Explore Babbacombe

Welcome to Babbacombe Bay on Devon’s English Riviera!  In 1846, Queen Victoria wrote: 'It's a beautiful spot... red cliffs and rocks with wooded hills like Italy and reminding one of a ballet or play where nymphs appear — such rocks and grottoes, with the deepest sea on which there was no ripple.'  Over 150 years later, it still feels the same as you stand and look across the beautiful bay.

The delightful gardens at Babbacombe Downs have attained the prestigious Green Flag award, an international accolade recognising the high environmental standards, excellent visitor facilities and maintenance of the site.       

A holiday here in the UNESCO accredited English Riviera Global Geopark is filled with all the ingredients for a magical break – great beaches, wonderful coast path walks, fantastic attractions, exhilarating watersports, a showstopping theatre and fresh local fish and seafood to tempt your tastebuds.  Babbacombe offers all the beauty of the English Riviera without the hustle and bustle of the larger resorts like Torquay and Paignton.

In fact, a break here at any time of year is the perfect way to relax and unwind, whether you stay in one of the cosy fishermen’s cottages or family-run hotels, there’s something to suit all tastes and budgets.  It’s also the perfect place for dog-lovers with never ending, spectacular coastal walks and the friendliest doggy-Devon welcome.
