Review by Katharina from Germany: Lovely cottage in a lovely village with a great view. Everything was just as described. We had a great holiday.
We felt very comfortable in the apartment, it was very cozy. Everything was fine. The view from the bedroom window of the harbour was great. Stoke Gabriel is a beautiful little place.
Other Activities and Attractions in the area:
Bike Rentals, Boat Rentals/Charters, Canoeing/Kayaking, National Trust Properties, Nature Reserve, Paddle Boarding, Restaurants & Bars and Rowing Boats.
The village of Stoke Gabriel is in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is a perfect location for exploring the South Hams with beautiful sandy beaches, cliff top walks or the busier Torbay English Riviera, with plenty to do for the whole family.
A main attraction in the village is the Quay on the mill pond, where though-out the summer, children catch crabs with hand lines for hours on end; culminating in the annual Crabbing Competition. Cream Tea’s, Ice Creams, light meals & a glass of wine can all be enjoyed the from the Crab Shack Café directly on the Quayside.
Totnes Kayak Academy & Canoe Hire of the River Dart, Stoke Gabriel:
If you're down on holiday there is no better way to see the beauty of River Dart is to hire a kayak or canoe and take a relaxing paddle down the river & tributaries passing the towns & villages of Tuckenhay, Dittisham & Dartmouth, to name a few!
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 a 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 English Riviera. Move inland a little and its a great base to visit Dartmoor, the South Hams and the great small villages and towns that abound in Devon.
