Escape to the new-look Gara Rock, opening this summer near Salcombe in South Devon. With sunset views to die for, unrivalled culinary experiences and superb spa facilities, it's set to be one of the finest boutique retreats on the UK coastline.  

Hugging unspoiled Devon coastline and located directly on the South West Coastal Path, Gara Rock's transformation is underway to create five new loft suite hotel rooms, six sea view apartments, a new restaurant, bar and a private cinema room in addition to the existing popular cottages and apartments.  

Guests will also enjoy the indoor and cliff-top, outdoor swimming pools, Jacuzzi, treatment rooms and easy access to the renowned beach at Gara Rock. 

As we prepare for our opening, come and visit The Lookout Hut, open everyday from 11am to 3pm serving coffee, tea, cakes and snacks.




Guests staying at Gara Rock will experience some of the finest views on any British coastline and be lucky enough to be just in the right spot to take in the breathtaking sunsets. Gara Rock is for city dwellers seeking fresh air, space and a special place to switch off, and for families searching for valuable time together.

Wonderfully romantic, the new loft rooms will feature private terraces overlooking meadows and the famous Bolt Head; roll top baths and wood-panelled walls.

The new apartments are perfect for those wanting a choice between self-catering and choosing from the extensive menu in the new restaurant and bar.

The existing cottages enable families to relax and take time out to experience a British holiday at its best.

Eat & Drink


The heart of Gara Rock will be the all-day dining options, offering visitors mouth-watering choices anytime. 


The Restaurant

This is the ultimate long-lunch hotspot in a world-class setting, popular with local residents and hotel guests. Diners will be treated to a season-led, great British menu created by Head Chef Lewis Glanvill, using finely-sourced produce from local farmers and fishermen, and the restaurant will be known for its unrivalled seafood offering. 

With al-fresco seating, wood-fired pizza ovens and outdoor fire pits, The Restaurant enables anyone dining to celebrate the rugged and wonderfully wild coastline all year round. 


The Lodge

Gara Rock will also be home to The Lodge, where visitors can warm up by the roaring fire and enjoy a light snack or a drink before lunch or dinner at The Restaurant. It will be a sought-after spot in the evening, also offering a private dining space or the option for exclusive special occasions or weddings. 


The Hut

Located in the field opposite Gara Rock, The Hut will offer walkers on the South West Coastal Path, and guests, wonderful views and an array of hearty English food, from the famous Gara pasty to the finest Devon ice cream, hot drinks and cold beers. An inspiring lunch stop. 


The Lookout

The Lookout will be the only bar in Salcombe that captures the breath-taking sunset as it dips into the horizon, and will become the 'Salombe Sundowner' hotspot. The Lookout will serve as an idyllic place for well-earned drinks for walkers, pre-dinner drinks or just a memorable spot to toast something special. 


Opening Times

The Lookout Hut is now open everyday from 11am to 3pm serving coffee, tea, cakes and snacks.

Gara Rock will open fully in summer 2018.
