The Cary Arms & Spa exudes charm, fun and all the values of a good English inn with the style and comfort of a boutique hotel. Great seaside dining complemented by some luxury sea view rooms/suites, chic beach huts and characterful cottages which also include some dog-friendly accommodations. Sitting in the sheltered and sunny spot of Babbacombe Bay, the outstanding setting and views are breathtakingly beautiful. Hearty breakfasts, long lunches, lazy suppers; it's about delicious food made with fresh, local ingredients, simply and creatively cooked according to the season. Relax in the waterfall hydrotherapy pool and indulge in one of our Gaia treatments in the new Cary Spa. The “Inn on the Beach” is a must-visit place all year round
