Teignmouth 5 Days - Cliffden Hotel
A fascinating ancient port with a myriad of narrow streets, Teignmouth became a popular resort with the coming of the railways. The busy port on the River Teign contrasts with the wide open sands and traditional pier of the sea-ward side of the town. Genteel pursuits such as bowls, crazy golf and open-air swimming at the Lido are popular with today’s holidaymakers.
