For three generations the Makepeace family have been encouraging family escapes and glorious getaways to their secret spot on the Devon coast.  Located in a rolling valley, just a short walk from its own beach and the winding South West Coast Path, Soar Mill Cove welcomes guests of all ages, from the smallest, oldest to youngest– and even your four-legged friend.

Soar Mill Cove is tucked into the rolling landscape and National Trust land, overlooking shimmering seas across their private beach. This special, secret spot is a stone's throw from the thriving town of Salcombe but encapsulated in undulating ruffles of sweet smelling gorse heather and emerald patchwork of grassland, Soar Mill Cove is an idyllic escape and breathe of fresh air.  

The hotel is a home away from home for all generations – from babes in arms through to grandparents, with every aspect thoughtfully designed to work perfectly for guests old and young. From flexible room layouts for those with families (including self-catering options), to the new 'Discovery Spa' for those needed to be soothed and recharged – Soar Mill aims to ensure every guest leaves with wonderful memories of their time in the cove and a fresh sea glow.

The award-winning restaurant and new café at Soar Mill offers a seasonal and locally sourced menu, full of locally caught seafood and fresh Cornish delights. Chef Ian MacDonald is particularly renowned for his delicious pastries and treats, and the newly opened Castaways Café is ideal for younger guests to kick back and relax. Of course, no visit to Devon would be complete without a Cream Tea, with lashings of locally made Clotted Cream…

 Accommodation is spread across several options – all with beautiful views across the rolling hills or down to the cove. Flexible rooms are ideal for families, whilst those looking for a little privacy can stay in one of the self-catering retreats, enjoying all the facilities of the hotels whilst escaping to their own private idyll.

 For those keen to explore the great outdoors, the SW Coastal Path runs next to the hotel, and is ideal for a coastal adventure. The Soar Mill crew are on hand to help with things to do, sharing their local knowledge and a complete love of The South Hams. They know those secret picnic spots, they know the best place to savour a fresher than fresh crab sandwich and which rock pools are the most fruitful for an inquisitive little one.  The team can also recommend the perfect sun downer for those watching the sun set in the Bolly Bar, and after a long day of fresh sea air guests relax in their luxurious rooms, to dream of adventures in the Cove…
