Holiday Cottages in Paignton
Slap-bang in the middle of the English Riviera, Paignton is probably most famous for its world-class zoo. However, you can’t hang a whole holiday on a trip to see the crocodiles, so booking one of our Paignton Cottages will show you that this charming town has plenty more to offer, whatever your interests.
One of the town’s most famous residents has to be the crime novelist, Agatha Christie. If you’re a fan, be sure to book one of our Paignton Cottages in September, as that’s when the International Agatha Christie Festival comes to town. With authors, artists, would-be-Poirots and Miss Marples all celebrating the Queen of Crime’s life and literature, the whole town transforms into a continual carnival – and there are more Devon cream teas to be had than you can shake a magnifying glass at!
