Welcome to the Torbay Self Catering Association

The towns of Torquay, Paignton, Brixham and Babbacombe Bay, clustered around the blue Tor Bay lie in the South of Devon and make up the ENGLISH RIVIERA. Each town has its own special character but share a wonderful micro climate that keeps this little corner of England remarkably mild even in the very depths of winter. The English Riviera is the year round premier holiday destination in  Devon for all ages, with something for everyone.

Tailor your holiday to your requirements and needs by going self catering. Self Catering holiday apartments give you an independence that other holiday accommodation cannot achieve, and Torbay is a perfect base for just relaxing and savouring the wide variety of restaurants, cafés and takeaways available. You aren’t tied to meal times and can eat ‘at home’ or try a different cuisine every night in one of Torbay’s many restaurants. You will also find that have much for space for your money.

The English Riviera is also an ideal base from which to explore other parts of Devon including the magnificent cathedral city of Exeter, the historic naval city of Plymouth and the beautiful South Hams towns of Dartmouth and Totnes. The brooding landscape of Dartmoor is also just a short drive away.


If you book accommodation with members of the Torbay Self Catering Association you can be sure you are staying in a holiday apartment that has been quality inspected. Some have addiitonal accreditation from organisations like the AA or Visit England. We have everything from luxury five star holiday apartments to inexpensive  value for money accommodation. And you will receive a leaflet from your TSCA host that will give you special discounts at restaurants, attractions, theatres and on boat trips. Come by plane to Exeter (Flybe) from many UK or International cities and let the plane take the strain. Hire a car and pick it up from the airport so you can explore while you’re here, or let your accommodation provider help to arrange an airport transfer. Alternatively, Torbay is well served with mainline stations at Paignton and Torquay, and an excellent bus and coach network.
