Cary Arms Torquay (South Devon)

“A boutique hotel with the charm of a British pub. The cliff top position makes for stunning views. Chic white washed rooms mix traditional features with modern simplicity. Hearty gastro-pub styled food is served at the restaurant. A glorious spa. An excellent choice for a family holiday.”

“Romance, adventure and seaside fun are all embodied at the delightful Cary Arms, 150 years old but brilliantly updated by Peter and Lana de Savary in 2009. You’ll find stylish bedrooms plus three self-catering cottages; a stone walled, slate floored bar; terraces cascading to the water, excellent gastropub food with outdoor barbecue and pizza oven, a Captain’s Table on a promontory, even a transparent pod for all-weather outdoor dining and a clipper for outings afloat. Superb location. Great stuff.”
