“Great Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

This is a great seaside town - with Model Village (which we visited last year), Cliff Railway - closed for maintenance this time we went, has a small high street and is very quaint.

“Beautiful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Lovely beach reached by mountainside railway. La Provence french restaurant, gorgeous food and not as expensive as it could have been. Only stayed 2 nights but will go back there.

“Beautiful sea views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

A lovely area of Torbay, Babbacombe has breathtaking views, 280ft high up on cliffs, you can see across a beautiful bay to Teignmouth & Exmouth. Friendly locals (expect to say Good Morning 5+ times when walking along the grass & flowers on the cliffs ;)
During the Summer season, I note that a Cliff train (yes, up and down the Cliff!) is available.
I adore and recommend the Model Village!

“Lovely views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Lovely views from the promonade. Quite alot of free parking. Beautiful, if steep, walk to teh beach - the cliff railway was much valued for the return journey.
