Paignton - The Haldon Guest House

Posted: 26th June 2013

Long sandy beaches, first class attractions, a vibrant atmosphere and a great place to stay are all the essential ingredients for a perfect getaway holiday – and Paignton has them all – THE great place to be beside the sea! 

The Haldon Guest House is just 5 minutes from the train/bus station and 3 minutes level walk to Paignton’s sandy beach with safe bathing and ideal sand for making sandcastles. Paignton Pier where many family fun days are spent - bring along your 2p’s for the amusement arcades! You can hire a bicycle or a tandem, a pedalo, take a fishing trip from the nearby harbour or just relax and enjoy an ice cream and the sunshine in a deckchair.

Paignton Green, just before the beach, is where many events are held during the summer months to include Torbay Carnival, Paignton Regatta and Children’s Week. There are donkey rides and a Geo Play Park, designed around the English Riviera’s geological history – it includes a zip wire, climbing hut, and spinner bowls to name but a few….. And it’s free!

There is a multiplex cinema nearby showing the most up-to-date films. You can travel back in time aboard ‘Barnaby’, a 1947 vintage bus that leaves next to the green and will take you on an authentic ride to Greenway, Agatha Christie’s holiday home on the banks of the River Dart. 

Public transport is easily accessible and can take you to Paignton Zoo, Living Coast and many family theme parks. So what are you waiting for?
