Minimoons are such a popular way to relax and unwind for a precious few days after your wedding. And what better place to head for and begin married life than in a luxury private beach hut nestled into the beautiful Babbacombe Bay on the English Riviera?
The English Riviera – Home to Girl Gets Wed
Before we go any further, we must declare a vested interest in this part of the country as South Devon is our patch and home to Girl Gets Wed HQ!
Our coastline really is stunning and we’re more than delighted to share it with you and do have a glance through the gallery at the bottom of the post for some of our favourite images of Babbacombe Bay, all taken by us on one of our many trips, well when it’s just down the road, you just have to dive in and enjoy!
Beautiful Babbacombe Bay
Set beneath the cliffs on the beach at Babbacombe the Cary Arms’ location is nothing short of spectacular. Needless to say that in such an outstanding setting the views are breathtakingly beautiful, 365 days of the year.
The pebbly Babbacombe beach lies directly beneath the Cary Arms, with the sandy Oddicombe beach just a short meander around the bay. Watersports abound here, so when all that relaxation gets too much, just hire a paddle board or two for some invigorating fun on the water.
The Cary Arms
The Cary Arms is as near to a picture perfect Inn on the beach as you’re likely to find anywhere on your travels, exuding charm, seaside fun and all the values of a traditional English inn combined with the style and comfort of a boutique hotel.
In addition to the new beach huts, there’s gastro-pub dining, ten bedrooms and three self-catering cottages, all delightfully designed with an equal measure of comfort and chic treats to make you smile including sticks of rock on snowy white pillows, and walls adorned with vintage posters advertising the delights of Devon and colourful yachting photographs.
The Luxury Beach Huts
Whilst a room at the Inn or a cottage would make an ideal minimoon retreat, it’s the brand new beach huts that we’ve absolutely fallen in love with and we think they’d make the perfect lovenest.
These beach huts may rock the retro vibe on the outside, all blue and white and super nautical, but inside, it’s state of the art all the way.
There are six beach huts in total, all full on sea facing and offering floor-to-ceiling views of the Jurassic coastline. The huts have no shortage of technology, with remote-control fires, motion-sensor bathroom lighting, non-mist mirrors and Sonos digital music systems.
Step out onto your private terrace, just a few feet from the crystal clear waters of the bay, with views that stretch for miles. What a fabulous spot to chill out.
In –house Spa
And to complete the ultimate pampering break there’s a new spa has a state-of-the-art hydrotherapy pool, aromatherapy and phototherapy shower, as well as steam rooms, a sauna and gym.
Two ‘Thalgo’ treatment rooms offer marine-based facials, massages and all-over body treatments.
