About the neighbourhood
Halcyon Day with balmy summer days spent on the beach to bracing winter walks between Hope Cove and Salcombe, the seasons, the sea and the scenery will never fail to inspire you. For family holidays with reassuringly traditional seaside fun there is no better place to enjoy. With streams to dam, rock pools to explore, castles to build, rounders to be played and sand to laze on as you truly relax. For the explorers in you, we have caves so dark that even grown ups will chicken out and great dog walks along the coastpath. There are 3 golf courses nearby some with preferential rates for our guests, sailing opportunities for all abilities, clay pigeon shooting, rifle range and outdoor adventure courses. At Soar Mill Cove Hotel The Ocean Spa off
Getting around
A car is neccesary to fully enjoy a holiday at West Soar, however direct train services from Paddington to Totnes in under 3 hours, which is probably the most beautiful train line to enjoy along with an outstanding restaurant car on its lunch and evening services London City to Exeter air service via FLyBe West as well as transatlantic services from Bristol with Air Lingus A reliable and local car hire provider mean that holiday makers from worldwide destinations are very welcome. Just ask for more details.
