Time for a picnic

The seaside is the perfect place for a picnic, whether on the beach or on a green space near to the sea.

What are your favourite things to pack in your picnic basket?

As we enjoy the summer weather it’s a great time to pack your picnic bags and head to the coast for that perfect getaway. Paignton is one of the top locations on The English Riviera and it has a great election of beaches and green parks for you to sit and enjoy an al fresco meal.

The English Rivera website www.englishriviera.co.uk.has some great suggestions for places to explore and have your picnic so why not take a look.

They are all within easy access of our apartments which are centrally located in Paignton with easy access to the beach.

Don’t forget to choose things that aren’t wrapped in plastic and please take any litter home and dispose of carefully.

Why not let us know what your picnic favourites are?


Green Tourism


Reducing plastic waste is a popular topic these days and one that is close to our hearts at Fiveway Apartments. Our first step was to support local groups, Living Coasts & Paignton Zoo but we also support The Marine Conservation Society
It’s one thing though to give passive support to these organisations so we have now started to look at what we can do as a company to be more proactive.
We now have a stated goal of reducing the amount of single use plastic we consume. Now we know we aren’t going to be able to do it all overnight but there are changes we can implement swiftly. But it’s not just about making changes to plastics they also have to be cost neutral so that we have to be creative in the way we solve problems!
We are also looking at better sourcing of other consumables like for instance providing Devon Tea, reducing the amount of travel miles.
On our own we can’t change the world but we believe that we have a responsibility to at least do our bit and if we can inspire our guests and suppliers to do the same then that impact will be increased.
If you have any great ideas on how we could implement change then please do share your thoughts with us.
