Gara Rock Hotel : Hotel With A View in Devon
Gara Rock Hotel is Devon’s zestful answer for your coastal getaway in the UK. Perched on a clifftop above a beautiful beach and most beautiful coastal scenery between Salcombe and Dartmouth in South Devon, Gara Rock Hotel offers a perfect brew of countryside’s essence and luxury.
Take in a breath of fresh air and views of an unending ocean on Devon’s coast surrounded by countryside at this luxury hotel with a sea view in Devon. Offering an ideal ‘off the grid’ escape from hustle of day to day life.
As you arrive at Gara Rock, it may seem like a secluded location, yet there is a feeling of pristine belonging. The appeal of Gara Rock hotel not only lies in the stunning sea views but also it’s remote location. Devoid of mobile signal, the vibe is here is more about being present in the moment with board games in the comfy lounge, heading out to the beach, long coastal walks or exploring Salcombe’s colourful harbour.
Built on the footprint of old coastguard cottages, the Gara Rock now offers deep-seated comfort of an unexplored valley with chic earthy tone interiors. Think reclaimed wooden walls, wood burners, vintage phones, huge beds with geometric-patterned quilts, armchairs with Rajasthani print. Listen to the waves crashing from your own balcony, watch the sunset with a drink in your hand. Wind down for night in the ‘Sunset View Room’ or get cosy in an apartment or go all out with the one of the ‘Out of the Ordinary Suites’.
Our favorite is the ‘The Penthouse’ wake up to the stunning coastal view each morning From the master bedroom’s floor to ceiling windows showing off the rugged sea view and freestanding roll top bath to the spacious living and entertaining area on the top floor. With open plan living area and additional 2 bedrooms. Once you stay in this suite you won’t want to leave.
