Holidays on the English Riviera aren't just about having fun with the family. For couples looking for a romantic getaway this Valentine's Day, South Devon offers a wealth of boutique boltholes, charming cottages and secluded spots where you can enjoy being together.
Surrounded by spectacular countryside and wide, sandy beaches, the English Riviera towns of Torquay, Paignton, Brixham and the village of Babbacombe provide plenty of opportunity for romance. Rekindle the romance in your relationship by just spending a little time together in peaceful, tranquil surroundings, or party the night away at one of the many nightclubs and bars across the region.
Tying the knot in Torquay
But if you want to take the romance a stage further, why not get married in the English Riviera? A warm microclimate means that even January brides have a great chance of some sunshine on their special day. Torquay and the surrounding area offers plenty of opportunity for a stylish wedding in beautiful surroundings, whether that's a church ceremony or getting married in the opulent splendour of our Registry Office in the stunning Oldway Mansion in Paignton. With a sweeping marble staircase for a grand bridal entrance and surrounded by spectacular gardens, the Mansion is an idyllic location in which to have that perfect fairytale wedding.
Romantic breaks away
If you just want to spend time with the one you love, the English Riviera has everything you need. From sumptuous restaurants for candle-lit dinners through to secluded cottages complete with roses around the door, South Devon will bring the romantic out in anyone. And it doesn't have to be a Valentine's Day break away – part of the joy of romance is surprising the one you love so why not book a spur of the moment break any time during the year? What could be more romantic than a long walk together through autumn leaves and then curling up in front of a roaring fire together? With so many fabulous locations to choose from and to suit all budgets, a romantic break needn't cost a fortune but the memories will be treasured for a lifetime.
