About this location
The English Riviera region
South Devon is a popular holiday destination, boasting some of the highest temperatures during the summer months in England. Paignton is part of an area encompassing Torquay and Brixham - a beautiful unspoilt fishing harbour town, commonly known as the English Rivera. Oldway Mansion in the heart of Paignton was once the home of the Singer family, founders of the famous Sewing Machine. Agatha Christie was born and bred in Torquay, The Princess Theatre on the sea front often shows productions written by this legend.
Three miles from Badgers Holt is the lovely town of Totnes which has a fabulous market every Friday in the heart of the town - plenty of local produce, a lot of organic, very orginal foods and some marvellous interesting artefacts! During the summer months, Elizabethan dress is almost compulsory with the locals going about their everyday business on a Tuesday. The town is definitely worth a visit - plenty of great eating places and some great Tea rooms with irresistible home made cakes!
The English Riviera boasts 22 miles of coastal paths and countless sandy beaches, the nearest is Goodrington Sands but Blackpool Sands is definitely worth a visit - you may have to pay to park in the car park but once it's full no one else is allowed onto this golden beach, therefore never crowded and just fabulous really clean facilities.
During the months of June, July and August there are countless fetes, fairs, festivals, carnivals - literally something happening every week.
Badgers Holt is probably in one of the best locations for exploring South Devon. Few places in the world can genuinely offer you such a wide range of ways to spend your time. Relaxing on the beach, afternoons browsing through designer shops or visiting fascinating museums.
If you have the energy, there is a vast selection of sporting activities to choose from, both on the water and off the water, plus hundreds of place to visit within easy reach and a diary packed with events and festivals. For those looking to spread their wings there are historic towns, expansive morrs, picture-postcard villages and heritage-rich cities close by, just waiting to be discovered.
Just a few places to visit:
Quaywest Water Park
Torbay Golf Centre
Junior Quad Bike Centre
Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary & Buckfast Butterflies
Even the supermarket is only 1.5 miles away!

"What a wonderful place to stay!"
Have just returned from a really lovely stay at New Barn Farm with our 2 young Children. We stayed in Badgers Holt and it was ideal for our family. Really clean, great facilities and we were welcomed with scones and cream... There was even some milk in the fridge! Was a great base for exploring the local area with Paignton sea front a short drive and the zoo really close too. Travelled into Brixham and salcombe and was easily accessible from where we were. Lovely views from our cottage window and a superb little play area for the kids.
Staying here made our holiday stress free (with a 2 year old and baby!) and for that we shall most definitely be returning!
Thanks to Yvonne and Simon for a lovely stay!
