About Us

The Parks is located in one of the very few level areas of Torquay, in a convenient position within each reach of one of the pleasant parks that surround the famous Torre Abbey. We are only 300 metres from the beaches at Torre Abbey Sands (0.5 miles), Corbyn Sands (0.6 miles) and Livermead (0.9 miles) and we are ideally located within a level 3-minute stroll (0.3 miles) of Torquay Railway Station. There is good access to the local bus services including the Stagecoach No 12 which stops along Torbay Road in Torquay and travels to the neighbouring towns of Paignton (2.2 miles) and Brixham (7.6 miles).

The Park is a small, family-run guest house situated in the heart of the English Riviera. There is plenty of onsite free parking for guests as well as some spaces on the nearby streets.

We offer a mix of spacious single, twin, double, triple and family rooms providing great quality at great prices. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, tea and coffee-making facilities including fresh milk, TVs with digital channels, DVD players, digital radios, an electric shaving point, ironing facilities and free Wi-Fi access. Our family room on the first floor is very spacious and can sleep up to 4.  We do not accept children under the age of 5 without prior arrangement and we offer a 33% discount for children aged 5 to 11 years who share a room with their parents.

We have guest rooms located on the ground, first and second floors with many overlooking the pretty front garden, patio and park with great views. There is a separate lounge that guests can use to relax and enjoy. Our ground floor room is suitable for guests with limited mobility.

We also have a lovely, heated outdoor pool which is open from April to October and is available for guests to enjoy. The English Riviera’s mild climate is perfect for swimming, sunbathing, walking and rambling. The South West Coast Path can be easily accessed from The Parks. The entire path is 630 miles long and runs from Somerset to Cornwall and weaves its way through the English Riviera from Babbacombe in Torquay to Paignton and Brixham.  

The Parks is open all year and we are a great choice if you for attending conferences at the nearby Riviera International Conference Centre (0.4 miles) as well as annual events such as English Riviera Air Show, Torbay Royal Regatta and England’s Seafood FEAST. Local, seasonal sporting events including Torquay United’s national league football matches, Torbay Half Marathon and Torbay Easter Hockey Festival to name just a few, take place on our doorstep. 

Our prices include a delicious breakfast served each morning and we can cater for vegetarian diets so please let us know if you have a special request.

The English Riviera’s 22 miles of breath-taking coastline has received designated UNESCO Global Geopark status, one of only 7 geoparks in the UK and 140 in the whole world.  The area’s dramatic scenery, rich cultural heritage and incredible local geology with rocks formed millions of years ago provides a fascinating backdrop to explore the area. Discover some of the Global Geopark key sites across Devon’s Beautiful Bay including Kents Cavern prehistoric caves (2.4 miles), Berry Head National Nature Reserve (9 miles), Torquay Museum (1.5 miles) and Cockington Court and Country Park (1.4 miles).    

The Parks is a great choice for a break on the English Riviera, any time of the year.
