Perched on a clifftop surrounded by lush countryside, stunning sea views, maybe a sheep or two and nothing else... say hello to your coastal retreat in rural Devon across from Salcombe.

Easy-going and down to earth, Gara Rock is a place for families, couples, good friends and great memories. Dogs are very welcome.

Come for lunch or dinner, the day, a well-earned break. Stay for the sunset, the week or for as long as you please.

When the sun shines, the beach is right there. Just below 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 Rock.
In fact, there’s really only one rule: Make yourself at home.
