    About this property

    Rippon Tor lies just a few hundred yards from the beautiful, sheltered Maidencombe Beach.
    Set on the coastal road, just 600 yards above the sheltered Maidencombe Beach and the village’s pretty thatched inn, Devon Palms (refs 30273, 30274, 30275, 30276, UKC1922, UKC1923, UKC1924, UKC1925, UKC1926 and UKC1927) are ideal for couples who enjoy walking or just a relaxing break. Set in the grounds of the owner’s home, this complex of terraced apartments is an ideal holiday base. The properties are decorated and furnished to a good standard. Across the road and down the hill, is the lovely sheltered beach, which is complete with a café, and if you fancy climbing the rocks, you will see some fantastic views across the ocean. Take in some of the stunning Torbay coastline, walk from beach to beach past beautiful cliffs and rolling hills, and enjoy some of the best coastal walks in Devon.
    Torquay is a very popular and historic town with a huge variety of things to see and do. The town centre is only 4 miles away, offering plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants. Like most of the towns in the area, Torquay is situated right on the coast, and the main town is just a few minutes away from the nearest beach - Torre Abbey Sands. There are eight other beaches around Torquay, all with unique views across the bay. The town itself is bursting with history, being the birthplace of the famous murder mystery writer Agatha Christie. It also has beautiful ancient caves containing a variety of interesting fossils, World War II slipways in the harbour and Torre Abbey, which was built in 1166 and is the largest surviving medieval monastery in Devon and Cornwall. And of course, who can forget the role Torquay played in the famous comedy Fawlty Towers.
    The South West Coastal Path from Watcombe in Torquay to Maidencombe is a favourite spot for local walkers. This walk has a little bit of everything - from woods and open fields, to beaches, coastal scenery and rare wildlife. Two of the English Riviera’s top attractions can be found in nearby Babbacombe; Bygones Victorian Street and Babbacombe Model Village. Paignton Zoo is a great day out for everyone, and is home to thousands of amazing animals and plants. Situated on the mouth of the River Teign, Shaldon is an unspoilt village, with a thriving livelihood based on the estuary. No visit to the area would be complete without indulging in traditional cream teas. Torquay has a lot to offer, there is the Living Coasts where penguins wander freely, the theatre which has shows all year round, or take a ferry across to Brixham, to sample the fresh fish and seafood. Don’t miss a trip to Dartmoor to climb one of the tors, or just take in the beauty and travel across the moor to Tavistock, where there is some dramatic scenery. The apartments are just 22 miles from Exeter city centre. Golf available 2 miles away. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 600 yards.

    "Lovely couple, clean room. Room noisy as stairs run along side of bedroom and you could hear families upstairs walking/running about. Although we did appreciate this is because of the unusual design of building.Would stay again"
