Babbacombe Bay

We say
Artfully masquerading as ‘The Inn on the Beach’, the Cary Arms is one of the most sophisticated hotels in Devon and a pet project of Peter de Savary and his wife Lana. Teetering over Babbacombe Bay, rooms are the best of British seaside chic, there’s a lovely spa and gastro food using the freshest local ingredients.

Recommended place to stay: Cary Arms & Spa

Cary Arms & Spa says

What do you get when you combine a seaside location, gastro pub food, coastal chic accommodation and the intimacy of a characterful inn with five star service? The Cary Arms & Spa is the answer and we can’t wait to welcome you to our ‘inn on the beach’, here on Babbacombe Bay in Devon.

  • Stunning setting
  • Informal atmosphere
  • Seaside spa

Created by Peter and Lana de Savary, our boutique hideaway is a haven for those seeking a stylish escape with zero formality. Our 10 sea-facing rooms and suites have a New England coastal feel whilst the recently-added Beach Huts are a more quirky option with split-level living and the sea almost in touching distance.

We also have four charming cottages which sleep between 4 and 8 with all the services of the hotel and a well-equipped kitchen.

Whether you are eating inside by a crackling log fire or on the sunny terraces, our food is the best of gastro-pub style with the freshest of ingredients and a relaxed atmosphere.

Head to the seaside Spa for some pampering treatments and relax in the waterfall hydrotherapy pool, steam room and sauna.

There are lots of activities on our doorstep – great walks, of course, as well as water sports, sailing and fishing for example. Some of our rooms and cottages are dog-friendly – check out our Doggy Getaways which include a dog bed and bowls, treats and a suggested local walks book.
