Find cottages in TorquayVisit Torquay

Torquay on 'the English Riviera' is one of Devon's most popular coastal resorts due to its warm climate, buzzing atmosphere and excellent facilities.

Torquay was first 'discovered' by well-to-do Victorians who loved the agreeable climate and long sandy beaches. Today it retains its unique charm with a bustling harbour and sophisticated marina, a lovely pier and promenade where you can stroll and relax with a backdrop of palm trees that make you think you're in the Mediterranean.

Choose from a wide selection of waterfront restaurants and bars where you can chill-out and watch the world go by. From the elevated position of the Royal Terrace Gardens you can enjoy a great view of the town and bay below.

Because of its excellent facilities, plenty of things to do, great night life, visitor attractions and local activities Torquay attracts all ages of visitors, from families to couples and groups.

See the beautiful Pavilion, which is one of many testimonies to the Victorian era; also worth a visit is the spectacular Torre Abbey with its art gallery and beautiful gardens. Step back even further in time with a visit to Kent's Cavern, said to be the most important Stone Age site in Britain, brought to life in a way that's fascinating and fun.

The popular Living Coasts Zoo with an exciting range of animals from land, sea and the air, including a spacious free-flying bird enclosure, or on a smaller scale, get down to the Model Village at nearby Babbacombe.

Woodfield Manor is part of a Grade ll listed building, tucked away in a quiet exclusive part of Torquay in the heart of the English Riviera, within a 5 minute walk of the harbour and town. Once the home of Edward Vivian, a banker, scientist and benefactor to the poor. Woodfield was built for him and his family in the early 1840s. The building is steeped in history being part of the Torbay Civic Societies Blue Plaque Scheme. This very spacious property retains many original features including high ceilings, large rooms, stained glass windows and bay windows with distant views over the harbour. Now the house has been converted into apartments and updated to reflect today’s lifestyles. Torquay and the area offer days out, especially for a family holiday or friends who want to holiday together. Living Coasts Zoo is within walking distance where penguins wander freely. Take a boat trip and have a day out in Brixham, wander around the shops, take in the fish quay, have a day out mackerel fishing or visit one of the splendid fish restaurants. Torquay also has a theatre with various shows on all year. Babbacombe has a lot to offer including a cliff railway, model village and lovely shops. How about a ride on the High Flyer Balloon at Torre Abbey Sands. There are 22 miles of coastline, walks, cliffs, coves and beaches, along with its mild climate. Torquay is a place to relax, to soak up the atmosphere, to take in the scenery and enjoy the experience of a holiday in a classic English seaside resort. Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant 500 yards.
