Enjoying the English Riviera at Landscombe Holiday Park, Devon

With winter set to bite hard this January, we’re all daydreaming of sunshine and summer, when you can take the kids away for a beach break.

With an unusually mild climate and long, sandy beaches, there’s a good reason why the 22 miles of Devonshire coast around Torbay has been dubbed the ‘English Riviera’. Here’s tips for exploring this illustrious piece of British coastline.

Discover the delights of Devon

There’s so much to see and do on the English Riviera. Whether you explore the sandy coastline between Torquay Harbour and Berry Head Nature Reserve, or venture inland to one of the many attractions, there’ll be something for the whole family to enjoy.

Kids will love Babbacombe Model Village, the Dartmouth Otter Sanctuary and nearby Paignton Zoo, while adults can explore the historic Kents Tavern, or indulge themselves in the old haunts of all-time-bestselling crime writer Agatha Christie – a one-time occupant of the area.

Find an ideal base and begin your adventure

Landscove Holiday Park sits on a lofty vantage point, boasting panoramic sea views from the verdant surroundings of Berry Head. Accommodating 4 – 8 in elegant chalets, the park has a huge range of attractions for the whole family: from indoor and outdoor heated pools, kids’ clubs and game zone for the little ones, to bingo, bars and the Ocean Club for adults.

Devon Bay Holiday Park overlooks the sandy expanse of Paignton Beach and is within easy walking distance of a host of amenities and attractions. Accommodating up to six in comfy, caravan-style holiday homes, kids can enjoy both indoor and outdoor heated pools, as well as crazy golf and an adventure playground. Meanwhile, adults can take advantage of the spa and gym facilities, or simply relax at the onsite restaurant and entertainment area.
