We offer delicious hot and continental breakfast and can cater for vegetarian diets. There are many eating places close by for lunch snacks and evening meals with Abbey Sands complex housing fine-dining bistros, coffee shops and national restaurant chains. The area is also known as England’s Seafood Coast, home to the UK’s finest seafood and world-famous Brixham Fish Market, where over £40 million worth of fish is landed and sold at auction each year.

The Newburgh is close to the districts of Torre and St Marychurch for independent shops, supermarkets and cafes.  There is an 18-hole golf course nearby at Torquay Golf Club as well as adventure golf, pitch and putt, bowling greens and tennis courts near to Torre Abbey Meadows.  For night time entertainment Genting Casino in Abbey Road is a short 5-minute walk (0.4 miles) and Torquay harbour hosts popular wine and cocktail bars and lively nightclubs. There are 5 English Riviera theatres showcasing a range of local amateur productions, live music performances and West end touring shows. 

Torquay is the birthplace of Agatha Christie, the world’s most famous female crime writer and there are many places with connections to her life and work.  Torquay Museum is home to the country’s only dedicated Agatha Christie gallery (1.2 miles) and the ‘Agatha Christie Mile’ is a must for fans. The one-mile self-guided walking trail celebrates the area’s connection to the ‘Queen of Crime’ and leads you to 12 places of interest and seven plaques to find along the way.

The English Riviera is home to some of the best visitor attractions in the South West including  Paignton Zoo (4.5 miles);  The Real Crime Museum and The Escape Room which are all located on Torquay Harbourside (1 mile).

The area has designated UNESCO Global Geopark status for its outstanding landscape which is of unique geological interest. It is a place where you can touch a very special part of the Earth’s story and be amazed by the extraordinary landscapes, mountains, coastlines, places and people.
