Easy-going and down to earth, Gara Rock is proper South Devon. A place for families, couples, good friends and great memories. Dogs are very welcome. Come for lunch, dinner, the day. Stay for the sunset, the week or for as long as you please. When the sun shines, the beach is right there. Just past the pool. When it rains, and it does occasionally, there are games to play and films to watch. Maybe a little treat in the spa. We don’t do formalities, dress codes or awkward silences at Gara. In fact, there’s really only one rule: Make yourself at home.

- Enjoy a bite to eat in our acclaimed restaurant

- Our lounge bar is ideal for those taking on the South West Coast Path or those who simply want to enjoy a drink with a view

- Stay the night in our Suites, Apartments or Out Of The Ordinary accommodation.

- Chill out in our Cinema room

- Celebrate with us from birthday, special occasions and bespoke weddings
