Also parking was excessive everywhere in Babbacombe (in... More

This beach has gone massively downhill! It needs a good revamp and a tidy up. I understand that nature has taken its toll and the storms have done some of the damage, but the buildings that were all boarded up just looked shabby.

Walked to Babbacombe. Not far, about 3 miles. Babbacombe probably beautiful in the summer. Unfortunately, we experienced hale stones and rain. Very quiet, not many shops

The Angel Tearooms are on Babbacombe Downs Road looking out over the Downs to the sea. There are rustic tables in the paved courtyard to admire the views when the weather is good. Called Tearooms this wonderful restaurant serves everything from afternoon tea to a 3-course lunch. Though if you fancy the Sunday roast make sure you book, because it... More
