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.

There are many tourist attractions close by including Agatha Christie’s summer home, Babbacombe’s model village and the award winning Paignton Zoo. The Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway runs along the coast to Kingswear, opposite Dartmouth. Take a ferry across to visit Dartmouth with its array of shops and restaurants, take a walk around the castle and enjoy one of the tea shops for a Devon cream tea. Away from the coast there are plenty of places to visit, including the picturesque town of Totnes with some fine 16th-century buildings, and once a week there is a popular market. No trip would be complete without a visit to Dartmoor to climb one of the Tors or just take in the beauty and travel across the moor to Tavistock, where you can enjoy some dramatic scenery. There are many NT properties and plenty of swimming, sailing and angling. Torquay has a lot to offer, such as the Living Coasts, where the penguins wander freely, and the theatre which has shows all year round. Visit the yachting marina and a selection of fine gardens, in addition to Kent’s Cavern where the remains of some of Britain’s very earliest inhabitants were found. Discover the castles, abbeys, wildlife parks, steam trains and model railways, all within easy reach with many open throughout the year.

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.
