Paignton, Torbay & The English Riviera

Paignton, Torbay & The English Riviera





6 Days from £482


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.

One of our most popular hotels, 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.
