Torbay Holiday Homes To Book in South Devon

With its beautiful beaches, palm trees, famously sunny weather and classic seaside resorts, it’s easy to see why Torbay – or the English Riviera – is so popular among holidaymakers who these days tend to prefer a holiday cottage than a single room in a hotel. This sweeping bay is home to pretty fishing villages and the quintessentially English resorts of Torquay, Brixham and Paignton. Torbay’s natural harbour faces the English Channel, on the south coast of Devon. With its russet-red cliffs, sandy beaches and secluded rocky coves, it’s undoubtedly one of the country’s most idyllic locations for cottage holidays. Whether you want to sunbathe, swim, walk the spectacular coast-path or watch the sunset with a plate of fresh seafood, you can’t go wrong with a holiday cottage in Torbay.

Halfway between Torquay and Brixham is Paignton, a charming resort with a magnificent seafront, home to an array of nostalgic amusements. Stroll along the graceful pier, visit the 18th century harbour and build a sandcastle on the beach. Nearby, at Goodrington Sands, waterslides, sailing and other watersports can be enjoyed.
