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.

The South Hams:

The South Hams is only a few miles away and is recognised as being a great place to visit on a day out.

Although the main administrative town is Totnes, there are other towns which are probably more popular for visitors, especially those on holiday. We can suggest some great days out from your Torquay base that will give you a flavour of both the hustle and bustle and tranquility experienced by this region.

The South Hams has the estuary towns of Dartmouth, Kingsbridge and Salcombe, all well known as places to enjoy fine food and local shopping, not to mention their popularity with boat owners and fishermen.

There are some magnificient beaches such as Beesands and Slapton Sands, which stretches for miles to the rocks reaching around to Start Point.

If you want a great day out (without the car), take a trip to Paignton and catch the Steam Train to Kingswear and then the Ferry to Dartmouth. You could then take a ferry all the way back around Berry Head to Torquay Harbour. This can all be organised through a single ticket from Riverlink Cruises.

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.

Torquay

Surrounded by some of the most breath-taking scenery to be found in the UK, the Cliff Railway provides a vital and non-exhausting way for locals and holiday makers alike to soak up the peaceful atmosphere and take in the amazing views as they travel to and from the water's edge.

Torquay's busy harbour side and town centre are just a couple of miles away by car. Alternatively, you can walk there & back along the famous South West Coastal Path, with stunning scenery every step of the way.

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.

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 Torquay town centre there are beautiful beaches easily accessible by foot, road or sea.

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.

The heart of the famous resort town of Torquay is also easily accessible, and offers a wide range of restaurants, bars and shops to enjoy, as well as the seaside town's most popular family-friendly visitor attractions, which include Living Coasts Sea Life Centre, Torquay's Dinosaur World and its breathtaking marina and splendid Victoriana pleasure gardens.
