Property Hunting in Torquay

Torquay Harbour


From a short break in Torquay to a long term relocation.

It is surprising how many people first encounter Torquay and The English Riviera in a short break, then go on to fall in love with the area and finally choose to relocate to this wonderful part of south Devon.

House prices are lower than in many other parts of the country and as a result the dream home in Torbay is much more affordable. A new lifestyle also beckons with the superb coastal landscape, a mild climate, low levels of crime and good local schools.

House hunting also requires patience and may take a number of goes before that perfect property is secured. Self catering holiday apartments make the perfect cost effective bases from which to explore the local area. They offer better value for money than hotels, much more space than cramped B&B bedrooms and a lot more privacy.
