all easy walking distance from The Malindi), and features a bustling marina and a golden sandy beach popular for watersports including windsurfing, jet ski, diving and kite surfing.

The position of Exmouth Marina at the mouth of the Exe, and in the north west corner of Lyme Bay, makes it one of Devon’s top spots for sailing. Pick up boat trip cruises from Exmouth dock (a 5 minute walk from The Malindi) and choose from estuary boat trip tours and birdwatching trips or cruises along the Jurassic Coast to Sidmouth. Head off and explore the wildlife rich estuary – a mecca for birdwatchers! Cyclists can also pick up the Exe Estuary Trail which links Exmouth to the nearby villages of Lympstone, Exton and Topsham.
