Child Friendly Matters

The English Riviera situated on the South Devon coast is very proud of being such a fantastic child friendly year round seaside resort offering a great choice of attractions places to eat and places to stay for all the family.

We know how stressful it can be travelling round with young children so we are delighted to be working with a small local company called Child Friendly Matters who are really passionate about making a positive difference and who have introduced a new Child Friendly accreditation scheme.

All of the businesses listed below have been accredited with the new Child Friendly Accreditation and have been inspected and approved for providing all the little things that really matter including:

Baby changing facilities with good hygiene practices

Children’s meal options with a wide variety of choices and sizes which are appropriately priced

Activities to occupy children and give parents the chance to enjoy their visit;

Educated staff that are able to assist parents and recognise when to do so

Look out for the new Child Friendly Matters Green Star - it means that you can be assured of a family friendly experience on the English Riviera.

With a choice of family friendly hotels, bed and breakfast accommodation, top quality camping and caravan sites and some of the best self catering in the country, you and your family can have the holiday of a lifetime on the English Riviera. Torquay is a family’s dream, with plenty for the little ones to see and do including both indoor and outdoor activity centres, a safe, clean and sandy beach (that officially has the best sand in the UK for building sandcastles!) and lots of opportunities for the adults to relax while the children have fun. All of this is surrounded by beautiful Devon countryside.
