Torquay provides a wonderful quality of life for its residents with excellent shopping, waterside restaurants, a theatre and bars. The deep water marina provides excellent mooring facilities. The Cathedral city of Exeter is now only a short commute thanks to the South Devon Link Road. There are mainline rail links from Torquay through Newton Abbot to London Paddington.

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
