Paignton; Cruising, Steam & Cream





6 DAYS FROM £438


Stretching along 22 miles of stunning South Devon coastline, the beautiful English Riviera has been a popular holiday destination for centuries. Sandy beaches, rocky coves and sub-tropical plants add to the Mediterranean feel and the busy waterfronts are a hive of activity as both working and pleasure craft come and go. The popular seaside resort of Paignton is famed for its long sandy beaches, paddler friendly waters and a colourful bustling pier.


Very successfully utilised in 2016, our base in Paignton is once again the very comfortable family owned REDCLIFFE HOTEL which is superbly situated overlooking the sea on a promontory which divides the two sandy beaches of Paignton and Preston. Facilities at the hotel include a restaurant with superb sea views, a bar, two lounges, large sun terrace, indoor and outdoor pools, sauna and steam room. All of the well appointed bedrooms are en suite and feature tv, telephone, hairdryer and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.
