base for our family as we had the choice of visiting the beach on the first day and also experiencing the natural beauty of the Dartmoor National Park which was only 15 miles away from Dawlish. After a pleasant stay at the hotel and recharging our batteries we headed along the coast.


Next stop, Torquay - a bustling seaside town with plenty on offer for all ages. Although it has many modern attractions on offer, Torquay succeeds in retaining much of it's old charm and is unique in it's ability to appeal to the young and hip with it's vibrant night-life whilst also catering for the more mature with it's plethora of hotels offering special themed weekend breaks with courses on anything from cookery and wine to health and beauty. Torquay is also dubbed the English Riviera owing to it's comparably mild climate and even boasts tropical plantation including Palm Trees giving it a decidedly Mediterranean feel!


All in all, our visit to the west county turned out to be a very relaxing and pleasant break despite the weather. We found the accommodation and the tourist attractions were well geared up for anything that the English weather could throw at them and all were able to cater for all visitors from the couple looking for quiet getaway to a week-long break for even the most demanding family!

Torquay a decidedly Mediteranean feel
