Situation

Sorrento places you but a moments walk from the European Blue Flag Livermead Sands Beach, a popular spot fo water sports including sailing, kayaking water-skiing and kite-surfing. For those wishing to explore, Torquay is the perfect base: Dartmouth and Totnes are both a little under 10 miles away, whilst Exter with plenty of big name shopping and international airport lies approximately 30 miles away, also accessible by train from the nearby Torquay Station.
