The Cary Arms - The Inn on the Beach

The Riviera Reborn - The Best of Devon

A boutique hotel exuding charm

The Inn on the Beach - exuding charm, fun and all the values of a good English inn with the style and comfort of a boutique hotel. Great seaside gastro-pub dining, family friendly (including the dogs) complemented by chic rooms and cute cottages.

Sitting in the sheltered and sunny spot of Babbacombe Bay on the south Devon coast, the outstanding setting and views are breathtakingly beautiful, 365 days of the year. Hearty breakfasts, long lunches and lazy suppers; it's about delicious food made with fresh, local ingredients, simply and creatively cooked according to the season.

Spend your days with a restorative massage or Yon-Ka spa treatment, a picnic down on the beach or take a table on the terrace for lunch. If you're lucky and book early you might bag the prized Captains Table.

NEW! Those arriving on the moorings by boat ,can now tender to the new pontoon on the pier, steps from the inn.

Come stay and see for yourself. What Rock is to Cornwall, Babbacombe is to Devon, only more laid back.

"One of the fifty best beach bars in the world " chosen by CNN

See what the other press have said about the Cary Arms...

In 1846, Queen Victoria said " It's a beautiful spot...red cliffs and rocks with wooded hills like Italy and reminding one of a ballet or play where nymphs appear - such rocks and grottoes, with the deepest sea on which there was no ripple." 

Created by the de Savary's in 2009. Awarded 5 star inn by Visit Britain.

Luxury Devon Hotel Rooms

Absolute comfort and contemporary seaside chic. Sea facing, en-suite rooms with a fresh and light barefoot beach ambience. Italian bed linen, bespoke fabrics and all the ele¬ments expected of a boutique bolt hole. Sunbathe on a private terrace overhanging the crystal waters then dine al fresco in the terraced gardens that tumble down to the beach.

With plenty of coastal character and echoes of New England, international designer Kathleen Fraser has captured the flavour of effortless seaside living. Traditional striped ticking whispers memories of days by the seashore and elegant furniture, spacious bathrooms filled with White Company goodies give a taste of the detail and comfort you can expect. You really can’t imagine the sunrises until you get here. Never more than a window away from a fabulous view of the bay, a few days here, even just a night, and you’ll feel good all over.

Each of the 8 rooms provides guests with luxury accommodation, crisp bed linen and magnificent views, and most rooms have a terrace or balcony.  A turndown service is offered every evening.

The young are welcomed with their very own Cary Arms fishing net, bucket and spades, for days to be spent hitting the rock pools and surrounding waters. Our dog friendly rooms come equipped with a dog  bed and bowl.

The Bar

Beamed ceilings, original stone walls, planked floors, and great seaviews overlooking Babbacombe Bay and the Jurassic coastline. Sympathetic to its proud heritage, the welcoming interior combines clean lines with a neutral coastal palette. Bracing sea air, grown up adventures, fishing from the pier, your appetite will sharpen itself. Inside, big windows show off views across the bay. Portland Bill, fifty miles away, is visible on clear days. A crackling log fire and the lure of a proper pint make it feel special and secluded here. Otter Ale and Bays are just two of the highlights. Unpretentious friendly service sets the tone. Sit and watch the sun sink.

A South Devon Restaurant with Coastal Chic

Gastro pub food cooked simply on the south Devon coast. The watchwords in the kitchen are fresh¬ness and seasonality, underpinned by a deep rooted respect for the sur¬rounding waters and pastures. Our restaurants specials change daily reflecting Devon coast and Devon country in equal measure. Expect superb Devon beef, Lyme Bay lobster and line caught seafood. Food to rival the very best restaurants in south Devon.

Hungry walkers, families, friends and travelling food¬ies - this is a place where even a pint of prawns is done with panache. Dine outdoors in the warmer months and watch south Devon life in the bay unfold. In cooler weather, choose something comforting and slowly cooked from the daily changing blackboard.
