South Devon & Torbay

We love our playground and we reckon you will too. Torbay has loads of rocky places to explore and paddle around and South Devon is chock full of secluded beaches and empty footpaths waiting to be discovered. Coupled with the beautiful Tors of Dartmoor within 20 minutes' drive and the surf beaches of North Devon and Cornwall an hour away, we think this is the best place in the UK to work if you love what you do!
