The Regency spendor of this apartment is awesome! From the marble fireplace to the three stylish sash windows which allow the light to flood into this first floor apartment, it’s all about style! Add to that the 180 degree sea views from the balcony and you’re living the dream, even if it is only for a week or so.

This fabulous apartment is in a great spot for making the most of Torquay’s amenities with excellent restaurants along Hesketh Crescent. Guests can purchase a daily or weekly membership to use the Health Club at the Osborne Hotel including swimming pool, gym, sauna and tennis courts. Torquay has been a popular seaside destination for many years, and there’s good reason for that - the beaches are beautiful, the marina and harbourside are perfect for a stroll at any time of day, relax in one of the coastal cafes and watch the world go by.

This is a great location... perfect for getting out and about and making the most of  the activities and amenities of Torquay and further afield. 'Living Coasts' sea life centre and Paignton Zoo are a short drive away. Catch a ferry across the River Dart and explore historical Dartmouth’s winding streets and stop off for lunch at one of the excellent cafes, restaurants or pubs. There are 19 beaches along the Torquay coast, you’re sure to have a favourite by the end of your stay!

The seaside resort town boasts a fantastic range of shops, restaurants, bars in its cosmopolitan marina setting… stroll along the palm lined promenades and through the landscaped pleasure gardens and vibrant palm tree-lined marina and historical visitor centre. If you’re a night owl, Torquay's nightlife won’t disappoint.

Mrs Donna T,

We have been using Discovery Holiday Homes for sixteen years; that say it all! The Balcony is absolutely first class.

Previous Customer,

It was a spotlessly clean apartment with Fabulous Sea Views.

Margaret Ann H,

The Balcony at Hesketh Crescent was perfectly presented, and in keeping with the period of the property. The views from the windows were beautiful, especially one morning when the sun was rising! We will be booking again hopefully for next year. Thankyou.
