We had a fantastic stay in Penthouse One at Riviera Apartments in June this year, the weather made it perfect but the accommodation and surrounding area was first class. There are five apartments in total, and the lift services the guests of the five apartments. Penthouse One has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and a very large living area, there is also a utility room with washing machine and dryer, iron, ironing board etc. The balcony wraps around the whole apartment which meant you can sit outside your own bedroom or walk from the bedroom and in through the lounge. When a sea view is advertised you are often wary of what you might get but the sea view really was panoramic, my parents whom we took with us didn't want to leave the apartment! We had a slight mishap mid week when we managed to lock ourselves out but we were back in within 10 minutes with the assistance of the helpful management team. All in all we had a great holiday and have already booked the larger apartment (Penthouse Five) for next summer as now the rest of the family want to come!
From the Owner
“We opened in 2010 gaining a Five Star Rating from Visit England with Gold Award and have maintained this standard ever since regularly updating to maintain standards. The apartments are well situated and have amazing sea views, unlike some properties the views shown on our website are what you actually get. Our apartments have wrap around balconies so there is lots of outside space to enjoy. Arrival can be anytime of day or night and there is an informative guest manual and emergency numbers to call should you require any assistance during your stay. We currently enjoy a 80% returning customer rate and our Tripadvisor reviews speak for themselves.”
Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
For walkers The South West Coast Path is 630 miles of superb coastal walking. We are a great base for the path or an overnight rest for the weary! The path is just 30 metres from the apartments from where you can make a choice, left to Dawlish or right towards the passenger ferry and on towards smugglers cove.
If the tide is high and there are waves you may get wet! The Templer Way starting from Teignmouth is an 18 mile ancient route that follows the transport of granite from Hay Tor on Dartmoor down to the sea.
There are some fantastic bicycle routes around for cyclists, we can provide information and offer secure bicycle storage for you during your stay.
If you want to try diving Teign Diving Centre can arrange dive courses for you from beginners through to advanced. We also offer secure dive equipment storage free of charge.
Seasports South West on the back beach provide activities for children and adults including windsurfing, surfing, paddle boarding, sailing and kay
The beach itself is a long one so you don’t need to worry about the crowds, even during the summer. It stretches down from the mouth of the River Teign and is overlooked by an impressive Victorian Pier. Away from the main beach you've got Teignmouth back beach with local fishermen mending their nets, local bars and restaurants right on the beach and old-school activities like catching sand eels and exploring rock pools.
Exeter Airport is approximately 20 minutes away by car. For guests travelling by train Teignmouth Train Station is just a five minute walk away and has a taxi rank outside for those with lots of luggage!
Teignmouth town is within easy walking distance located behind the apartments. The historic city of Exeter is 30 minutes by car or train. Dartmoor is within easy reach by car where there are lots of walks, quaint villages with local pubs, wonderful wildlife and some great kayaking.
Teignmouth is the perfect spot for a family friendly holiday. Right on the beachfront, we offer superb accommodation but with all the fun of the seaside. Whether their favourite activity is building sandcastles, discovering rock pools, paddling, surfing or watching the fabulous sunsets. Teign Diving Centre is just a short walk away too!
Just a stone's throw from the beach there is a brand new playpark with age specific zones from babies, to toddlers with an exciting splash zone through to the climbing rope pyramid aimed at the adventurous older child. 2010 saw the opening of a new skateboard park aimed at the under 12s, it has gentle ramps and jumps for practising their scooter and skateboarding skills.
Across the water at Shaldon numerous children spend endless hours catching as much as they can with a crab line whilst the long "Smugglers Tunnel" will lead you to a secluded sandy secluded beach where the pirates used to land their treasure and rum! For shell collectors, wait for the tide to go out and there are endless treasures to be found amongst the boats!
During inclement weather the local areas offers a wide range of indoor attractions and activities to keep children occupied. The award winning Paignton Zoo and Environmental Park is a fantastic day out, Crealy Adventure Park with rides, roller coasters and log flumes or Woodlands Leisure Park with its huge indoor soft play area. For further information visit our Local Attractions page on our website.
Riviera Apartments genuinely welcome the whole family, we offer a home from home environment including fully fitted kitchens with dishwashers, washer/dryers, double ovens and hobs, microwave ovens and separate fridges and freezers.

From the Owner
“Teignmouth is a lovely location and perfect for a weekend break or a family holiday. Teignmouth has two beaches, the main seafront and Teignmouth back beach. The main seafront is popular with families, the beach is sandy and has a gentle shelving. The seafront is monitored by lifeguards throughout the main season. Teignmouth seafront has a traditional pier and some lovely local cafes/takeaways selling delicious food and local produce. Teignmouth back beach has a completely different atmosphere with many restaurants and bars that have live music. You can literally sit on the beach with a drink in your hand, watch the boats coming and going and soak up the atmosphere. Teighmouth town has many restaurants and local shops including a few high street chains. We have a well stocked Coop and a Waitrose within easy walking distance of the apartments. If you don't fancy cooking but want to sit on your balcony enjoying the view there are many takeaways to choose from. Within easy driving distance there are many family attractions such as theme parks, award winning zoos, aquariums, adventure parks and some of the best coastal walks in the country.”
