The beach

Discover a secret cove

Grab a pair of sturdy shoes or sandals and brace the elements as you head down the hill from Gara Rock to the hidden cove below. Walking along the Southwest Coast Path, you will happen upon a winding path down to the beach on your right.

When you've traversed the rocks at the bottom of the beach path, you'll arrive on the sands of Gara Rock beach. You're so far from the tourist traps of East Devon that you may find yourself alone to soak up these glorious surroundings in complete tranquility. Chase the lapping waves along the shoreline.

At low tide, a second cove becomes accessible from the first; a long stretch of sand that's perfect for sunbathing and exercising the dog (or the kids!).

The Garavan

You'll find our Garavan just a few steps from the South West Coast Path. So, if you're enjoying the outdoors, pop along and get yourself a pasty, sandwich, cold drink, coffee, tea, ice cream or confectionery.

There's picnic tables for you to sit down and tuck into your tasty snack. 

Open from 11am to 4pm (seasonal).

a truly magnificient place

We shot down to Gara Rock for a relaxing weekend before the madness of Christmas, left the teenagers at home but took the dog with us! Stayed in a pet friendly junior suite, which was so spacious with its stylishly decor we relaxed immediately. Staff were amazingly attentive, food was superb, breakfast perfect! Great walk through the woods and across Mill Bay to the ferry across to Salcombe, spoit by great weather which helps, and a good stomp back around the coastal path to walk off the tea and cake, can't recommend enough and your 4-legged friend is welcome everywhere
