Discover the stunning English Riviera, home to the popular resort towns of Torquay, Paignton, and Brixham, boasting a renowned microclimate and a sheltered Bay that's perfect for outdoor sports and leisure activities.
Torquay, a traditional and thriving seaside town located in the heart of the English Riviera, is the top trending holiday destination in 2021. Adorned with iconic palm trees, a bustling harbor, an international marina, a sandy beach, and an array of continental-style cafes, restaurants, and cocktail bars, it's the perfect place for a seaside holiday or a short break.
With popular tourist destinations like Torre Abbey House, Gardens and Park, English Riviera Wheel, Riviera International Centre, Abbey Sands, the Agatha Christie Mile, and Torquay Harbor with its boat cruises just a stone's throw away from the guest house, there's never a shortage of entertainment within walking distance.
Take a boat trip from the pier to Brixham, a working fish port with many delicious fish restaurants, or further afield to Agatha Christie's famous former home Greenways, to soak up the atmosphere created by one of Torquay's most famous residents. For theatre enthusiasts, catch a West End-style production at the freshly renovated Princess Theatre or a spectacular 'End of the Pier' type show at the Babbacombe Theatre. The Little Theatre offers regular high-quality amateur productions.
For those willing to venture a little further afield, Berry Head, where wild dolphins can be seen, Dartmoor National Park, Babbacombe, Kents Cavern, Goodrington Park, Dartmouth Steam Railway, or Cockington Country Park & Village are just a short drive away. Brixham, Totnes, Sidmouth, Teignmouth, The River Dart, and the cathedral city of Exeter are all within 30 minutes' drive of the guest house.
If you're willing to travel a little further, cities like Exeter with its famous Cathedral, Plymouth with its well-known Barbican area, or Dartmouth with its Royal Navy history are all less than an hour away by car. With fine dining and beautiful scenery, they're perfect for a whole day out.
