Gather treasure in the boutiques of Salcombe and then take a lazy stroll to the water’s edge so the dog can have a splash. Enjoy the fizz of freshwater against your skin on a wild swim, then warm your cockles in front of the fire in a country pub. There’s a reason Devonshire cream teas are an old favourite, and you can rediscover it every day of your trip if you like (you are on holiday after all). Come eat, drink and dream away with us on a trip that’s good for the soul.
Is it possible to spoil yourself too much?
We don’t think so.
But a short break at Gara Rock does push the boundaries - rooms furnished to impeccable standards command sweeping ocean views, oysters and other delectable treats await in the restaurant, and the spa is there to soothe and relax you.
Rugged beauty of south devon
Traversing the length of the Southwest peninsula, the 630 miles South West Coast Path is one of the longest walking routes in the world and perhaps one of the most beautiful. Gara Rock is located just yards from the path and this destination is popular with hikers, dog walkers and families heading down to the beach at the foot of the cliffs.
