Best known as the birthplace of Agatha Christie, Torbay takes in 22 miles of the stunning South Devon coastline and is comprised of three very different towns; Brixham, Paignton and Torquay. Affectionately named the English Riviera by well-travelled Victorians who likened it to the French Riviera, Torquay sports palm trees, gardens, a marina, historic architecture and a vibrant seafront.
Hugging the sea in a horseshoe shape, Torquay is backed by steep hills where many of its sea facing homes enjoy wide views over the bay. On a super clear day, the bay offers terrific views over to Dorset, while Brixham’s breakwater can be spotted jutting out to sea. Our collection of sea view properties in Torquay have been designed to make the most of those incredible panoramas so you’ll be able to take in the moods of the sky and bay at any time of the day or evening whether for cocktails on your balcony as you watch the sun set, or coffee and croissants inside as you witness a storm roll in.
Torquay is a town that has plenty going for it. If you’re a nature lover you’ll relish the manicured grounds of Cockington and its surrounding woods. History buffs can enjoy a stroll around Torre Abbey and its Spanish Barn, said to have housed Spanish prisoners of war who were captured when the Spanish Armada tried to invade England’s shores.
Families with children will discover a host of attractions to keep all ages busy including several good beaches like Meadfoot, Torre Abbey Sands and Babbacombe. Paignton Zoo is just a short drive away as is Occombe Farm, and both offer a full day out with the kids that even parents will adore.
Not your typical seaside resort, Torquay really does have a noteworthy selection of very good restaurants so if you enjoy eating out whilst on holiday, you’ll have many to choose from. Special occasions can be celebrated in style at the Michelin star Elephant which sits just round from the harbour or for more fine dining you could try The Orange Tree which also has an excellent reputation.
A more relaxed affair is on offer at Bistro Pierre which overlooks the bay and serves simple French classics, as well as at Pier Point on the marina which is an excellent spot for boat and people watching during the warmer months.
