The Richwood – Torquay

Just a 15 minute walk away from the golden sands of Torquay, lies The Richmond.

Nestled in the heart of the residential area, it lies on a quiet street, just far enough removed the hustle and bustle of the high street to feel peaceful. Visit in the peak of the Summer and you’ll be treated to the tropical heats that Torquay has to offer. With the beach front just a few moments walk away you can drift down whenever you want, but before you go – why not indulge in The Richwood’s Full English Breakfast?


At £7.50 extra per head, the Full English Breakfast comes with unlimited toast and optional tropical fruit juice.

Fully loaded for the day ahead, and well rested after your stay in one of their 13 affordable rooms, it will only take you a few moments to make your way down to the beach front. Torquay’s golden beach stretches for nearly a kilometre and it’s waters are wonderfully warm in the height of summer.

Don’t fancy hitting the beach up? Then you can relax in the hotel, at no extra cost! One of The Richwood’s most attractive features is it’s gorgeous back garden complete with a decent sized swimming pool and attached paddling pool. It gets hours of warm sunlight during the day, meanig you only have to wander nonchalantly outside of your hotel to find a great place to relax.

There are plenty of great places to eat and drink in Torquay, but why leave the hotel when you can stay in for an evening and enjoy some freshly made Lebanese cuisine. Completely authentic and ‘reasonably priced’; slip into a Mediterranean fantasy whilst you eat from their fine selection of classic Middle-Eastern and European foods.

Giddy with the taste of jarred Olives and Hummus; why not take a glass of Ouzo out with you to the poolside and sit there awhile.

Breathe in the verdant smell of summer that flows gently through the suburbs and allow yourself to drift away into thoughts that take you far from Torquay, far from England and into the loving embrace of a mysterious woman’s arms. You don’t know her name, but somehow you feel safe and warm.


Children are more than welcome at The Richwood, as well as Pets (although you’ll have to pay an extra £10 per animal), but they usually turn in quite early.

With the pool side vacated of children, you’re free to recline by the pool – order some more drinks perhaps – and slowly work your way through a pack of cigarettes. Of course, if you don’t smoke or drink – you can always just relax in a dark garden space in the middle of Torquay. It’s totally up to you.

Filled with surprises and endless adventure, Torquay is a stunning town that has heaps of culture and things to do.

There’s no better place to stay than The Richwood, if you’re looking for comfortable accommodation, decent food or just a peaceful spot to relax.
