Find the best Torquay walks. The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional resource for all walkers, hikers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to leader led walks to any really arduous walks within the Devon Holiday Cottages area.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Mountain Warehouse Paignton

30 Victoria Street, Paignton TQ4 5DN, UK – 01803 664407

Great value. Shane it is only a small shop.

Good quality items from rain coats camping and hiking gear footwear


264 Torquay Rd, Paignton TQ3 2EZ, UK – 01803 552899

I’ve always visited Camoflague over and over because of Steve (Owner) or Nick, they’re able to get even some niche items they don’t sell in store. They have a changing room if you need to try stuff on and are really helpful in regards to knowledge about products etc. Reasonable prices, in some cases lower, in others marked up, but that’s the case with all small shops but I’m more than happy with that to support them. 5/5 - Keep on doing what you do

Top shop. Let down by another company and Camo store took my order, dispatched it same day despite being mid afternoon and I received my new Altberg Peacekeepers the very next morning. Very professional bunch and definitely will use them again

Reid Outdoors

22 & 23, Northfield Industrial Estate, Brixham TQ5 8UA, UK – 01803 882485

An excellent new company. I used them for the first time in May 2018 when I was forced to replace my trusted ancient Hardwear chest waders, opting for a set of Scierra X-16000 Waders. They were keenly priced in respect to other online sites, and as a bonus, this company also offered a ” 10% off on my first order”, which was a welcomed bonus. Having received my order, the company were quick to send out a very friendly welcome email, which again was a very well thought out customer service move. This in turn was followed up on subsequent days by updates on my order. Delivery was on time, well packaged and the product did not disappoint.....typical Scierra quality and design - a pleasure to wear. I would have no hesitation ordering again from this site. They genuinely made me feel a welcomed customer.

Great people and great company.

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!

Camping and Caravaning

Ramslade Caravan and Motorhome Club Site

Stoke Rd, Stoke Gabriel, Totnes TQ9 6QB, UK – 01803 782575

Beautiful setting. Peaceful and quiet. Wardens cheery and helpful. So good we booked 6 extra nights. We loved it and will return, wish we'd discovered it years ago.

Had a great stay even though we broke down on arrival, all wardens were very helpful especially Terry. Thanks for all of you advise and help. Would highly recommend.

Higher Well Farm & Holiday Park

Stoke Gabriel, Totnes TQ9 6RN, UK – 01803 782289

Wonderful peaceful location. Perfect place to truly relax. Selection of touring sites and pitches for tourers and campers and 18 static caravans. All very reasonably priced. Been coming here now for 35 years. Owners so friendly and wee site shop stocked with the basics. The site is a perfect short walk to the welcoming village with its post office/ general store, pubs, restaurants and beautiful 13th century church. A must do, especially if you have children is crabbing at the weir by the mill pond. A very beautiful largely undiscovered village that is highly recommended.

As ever a wonderful relaxing break. Lovely setting...spotless facilities...ideal for visiting Dartmouth Salcombe Brixham Torquay and of course Stoke Gabriel.

Waterside Holiday Park

Three Beaches,, Dartmouth Rd, Paignton TQ4 6NS, UK – 01803 221261

Beautiful place to vist, we have booked again for next year. Limited on kid activities, on the site itself for the kids there is a swimming pool, arcade, and little park. But the surrounding beaches more than make up for it there is more than one beach each with its own uniqueness and plenty to do. There is also a steam train that runs past all the beaches, i dont think this is a part of Waterside holiday park and i was not sure how to get on it but it looked beautiful. I saw a lot of reviews on the Waterside site claiming the caravans smelling like dogs but this was not the case, my caravan was beautiful and did not smell at all, we booked silver, the staff were lovely and helpful and we cannot wait to go there again.

Was an amazingly short walk from the beach. Caravans are well looked after and very spacious. Swimming pool well equiped for the kids to enjoy an after playing. Relaxing environment in the clubhouse during evening.
