Our Location

Trinity is stunningly located in Teignmouth, Devon, with outstanding views of the sea. We are within 25km of both the Dartmoor National Park and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. We are on the world-famous South West Coast Path and sandwiched between the East Devon and South Devon Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Given that Teignmouth is on the main South West to London railway line, only 20 minutes from the M5 motorway and 25 minutes from Exeter International Airport, it is clear that our combination of location and accessibility cannot be bettered.

Teignmouth is a popular destination for holidays as a result of its combination of stunning location and accessibility. It is surrounded by wooded hills and located at the seaward end of the picturesque Teign estuary, on a stretch of coastline dominated by the spectacular cliffs of Devon Red Sandstone.

Being a small town in a region renowned for its peacefulness, Teignmouth is a safe and pleasant place in which to live and work. It is, nevertheless, very well connected and therefore the culture and excitement of city life are readily accessible, be it in historic Exeter (20 minutes), maritime Plymouth (40 minutes) or even London (under 3 hours by direct train).

There are many things to do in Teignmouth, with some of the most popular being surfing, sailing and sea rowing, with the town often hosting events such as music and drama festivals, or art exhibitions.

Devon is known as one of the most desirable places to live in the UK, the South West of England being an area noted for its scenic beauty, high quality of life and pleasant climate.

Train

We are very close to the main line between London and the South West. Journey times are typically about: 10 minutes from Newton Abbot; 20 minutes from Exeter and Totnes; 25-30 minutes from Torre and Paignton; 40-50 minutes from Crediton and Exmouth.

London is between 2 hours 50 minutes and 3 hours 20 minutes away, with many direct services.

Air

We are only 25 minutes from Exeter International Airport. Flybe run services to Amsterdam and Paris (CDG) which connect well to Eastern Europe or the Far East. The Amsterdam service also connects effectively to the railways of Holland and North Germany.

Alternatively, there are a range of European flights from Bristol International Airport, which is 1 hour and 30 minutes away.

London Heathrow is also readily accessible (about 3 to 4 hours by car, taxi or coach). The trains from Teignmouth to London Paddington arrive only a few metres from the Platforms for the Heathrow Shuttle service, meaning that this rail connection is excellent and easy to use. Travel time around four hours to the Heathrow Terminals and services approximately hourly from about 0600 until about 2000.
