The South Devon coastline is truly stunning as well as dramatic, visitors are treated to dazzling views over a crystal clear sea which are the envy of so many holiday destinations worldwide. The sea is flanked by the most gorgeous rolling countryside where pretty villages and towns or peaceful hideaways are just around the corner. We are located in the cosmopolitan town of Torquay, and together with the family resort of Paignton and the bustling fishing port of Brixham the three towns are widely acknowledged as The English Riviera and comprise South Devon’s Beautiful Bay.

Great Beach Holidays plus a whole lot more!
South Devon has long been famous for fabulous seaside holidays on award winning family friendly beaches and visitors especially enjoy the particularly warm UK temperatures that grace our sheltered coast, so mild is it that exotic Palm Trees thrive here all year round. But our lovely part of Devon has so much to offer, it’s a destination for everyone, whether you want to be out on the water, visiting historic buildings, exploring the beautiful countryside with its quaint towns and villages you will find a friendly welcome plus a great choice of tasty locally grown food, fresh fish & seafood prepared by a host of award winning chefs. We also have our share of celebrities, local Torquay folk are understandably hugely proud that their town is the birthplace of one of the world’s most famous authors, the town’s most famous daughter is none other than the Queen of crime writers Agatha Christie and the whole resort pays tribute to her during the annual Agatha Christie Festival but this is just one of a packed programme of events, festivals, carnivals, regattas and sailing championships which take place all over South Devon, so come down, see for yourself and enjoy the fun.
