Traditional British seaside breaks rock

February 12, 2013

I know we’ve done a lot of overseas travel with No 1 Son, but we’ve always made sure he’s experienced the best that Britain has to offer too, particularly with holidays to Devon and Cornwall.

From the glorious beaches and coastline to the cream teas and stunning villages, it’s the perfect setting for a traditional British seaside break. OK, so you can’t guarantee good weather, but there’s a lot to be said for the simple pleasures of a summer holiday in the UK.

They have three parks in this glorious county, all close to wonderful beaches: Ruda (close to Croyde, with its fantastic surfing), Challaborough Bay and Torquay, with a range of accommodation (even some dog-friendly), including some lovely contemporary lodges.

And of course there’s loads to do – you could spend a day at Illfracombe,  drive across Exmoor’s wild terrain, and visit the vibrant resorts of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham. Definitely a family holiday they’ll remember always.
