A Guide to Paignton

Literally at the centre of the seaside resort of Torbay, Paignton is the oldest of the three English Riviera towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham. From its iconic pier with amusements and family fun, to the long sandy beaches, award-winning local attractions such as Paignton Zoo and Splashdown Quaywest water park, we think Paignton is the perfect family seaside destination! Each year, hundreds of thousands of people journey to Paignton to enjoy beach holidays on the Devon coastline, and we hear tales of how people never realised how amazing somewhere like this could be! From budget beach breaks to luxury pads, we're proud to have a large number of self-catering holiday homes in Paignton to offer to our guests, and they're all spoilt for choice with things to see and do!

We're also lucky enough to journey to Paignton fairly frequently from our office on Torquay Harbourside, as well as bringing our friends and family who travel from afar to see what all the fuss is for. That's meant that we can hand-pick our favourite beaches, restaurants and attractions in Paignton to share with you!
