5 Day Good Companions Holiday

Torquay has an enviable seafront, beautiful beaches and stylish marina. As part of the English Riviera, this graceful South Devon town has been accredited by UNESCO as a Global Geopark in recognition of its astonishing landscape and geology. Perhaps visit Torre Abbey, a monastery founded in 1196 with art galleries and an Agatha Christie inspired Potent Plants Garden. Perhaps visit the Torquay Museum with its exhibition dedicated to Agatha Christie or the Princess Pier promenade where the famous author roller-skated in her youth. Elsewhere, you might like to explore awardwinning Babbacombe Model Village where you’ll find miniature houses and people displayed with a splash of humour and a soupçon of history.

Overview

Torquay has an enviable seafront, beautiful beaches and stylish marina. As part of the English Riviera, this graceful South Devon town has been accredited by UNESCO as a Global Geopark in recognition of its astonishing landscape and geology. Perhaps visit Torre Abbey, a monastery founded in 1196 with art galleries and an Agatha Christie inspired Potent Plants Garden. Perhaps visit the Torquay Museum with its exhibition dedicated to Agatha Christie or the Princess Pier promenade where the famous author roller-skated in her youth. Elsewhere, you might like to explore awardwinning Babbacombe Model Village where you’ll find miniature houses and people displayed with a splash of humour and a soupçon of history.

Your Excursions

Dawlish & Teignmouth 

Dawlish has a bustling town centre and a fantastic, long sandy beach from where you can take boat trips around the bay. Teignmouth boasts a traditional Victorian pier, a pleasant promenade, lido, pretty parks and a heritage centre.

Buckfast Abbey, Buckfast Butterfly Farm & Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary 

Buckfast Abbey is a splendid Benedictine Monastery where you can explore the impressive abbey and themed gardens, browse the gift shop and have a bite to eat in the restaurant. From here, we head to nearby Buckfast Butterfly Farm & Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary. Here you can view tropical butterflies within a rainforest atmosphere and watch the antics of the playful otters in their reservation.
