The West Country region

The English Riviera - The perfect choice:

The English Riviera is a resort in the truest sense of the word, attracting visitors of all ages and interests throughout the year. Undergoing a water front regeneration and a number of new attractions in Torquay and accommodation schemes, Torquay has something for everyone and for all ages, at all times of the year!

Torquay has been one of the UK 's top holiday destinations since Victorian Times when the gentry promenaded, bathing huts were wheeled down to the beaches and anyone who was anyone had an attractive villa overlooking the sea.

It was the Victorians who first used the English Riviera name to describe their favourite resort and their legacy remains to this day with sparkling white villas perched on the verdant hilltops, beautiful gardens around the seafront and elegant Victorian facades along the main streets.

Don't be fooled by the Victorian ancestry however, Torquay is also a vibrant and forward thinking resort attracting visitors of all interests, from Art and Culture afficionados to marine enthusiasts.

Torquay's famous seven hills provide the backdrop to a waterfront scene that matches anything you'll find on the French Riviera.

Stunning panoramic views along 22 miles of coastline:

There 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 Torbay, out over the English Channel , along the 40 miles of Lyme Bay to Portland Bill or inland towards the Ten Tors Dartmoor. Torquay is an ideal base from which to visit Dartmouth , Totnes, Exeter and Plymouth , all of which are only a few miles distant.

The West Country / Devon:

South Devon has a coastline of spectacular rugged cliffs and headlands, interspersed with lower-lying areas, sandy beaches and the five distinctive river estuaries of the Dart, Avon, Yealm, Erme and Salcombe.

The coastal scenery also includes reed beds, sand dunes, shingle ridges, mud flats, salt marshes, and the freshwater lake of Slapton Ley National Nature Reserve. This variety provides habitat for a diverse range of wildlife. The South West Coast Path National Trail running along the whole stretch of heritage coast, provides access to spectacular scenery, long views across bays and the English Channel, interesting beaches, and a scattering of coastal villages & historic towns such as Salcombe & Dartmouth.

Dartmoor:

Dartmoor is known for its plethora of Bronze Age remains; stone circles, stone rows and burial chambers and its clapper bridges, it is also well known for mists and boggy areas, though stories of the latter are often much exaggerated.

Two Bridges - is a central location of Dartmoor National Park and is mostly the meeting point of walkers and bikers. This is a bridge that was of much historical importance for it was the only routine road running across Dartmoor. The bridge had a small settlement around it and was famous for its potato market.

You can also find a small quarry that is proof enough of little industrial activity around it. There is also a famous hotel close to the bridge that dates back to year 1794. This hotel has now grown up to become The Two Bridges hotel. The two bridge area is the focal point of many events and is very rich in terms of antiquities available, there are lots of antiques relating to the Bronze Age period.

The Garden House - is a very romantic place. If you are with your partner then I suggest you must visit the Garden House for sure. The remains of the building around it is from the medieval period. To put it in words of Alan Titchmarsh, "You got to be mad to miss it" and I am sure you will vouch by this statement once you have seen the place yourself.

It is a huge area, approximately ten acres and all of it landscaped into a beautiful garden. Amidst this charming garden you have a tea room where you can sit back and relax. They also sell plants, so it would be a romantic idea to buy a gift for your partner? Your partner will be totally charmed and will fall in love with you all over again.

Brixham:

Brixham ~ Famous for its Napoleonic connections:

Brixham is primarily a fishing port within Torbay and has a long and rich history. In the lee of Berry Head, famous for its Napoleonic connections, its lighthouse and magnificent limestone cliffs, Brixham remains a popular resort with a rich maritime history and plenty of activities for the young and old alike.

A Royal Estate:

Berry Head was a promontory fortress and hospital constructed in the Napoleonic period, but situated on much earlier settlers remains. These earthworks were probably of from the Early Iron Age. The Berry Head earthworks, pottery, and coins suggest a late Celtic trading settlement, persisting into Roman times.

Palaeolithic man, may also have resided in Brixham, with evidence of occupation in the "Windmill Cave". Brixham was originally a royal estate in Saxon times, pre-conquest (1066) and stretched as far as Kingswear and Galmpton. (It is thought that the name "Brixham" probably came from Brioc's village . Brioc was an old English personal name and ham is an ancient term for village.

Brixham Harbour a famous fishing port:

Brixham is more famous as a fishing port, still active and producing a good catches daily. Originally competing with Torquay and Paignton, it eventually dominated and remained the only active port. In the 1800's as many as 250 vessels fished out of Brixham, from large trawlers to inshore boats, employing over 1,500 people.

The fishing industry all but collapsed at the end of the second world war. The old harbour originally nestled in central lower part of the town, with natural protection, has been replaced and protected by the new harbour and eventual breakwater.

Sir Francis Drake & the Golden Hind:

Stroll in the opposite direction and you will see a replica of Drake's famous Golden Hind and farther around will be the Marina, leading onto Breakwater beach and the Breakwater itself. On a warm day, watch the seagulls glide up the breakwater on thermals enjoying themselves, or the fishermen lined up to catch a sea monster of their own.

Brixham is a true maritime town, with a rich heritage; it is surrounded by superb landscape and wooded cliffs reaching to the sea on one side and the steep cliffs of Berry Head to the other. Kingswear, Dartmouth , Churston and the South Hams are all very close and may be reached by a short drive. Alternatively the South West Coast path runs right through Brixham!

Golf:

Churston: Dartmouth Road, Churston Ferrers, Brixham TQ5 0LA

Churston Golf Club's biggest asset is the course itself. Not only is the 18 holes laid out and presented in a fashion that is always pleasing on the eye, Mother Nature has ensured that the sub strata of shillet and shale are perfect for golf course drainage. This excellent drainage allows for play 365 days a year and the warm climate means the surfaces of the greens are in tip top condition 12 months of the year unlike so many other courses.
