Views at Babbacombe

Beautiful views along a dramatic part of the coast. Worth a visit just to soak in the scenery. A must.

We visited here twice this year. Its a bit like stepping back in time. The place is soo pretty. Lots of places to eat or have picnics. Beaches are all beautiful, sea soo blue, clean and child friendly.

Stayed at the Babbacombe Hotel for a short break with my 6 yr old grandaughter. Had a wonderful time. The Babbacombe Theatre was excellent, very professional and well worth the money. The great gem was the Oddicombe Beach, it had everything there, cafe, trampolines, Ice creams, clean toilets - excellent beach (less seaweed than Torquay beach) and a fantastic railway... More

Stunning views from the Downs here, a lovely, airy, promenade. Interesting funicular railway to beach is worth a visit too. We stayed at Sunningdale Apartments (a bit mixed TBH) in Babbacombe. Local fish and chip shops are very good too, worth seeking out.

On a nice day this seaside resort is beautiful. You can amble along the green on the cliff top, eat in one of the bars or cafes along there or take the cliff railway down to the beach. There is also a small and comfortable theatre showing family variety shows throughout the summer. A lovely place to stay if you... More

We received a parking fine June 2015 and also my parents on the same day for not realising the car park did not belong to the Model Village. I appealed to Torbay Council as we did not intentionally avoid paying but they rejected this. After visiting the Torbay area regularly for 50 years, this will probably the last time.The parking...
