This beachfront shingle-clad inn is all about the wide sweep of sand just below, while putting you within 10 minutes’ drive of the aquarium. Watch the surf from the rustic wooden chairs on the sun deck, unless you’re lucky enough to have a private sea-facing balcony. Interior decor bucks the blue-and-white coastal cliché, with dark wood furniture and even retro-tiled gas fireplaces for cooler nights. You’ll get a wonderful home-cooked breakfast each day, and for everything else, Newport’s on your doorstep.
