Your Destination

Described by The Telegraph as 'nothing short of spectacular', the setting that surrounds the The Cary Arms is something to behold. Set beneath the cliffs of the paradise-like Babbacombe Bay near Torquay on the South Devon coast, the seaside property enjoys a truly magical position. The pebbly Babbacombe beach and the South West Coastal Path is right outside the door, the vibrant harbour towns of Brixham and Dartmouth are closeby, and Dartmoor National Park is a 30-minute drive away. Marvel at the remarkable views of sun, sea and sky at this outstanding location. 

What’s it like? The sea pervades its every fibre. The Cary Arms sits right on the seafront, at the foot of Babbacombe’s 300ft cliffs, just round the headland from Torquay. The English Riviera just got very stylish.

The Cary Arms 5*

Characterised by its coastal charm, The Cary Arms is a seafront haven. Fusing the traditional values of a classic English Inn and the stylish elements of its luxury status, the property boasts excellent seaside gastronomy, a delightful must-visit spa and a variety of sea-facing rooms, suites and cottages. While away blissful days indulging in a spa treatment, picnicking on the beach, and having a leisurely lunch on the outdoor terrace, gazing out to crystalline waters. 

This delightful seaside hotel on Devon’s south coast is a setting from a Mills and Boon romance and a Famous Five adventure rolled into one. Queen Victoria was equally enchanted 150 years ago, rowing ashore with Prince Albert from the Royal Yacht on several occasions.
