**Please Note: the NEW HomeAway nightly pricing & tariff calculator displayed to the right, calculates nightly rates by taking the weekly tariff rate and dividing it by 7. This nightly rate is misrepresented, as it does not take into account Short Break Percentages explained in the Tariff Notes section below. Sadly we have no control over this new trend towards nightly 'hotel-style' pricing so please get in touch and we will be happy to help you further.**

From the delightful setting of the holiday home, beach lovers are well-catered for, with the Blue Flag beach of Livermead Sands just a short stroll away. Torre Abbey Sands are also easily within easy reach, for the perfect excuse to enjoy a romantic beach walk, summertime picnic or family day out!

Review by Andrew from Staffordshire: "Everything about this place was perfect, clean, warm, comfortable and perfectly placed to get places even if you don't drive as there is a bus stop right outside. My family and I would definitely book this place again if ever visiting Torquay again. Babbacombe Model Village is a must visit Thank you for a perfect week in every sense"

Beautiful, clean house which was exactly like the photos showed. It felt like you were the first person to stay there which was nice and we felt at home straight away. Good location and easy to find. Will definitely look at returning again.

From the delightful setting of the holiday home, beach lovers are well-catered for, with the Blue Flag beach of Livermead Sands just a short stroll away. Torre Abbey Sands are also easily within easy reach, for the perfect excuse to enjoy a romantic beach walk, summertime picnic or family day out!

The holiday retreat is easily accessible, being located just a short distance away from the ‘buzz’ of Torquay and the local train, which runs past the rear of the property.

Picturesque Torquay offers a wealth of cafés, bars, restaurants and shops to complement your stay, alongside a treasure trove of visitor attractions and year-round leisure pursuits. From walking, water sports, golf, cycling, evenings out, fine dining and sightseeing; this beautiful part of Devon truly offers something for everyone!

Additional attractions and activities include:

Beachcombing, Bike rentals, Canoeing/kayaking, Conservation area, Grocery shopping nearby, Historic castle, Lighthouse, Medical services nearby, Miniature golf, Mountain biking, National park, National Trust properties, Near beach, Park, Playground, Restaurants & bars, Table tennis and Train station.


There are several Golf Clubs in the area, the nearest one being Torquay Golf Club - Petitor Road, St Marychurch,Torquay, Devon TQ1 4QF Telephone: (01803) 314 591

Torquay Golf Club is an extremely popular venue for visitors and societies alike - due to the excellent service and friendly welcome provided. It is a delightful parkland course with stunning views over Lyme Bay to the east and Dartmoor to the west.

Torquay makes a great short break for Golfers in both summer and winter. When many other courses are snowbound or unplayable the clement Torbay weather ensures that a full 18 holes can be completed!


Torquay's waterfront is the focus of life in the town. Here you'll find the palm-lined promenade, seafront gardens, a lively harbour and an international marina. The new Living Coasts attraction adds to the variety of the new waterfront and the illuminated bridge is a great backdrop to a relaxing evening drink. Yet within minutes of Torquay town centre there are beautiful beaches easily accessible by foot, road or sea.

There is an abundance of pavement cafes, Torquay pubs, Torquay restaurants and nightlife in Torquay, good quality shops and a host of attractions to suit every interest.

The English Riviera is a resort in the truest sense of the word, attracting visitors of all ages and interests throughout the year. Undergoing a water front regeneration and a number of new attractions in Torquay and accommodation schemes, Torquay has something for everyone and for all ages, at all times of the year.

Torquay has been one of the UK 's top holiday destinations since Victorian Times when the gentry promenaded, bathing huts were wheeled down to the beaches and anyone who was anyone had an attractive villa overlooking the sea.

It was the Victorians who first used the English Riviera name to describe their favourite resort and their legacy remains to this day with sparkling white villas perched on the verdant hilltops, beautiful gardens around the seafront and elegant Victorian facades along the main streets.

Don't be fooled by the Victorian ancestry however, Torquay is also a vibrant and forward thinking resort attracting visitors of all interests, from Art and Culture afficionados to marine enthusiasts.

Torquay's famous seven hills provide the backdrop to a waterfront scene that matches anything you'll find on the French Riviera.

There are 22 miles of coastline, cliffs, coves and beaches and walks to rival any in the South West of England, with a climate that belongs somewhere much further south. There are opportunities for surfing, safe swimming, diving, sailing, angling and wonderful opportunities to study the natural wildlife at your leisure

Stunning views are to be seen just about every where across Torbay, out over the English Channel, along the 40 miles of Lyme Bay to Portland Bill or inland towards the Ten Tors Dartmoor. Torquay is an ideal base from which to visit Dartmouth, Totnes, Exeter and Plymouth, all of which are only a few miles distant.
