Being situated on the coast, there are any number of companies offering water sports, including coasteering and kayaking, and boat trips out to sea or along the coast are a fabulous way of getting a different perspective on the area.

The steam train that runs from Paignton is a lovely way to relax and see the scenery. There are golf courses, swimming pools, and sports centres, and the zoo in Paignton is one of the best in England.

Walking in the footsteps of Torquay’s very own Agatha Christie is perfectly possible, either by enjoying the viewpoints along the 1-mile Agatha Christie Trail in the town, or by visiting the National Trust run property, Greenway, that served as her holiday home from 1938.

Cockington, tucked back from the coast up a beautifully wooded valley.  Charming thatched cottages, walking trails through the pretty parkland, and the Cockington Estate with its craft shops and ancient church make this is an appealing place to spend at least half a day.
