Meadfoot Beach Is A Hidden Gem On The UK Coastline

You may say we’re biased but we believe Torquay has the greatest beaches in the whole of the UK and the one at the end of our gardens is the best.

Meadfoot Beach is the jewel in Torquay’s crown and the perfect place to visit if you’re looking for a relaxing, quiet coastal holiday. As an owner of the prestigious Blue Flag, Meadfoot Beach’s water is tested annually by the Environment Agency and comfortably passes each time.

It’s not only the water that’s tested though. Meadfoot Beach is also marked highly against a number of factors including safety, litter management, available facilities and access for everyone. That means the only thing you need to worry about on your seaside trip is the sand in your sandwiches, although you can always join us for a fantastic sea-view lunch on our Terrace.

From the Terrace you can soak up the fabulous views of Meadfoot Beach’s sand and shingle coastline surrounded by awe-inspiring cliffs, watch holiday-goers enjoy the pedallos or canoes, all while you enjoy a relaxing drink.

You can take a slow walk through our beautiful gardens down to Meadfoot Beach from the Osborne Hotel but that’s not the only activity to get up to on your visit. The local area boasts a whole range of attractions to keep you occupied and entertained during your stay, from Paignton Zoo to Kents Cavern cave system to name just two. Click here to find out more about the local attractions on the official Osborne Hotel website.

Murder mystery fans will also enjoy the world-famous Agatha Christie Mile, which makes for a fantastic trip for Christie fans. You can see where the renowned writer swam, danced and crafted her best-selling novels.

Meadfoot Beach really is a hidden gem on the UK coastline. Most visitors to Torquay usually head to the often-crowded Babbacombe and Torre Abbey, while in-the-know locals head to Meadfoot when the sun’s shining.

If you would like to come and visit one of the UK’s best beaches and stay in the exclusive Osborne Hotel, then don’t forget to book direct to get the best offers. We will look after everything during your stay and have a range of rooms to suit your needs. Take a look at our superior sea-view rooms for the complete Osborne experience.
