Information
Torquay

The Victorian town of Torquay has remained one of Britain’s favourite holiday retreats since the early 19th century and has grown in size along with its popularity, making it the third largest settlement in Devon. But don’t let that put you off, Torquay has managed to retain much it’s quaint seaside village atmosphere, whilst at the same time embracing 21st Century attitudes and becoming a vibrant continental style town.

With its palm lined promenade and ornamental gardens, bustling harbour and international marina, beautiful beaches and backdrop of seven green hills, one could almost imagine oneself on the French Riviera. Within the town centre the streets are lined with cafes, restaurants and bars that spill onto the pavements. A magnet for the rich and the famous the spectacular harbour is lined with fabulous yachts owned by discerning enthusiasts who appreciate the quality of Torquay’s myriad attractions and sophisticated nightlife.

A truly enchanting place, Torquay oozes excitement and mystery at every turn; from the ghosts of ruthless smugglers and pirates to the list of famous residents including Charles Kingsley and Agatha Christie there is magic everywhere. Is it any wonder it has retained its Victorian title as ‘The Queen of British Resorts.’

Paignton

Dating back to the late 14th century, Paignton really came to the fore during the Victorian holiday boom of the mid 19th Century and today remains one of the finest examples of that era, with its colourful villas, pier, busy harbour, Esplanade and seemingly endless sandy beaches. Today it is a popular holiday destination for surfers and sail boarders, whilst the harbour welcomes countless members of the boating and yachting fraternity who have come the explore the magnificent Devon and Cornish coastline.

As you would expect there is a wealth of accommodation to suit all tastes and pockets. The picturesque town centre has a buzz all of its own and is chock full of excellent shops, fine restaurants, busy bars and cafes. A short walk from the town you’ll discover magnificent unspoilt countryside, worthy of long relaxing after lunch strolls.

For anyone looking for an authentically traditional British seaside holiday, that also satisfies today’s varied tastes, you really can’t go far wrong with Paignton.

Brixham

Deservedly considered to be one of Britain’s most beautiful harbours and working fishing ports, Brixham is situated at the southernmost end of Torbay. Nestled amongst the cliffs the lovely harbour front is a huddle of brightly coloured cottages, shops, restaurants, pubs, cafes and narrow winding streets.

The busy harbour is shared by both the local fishing fleet and leisure craft using the new state of the art marina. A favourite with angling enthusiasts, this busy port offers a vast range of sea fishing opportunities including specialist wreck and shark excursions. And for those with the appetite but not the sea legs there are dozens of stalls and restaurants offering a full range of delicious freshly caught fish and seafood.

A lovely hideaway as well as a relaxing place from which to explore Devon and Cornwall, Brixham is one of the few untarnished jewels to be found along the UK's holiday coastlines.,br>

MDL’s Brixham Marina has now got the Sealift2 which is capable of lifting boats up to 60 foot and 50 tons in about ten minutes.
MDL’s Dartside Quay will be overseeing the procedures, and their manager Shaw Smith said
“The extensive packages on offer will help boat owners get more out of their time spent on board and we can oversee the lifting and all the aspects of maintenance, allowing owners to enjoy their leisure time. We hope to see many berth holders and visitors taking advantage of the new service over the coming months.”
Well done guys.

They told me, a disabled man, to leave or they would 'make me more crippled than i already am' when i complained that they overcharged me, and they would not refund me even though they admitted it was their mistake.
