Family Friendly

Teignmouth is the perfect spot for a family friendly holiday. Right on the beachfront, Riviera Apartments offers superb accommodation but with all the fun of the seaside. Whether their favourite activity is building sandcastles, discovering rock pools, paddling in the rolling waves, surfing or watching the fabulous sunsets Teignmouth hits the spot every time.

Just a stone’s throw from the beach there is a brand new playpark with age specific zones from babies, to toddlers with an exciting splash zone through to the climbing rope pyramid aimed at the adventurous older child. 2010 saw the opening of a new skateboard park aimed at the under 12s, it has gentle ramps and jumps for practising their scooter and skateboarding skills.

Across the water at Shaldon numerous children spend endless hours catching as much as they can with a crab line whilst the long “Smugglers Tunnel” will lead you to a secluded sandy secluded beach where the pirates used to land their treasure and rum! For shell collectors, wait for the tide to go out and there are endless treasures to be found amongst the boats!

During inclement weather the local areas offers a wide range of indoor attractions and activities to keep children occupied. The award winning Paignton Zoo and Environmental Park is a fantastic day out, Crealy Adventure Park with rides, roller coasters and log flumes or Woodlands Leisure Park with its huge indoor soft play area. For further information visit our Local Attractions page on our website.

"We spent a lovely holiday here during the Spring Bank Holiday week. The apartment was spotlessly clean and spacious. We had lovely views of all of the seafront, across to Shaldon, the harbour and right up the estuary towards Newton Abbott. We had our elderly parents with us, so, having a lift and the apartment being on one floor was just perfect for them, and when they didn't want to go out they were quite happy just sitting on the balcony. It stretched around the apartment and meant they were able to watch the world go by. The kitchen had everything we could possibly have wanted in it - there was nothing we could think of that wasn't provided. We had no hesitation in booking straightaway for a second trip this summer."
