Location

The Hotel De La Mer is ideally situated on the St.Marychurch end of the Babbacombe road.


Only 100m flat walk from the historic Babbacombe Cliff Railway to Oddicombe Beach and 110m from Babbacombe Promenade, the jewel in Torquay's crown, one of Britain's highest promenades.

The beautiful Babbacombe Promenade offers stunning views right across Lyme Bay with Portland Bill being visible on a clear day. For the more energetic there are footpaths from the Promenade leading to Oddicombe and Babbacombe Beaches, both situated in Babbacombe Bay. The beaches offer cafés, boat hire, water sports and fantastic fishing. From the beaches you can take one of the coastal footpaths which offer miles of breathtaking scenery and wildlife.  This stretch is part of the South West Coast Path.

For the less energetic there is the historic Babbacombe Cliff Railway to take you down to Oddicombe Beach, or visit to one of the many pubs, cafés, the fantastic Angels Tea Rooms, or Babbacombe Theatre all situated along the Promenade.

Turn right out of the hotel and you'll find yourself in St. Marychurch, host to a quaint and varied selection of shops, pubs, cafés and churches. Here you will also find Bygones Historical Museum, the famous Babbacombe Model Village and, just around the corner, Torquay Golf Course.

Turn left out of the hotel and you're in Babbacombe. With more great shops, pubs, cafés, restaurants and a church. Still within walking distance is Cary Park, which has a children's play park, bowling green, putting green and tennis courts.

For those looking for peace and quiet look no further than just over the road where you'll find the tranquil and beautiful Tessier Gardens. This is an adults only garden which is tucked away and impeccably maintained, perfect for a lazy afternoon.

A frequent bus service runs from outside the hotel giving you easy access to Torquay's main town centre and fantastic marina. Here you will find a vast array of shops, pubs, clubs, eateries, amusement arcades and, in the summer months, a fun fair. Torquay is surrounded by a host of delightful towns and villages each one unique and special including Cockington, Teignmouth, Shaldon, Dartmouth, Paignton and Brixham to name but a few.

Further afield we have the historical cities of Plymouth and Exeter both making great day trips, or Devon's national park, Dartmoor, giving you a rugged expanse of sublime scenery, villages and wildlife including the famous wild Dartmoor Ponies.
