About PGL Barton Hall, Torquay

Set in 46 acres of the beautiful English Riviera and with views reaching across Torbay, Devon's warm climate, the great activities on offer and our outdoor heated pool have consistently made Barton Hall our most popular family activity centre.

Once a country mansion, this large, family orientated centre has a range of brilliant facilities including a comfortable lounge, family bar, chill out/games room, sun room and more. You can even try a traditional Devon Cream Tea in the Devonshire Bar. A must have treat!

Our large heated outdoor pool is also a hit with families, particularly during the summer months. Make a splash or just relax and watch the kids play, whilst reclining on one of our sun loungers or deckchairs.

At PGL Barton Hall, we’ve got something for everyone - whether you are looking for a short break, week long stay or just an action-packed day out whilst in the local area!

We offer a huge range of awesome on-site activities, from Giant Swing to Zip Wire, Climbing and Raft Building, to name just a few. You can also opt to try skiing or 'ringos' in your ‘flexi-sessions’ when staying at Barton Hall, with the Torquay Alpine Ski Club dry ski slope that adjoins our centre. Pre-booking is required. Please use our contact details shown to enquire.
