    Torquay in December, how romantic ! Plus trips to Brixham and Dartmouth, both of which we would highly recommend, as well as Totnes and Exeter. Can't wait !

    My Husband and I love a Turkey and Tinsel break, we have never been to Torquay, a break away to combine the two things would be wonderful.

    Went on a Turkey and Tinsel holiday years ago. I would love to take my sister, Valerie on this one. She would love it, and it would give us quality time together in my 80th Birthday year. Yes please.
