Out and About

Torquay is perfect as a base to discover South Devon. Dramatic coastline and wonderful Devon countryside, charming villages, thatched cottages and welcoming pubs.
Nearby Cockington Country Park boasts a 1000 year old church, manor house with arts
and crafts including glass blowing, traditional pub and old village, all in beautiful
gardens. The newly refurbished Torre Abbey is a few minutes’ walk. Regular boat trips
offer excursions to Brixham or historic Dartmouth and up the river to ‘Bohemian’ Totnes,
Devon’s 'funky' town with its soulful atmosphere, laid-back lifestyle and charming,
Elizabethan architecture.

Just off the coast road from Torquay to Shaldon is Maidencombe, a beautiful little cove
and home of the Thatched Tavern. Shaldon, with its pristine village & Teignmouth with
pleasant beach and old pubs.

Unspoilt Sidmouth on the Jurassic coast is a classic regency resort and not far from
Torquay and Exeter. Other places to explore: Dartmouth, Salcombe and Blackpool
Sands. On Dartmoor: Widecombe on the Moor, Ashburton, Tavistock and

Torquay's waterfront and marina is the focus of life in the town, which is graced by the palm-lined promenade and seafront gardens. The harbour has many pavement cafés. There is an abundance of restaurants catering for every taste, including a Michelin Star restaurant.
