TORQAY, SOUTH DEVON - itself became fashionable for naval officers & other affluent families during early 19th century, prompting building of large fashionable villas and exclusive hotels. Today, Torquay is well served with direct rail links to the major cities, motorway & airport at the cathedral city of Exeter.

With a micro-climate comparable to those found much further South and some 22 miles of coastline, cliffs, coves and beaches for you to enjoy, you’ll soon understand why Torbay is also referred to as the English Riviera.

Stunning views are to be seen just about everywhere across the Bay, and in addition to the expected water sports of swimming, kayaking, paddle-boarding, surfing and boating, the coastline provides great places for diving, angling and crabbing.

The English Riviera is also part of the UNESCO Global Geopark which recognises and supports important wildlife areas around the world. Whether it’s up at Berry Head Nature Reserve, Cockington Country Park, or Occombe Farm, the area offers brilliant woodland, cliff, and coastal paths to explore. The local charity Torbay Coast & Countryside Trust also organise a variety of opportunities to study the natural wildlife at your leisure.

The town is an ideal base for those also wanting to explore a bit further afield. Following the coastline to the West, you’ll easily reach places like Brixham, Dartmouth, and Blackpool Sands while to the East you’ll find Teignmouth, Dawlish and just a bit further on Exmouth and Exeter, with stunning Dartmoor just beyond. Moreover, Cornwall is only an hour away (Tamar Bridge) with its beautiful north and south coastlines and world-famous attractions like the Eden Project.

Torquay train station is 2 miles from the cottage. By road the A380 (South Devon Highway) brings you to within 3 miles of the cottage, this road is linked to the M5 motorway.
