The Cary Arms & Spa, in the glorious seaside town of Babbacombe in Devon, is a charming, small boutique hotel and spa sitting along a wide stretch of stunning coastline. Get back to nature along the coastal paths and in the rock pools before coming back to a hearty pub lunch and contemporary beach-style rooms. This quaint little bolthole is a great place to take a romantic jaunt in the seaside air of Torquay, or a family trip to explore Devon. Bring along a four-legged friend and they will receive a warm welcome with their own bed & personlised dog bowl and treat! Summer 2016 saw the addition of beautiful new beach huts, beach suites and a stunning contemporary spa.


This lovely beachside Chic Retreat is set on ensuring a memorable seaside trip from the off. Children are provided with a bucket, spade and fishing net on arrival and will have plenty to explore along the bay. A day out fishing can be had by all with fishing rods provided, and there is plenty of bass, black bream and mackerel to find. Water sports enthusiasts will be spoilt with diving and RIB riding facilities, windsurfing, waterskiing, kayaking and sailing close to hand. Take a romantic walk along the stunning coastal paths, or explore the surrounding area by horse or bike. Guests are welcome to play tennis in the nearby courts and the family can take to the 18-hole putting green. Keen golfers up for a challenge can take to one of the award-winning golf courses.

Of course many may just want to relax in this secluded setting; the new spa which opened in 2016 has three treatment rooms, innovative mood-enhancing aromatherapy light shower, hydrotherapy pool, a perfectly formed gym, a steam room and a sauna as well as an indoor relaxation area and outdoor sun deck. Using leading marine-themed French beauty and skincare brand Thalgo, you can relax and rejuvenate with massages, facials and manicures, perfect to wash away the aches & stresses of everyday life. It is well worth indulging yourself here as spa access is complimentary with any Thalgo beauty treatment. For those of you who wish to make use of the facilities without having a treatment, there is a daily £25 charge.


The Cary Arms cooks up award-winning gastro pub meals served in a comfortable stone-walled setting or out on the terrace. The 'Captain's Table' is a great setting, a small terrace overlooking the bay, or the futuristic looking orb is a lovely spot to dine out among the garden blooms. The menu includes traditional English dishes with international influences and uses locally-sourced ingredients, a passion for local head chef Ben Kingdon. There is also an outdoor BBQ for al fresco cooking.
