A really lovely surprise , a lovely little village and quaint shops and houses . The cricket green and the gardens were so well tended and we enjoyed the shop that various artists and crafts people can display goods.

We visited this country park as we had read reviews of the Devonshire Tea and we were not disappointed. There were lovely walks around the village which had many thatched roofs, shops and working workshops. Lovely trip out.

Came on the bus fom Torquay, and walked around the village, quite spread out. Saw the water wheel. Most of the houses are tourist shops or tea shops, it killed an hour, not much of interest, or did we miss it?

Pity most of the craft workers were not working on the day we visited, and the cafe was closed for refurbishment, otherwise it was lovely and quaint.

Not as far as we know, but there is a single decker bus disguised as a little train, which goes through the streets from the beach,past Torre Abbey. Cannot say exact route but you will be able to ask in Torquay.
