Available for holiday letting for the very first time from November 2019, Bay Rest is a light and spacious double glazed and centrally heated 2 bedroomed, 6 berth caravan with a south facing 96 square feet exterior decked area. There is a king size bed in the master bedroom which has an en-suite wc and washbasin. There is a pull-out double bed in the lounge with a sprung mattress and slatted base and two standard length single beds in the second bedroom, so the caravan can sleep up to 6 guests. All beds have anti-allergy mattress protectors and non-allergenic pillows and duvets.

For your safety, the caravan is fitted with two carbon monoxide detectors, a smoke detector and a fire extinguisher. The kitchen is well appointed with quality appliances including a microwave and integrated fridge-freezer, gas hob and oven and plenty of storage and worktop space. The generous sized lounge has a feature fireplace, large wrap around sofa, smart television and DVD player and the dining area has a freestanding dining table and cushioned, high backed chairs. We have a selection of books, DVDs and board games available for your use. There is a parking space adjacent to the caravan. The total footprint of the accommodation (including the exterior enclosed decked area) is 528 square feet.

Bay Rest is 60 metres to the Smugglers Inn on-site restaurant, Yacht Club entertainment venue, outdoor swimming pool, supermarket and launderette. There are bus stops within 200 metres of the caravan with buses running every 10 minutes throughout the day which serve the three towns making up Tor Bay – Torquay, Paignton and Brixham. Also known as the ‘English Riviera’, the landscape has designated UNESCO Global Geopark status, one of only seven in the entire UK and 140 in the world.

Paignton sits in the middle of the Bay and is therefore the perfect place from which to explore all that this incredible region has to offer. There are numerous blue flag beaches and coves close by which appeal to couples and families alike. The Park is adjacent to the South Devon Coastal Path and so is perfect for walkers and nature lovers. Additionally, there are many superb year-round attractions in Tor Bay including Paignton Zoo, Living Coasts (Torquay), Torquay Museum, Brixham Heritage Museum, Torre Abbey Museum (Torquay), Kent’s Cavern (Torquay), Cockington Court and Country Park (Torquay), Dartmouth Steam Railway (starting in Paignton), Princess Theatre (Torquay), Palace Theatre (Paignton), multi-screen Vue Cinema (Paignton), Golden Hind Museum Ship (Brixham) and the Berry Head National Nature Reserve (Brixham).

Bay Rest is only 270 metres from The South West Coast Path, so is an excellent base from which to take a morning or afternoon stroll to take you to a beautiful view or a more challenging, longer walk. However much of the South West Coast Path you enjoy, you’ll be experiencing part of the longest of the UK’s 15 National Trails.

Waterside Holiday Park is a fantastic location from which to see the Dartmouth Steam Railway original and award-winning Christmas Train of Lights. The Steam Railway track from Paignton to Kingswear runs past the Park and the vintage carriages are decorated with thousands of lights, both inside and out. Dates are selling out fast and full details are on the Dartmouth Steam Railway website: https://www.dsrrbchristmas.co.uk/train-of-lights.

In the interests of hygiene, we have also removed the books, DVDs and board games referred to above. Please feel free to bring your own.

Mature Couple

Date of stay - 2 Sep 2020 - 19 Sep 2020

Really enjoyed our recent stay in Shirley & Mark's caravan. The communication and help we received from them, from the day of booking our holiday to the day of departure was first class. The caravan is comfortable and spacious, homely and well equipped. It is spotlessly clean and the added extra's of sanitising products, gives assurance they want their guests to feel covid safe. Which we did. Would highly recommend Shirley & Mark's caravan to anyone seeking a stay in Paignton. Thanks again for everything. See you next year ....Martin and Sandra

Thank you so much for your lovely review Martin and Sandra. It was a great pleasure to meet you both after speaking on the phone several times since you booked your accommodation with us back in January. We are thrilled you enjoyed your holiday, were pleased with our caravan and felt safe. Thank you from us for leaving the caravan so clean and tidy at the end of your 17 night stay. Many thanks also for booking three weeks next year. It is a pleasure for us to welcome back returning guests and we very much look forward to seeing you again. Stay safe and keep well. With our love and very best wishes. Shirley and Mark

We had a lovely week stay, on arrival we were greeted by Shirley & Mark. They provided us with all the information we needed and made sure everything was up to our expectations. Which it was and more. The milk, orange juice and other little extra were a nice touch and very kind. Mark is very informative about the surrounding area and was more than happy to provide us With some great information and tips about days out and things to do. This accommodation is spotless, comfortable and kitted out with good quality extra. The decking is a lovely area to sit and relax in the sun. We will definitely be recommending to friends & family and hope to make a return visit ourselves in the future. Thank you Shirley & Mark

Brilliant 4 days, the owners couldn’t have done more to help us, from leaving fresh milk and OJ to giving great advice for the local area. I felt the owners genuinely wanted us to have a good time and it was important to them. Will definitely rebook when we are back in the area.

Thanks so much Glen. We're really pleased you and your family had a great time. It was our pleasure to accommodate you and help you make the most of your time in Torbay. We look forward to welcoming you and your family back in the future. Warm regards. Shirley and Mark

Date of stay - 13 Dec 2019 - 15 Dec 2019

The only reason I have rated all areas as a 10 is because there is no option to go higher! From the moment i sent an enquiry, the owners have been nothing other that perfect. They're hospitality, attention to detail, willingness to help and provide local knowledge is second to none. As a stickler for 'customer service' I am very critical, however I have left Paignton far more than satisfied with the accommodation I thankfully chose and those I booked with. Thanks once again for all you did to help make our weekend one to remember. Hopefully we will meet again in the summer!

Thank you for your kind review Keri. It was our pleasure to accommodate you and we are delighted that you, Sharon and the children enjoyed your stay. We would love to see you again in the summer. Warm regards. Shirley and Mark
