    Take a Wellie Walk

Even though the sun is shining, the ground can be wet under foot, and who doesn’t love a good splash about in a muddy puddle! Whether you prefer to stroll on the beach, or trek the coast road, Torquay has 22 miles of stunning coast line for you to explore.

    A Traditional Devonshire Cream Tea

    A longstanding tradition between Devon and Cornwall, is to bicker about which order the cream and jam go on a scone! Pull up a chair, rest your weary bones, take a sip of beautiful hot tea, and enjoy your scone the Devonshire way, relaxed and with the cream first, then the sticky strawberry jam!

    Occoombe Farm

    Spring is one of the best times to visit the Farm, come and see the birth of new life as the lambing seasons begins, and sample the local Devonshire produce in the farm shop. If you are feeling more energetic, spend an afternoon meandering around the rolling green Devon farm lands.

A Ferry to Brixham taking as little as just 35 minutes, you will be supporting local business’ with the added benefit of leaving the car parked up all day!

    After Dark
