The nearby town of Brixham has a delicious selection of the freshest fish and seafood which arrives daily at the thriving Fish Market.

Also you will find Babbacombe Model Village, which spans across four acres of award-winning gardens and showcases a miniature model villages, including houses, people, vehicles, a castle and a dragon.

It was opened in 1963 by Tom Dobbins and is a magnificent sight to behold.
