Adventures in Torquay


I’m very excited. Torquay is a new destination for me, the English Riviera as it is also known and with a stroke of good luck we will have pleasant weather too. We’re going to be staying on a Parkdean site. We chose this for its indoor swimming pool and clubhouse with evening entertainment – including Baby Dance for the girls :)

We’ll be staying in a mobile home or static caravan as it’s otherwise known, a little more comfortable than our camping trip a fortnight ago. In fact we are on one of the infamous Sun Holidays for £9.50 per person. Amazing price isn’t it?

We’ve been on quite a few of these breaks now and thanks to The Sun and their wonderful initiative we’ve been to Cornwall, Devon, South Wales, North Wales, Rye and the Isle of Wight! We’ve even been to Spain with them and discovered the park we stayed at this year in Lake Garda is also part of their fabulous offer!

For £9.50 per person we manage to add another two holidays to our yearly stack and have the pleasure of discovering beautiful places around the UK.

For families they are perfect, there are activities organised to keep the children happy, bars to keep the parents happy, restaurants, take aways and supermarkets on site and the reception is bursting with leaflets advertising all of the local excursions.

On our last vacation to this area our travels took us as far as Lyme Regis so this time we’ll drive further on down the coast and visit Paignton, Brixham and Dartmouth, each resort a thrown back to time past. I also hope to take the girls on their first zoo trip in Paignton.

Anyway, I’m sure we’ll have tons to tell you as the week progresses and photos of the sites we see.
