In at second place was Windermere in Cumbria, followed by York in Yorkshire and Newquay in Cornwall coming in forth.

TripAdvisor article says: “The small town of Torquay, with its sandy beaches, palm trees and harbour full of yachts could easily make you feel like you’re holidaying in the Mediterranean.

“Get a tan on Torre Abbey Sands, Torquay’s main beach, or Anstey’s Cove to escape the crowds.

“To keep the kids entertained, join a guided tour of Kent’s Cavern,  a labyrinth of underground passages dating back millions of years, to see some of the earliest tools ever found in Britain and the remains of Ice Age animals.”
