Devon County Show 2011

19th, 20th and 21st May 2011

Fantastic day out for all the family, so much to see and do from the animals to the exhibition stands and displays taking place in the arenas.

Devon County Showground
Clyst St Mary
open from 8am
Kids go free on Saturday

AND only 18 miles away from our guest house so why not combine a trip to the Devon County Show with a short break on the English Riviera in Torquay.

So what is there to do in Torquay?

Torquay on the English Riveria, Devon was made popular by the Victorians who visited to take advantage of the mild climate and many of the beautiful Victorian villas still remain, now being used as hotels or guest houses. Today it is still a very popular destination for short breaks, business and training events and summer holidays.  Even if the weather is not too good there is still plenty to do and below are just some ideas for your next holiday!
