Self-catering Holiday Accommodation for Paignton Regatta

6 August 2015 | 0 comments

If you are staying in self-catering Holiday Apartments in Paignton between the 8th and 15th August this year you’ll be in the right place, at the right time to enjoy a marvellous week of traditional British, seaside resort entertainment.  It’s Paignton Regatta week when there is always lots for everyone to participate in or to stand and watch from a distance.

 Events & Activities

During the week there are innumerable events and activities including:

  • Dog Shows
  • Quizzes
  • Charity Cream Teas
  • Skittles and stocks
  • Boat Rowing
  • Cycle Races
  • Round the Pier Swim
  • Motor cycle displays
  • Live Music
  • Fireworks
  • BMX Stunt Show

And much, much more including jugglers, face painters and magicians.  Children will love the Dinosaur Corner and the Funfair.  With a full day of activities, you won’t have any difficulty getting them to sleep when you return to your self-catering holiday accommodation in Paignton. They will be exhausted!

There will be a Foster’s Bar on the beach throughout the week and great food and drink available all over the area.

Beat the Tide

An event for all the family to watch is the Beat The Tide competition.  Sandcastles are built on the beach when the tide is low and then the teams that built them have to stand on top of the sand castles as the tide comes in. The winner of the competition is the team that stands the longest and they are awarded the “Silver Shovel Trophy”.


In addition, there will be a variety of stalls selling souvenirs, arts, crafts and produce etc. Naturally all the other local shops and supermarkets will be open during the Regatta too.

There are few places in the UK where so much fun can be had in a week so if you haven’t already booked self-catering holiday accommodation in Paignton we suggest you don’t put it off any longer. Holiday Apartments are often booked for the event well in advance.

If you are staying at the Bedford Holiday Apartments you are within easy walking distance of Paignton Green and the beach so there is no need to take the car.
