The house was AMAZING! We were all really impressed and so enjoyed hanging out in the house. After a day trip to one of the many places to visit, we arrived 'home' and the kids swam and swam, whilst the adults cooked and played snooker. Who could ask for more? Angie the housekeeper was so friendly and helpful. A really wonderful holiday – thank you!

From its picturesque setting, guests are within easy reach of the pretty chalky beach below known as Breakwater Beach and also the charming shops, tearooms and impressive fish market which front the pretty seaside harbour town of Brixham. Berry Head to Sharkham Point, a National Nature Reserve, is a haven for wildlife. Berry Head is also the site for the remains of an Iron Age hill fort. The former artillery house now houses a public display.

The vibrant seaside town of Torquay with its wide selection of restaurants, bars, shopping arcades and lively nightlife is just over a 25 minutes’ drive away and picturesque Paignton with its family-friendly Zoo and fine golf courses is just under a 15 minutes’ drive away.

For those wanting to enjoy a full breadth of outdoor activities, the Dartmoor National Park and 41 National Trust homes & gardens to visit, are all within easy reach by car.

Visitors to Devon arrive through a combination of road, rail, sea and air. Brixham is highly accessible by car being close to the M5 & A380.

The Paignton, Torquay & Newton Abbot mainline train stations are very close by and the close proximity of Exeter airport makes it more or less effortless to arrive and be sure of a fabulous and ever memorable Devon stay!

The English Riviera!

Confused? Are you visiting Torquay, Paignton or Brixham, Torbay or the English Riviera?

The individual towns are clear. Brixham, furthest South, a fishing port, Paignton at the centre of the three and known for its great beaches and Torquay, the largest and best known protected by Thatcher, the Orestone and Shag Rock from the East and Lyme Bay.

Torbay is recognised as natural harbour and was made a unitary authority on 1 April 1998. The local tourism authorities call it the 'English Riviera' and align it with its French counterparts, on account of its beaches and mild climate.

Why and what is the English Riviera? Its location is actually Torbay, which is the combination of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham. 2 miles of coastline, a UNESCO-recognised Global Geopark and replete with coves, beaches, walks, spectacular views and many things for locals and visitors to do. With rapid regeneration, restaurants, shopping, trips, great local towns such as Dartmouth then the English Riviera is a great place to be!

The first three. Its Mediterranean feel and attractions added to the position recognising the marine aviary, Kents Cavern and Agatha Christie. The other top rated attractions were Bygones, Babbacombe Theatre and the pleasure Cruises.

So whether its Torquay, Paignton or Brixham its all the Engish Riviera. Move in a little and its a great base to visit Dartmoor, the South Hams and the great small villages and towns that abound in Devon.
