The Essentials

It’s best to br prepared with a few essential items before arriving on site. Depending on your type of stay you may need some basic supplies such as; food, drink, toiletries and so on!

A Plan

It’s always a good idea to have a plan, so you can fit as much excitement as possible into one day! Planning your day to day trips and activities will make your South Devon experience even better! Don’t worry there’s plenty you can do; including visiting our local beaches, saying hi to the animals at Paignton Zoo or even having a look around Torbay’s very own Model Village!

Take a look for many more ideas of the best Devon attractions, beaches and places to visit.

The South Devon climate is mild but even If its raining, we have this covered. Check out some of our top rainy day activities on the English Riviera.


Bucket & Spade

No seaside holiday is complete without a trip to our amazing award winning blue flag beaches; Goodrinton, Paignton and Broadsands beaches are only a short walk/drive away from our holiday park. The classic bucket and spade, ball games and beach inflatables is a necessity to enhance your sunny beach days!

Swim Wear

We know that this is top of most peoples list, but swim wear is extremely important to remember if you’re planning to use our indoor and outdoor swimming pools or even when taking a trip to our local beaches to have a paddle. Don’t forget your spare clothes or beach towel either!


Some Loose Change

it’s almost impossible avoiding the ice cream hut or local shops whilst out exploring so having a few pounds spare will add some extra excitement to your day trip!

Take a look around Paignton Pier on our local beach which has arcades, fun games for older kids and small rides for toddlers.

Feeling peckish? We’re located in an area known as England’s seafood coast and you can enjoy freshly caught seafood straight from the sea to your plate. You can’t also beat the smell of the seaside whilst tucking into some fish & chips with the feel of the sand between your toes looking out across the sea.



Beverley Holidays has a number of great on site pre bookable activities and evening entertainment however, it’s always a good idea to bring some of your own entertainment with you just in case! Indoor activities are always fun so why not bring some board games, cards or movies in case of a rainy day. It’s also a good idea to bring outside games such as a football or even a rounders kit, for some competitive family fun!
