We’re excited to reveal that our clifftop retreat has won three accolades in the 2022-23 Devon Tourism awards. We have been awarded gold for Wedding Venue of the Year, silver for Small Hotel of the Year and bronze for the Restaurant of the Year. The judges look for a truly memorable experience, and with our endless sea views, effortlessly stylish accommodation, and restaurant’s flavour of Devon, we can see the attraction! We may be small, but our countryside surroundings and panoramic sea views make a statement. 

It’s great that we’ve been recognised by our local tourism board as one of the best small hotels within this beautiful part of the UK, with a fantastic restaurant and beautiful setting for out of the ordinary weddings. It’s a strict process, which looks at everything from our top qualities and the recent improvements and developments we’ve made to our success last year. And there is even a visit by a mystery shopper judge, who came to check out or lovely spot on the clifftop for themselves.

Our rural Devon location overlooks the ocean, providing a stunning back drop for the most beautiful wedding day. Whether you want your day to be relaxed and intimate or traditional and formal, indoor or outdoor, we’ve got you covered. From exquisite civil ceremonies to beautiful outdoor blessings, Gara Rock has it all! Our exclusive use weddings mean your celebrations will be uninterrupted as you get Gara all to yourselves, soaking up the magic with your loved ones.

At Gara Rock, we encourage you to escape the real world. Our stunning accommodation is full of simplistic design, home comforts, laid back elegance and casual cosiness. Press pause and unwind in our Wild Rock Spa. Lose yourself in a film at our cinema room. Slip into the pool and have a few leisurely laps. Sink into the jacuzzi and admire the views. We're not far from the sunny seaside town of Salcombe, so there’s so much to explore when staying with us.

From the stunning floor to ceiling windows overlooking the waves, to the locally sourced seasonal dishes we serve up on our menu, it’s not hard to understand why we caught the judge's eye. We like to keep it local wherever we can from land and sea. You’re in for a treat when you sample South Devon’s finest cuisine and sip on a glass of something chilled.
