If you love the UK as much as I do, then you should look at what is called the English Riviera, which is a perfect place to be; they will welcome you warmly, have a friendly staff and are priced well within the budget for a holiday for the entire family.


The Richwood was constructed in the 1880s which is the ‘Victorian era’ as a holiday home for a family that was members of the London upper class. At some point in the ’30s, the building was turned into a hotel and today, it is now the licensed Torquay Guest House which is very comfortable full of facilities and is the perfect holiday getaway for an entire family – or a family reunion.

Dining Room

The current dining room was an add-on in the 1950s and the ‘West Wing’ after. The Richwood has a huge aquarium in the dining room with tropical fish.
