In a leafy crescent, this handsome house once belonged to a cousin of Robert Louis Stevenson, and the celebrated writer would doubtless be happy to lay his head in this good-value B&B. The public spaces retain original features—including beautiful fireplaces and ornate cornices—the writer would have enjoyed. The bright and spacious rooms have a quirky mix of Edwardian and modern furnishings and artworks. Those who don't sleep so easy will appreciate crystal decanter
with just enough whisky to send you off.
