The English Riviera region

Devon is famous for its beautiful countryside and mild climate.

Lovely unspoilt coastline, natural landscapes, and of course cream teas are what makes Devon special. It has lots to offer including historical attractions like the homes of Sir Francis Drake and Agatha Christie, or for natural history fans you can take a trip down to the Jurassic Coast. There are also festivals galore, including Regattas, Heritage Weeks, Steam Fairs, and activities such as Golf, Sailing, Power Boat Rides, Quad Biking or a trek along the South West Cost Path.


Life in Brixham primarily revolves around the sea, so for all you water lovers there are plenty of opportunities to get your feet wet. Boat trips to Torquay & Dartmouth, fishing, sailing, scuba diving, canoeing, swimming and sunbathing are all right on your doorstep.

For those who would prefer to stay firmly on dry land there is a huge variety of activities and places to visit including spectacular walks to suit all abilities be it coastal or parkland. Play a round of golf at nearby Churston Golf Club, or why not just watch the world go by with a pint of beer or a cup of tea from your favourite harbour side pub or restaurant? Of course you can also buy shellfish from the stalls around the harbour, eat fish & chips from the paper or dine in some of the very fine fish reataurants in town.

In spite of its picturesque ‘pretty as a postcard’ feel, the historic port of Brixham is one of the busiest commercial fishing ports in England. Every day dozens of trawlers unload their catch of squid, crabs, lobster, muscles & plaice. Much of the bounty is brought by local restaurants and the rest heads for top hotels and restaurants in London and the Continent. Visitors can view the hustle and bustle of activity and the fish market from an elevated platform on the harbour side.

Many of the harbour side pubs are full of local fishermen who are never shy about sharing a few tales with visitors. Because it is a real working port, Brixham has avoided becoming a quaint, twee tourist trap.
