The Redholme is within a reasonable distance of everything you need to see and do in Torbay.
We are within a 5 minute walk to the harbourside where you can catch all sorts of buses around the Bay. There are open topped bus sightseeing tours and buses to Paignton where you can catch the steam train to Kingswear or get off at Greenway Halt and visit the home of crime writer Dame Agatha Christie.
The harbour has "Living Coasts", our aquatic zoo with penguins.
There are ferries to Dartmouth, Brixham and now Teignmouth, or boats out to spot dolphins and other wildlife around the Torbay coastline.
Or just head off fishing!
We are 2 minutes walk from Torquay Museum and a 5 minute bus ride to Kents Cavern.
A quick bus ride takes you up to Babbacombe, with its famous model village, Oddicombe Beach, Bygones Museum with its historic street and Babbacombe Downs with its breathtaking views. The Babbacombe Cliff Railway takes you down to Oddicombe beach where there is bar/bistro "3 Degrees West" or take the short coast path walk to The Cary Arms and enjoy a fresh crab sandwich sitting out on their cliff terrace enjoying views across to the Jurassic Coast.
Dartmouth has its quaint little shops and galleries with tea shops and restaurants and boat trips up the River Dart.
Brixham has a beautiful harbour with lots of coloured houses and a replica of Sir Walter Raleigh's "The Golden Hind". It's also got great fish and chips!
A short drive by car takes you to Dartmoor. Princetown has the prison, with it's museum and brewery, and there are many walks across the moors for all abilities. Or just relax in one of the pubs instead!
There are many beaches and coves to explore.
Torre Abbey Beach is a gentle 20 minute walk from The Redholme.
Goodrington Sands Beach is a bus or car ride away and well worth the effort. The tide never reaches the top and the steam train line runs right alongside you.
Meadfoot Beach is close, and has great rock pools.
Anstey's Cove is very sheltered, perfect for a Poirot murder!
