About Us

The Riviera Reborn - The Best of Devon

A Boutique Hotel, Excuding Charm

The Inn on the Beach - exuding charm, fun and all the values of a good English inn with the style and comfort of a boutique hotel. Great seaside gastro-pub dining, family friendly (including the dogs) complemented by chic rooms and cute cottages.

Sitting in the sheltered and sunny spot of Babbacombe Bay on the south Devon coast, the outstanding setting and views are breathtakingly beautiful, 365 days of the year. Hearty breakfasts, long lunches and lazy suppers; it's about delicious food made with fresh, local ingredients, simply and creatively cooked according to the season.

Spend your days with a restorative massage or Yon-Ka spa treatment, a picnic down on the beach or take a table on the terrace for lunch. If you're lucky and book early you might bag the prized Captains Table.

Come stay and see for yourself. What Rock is to Cornwall, Babbacombe is to Devon, only more laid back.

"One of the fifty best beach bars in the world " chosen by CNN
