Torquay is a seaside resort town on the English Channel in Devon. Known for beaches such as Babbacombe and cliffside Oddicombe, its coastline is nicknamed the English Riviera. Torquay Harbour near the town centre offers shops, cafes and a marina. Torre Abbey, a monastery founded in 1196, has art galleries and extensive gardens featuring plants from local native Agatha Christie's novels.
The Headland Hotel & Spa is an elegant hotel situated in one of the most beautiful parts of Torquay on the English Riveriera, sitting majestically on the headland looking out to sea. It is set in 2 acres of magnificent grounds and offers stunning views across Torbay. With this in mind it is hardly surprising the hotel is Torbay's highest rating 3 star hotel.
With a morning departure we will make our way to Torquay with comfort stops en route arriving at our hotel mid-afternoon.
Today we visit Dartmouth, which is a tourist destination set on the western bank on the estuary of the River Dart, with its famous Naval College, fine 18th century architecture and glorious riverside location. You may like to browse the narrow shopping streets or take a stroll alongside the busy river. In the afternoon we will visit Buckfast Abbey, which offer visitors a tranquil refuge from the hectic pace of everyday life. The Abbey is a working Monastery where a community of Benedictine Monks live self-sufficiently, welcoming visitors from around the world.
A day of leisure to relax and explore Torquay at your own pace.
After a leisurely breakfast we make our way home with comfort stops on route.
