The UK south Devon coastline is something that once seen, is never forgotten. A superb location for access to the many fabulous beaches, attractions and facilities of the area is The Osborne at Meadfoot Beach on the outskirts of Torquay. Set in a beautiful Regency building, you are able to enjoy the historic, yet well equipped and furnished accommodation on offer, with ample car parking, both an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, an all weather tennis court, two restaurants, putting green and health suite, which includes a solarium. The self catering apartments are all individually decorated and maintained to a high standard, enjoying RCI Gold Crown status, whilst also being available to the general public to rent.

The Dartmoor National Park is right on the doorstep, famous for its beauty and wildness, as well as its ponies, granite tors, walks and trails. Visiting this place makes a wonderful day out for all the family, as you can take in the fresh air on the high moors and then sample village life in some of the quaint Devon villages nearby. Whilst visiting the moor, you can sample the Dartmoor Miniature Pony and Animal Farm, which has more than 150 animals including the miniature ponies, donkeys, pigs, lambs, goats, birds and rabbits. You can take in the lakes and enjoy al fresco living in the picnic area or perhaps in the caf. Once again, this is great family entertainment.

Situated a stone's throw from The Osborne is Babbacombe Model Village which is a long founded attraction that has kept the young enchanted for many years. The incredible detail of this expansive attraction makes it one of the finest model villages to be seen.

For those feeling more adventurous, there is the Quaywest Wet and Wild leisure park, which is located at Goodrington and is easy to get to, with plenty of parking. The water is heated to 27 degrees Celcius, so is always warm. There are a plethora of activities for the children, including a fun pool, swimming pool tube slides, submarine play zone, free fall slide, body slides, tube slides and a triple drop slide.

To anyone interested in history and architecture, there is Cockington, which is a true medieval village that was mentioned in the Doomsday Book. It is a thatched village that is one of the most photographed in the UK, as the entire village is thatched, which includes the toilets! Things to do include the horse and carriage rides, tea rooms, a court and a beautiful thatched pub located in an area of lakes and woodland.

The House of Marbles, located at Bovey Tracy, is a working glass and games factory that is housed in an historic pottery. Anyone visiting can watch the glass blowing, with the items produced being fired in the listed kilns. There is a factory seconds shop, coffee shop with licensed restaurant, marble runs and a museum piece.
