About Us

On the cusp of the Paignton area lies Waterside Holiday Park, with its spectacular views of the South Devon coastline and the English Riviera Bay.

From its elevated position, you will enjoy stunning picture postcard views of the Torbay coastline, and it is close to the fabulous beaches and attractions of the famed English Riviera. Stay at Waterside and you can take a trip to beautiful Goodrington Sands, an award winning Blue Flag beach ideal for swimming and topping up the tan or enjoy the waterslides at Splashdown Quaywest.

There's so many good reasons to spend a holiday or short break at Waterside. Relax in our friendly clubhouse and enjoy a tasty bite to eat. During the day you can also recline on the Sun Terrace, with a drink in hand, while the kids have a splashingly good time in the heated outdoor pool.

Waterside is renowned for its amazing setting, along with the famous Dartmouth Steam Railway that borders the park. With easy access out onto the headland, guests can walk through the tunnel under the Steam Railway to remarkable views of the Torquay coastline and coastal paths great for dog walkers and hiking. It's all here in this ideal Devon location.

The wonderful sights come courtesy of the hillside location so it's not particularly suitable for anyone who struggles with slopes.

The entertainment venue is one of our finest with plenty of room to take in our live shows - you can enjoy a different show every night.
