It’s not actually that difficult to get a picture-postcard view when staying on the Devon coastline, but some are just so pristine we reckon you’ll have the Facebook photo uploaded before you’ve even unpacked. And so it is at Paignton’s Waterside Holiday Park, set on a hillside overlooking the Torbay coastline on the English Riviera.
Waterside – unsurprisingly, given the name – is also one of the most sea-faring sites in the region, with clifftop access to the sands of Saltern Cove between the popular beaches of Goodrington and Broadsands and with seaside and clifftop walking, watersports and fishing all nearby. Or you and the kids might prefer to dip your toes on site at the heated outdoor pool and paddling pool; there’s a big sun terrace to dry off or lounge about at on sunny days.
If the weather’s less than kind, take the youngsters to burn off all that tiresome energy at the Loopy Kids’ Club or challenge them to a game of pool or a test of skill in the amusement arcade. The Yacht Club family entertainment complex will keep you all out of mischief in the evenings, while for food there’s the Smugglers Inn and Restaurant for meals and takeaways (the waffles are recommended for a decadent dessert).
Waterside has free wifi in the club with the option of buying a wifi package for your caravan at a reasonable cost; other convenient amenities include a mini mart shop and a launderette at a small charge. Caravans come in a range of tariffs, with pets allowed in the Bronze accommodation.
