If British seaside chic if what you’re hankering after, then this sophisticated Devonshire hotel, teetering over Babbacombe Bay, is just the ticket. From the crisp, gleaming rooms with sea views to the bijou spa room, the Cary Arms is wow-factor and comfort all rolled into one.
Eating here is all about lazy breakfasts, long lunches and sumptuous dinners with the very best of unpretentious gastro pub food. Dine al fresco on the terraces or snuggle up together by the open fire with a glass of vino. When you’re ready to explore, catch the funicular railway up the cliff to the small villages of Babbacombe and St Mary Church to explore charming little shops, cafés and pubs.
Outside, small tables and chairs line the pavements giving this pocket of South Devon a distinctly continental feel. For something a little racier, book a boat ride to your own secluded bay for a picnic, try your hand at paddle boarding or capture the sunset on a rugged cliff-top stroll.
