Autumn Breaks and Halloween in Torquay

Halloween in Torquay 2016

The leaves on the trees are falling, the weather has turned a bit colder but Autumn is most definitely one of my favourite seasons and it appears my returning guests would agree as we continue to see an increase in people heading to the Devon coast for a pre Christmas escape.

Torquay is famous for being a great Summer location but it is beautiful all year round with breathtaking landscapes that change on a daily basis. I do a very similar walk most days which is around the Meadfoot area but it feels like the walk is...

Day Trip To Brixham

Torquay to Brigham Ferry - Day Out

Brixham has truly undergone a phenominal change in recent times and after hearing such glowing reviews from not only friends, family and our extended family (our guests at the hotel) I thought it was time to return to Brixham for a look around. 

After a busy Bank Holiday weekend in the hotel it was the perfect time to head down to Torquay harbour and catch the ferry to Brixham. If the weather plays it part it is truly the best way to get to Brixham with a return ticket costing just £3.00. That was no typo -...

Golf in Torquay and Devon

Golf and the standard of Golf Courses in Devon and in the Torbay area continues to impress and improve year on year. I believe that the standard of the nearby courses and professionalism in which they are run ranks highly with the best courses and golfing areas in the UK. I have always grown up with golf as it has always been the main sport in our family, also not surprising when your father is a well respected qualified PGA Golf Professional.

We hope this blog post will serve as a good place to start when researching your upcoming...

Rugby World Cup 2015 - Exeter - Devon

Following a couple of my blog entries last year and earlier this year the Rugby World Cup is almost here and the excitement is building throughout Devon and the UK as a whole. 30 minutes down the road the historic City of Exeter is proud to be hosting three of the matches for Rugby World Cup 2015 at Sandy Park (the home of the Exeter Chiefs)

I wasn’t sure how the World Cup would effect tourism in my town of Torquay but interest in late September and early October has been phenomenal as many Rugby fans take...
