Recommended place to stay: The Cary Arms
The Cary Arms says
Our ‘Inn on the Beach’ at Babbacombe is the ultimate romantic hideaway to enjoy a chic beach-side honeymoon. You will be entranced by the stunning views of Babbacombe Bay and the coastline through every window and the fresh and relaxing barefoot beach ambience.
Spacious, sea-facing rooms offer laid back comfort mixed with contemporary coastal style. Think luxurious Italian bed linen, bespoke fabrics and all the elements expected of a boutique bolthole recreated with a twist. The bathrooms are stylish too, packed with Elemis goodies.
Opened in summer 2016, our fabulous duplex beach huts and beach suites have brought a whole new level of seaside cool. Chic design and open vistas of the ocean from vast private sundecks await.
Our brand new glass-fronted Cary Spa boasts incredible coastal views with a range of treatments using the leading marine-themed Thalgo brand. An innovative mood-enhancing aromatherapy light shower, hydrotherapy pool, sauna, steam room and a gymnasium are also available. There’s even an exclusive exhibition of American Art illustrations, from Peter de Savary’s private collection. Use of the spa costs £25 per day – access is included with any Thalgo beauty treatment.
Dining 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 enjoy the indoor fireside ambience.
Sunbathe on a private terrace overhanging the crystal waters and rocks. Take a boat ride to your own secluded bay for a delectable picnic. Try your hand at paddle boarding or scuba diving right on the doorstep. Capture the sunset on a rugged cliff top walk or enjoy a leisurely stroll along the beach.
Offering a totally unique dining experience, the glass sphere Pod, with a backdrop purely of sea and far reaching Lyme Bay coastal views, should not be missed on the perfect starry evening or even your wedding vows.
