Holiday Cottages in Torquay
For a taste of the continent without having to leave the UK, book one of our Torquay Cottages in the heart of the English Riviera. Lined with palm trees and strings of coloured lights that illuminate the seafront by night, there's possibly nowhere more quintessentially English to take a break. With the stunning Abbey Sands beach virtually on your doorstep and the marina playing host to a variety of boats, yachts and cruisers, you could easily forget that you're in Britain at all. With plenty of attractions in the area, our extensive range of Torquay Cottages are absolutely ideal for families looking to enjoy some downtime together. Who needs the south of France when you have the southwest of England?
There's also plenty of appeal for couples looking for a romantic break. Torquay is packed with some excellent restaurants, ranging from quaint bistros to fine-dining establishments. On top of that you've got the famous promenade, the perfect spot for romantic walks, whatever the weather, whatever the time of year. Booking one of our holiday cottages in Torquay also puts you right at the heart of the action for festivals such as the International Agatha Christie Festival and the English Riviera Festival.
What's good to see and do in Torquay?
If you've booked one of our holiday cottages in Torquay for the whole family, you'll find lots of attractions practically on your doorstep. Kent's Cavern is packed with subterranean surprises and very close to the Babbacombe Model Village, which compacts all the charms of an English Riviera town in miniature. There are some excellent castles worth visiting, such as Compton Castle and Meadfoot, but be sure to set aside some time to visit Berry Pomeroy castle; not only is it a crumbling, atmospheric ruin, but it's also supposed to be the most haunted castle in Britain!
Couples are equally spoilt when it comes to days out. Beautiful beaches aside, you might want to take a trip to the elegant All Saints Church, where Agatha Christie was baptised, or maybe get down to the Royal Terrace Gardens to explore some beautifully sculpted parklands and the lush scenery. For a night out, the nearby Babbacombe Theatre wows audiences with top-notch, professional productions, comedy, and children's shows.
