West Soar is situated in the South Hams area of South Devon. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty, with glorious beaches and coast and plenty of unspoilt countryside.
Nearby are the harbour towns of Dartmouth and Salcombe. Salcombe, the nearest town to Soar Mill Cove, is a popular resort for fishing, shopping, some great places to eat out as well as the lovely beaches.
Dartmouth, founded by the Normans, has long been used for trading, mainly due to it being a deepwater port. Now it is a popular sailing resort, as well as having a small fishing fleet.
Totnes is located further upstream on the River Dart, on the West bank. Historically Totnes was an inland port that exported cloth around the world. Some architecture from its heyday remains and there is still a small working port down on the river.
From 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 reasuringly traditional seadside fun there is no better palce 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, sailing opportunities for all abilities, horse riding, clay pigeon shooting and outdoor adventure courses.
At Soar Mill Cove Hotel The Ocean Spa Treatment Suite offers a full range of beauty treatments and holistic services as well as massage and pampering. This is available exclusively to their hotel guests and guests of West Soar.
We have 4 golf courses within a half hour drive, 2 very near Thurlestone 18 hole and Bigbury 18 hole both with beautiful sea views and then Dartmouth with both 18 hole and 9 hole as well as Thurlestone Hotel 9 hole course.
