I would like a midweek break Monday to Friday preferably though can be a bit flexible. Ideal location would be a cottage/cabin or suchlike somewhere along the Dorset Devon Cornwall coastline. BUT being fickle Yorkshire is also possible, November would be good timewise.

Specifics 
Accessible by Rail but dont mind a bit of a hike on arrival
Two people
Reasonable standard, dont want the Ritz but needs to be clean and tidy
Needs to have some catering but not a full blown kitchen,
Big enough to stick the bikes inside
Would like a Restaurant/decent pub on site or nearby to eat without using or needing a car to get there  
Good cycling area for mountain biking on trails and pathways

Not asking much I know but if anyone has any suggestions or can reccomend somewhere I would be eternally thankfull

Doesn't  your suggestion fail on this requirement?

Reasonable standard, dont want the Ritz but needs to be clean and tidy.

Go to Grassington in Yorkshire. Great place for running and cycling around the Dales. 

My parents have a self catering holiday cottage up there (sleeps 4 and then another 2 in a bunk bed) just off the square where there are plenty of restaurants and pubs. 

Only downside it that it could be abit of a gamble with the weather in November but the cottage does have a nice real fire in the lounge.

Devon suit you?

Train London to Axminster and then a 10 mile bike to location?
