Devon - Paignton

Paignton is a coastal town in Devon in England. Together with Torquay and Brixham it forms the unitary authority of Torbay which was created in 1998. The Torbay area is a holiday destination known as the English Riviera. Paignton's population in the United Kingdom Census of 2001 was 48,251. It has origins as a Celtic settlement and was first mentioned in 1086. It grew as a small fishing village and a new harbour was built in 1847. A railway line was opened to passengers in 1859 creating links to Torquay and London. As its population increased, it merged with the villages of Goodrington and Preston.
Paignton beach and the nearby Preston Sands are used for water sports including kite surfing and dinghy sailing. The reed beds found at Broadsands beach are a haunt of the rare Cirl Bunting. Hollicombe beach features a geological stratotype at its northern end, known as the "Corbyn's Head Member" Elberry Cove is used by jetski enthusiasts, while Saltern Cove is a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to its distinctive geology.

'Our extensive cottage refurbishment programme is now complete, the last of the paint brushes and fabric swatches were laid to rest after the finishing touches were applied to Lambs Gate early April, 2008, although there is continual updating and improvement.

The couple live in the main farmhouse, managing a team of domestic and angling staff, and acting as point of contact for all your holiday requirements. "It's a wonderful place to live," says Yvonne, "although we always wish we had more time to enjoy it!" Simon & Yvonne want you have an excellent holiday experience.
