Living & Working At Our Devon Adventure Resort

Situated in the gorgeous sun-soaked English Riviera, our Adventure Resort is a fantastic place to work, rest and play. Devon

The resort is an imposing country mansion set in 46 acres of beautiful countryside on the outskirts of Torquay, in the middle of the English Riviera. So, if working close to the seaside in glorious sunshine is what you are after, then look no further. The local area is surrounded by stunning coast and countryside. The English Riviera may be most famous for its award winning beaches and exotic palm trees, but it has much more to offer than just seaside holidays and has more attractions than any other resort in the UK, and is also a Global Geopark.

What up in Devon
 
Visit Devon and you can learn to surf in the spectacularly rugged coastline of North Devon, head out on your bike into the hills of Exmoor National Park, trek the South West Coast Path in South Devon, try your hand at sailing from Dartmouth or Salcombe. Why not take the kids and explore the Geopark on the English Riviera or try coasteering, jet skiing or scuba diving? Discover the wilder side of Devon by climbing a tor or camping under the stars, or fish the Dart on Dartmoor National Park, swing through the trees or power down the woodland tracks at Haldon Forest.
 
You can even ski all year round at the Plymouth Ski and Snowboard Centre, or just go for a stroll in the fresh air and the glorious countryside. The South West's largest indoor climbing wall at Quay Climbing Centre in Exeter's Historic Quayside is a must for any climbing enthusiast, or try the indoor climbing wall (great for all ages and abilities) at Rock & Rapid near South Molton. For something unusual, pack a picnic and go Llama trekking from Sidmouth.
