Babbacombe is a village within the town of Torquay which is a resort in itself often referred to as the 'Jewel in Torquay's crown' famous for its cliff top promenade which enjoys stunning views across Lyme Bay.Babbacombe Downs is a long stretch of common land with the highest promenade in the country and sweeping wooded cliffs to the beaches of Oddicombe and Babbacombe below.

We can accommodate families in our 5 family rooms with reduced rates for children under 12. We are also dog friendly with a number of our rooms allocated for our four legged friends.During the summer months the forecourt café provides an excellent area to relax and enjoy a light lunch traditional cream tea or refreshing beer with the kiosk serving local ice cream.

Just a stone's throw from Babbacombe is the pretty town centre of St Marychurch - which appears in the Doomsday book. Its pleasant pedestrianised precinct has a fine selection of shops and cafés.
