One of the best areas of Torquay - should not be missed. Angels tearoom has the best cream tea - warm scone, clotted cream and two 'homemade' jams. Delicious

Beautiful scenery, good local shops, Model Village and the beach are really close by. Hanburys fish and chips are to die for, and of the Himalayan is in the Main Street. Ideal area for anyone wanting a picturesque break.
