Lincombe Hall Hotel, Torquay, Devon
Situated in a prime position in the Meadfoot area of Torquay on the English Riviera, Lincombe Hall Hotel boasts spectacular sea views and a design-led spa. Classically British, this lovingly transformed seaside retreat has elegant, contemporary interiors with a little old school grandeur. Well-manicured, palm-fringed gardens give way to glistening ocean views.

Enjoy modern design fused with heritage features and some of the finest locally sourced produce in the smart restaurant. Close to the South West Coast Path, and many local attractions, this adults-only hotel is a great base for exploring south Devon.

Food & drink
Happily, the fishing port of Brixham is on the doorstep, so expect plenty of fresh fish and seafood, as well as West Country cheeses and locally reared meat. We're blown away by the fillet of Torbay Plaice, served with asparagus spears, crispy new potatoes and mint dressing - followed by deep-fried coconut rice pudding Arancini.
