Why everyone is heading to the English Riviera
The idea of a chic resort break is a dream for many, conjuring up images of palm-studded marinas and swanky yachts moored in the harbour… You might imagine Cannes, Nice, or St Tropez, but there’s really no need to head across the channel – the timeless glamour of Torquay affords all this and more, right on our very own coastline.

Autumn Spa: Fall In Love With Thermal Treatments
Crisp air, whirling leaves and the cold crunch of the first frosts. Like Halloween and Bonfire Night, late autumn has a bewitching magic.
