Family Friendly Holidays
A county of glorious contrasts – from sweeping beaches to wild moorland – Devon is the most popular family friendly holiday destination in the country. Boasting a plethora of theme parks, award winning beaches and plenty of indoor attractions just in case the weather turns a little less clement, the English Riviera region of Torquay, Paignton, Brixham and Babbacombe is still regarded as the jewel in Devon’s crown. And with that typically warm Devonian welcome extended to visitors of every age, Devon remains the top UK destination for family friendly holidays.
The holiday of a lifetime
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 some of the most beautiful countryside in England.
Paignton is home to one of the best zoological parks in the UK, with the emphasis firmly on fun and learning all about conservation. For families with an interest in the sea, why not visit Paignton Zoo’s sister venue ‘Living Coasts’ in Torquay and meet some of Devon’s aquatic residents?
A true taste of Devon
For a true taste of Devon, Brixham has one of the largest working fishing fleets in the UK, and their catch ends up on the plates of local restaurants on the same day, giving you a chance to get a real sense of the region’s strong maritime connection.
Devon has something for everyone, making it one of the liveliest, exciting and beautiful destinations for families of all ages. For family friendly holidays that will be remembered for a lifetime, Devon ticks all the boxes.
