The West Country region

Torbay and the Red Cliffs: Napoleon declared Torquay “beau” when he saw it from the sea (true, he was a prisoner and there wasn't much of it then), and certainly it could be in the south of France when, in the sunshine, you look down from most of its seven hills on the expensive boats in its harbour/marina, windsurfers and water-skiers skimming its bay, and palm trees, very well-kept public lawns and flower beds and posh-looking hotels lining its seafront behind a sandy beach. People play bowls in white clothes. The exotic impression fades in its streets, but name a likely resort facility, sport or amusement and you can bet Torquay will have it, as well as some fine houses on its hills.

The three towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham surround a very beautiful bay and make up the West Country's largest resort. Paignton, less glamorous-looking than Torquay, has red cliffs and sand and an excellent zoo. Brixham is the fishing port, with still attractive harbour and tiers of coloured houses around it. There are several sandy beaches, and boat trips across the bay and round Berry Head (lighthouse) to Dartmouth.

North of Torquay is a mainly cliff-coast to the boat-filled mouth of the long, broad river Teign estuary (Teignmouth). Above Teignmouth, its good golf course has wonderful views both inland to Dartmoor and out to sea. The best route to Exeter and places east is via it and the A380 – not the coast road which is mainly ribbon-developed, slow and dull. The most beautiful route of all is by the mainline railway (Brunel designed) which for much of the way between Newton Abbot and Exeter hugs the shore.

Dartmouth

Kingswear: village (shops, pubs) at the mouth of the river Dart immediately across the river from Dartmouth (old town). Car and passenger ferry joins them. Excellent base for boating of all sorts. Torbay and Brixham, 4½ miles; sandy beaches and good golf course there; nearer, fine cliff and woodland walks past pretty coves. Private steam railway, via the riverside, to Paignton (resort town).
