In former years Torquay was a fishing town but during the 19th century it began to develop as a popular seaside resort. This combined with the arrival of the railway lead to a rapid development in this direction, as well as in the overall population of the town which grew dramatically during this period.

Amongst other things Torquay is famous for being the home of Agatha Christie, who was born there in 1890, the well-known author of numerous crime novels. One of the tourist attractions of the town is "Agatha Christie's Mile", which is a tour of various locations related to the author, each with a unique plaque. The locations include the Agatha Christie Gallery within the Torquay Museum, followed by the Grand Hotel where she and her 1st husband Archie spent their honeymoon.

There are several fine family beaches in the town. Meadfoot beach is the nearest to our cottage Rosalia in Wellswood. The beach is shingle and sand and amenities include canoeing, paddle boats, cafe/restaurant, beach huts, deck chair/pedalo hire, first aid etc. Or Oddicombe Beach is the nearest beach to our other cottage St Anns, in St Marychurch/ Babbacombe.
