About the property

Luxurious apartment to sleep 4 with amazing sea views and Health Club Facilities

**We offer Short Break stays in off-peak periods throughout the year, so please feel free to enquire for information about our 'Less than 7 night' tariffs.**

Boasting double aspect views of Thatcher’s Rock to the east and the beautiful sands of Brixham Bay and Meadfoot Beach to the south, this splendid sea view home offers a splendid holiday escape in all seasons.

Located within the iconic setting of Hesketh Crescent, this ground floor end-of-terrace apartment offers groups of 4 the chance to soak up a bygone ambience of sumptuous home comfort and regency splendour. Two shallow steps feature to the entrance of the property and inside the grade II listed retreat provides lavish accommodation across one level floor.

Centrally heated throughout, the coastal retreat provides the perfect excuse for a year-round escape.

Benefiting from the elegance of retained character features and period detail, the 23’ x 17’ drawing room offers an uplifting room in which to dine and entertain. The tasteful neutral decor is complemented by a plush sofa suite and antique pieces to further enhance the period splendour of the room. Four large picture windows invite the seaside in, with far reaching views to leave guests enthralled and inspired. Accompanying the regal-style sitting area is a 32’’ digital TV with VCR and DVD player plus free Wi-Fi for guest’s entertainment. A CD player also allows guests the chance to kick off their shoes and feel at home during their stay.

An elegant oval dining table with four chairs also features to the living area and is conveniently accompanied by an adjoining separate kitchen. Fitted with solid granite work tops and equipped with all the must-have appliances, the modern classic-style kitchen ensures guests have everything to hand throughout their stay. For a truly carefree experience, the nearby Osborne Hotel also allows guests to sample two tempting restaurants on their doorstep.

Leading on from the relaxing home comfort of the living area, two equally-stylish bedrooms await. The elegant master bedroom offers splendid views of the sea from its bay window; for a romantic touch to the bright and airy ambience of the room. Furnished with a luxurious king size 'Vi Spring' mattress & bed, the master suite is perfect for savouring a holiday slumber. The room is further complemented by bedside cabinets with reading lights, a mahogany wardrobe and a chest of drawers. A modern fitted en-suite shower room with washbasin, WC and shaver point allows an added feel of privacy for guests staying here.

The second bedroom is beautifully finished in an inviting period style. Ideal for accommodating additional guests, the set of twin beds offers a versatile arrangement to suit families and friends. The room is tastefully furnished with a wardrobe, chest of drawers and a set of bedside cabinets with reading lamp. A shared modern bathroom with bath tub, overhead shower, wash basin, WC, mirror and shaver point provides a convenient accompaniment to the second bedroom.

To the hallway cupboard, guests will find a washing machine and tumble dryer. All bed linen and towels are provided, alongside a travel baby cot and high chair if needed.

From the period splendour of the sweeping crescent, guests can easily reach the nearby parking and the lovely Blue flag sands of Meadfoot Beach. The historical setting of Hesketh Cresecent is further complemented by a host of modern day activities to enjoy, within the inclusive appeal of the neighbouring Hesketh Health Club. For a small weekly fee of £35 per person, or £10 per day (children under 11 are free when accompanied by an adult), guests can enjoy the health club’s indoor swimming pool, sauna and fitness centre. Tennis can also be enjoyed at an hourly rate. Alongside fine dining at the Osborne Hotel (a 10% discount provided for those who pay to use the Hesketh Health Club), guests can simply sit back and enjoy a carefree coastal stay.

The highly desirable location is within easy reach of the lively amenities and popular attractions of Torquay, alongside a host of nearby activities which include boat trips, sailing, golf, walks along the South Coastal Path and trips to the nearby National Trust houses and botanical gardens.

Review by Chris from Reading: "A beautiful apartment, spotlessly clean with fantastic views. Lovely spacious, well furnished rooms and a well equipped kitchen. Everything you could want from a holiday home and more."

Notes: This property has a £350 Good housekeeping deposit, which is payable to Discovery Holiday Homes with the balance of your holiday OR at the checkout you can choose to pay the £5 per person Good housekeeping deposit waiver instead.

There are several Golf Clubs in the area, the nearest one being Torquay Golf Club - Petitor Road, St Marychurch,Torquay, Devon TQ1 4QF Telephone: (01803) 314 591

Torquay Golf Club is an extremely popular venue for visitors and societies alike - due to the excellent service and friendly welcome provided. It is a delightful parkland course with stunning views over Lyme Bay to the east and Dartmoor to the west.

Torquay makes a great short break for Golfers in both summer and winter. When many other courses are snowbound or unplayable the clement Torbay weather ensures that a full 18 holes can be completed!


Torquay is the jewel in the Torbay crown and has seen a lot of investment in recent years, with more attractions, inner harbour and slip way renovations, the introduction of Living Coasts and a plethora of great dining and harbour side cafés. The latest news indicates that the new shape of Torquay is attracting inward investment from luxury hotel chains, which can only boost its popularity further and a return year on year of the very popular wheel, seen at the London Olympics. Hesketh Crescent however is a quiet haven in the most sought after part of Torbay, yet within easy striking distance of all amenities. It has the best of all worlds!

The English Riviera - The perfect choice:

The English Riviera is a resort in the truest sense of the word, attracting visitors of all ages and interests throughout the year. Undergoing a water front regeneration and a number of new attractions in Torquay and accommodation schemes, Torquay has something for everyone and for all ages, at all times of the year!

Torquay has been one of the UK 's top holiday destinations since Victorian Times when the gentry promenaded, bathing huts were wheeled down to the beaches and anyone who was anyone had an attractive villa overlooking the sea.

It was the Victorians who first used the English Riviera name to describe their favourite resort and their legacy remains to this day with sparkling white villas perched on the verdant hilltops, beautiful gardens around the seafront and elegant Victorian facades along the main streets.

Don't be fooled by the Victorian ancestry however, Torquay is also a vibrant and forward thinking resort attracting visitors of all interests, from Art and Culture aficionados to marine enthusiasts.

Torquay's famous seven hills provide the backdrop to a waterfront scene that matches anything you'll find on the French Riviera.

There are 22 miles of coastline, cliffs, coves and beaches and walks to rival any in the South West of England, with a climate that belongs somewhere much further south. There are opportunities for surfing, safe swimming, diving, sailing, angling and wonderful opportunities to study the natural wildlife at your leisure

Stunning views are to be seen just about every where across Torbay, out over the English Channel , along the 40 miles of Lyme Bay to Portland Bill or inland towards the Ten Tors Dartmoor. Torquay is an ideal base from which to visit Dartmouth , Totnes, Exeter and Plymouth , all of which are only a few miles distant.
