The Cary Arms, in the glorious seaside town of Babbacombe in Devon, is a charming small boutique hotel 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 4 legged friend and they will receive a warm welcome with their own bed & personlised dog bowl and treat! 2016 sees 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, and 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 right by the hotel and 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 and the Spa Treatment Room is the perfect place. Using Parisian spa and skincare brand Yon-Ka you can relax and rejuvenate with deep tissue massages, facials and manicures, perfect to wash away the aches & stresses of everyday life.

The NEW SPA OPENING SPRING 2016 will have two treatment rooms, a plunge pool with massage, a perfectly formed gym, steam room & massage shower as well as an indoor relaxation area and outdoor sun deck.


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 BBQfor al fresco cooking.
