The Local Area


Penlee is located between Babbacombe and St Marychurch in Torquay, Devon.

The friendly area utters a Mediterranean

atmosphere with a variety of sandy beaches such as Babbacombe Bay, Meadfoote, Torre Abbey Sands,

Hollicombe Beach and more.

The English Riviera.

With its beautiful coastline, surrounded by palm

trees, marinas and holiday villas, the ‘English Riviera’ is a wonderful place to call home.


Relax and explore.

Originating as a town mainly for fishermen and

their cottages, the area has grown to become a popular tourist destination with plenty of attractions such as; Torre Abbey, Torquay Museum, Kents Cavern and Agatha Christie’s Greenway House and Garden. 

Torquay is filled with plenty of opportunity for relaxation and exploring. Located perfectly by the coast, St Marychurch also benefits from being nearby Torquay town centre with cafes, banks, theatres, boutiques and restaurants.

This makes it the ideal location for Penlee and our residents.
