Whether you’re after some fresh air, ocean views or a visit to a delightful independent cafe full of sweet treats this bank holiday weekend, Babbacombe has it all. Home to our stunning Babbacombe development, we’ve compiled our top recommendations for the long weekend ahead.

Angels Tea Rooms

There is nothing better than a lazy afternoon spent by the seaside, and this idyllic tea room is the perfect setting to enjoy a tasty treat. Why not kick off the long weekend with a traditional afternoon tea at the Angels Tea Rooms. You can even swap the tea for prosecco with their Sparkling Cream Tea if you are in the mood for bubbles. Cheers!

Babbacombe Model Village

Looking for an activity that is fun for all the family? The Babbacombe Model Village is set in four acres of land and home to award-winning gardens showcasing hundreds of model scenes, vehicles and people. 

With gardens to explore, a miniature world to discover plus a café and gift shop on site, this is the perfect day trip for your bank holiday weekend.

The Royal Terrace Gardens

If you are keen to get out in the fresh air this weekend, why not visit the Royal Terrace Gardens and explore the coastline of the English Riviera from a more unusual viewpoint?

Known locally as Rock Walk, the terrace is situated beneath the towering cliff of Waldon Hill, which overlooks the sea front and is one of the Wonders of Torquay. Rock Walk is a network of paths with Mediterranean planting throughout and, from here, you are also greeted with magnificent views of the Princess Gardens, the Harbour and as far away as Berry Head.

See if you can spot the English Riviera Wheel!
