These luxury holiday homes enjoy one of the most prestigious residential addresses in Torquay, surrounded on three sides by the sea on Livermead Head, with an easterly outlook over the azure blue waters of the Bay, with Torquay to the north and Paignton and the picturesque fishing port of Brixham to the south. The three towns each offer something different to the visitor – it’s no wonder the English Riviera has been a popular destination with holidaymakers since Victorian times.
Torquay remains very much a seaside resort and its heartbeat is the picturesque harbour. Lined with a good mix of cafes, superb shopping, bars and top-class restaurants, it leads round to Living Coasts, a zoo of the sea featuring wildlife found in Britain’s waters and a new crocodile swamp. Further on are the popular towns and beaches of Babbacome, St Marychurch and Maidencombe.On the south side of the harbour is Princess Theatre and from the nearby Princess Pier you can look across the water to Torre Abbey Sands and around the Bay to the sheltered coves of Meadfoot and the rock pools at Corbyn Head.
