Guestbook comments from the manager

Had a wonderful week at Ben's Place - beautiful view of the bay from the garden (and hot tub! and hammock!) and the kids enjoyed having Sky TV for the week.



The accommodation was very stylish and comfortable and the owners friendly and helpful. The only reason I haven't given five stars is the lack of space for storing food (not a problem if you eat out all the time!) and we could have done with a washing machine for rinsing our beach things. Apart from that, perfect!

Golf:

There are several Golf Clubs in the area, the nearest one being Torquay Golf Club - Petitor Road, St Marychurch,Torquay, Devon TQ1 4QF Telephone: (01803) 314 591

Torquay Golf Club is an extremely popular venue for visitors and societies alike - due to the excellent service and friendly welcome provided. It is a delightful parkland course with stunning views over Lyme Bay to the east and Dartmoor to the west.

Torquay makes a great short break for Golfers in both summer and winter. When many other courses are snowbound or unplayable the clement Torbay weather ensures that a full 18 holes can be completed!

Torbay:

Local attractions include the ‘Living Coasts’ sea life centre, Paignton Zoo, the other nearby picturesque seaside resort towns including Dartmouth and also the opportunity to enjoy exploring one of the 19 beaches on offer along the Torquay coast!

Here are 22 miles of coastline, cliffs, coves and beaches and walks to rival any in the South West of England, with a climate that belongs somewhere much further south. There are opportunities for surfing, safe swimming, diving, sailing, angling and wonderful opportunities to study the natural wildlife at your leisure

Stunning views are to be seen just about every where across the Bay, out over the English Channel , along the 40 miles of Lyme Bay to Portland Bill or inland towards the Tors of Dartmoor. Torquay is an ideal base from which to visit Dartmouth , Totnes, Exeter and Plymouth , all of which are only a few miles distant.

Torquay is a place to relax, to soak up the atmosphere, to take in the scenery, the parks and the gardens and to enjoy the experience of a holiday in a classical English seaside resort, at all times of the year.

Sporting opportunities abound and there is a complete range of accommodation to suit every taste and budget. A rich variety of evening entertainment is provided throughout the Bay, all year round.

Torquay's waterfront is the focus of life in the town. Here you'll find the palm-lined promenade, seafront gardens, a lively harbour and an international marina. The new Living Coasts attraction adds to the variety of the new waterfront and the illuminated bridge is a great backdrop to a relaxing evening drink. Yet within minutes of the town centre there are beautiful beaches easily accessible by foot, road or sea.

There is an abundance of pavement cafes, pubs, restaurants and nightlife, good quality shops and a host of attractions to suit every interest. Torquay.com has created this site with the visitor in mind. We are also proud to be able to offer the Riviera Pass Card helping you to make the most of your stay and your budget! If you would like to make any suggestions as to how we can improve upon the delivery of information or the site please email us.

Several of our beaches hold coveted awards for cleanliness and water quality. Torbay is a naturally sheltered bay, creating a safe haven for ships of all shapes and sizes in stormy weather. Occasional easterly winds create our own winter storms however and this is when beachcombers make there best finds.

Stretching from the South side of Brixham to Maidencombe, the coast path around the Bay offers excellent and varied walking, with circular walks or point-to-point, with spectacular sea views and an exotic range of flora and fauna.
