Soar Mill Cove in Devon has been crowned the winner of Best Beach/Coastal Hotel in the prestigious Luxury Lifestyle Magazine Readers’ Travel Awards 2018.
The awards, run by Luxury Lifestyle Magazine in partnership with Salcombe Gin, saw thousands of readers clamouring to nominate their picks of some of the industry’s most astonishing travel destinations and show-stopping hotels, across a variety of travel related categories. Designed to reward the travel industry elite for excellence in a number of categories, winners were selected by an expert panel of judges according to a strict set of criteria.
For three generations the Makepeace family have been encouraging family escapes and glorious getaways to their secret spot on the Devon coast. Located in a rolling valley, just a short walk from its own beach and the winding South West Coast Path, Soar Mill Cove welcomes guests of all ages, from the smallest, oldest to youngest. The award-winning restaurant and café at Soar Mill offers a seasonal and locally sourced menu, full of locally caught seafood and fresh Devon delights. Chef Ian MacDonald is particularly renowned for his delicious puddings and treats, and the walkers café is ideal for younger guests.
Luxury Lifestyle Magazine editor, Nick Gilmartin, says that competition was fierce – and that winners should be incredibly proud of their achievements. “Our readers’ travel awards celebrate the very finest in luxury travel. We’ve seen some truly fantastic nominees this year and we congratulate all the winners on their success…I was particularly pleased to see a number of family run hotels secure award wins, especially Soar Mill Cove ...as it shows you don’t have to be a billion-dollar travel company to offer your customers a luxury and personalised service.”
Keith Makepeace, owner of Soar Mill Cove, said “We are hugely honoured to have been bestowed this wonderful award, and we are very proud of fabulous teams at Soar Mill Cove, who really make the hotel so special, and without whom none of this would be possible.”
