About Thurlestone Hotel

Owned and run by the Grose family since 1896, Thurlestone is more than a family concern, it's a family passion, with every generation adding to the special identity and amenities that keep the hotel in a class of its own. Traditional values combine seamlessly with the latest facilities to create a luxurious classic country hotel in a delightful coastal setting.

Surrounded by sub-tropical gardens, the hotel is just a short walk from a beautiful 'Blue Flag' sandy beach overlooking the picturesque 'thirled stone' rock, which gives the area its name. This stunning vista is also a feature of the luxurious Sea View rooms, some of which have their own large balconies.

The delightful National Trust coastline offers scenic cliff walks and, for boating enthusiasts, Salcombe is only a short distance away. In addition, the hotel has its own extensive indoor and outdoor facilities, including a 9-hole golf course.

Its AA rosetted restaurant, with picture windows and stunning views, offers a contemporary slant on traditional Devon fare, using fresh local produce. Lighter meals are available in the Terrace Bar, by the pool in the al fresco Rock Pool, or in the Village Inn, a 16th century pub owned by the hotel.
