If you’ve got a good head for heights, Babbacombe Cliff Railway – operating since 1926 – is a great way to get down the cliff to Oddicombe Beach below. Further along the coast you’ll find Babbacombe Beach, where you can often spot dolphins and seals playing offshore.
Surrounded by some of the most breathtaking scenery to be found in the UK, the Cliff Railway provides a vital and non-exhausting way for locals and holiday makers alike to soak up the peaceful atmosphere and take in the amazing views as they travel to and from the waters edge.
This is also one of the South West’s leading diver training centres where you can take your PADI open water certificate (Divers Down is a good place to hire equipment and organise courses.)
Babbacombe is everything that a great British seaside resort should be – with fabulous views, lots to do and tons of family-friendly accommodation.
Away from the beaches, Babbacombe Model Village is a must-see attraction along with Babbacombe Model Village, for kids and grown-ups alike while Babbacombe Theatre on the cliff top has variety shows and comedy all year round.
Combine this with restaurants, bars and nightlife on the beautiful downs overlooking Babbacombe Bay.
St. Marychurch just a short walk from Babbacombe has its own thriving shopping precinct with a wide choice of independently owned small shops and boutiques.
We stayed just one night for a show and would definitely return. The room was lovely and clean and the best breakfast, thank you, Scott. The host we're great, nothing was too much trouble, they even gave us a lift to the theatre because of the rain. A lovely comfortable bar. You deserve to do well. Once agan, thank you.
This was the best full English breakfast I have had! It was perfection, beautifully presented, hot and cooked with care exactly to my liking. Coffee is very good and gluten free bread supplied on request at booking. Really really good.
Gorgeous little hotel! Room was immaculately clean....very quiet...Great night's sleep 😴. ... yummy breakfast too. Plus, the owners are very warm and welcoming 🙏
Spent 3 nights here, very clean and tidy. Excellent hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Yummy breakfast. Nice restaurants nearby overlooking the sea. Will definitely be back.
Great Weekend Away Recently had a great 2 night's stay, Scott and Lynne are great hosts and made us feel very welcome. Rooms were clean and comfortable, good choice of food for breakfast. Highly recommend and we will be making a return visit.
