About the neighbourhood
We are perfectly located to explore both the beaches & attractions of the English Riveria; Torquay, Paignton & Brixham. At the same time we are in the right spot to give good access to the South Devon ANOB & Dartmoor National Park.
Getting around
We advise having a car to get the best out of your stay at Blagdon House Country Cottages. The nearest bus is about a 10 minute walk, although this is an un-lit country lane with no pavement. We are in a rural location with fields & tranquillity around us yet we are centrally located to explore the area & only 2 miles from the beaches of Torquay & the English Riveria. We are 4 miles from the main line rail station at Totnes or 2 miles from the branch line at Paignton. Paignton station is the departure point for the popular 'round robin' day trip - the steam train to Dartmouth then the river ferry to Totnes & back to Paignton on the open-top bus with views to Dartmoor National Park.
