    Compton Castle

    A delightful small castle and formal garden about four miles out of town. Admittedly not as impressive as other National Trust properties, it is still worth a couple of hours of your time to visit - particularly if you are a National Trust member.

    Located just half a mile from the centre of Torquay, this is three great attractions in one! Cockington is a picturesque traditional Devon village with many historic buildings. Surrounding the village is the award-winning Cockington Country Park, with acres of formal gardens, woodlands and small lakes to explore. Then, within the park is Cockington Court - a sixteenth century manor house that has been converted into a craft center with over twenty studios, an art gallery, tea rooms and children’s play area. And there is no entry fee for any of it!

    Off the beaten track this is a lovely pebbly beach and perfect for a day away from the hustle and bustle of Torquay.

    So lovely and the donkeys are juts lovely. We took two little kids and they really enjoyed themselves!

    The gardens here are stunning! You can loose yourself here for a couple of hours!

    Victorian Times tea and coffee shop

    Lovingly decorated with authentic Victorian furniture and vintage memorabilia, with friendly staff and pleasant classical ambient music, the Victorian Times specialize in a very reasonably priced Victorian high tea that is to die for.

    A cute little cafe with staff who know how to make a perfect cup of both coffee and tea and with a fantastic choice of incredible sweet treats. They also do a full lunch.

    A small, intimate restaurant quaintly decorated with vintage memorabilia. All fish, fowl and red meat is fresh, free-range, locally sourced and cooked to perfection! Only open weekends and well worth booking in advance.

    Beautiful cafe in St Marychurch and really worth visiting! Highly recommend!

    Wow the best steak restaurant we have been to! This place is hidden down a lane but is well worth finding to eat at!

    Agatha Christie's hometown

    The great crime writer Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890. Christie holds the records for both best-selling novelist ever, and the longest running play ever (The Mousetrap), which has been showing continuously in London's West End since 1952.

    Home of the Pudding Eaters

    People who live in Paignton were historically called 'Pudding Eaters', most likely because of a medieval tradition where the town would cook a giant pudding to be distributed to the poor. The practice died out, but has been revived four times since the 1800's, most recently in 2006.
