The Shiphay and Willows beat area is located on the outskirts of Torquay bordering the areas of Kingskerswell, Chelston, Hele and Barton. At the centre of the patch lies Torbay District Hospital, Newton Road and Riviera Way, the main arterial road network into Torquay from Newton Abbot and Exeter.

This road divides the patch directly in half, with Shiphay lying to the West and The Willows to the East. The beat is made up predominantly of residential housing comprising a mixture of privately owned, rented and social properties. It also incorporates large retail and industrial developments including The Willows Retail Park, Wren Retail Park and Riviera Way Retail Park.  The patch is served by two primary schools, namely Shiphay Primary and Barton Hill Primary. The nearest Secondary schools, Torquay Boys and Torquay Girls Grammar, are located just over the beat boundary in Chelston.
