4 Days

In 1846, Queen Victoria wrote: 'It's a beautiful spot... red cliffs and rocks with wooded hills like Italy and reminding one of a ballet or play where nymphs appear - such rocks and grottoes, with the deepest sea on which there was no ripple.'  Over 150 years later, it still feels the same as you stand and look across the beautiful Babbacombe Bay. Babbacombe offers all the beauty of the English Riviera without the hustle and bustle of the larger resorts,  In fact, a break here at any time of year is the perfect way to relax and unwind.
