Torquay

Torquay on ‘the English Riviera’ is one of Devon’s most popular coastal resorts due to its warm climate, buzzing atmosphere and excellent facilities.

Torquay was first ‘discovered’ by well-to-do Victorians who loved the agreeable climate and long sandy beaches. Today it retains its unique charm with a bustling harbour and sophisticated marina, a lovely pier and promenade where you can stroll and relax with a backdrop of palm trees that make you think you’re in the Mediterranean.

Choose from a wide selection of waterfront restaurants and bars where you can chill-out and watch the world go by. From the elevated position of the Royal Terrace Gardens you can enjoy a great view of the town and bay below.

Because of its excellent facilities, plenty of things to do, great night life, visitor attractions and local activities Torquay attracts all ages of visitors, from families to couples and groups.

See the beautiful Pavilion, which is one of many testimonies to the Victorian era; also worth a visit is the spectacular Torre Abbey with its art gallery and beautiful gardens. Step back even further in time with a visit to Kent’s Cavern, said to be the most important Stone Age site in Britain, brought to life in a way that’s fascinating and fun.

The popular Living Coasts Zoo with an exciting range of animals from land, sea and the air, including a spacious free-flying bird enclosure, or on a smaller scale, get down to the Model Village at nearby Babbacombe.

    Ref: 31160


    Located in the village of Cockington, Granary Cottage is a first floor holiday apartment located above one of the prettiest thatched gift shops in the village. Situated close to a pretty tea room, the property has been decorated and furnished to a very good standard. Only 3/4 miles from Torquay’s seafront and 3 miles from the town centre, this is a perfect spot to take a holiday. Whether you like walking, birdwatching or taking a perfect lazy holiday, Cockington has it all. A real picture-postcard village, Cockington has hardly changed over hundreds of years. There is evidence of Iron Age and Saxon settlements near the local pub, and the village is mentioned in the Domesday Book. This thatched village is the perfect setting for a walk, no matter what time of year it is. It has an historic forge, a court and church, tea rooms, thatched pub and, of course, the lakes and woods. The village sits somewhat incongruously, right in the heart of urban Torbay, but stubbornly refuses to be tainted by modern developments. The village is one of the most photographed places in the country, and the surrounding country park and woodland makes it an ideal destination for walking.
    The pride of the village is Cockington Court, originally owned by the Cary family from 1375 to 1654. It is now home to Cockington Chocolate Company with their sweets, truffles and gifts, and a fabulous contemporary arts and crafts hub, showcasing creative arts from, amongst others, glassmakers, a blacksmith and conceptual artists. With beautiful gardens and a fabulous tea room, its a great place to spend the day, with plenty to see and do for the whole family. Cockington Court also has a connection to the English Riviera’s most famous daughter, Agatha Christie. In her youth, she often visited the village, and her novel ’Why Didn’t They Ask Evans?’ is dedicated to her friend Christopher Mallock. The Mallocks regularly staged amateur theatricals at Cockington Court and, despite her terrible shyness, Agatha Christie regularly took part. Think afternoon tea, cricket on the green and the gentle pace of village life you would find in an Agatha Christie Miss Marple novel (without the murders of course!), and you have the rural idyll that is Cockington. If you want to truly experience traditional, English country life, come to Cockington on the English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay.
    Brixham and Paignton are also close by. Take a trip on a steam train from Paignton to Dartmouth, enjoy the theatre at Torquay or take a ferry over to Brixham for the day. There are also many National Trust properties nearby. Beach 3/4 miles. Shop 11/4 miles, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

    All on first floor: Living room with single pull-out bed (for alternative sleeping only)/dining room. Steps down to kitchen. 1 double bedroom with en-suite shower room and toilet.

    Gas central heating, electricity, bed linen and towels included. Freeview TV. DVD. Electric cooker. Microwave. Dishwasher. Wi-fi. Sitting-out area and bench. Public car park. Welcome pack. No smoking. No children under 12 years.
