Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 7
Paignton, English Riviera, Devon, England
This very well furnished and equipped accommodation is ideal for families seeking a quiet, peaceful environment in which to relax and unwind. It has an attractive, mature garden for al fresco dining and a balcony, accessed via french windows off the master bedroom, with lovely views over Torbay and the sea.

There is plenty to see and do locally, with a lively town centre for shopping and evenings out in the bars and restaurants. Paignton Zoo, Paignton to Dartmouth Steam Railway and Agatha Christie's holiday home are a short drive away. For the more energetic, the coastal path offers spectacular scenery all the way from Paignton to Kingswear and beyond. Torbay caters for everyone.

About the neighbourhood
Torbay, on the English Riviera, has a superb coastline with secluded sandy beaches and coves. The nearest beach to this property, Goodrington, has many amenities for the family, with two sandy bays and rock pools to explore. Nearby is Young's Park and a family pub/restaurant, overlooking the sea. There are beautiful seafront gardens (floodlit in the evening) and a cliff walk leading over to the harbour. Various boat trips to Brixham, Torquay or fishing off the wrecks, can be booked from here.

A ten minute drive away is the private holiday home of the world famous author, Agatha Christie and her family.
The delightful gardens sweeping down to the River Dart, overlooking Dartmouth, have been open for many years, but the house has just opened this spring after major restoration work....
