For the family

Family hotel Devon

Soar Mill Cove is the family hotel Devon nestles on the coast. Total family togetherness awaits you at the Cove in Salcombe, Devon. You’ll notice the welcoming atmosphere from the moment you arrive at our family run Devon spa hotel. It’s something we, the Makepeace family, pride ourselves on and have been passionate about for three generations. Together we’ll help you all have the perfect short break or family holiday on sunny days, rainy days and whatever-the-season days. 


Spring-fed and heated to a balmy 86º, our exclusive saltwater swimming pool is a true oasis of pleasure whatever your age. Its silky waters are also so gentle on your skin. Come and dive in.


Feeling energetic? We’ve our own lawn tennis court and special children’s play area. Or how about a challenging family game of table tennis and snooker? That’s if you can tear yourselves away from the lure of the cove, the magical coastal walks and experiences for family adventures.


Take the family crabbing at the cove, a very short walk from our South Devon Hotel . All you need is a crab line – we’ll provide the bait because those crabs just love our bacon!


Being one of the most prestigious and ideally situated hotels in south Devon we are surrounded by the coast. Throughout the year there are very visible swells that excite the adventurous. Fancy surfing those waves? As our guests, you get 10% discounted surf lessons at Discovery Surf School. There are classes for everyone from the age of five upwards.


Soar Mill Cove is surround by mile after wonderful mile of National Trust countryside. You can even walk from the hotel to Sharpitor and Overbeck’s Edwardian house at where your small ones can hunt for even smaller creepy crawlies in the amazing grounds.


Being one of the best networked hotels in south Devon we love to interact with our neighbouring businesses. The local area offers three golf courses, sailing opportunities for all abilities, clay pigeon shooting and outdoor adventure courses. What will you do first?


Rain doesn’t stop play at Soar Mill Cove. We’ve a free DVD library with films for all ages, loads of books, magazines and favourite games. Why not take advantage of our indoor swimming pool or a relaxing treatment in our Discovery Spa?
