The English Riviera region

Torquay is in the heart of the English Riviera in the region of Torbay on the south coast of Devon. It is a picturesque area made up of old fishing villages, long sandy beaches, large Victorian villas and family-oriented resorts. There is a variety of activities to enjoy including water sports, cliff/coastal walks, museums, open farms, model villages and more.


The cottage is within a 5 minute drive of the brand new 21 million pound Marina Development. Torquay is at the hub of the English Riviera, with multiple attractions. As well as the Riviera Centre, which is a combined pool (with wave machine), sports centre and theatre complex, Torquay also boasts a new Aquarium, Aqualand and the Princess Theatre. Torquay has long had an extremely active jazz scene, which culminates in an annual jazz festival. The resort features continental style cafes, specialist shopping and an exuberant night-life. Close to St Anns is the smaller Babbacombe Theatre and local sporting facilities include bowls, putting, tennis and golf.

"A perfect spot, in a perfect cottage, and perfect weathe, made this a perfect holiday"

Great weather was just the start. The cottage was ideal for us, and our sons family, including our two grandchildren. Easy access for our two cars, and very good local shopping too. Simple access also, to most directions along the coast. All in all, quite brilliant!

Thank you so much for your lovely review. You are most welcome to return anytime.

"Location, location, location."

This is an nice little cottage, perfectly placed for exploring this part of Devon. After taking a wide berth into the narrow drive there is a large porch area, brilliant for putting rainy day clothes.… More

Thank you so much for your lovely review of our cottage. You welcome to come back anytime you would like to.

"Good accomodation = Good holiday"

Really nice cottage, bedrooms particularly spacious there was plenty of room for us all. The kitchen was well equipt with more than enough bits and pieces and the welcome supplies were really useful. It was very well located, just minutes walk from the shops and local attractions, we didn't even use the car some days and Torquay harbour was only 10 minutes in the car.
The only slightly negative thing I can say is the bathroom could do with retiling / decorating, but other than that we enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely book again next time we holiday in Devon.

Thank you very much for your positive review. When we bought the house we chose it particularly as we found it spacious and perfectly located for all the amenities including sandy beaches. It is interesting that you mention the bathroom, as we are having it refurbished in January - not long to go now!
