Find cottages in PaigntonVisit Paignton

One of the jewels in the crown of the English Riveira, the Devon seaside town of Paignton has been delighting visitors for decades.

Paignton, perched at the southern end of Torbay, isn't just a great destination for families looking for a seaside holiday, but also for couples enjoying a romantic break or for those with a taste of outdoor adventure.

The gorgeous Blue Flag sandy beaches are an obvious draw, where you can do much more than build sandcastles. Water skiing, paddle boarding, windsurfing or just good old fashioned boating are possible in the crystal waters of the bay. If you don't fancy the sea, enjoy the adrenaline rush of the Splashdown Water Park close to Goodrington Beach.

When not on the water, how about a visit to Paignton Zoo? Visit re-creations of tropical wetlands or the Savannah and see for yourself some of the wonders of the natural world. Go back in time with a trip on the Dartmouth Steam Railway, taking in some of Britain's most breathtaking coastline, stopping off at historic picturesque villages such as Kingswear on the edge of the spectacular Dart Estuary or Brixham, where traditional fishing boats can still be seen. Then there's the Geoplay Park, where children can find out about the fascinating geology of this internationally recognised area.

After dark, Paignton doesn't just offer traditional seaside fun such as amusements on the Pier and fish and chips. Superb restaurants and pubs offering mouth-watering local food await you. Plus there's plenty of entertainment to be had at the Palace Theatre, the local cinema and the many special events taking place in the town during the season including the Paignton Regatta, Children's Week and the Motorbike Festival.

Whatever you like to do, Paignton will have something to excite you. Search for holiday cottages in Paignton to book your ideal break.

Rosehill Ref: 28892

Situated just 300 yards from a sandy beach, this deceptively spacious detached cottage is in the perfect location for a family holiday. It has panoramic and breathtaking views over Torbay from most bedrooms and the back garden, making this an ideal place in which to relax or sunbathe, as well as to enjoy balmy summer evenings al fresco with a glass of wine. Rosehill has been decorated and furnished to a very good standard.

The house is within walking distance of local shops, pubs and restaurants. Goodrington Beach is a sandy beach and also offers family entertainment on the front, as well as Quaywest Water Park. During the summer season the local steam train can be seen running; take a trip to Dartmouth and visit the castle, or the many shops and tea rooms. Paignton also has an award-winning zoo, which makes a great day out. Close by is Agatha Christie’s family home, Greenway, which makes a nice trip.

500 yards from beach

These 6 holiday apartments (refs 29121, 29122, 29123, 29124, 29125 and 29126) offer the perfect holiday base for family or friends to get together. A short walk is Preston Sands, a great family beach, where you can sunbathe, swim or grab a fishing net and explore the rock pools at low tide. Along the back of the beach there’s a promenade lined with colourful beach huts, where you can hire one for the day. On the corner of a quiet cul-de-sac and main road, you will find a parade of shops, cafes and restaurants all on your doorstep. Paignton has a wide range of great activities for children of all ages, and the central green is home to a multiplex cinema, crazy golf and the pier with rides and amusements. The Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway departs from the centre of town, while Paignton Zoo is a mile or so from the centre. Living Coasts, Torquay’s award-winning coastal zoo, is home to a magnificent array of marine life from around the world and is set in a state of the art naturalistic environment. The true story of Agatha Christie’s life is every bit as intriguing and fascinating as her books, and nowhere can you get closer to her legacy than on the English Riviera. Christie was born in Torquay, and spent many of the most important chapters of her life here, as well as using real places in the area as settings for her murder mysteries. Dartmoor is on the doorstep, with its stunning scenery and heather clad rocky tors and ponies, and is a walkers’ paradise at any time of year. Horse riding, climbing, letterboxing, geo-caching or kayaking are also available. Close by visit Babbacombe Model Village and Babbacombe Cliff Railway. Take a boat trip to Brixham from Torquay harbour or discover Agatha Christie’s summer house at Galmpton. Further afield is Plymouth, 25 miles, with its Hoe, Barbican and National Marine Aquarium, whilst the Eden Project (approximately 1½ hours’ drive) is a fabulous day out. Exeter has a magnificent cathedral and quay, whilst a boat trip can be taken up the river to two stunning pubs. Take a walk along the South West Coastal Path which runs along the entire length of the Jurassic Coast and offers walkers stunning views. From the coastal path you can experience the drama of sheer cliff faces, take in the wonderful towns of Beer or Budleigh Salterton, a tranquil and historic seaside town which nestles on the edge of a pebble beach. Visit Seaton, with its famous trams, or Sidmouth, which still has a unique charm and has captivated thousands of holidaymakers. Beach 500 yards. Shop and restaurant 50 yards, pub 500 yards.

Situated in a quiet residential area and within 2 miles of sandy beaches, this property is ideally located for holidays all year round. The link-detached house is decorated and furnished to a very good standard. Whether upstairs or down there are fantastic views of Torbay – from Torquay to Brixham. Enjoy beautiful views whilst sitting on the large balcony or while dining alfresco on the extensive decking area in the garden. Looking towards the 100 year old Paignton Pier with its many amusements, you will notice a prominent white-coloured building, (flood-lit at night). This is Oldway Mansion, modelled on the palace of Versailles by the Singer (sewing machines) family, open to the public all year round and well worth a visit. There are many activities available locally including the theatre, which has shows throughout the year, 2 golf clubs, go-karting, sailing and bird watching , or visit the award-winning Paignton Zoo. There are some superb walks around this stretch of coastline or take a ferry to Torquay and visit the ’living coasts’, where penguins wander freely, and whilst there visit Kent’s Cavern, where the remains of some of Britain’s very earliest inhabitants (dating back approximately 25,000 years) were found, a very interesting tour. The Bay has a thriving fishing industry and fresh crab may be purchased at Paignton’s Harbour, or take the ferry to the fishing village of Brixham for the fresh fish market and see the replica of the Golden Hind, the original of which Sir Francis Drake sailed into the harbour. Torbay encompasses Torquay, Paignton and Brixham and offers opportunities for surfing, swimming, sailing, angling and there is also a yachting marina. Take a trip on the steam train from Paignton to Kingswear. Visit Agatha Christie’s summer house, nearby, then by ferry over to Dartmouth to sample its array of shops and restaurants. Then enjoy a walk around the castle before stopping in one of the tea shops for a Devon cream tea - a wonderful day out! Away from the coast there are plenty of places to visit, including the picturesque town of Totnes with its fine 16th-century buildings, Elizabethan market and farmer’s market, held once a week. No holiday would be complete without a trip to Dartmoor to climb one of the Tors or just take in its wild beauty. Then travel across the moor to Tavistock, where there is some more dramatic scenery. Take in the sights and stop to see the Dartmoor ponies or canoe in the many rivers of Dartmoor. There are many National Trust properties to visit around the area and you’ll find castles, abbeys, wildlife parks, steam trains and model railways all within easy reach, many open throughout the year. The Roman city of Exeter is approximately 15 miles away and has lovely walks or hire a bike at the quay and use the cycle path alongside the river. Beach 2 miles. Shop ¾ mile, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
