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.

Set on the coastal road, just 600 yards above the sheltered Maidencombe Beach and the village’s pretty thatched inn, Crossways (refs 30273, 30274, 30275 and 30276) are ideal for family holidays, walkers or for just a relaxing break. Set in the grounds of the owner’s home, this complex of semi-detached cottages is an ideal holiday base. The properties are decorated and furnished to a good standard. Across the road and down the hill, is the lovely sheltered beach, which is complete with a café, and if you fancy climbing the rocks, you will see some fantastic views across the ocean. Take in some of the stunning Torbay coastline, walk from beach to beach past beautiful cliffs and rolling hills, and enjoy some of the best coastal walks in Devon. Torquay is a very popular and historic town with a huge variety of things to do – a perfect place to entertain the whole family. The town centre is only 4 miles away, offering plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants. Like most of the towns in the area, Torquay is situated right on the coast, and the main town is just a few minutes away from the nearest beach - Torre Abbey Sands. There are eight other beaches around Torquay, all with unique views across the bay. The town itself is bursting with history, being the birthplace of the famous murder mystery writer Agatha Christie. It also has beautiful ancient caves containing a variety of interesting fossils, World War II slipways in the harbour and Torre Abbey, which was built in 1166 and is the largest surviving medieval monastery in Devon and Cornwall. And of course, who can forget the role Torquay played in the famous comedy Fawlty Towers. The South West Coastal Path from Watcombe in Torquay to Maidencombe is a favourite spot for local walkers. This walk has a little bit of everything - from woods and open fields, to beaches, coastal scenery and rare wildlife. Two of the English Riviera’s top attractions can be found in nearby Babbacombe; Bygones Victorian Street and Babbacombe Model Village. The property is just 22 miles from Exeter city centre. Paignton Zoo is a great day out for everyone, and is home to thousands of amazing animals and plants. Situated on the mouth of the river Teign, Shaldon is an unspoilt village, with a thriving livelihood based on the estuary. No visit to the area would be complete without indulging in traditional cream teas. Torquay has a lot to offer, there is the Living Coasts where penguins wander freely, the theatre which has shows all year round, or take a ferry across to Brixham, to sample the fresh fish and seafood. Take a trip to Dartmoor to climb one of the tors which isn’t to be missed, or just take in the beauty and travel across the moor to Tavistock, where there is some dramatic scenery. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 600 yards.

Moorings and Moorings Apartment are both tastefully decorated apartments situated peacefully in one of the most enviable locations in Torquay. Tucked away in an acre of gardens with open views across the valley to the sea, it’s easy to let yourself unwind. Offering a cosy, warm winter let, many customers return for an off season to enjoy an ‘English Riviera’ winter break. These holiday properties (refs: 29650 & 30587) are attached to the owner’s home but offer privacy and great views. A large decking area overlooks Ilsham Valley and is ideal for outdoor dining. Along with a private, covered patio area close to a koi pond, there are plenty of outside areas in which to relax. A large area of gardens is secure and allows pets to roam freely. Located on the boundary of Lincombe Woods, you’re also within walking distance to many wooded walks, meadows, village shops and beaches, including arguably Torbay’s finest beach - Meadfoot. With its southerly outlook, clear waters and views, it deserves its reputation as one of the region’s best. Moorings Apartments are a 3-minute drive to the marina, harbour and main shopping areas. Wellswood village itself is 5-minute woodland stroll away, and is one of the most charming areas of Torquay. Everything you need for day to day living is here, with restaurants, a wine shop, post office and village pantry. The local pub is known for its excellent food, sunny beer garden and friendly atmosphere. The village is also the birthplace of crime writer Agatha Christie and home of the Gleneagles Hotel, which was inspiration for John Cleese’s ’Fawlty Towers’. Finally, Kent’s Cavern Caves is one of Europe’s top prehistoric Stone Age caves. With an extensive labyrinth of spectacular and easily accessible caverns open daily and all year round, it’s an absolute must. Beach ¾ mile. Shop, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.
