Derwent Hill Holiday Apartments
Reviewed 14 August 2011

We have just returned home following a 7 day break at Derwent Hill. The apartments are located in a quiet area of Torquay on a hillside within a 20 minute walk from the habour and town centre (for the less energenic Torquay has good parking facilities so driving there is easy plus there is a good bus route nearby).

The apartments themselves are very spacious and have a well equiped kitchen. They were also very clean and pleasantly decorated. Our apartment also had a sea view (circa 1.5 miles away) which was very nice.

The heated outdoor pool was very good and on most days we had it to ourselves (it is open circa 3hr per day, normally 14.30 to 17.30). This was set in a very nice garden area where there was also a number of facilities for the children (swings, slides and football goals etc).

There is plenty to do in Torquay and the surrounding area.

We went to Woodlands Theme Park which is 30 mins away by car (this has water roller coasters, pirate ship, various other rides, indoor play area with drop slides and animals etc), on a boat trip to Dartmouth (£13 return in total for all 3 of us) which was a superb day out, on a boat trip to Brixham (£7 return in total for all 3 of us) which isn't quite as picturesque as Dartmouth but is still well worth a visit and Cockington Village (hall, cricket pitch, pub, art and craft shops, various other shops etc) which is within walking distance of the apartments and a must see.

Paignton is a short drive away and we visited the Zoo there which is a very good day out. Paignton also has a number of good beaches and we spent a number of evenings walking along the sea front.

Other things of note are the fish and chip shops in the area which were all very good (we tried a number and were never disappointed), the local fairs and Torquay itself which has a very good shopping centre

All in all a great holiday

We spent a week in Derwent Hill Holiday Apartments, Torquay and had a lovely family holiday. Helen, Andy and family were so helpful and could not have done more to make our stay any better. They were always able to answer any questions about traveling around Torbay and were able to make really good suggestions for child friendly excursions.

The apartment was spacious and spotlessly clean. Views from both the lounge and bedroom were stunning. It was really well stocked with everything you would need from Iron and ironing table to microwave and Dyson.

We just loved the heated swimming pool. It was cleaned daily and added a real Riviera feel to the holiday! There were plenty of sun loungers and the kids were kept busy playing with the floats, balls etc provided.

There was plenty of parking available within the grounds. We had a great time at Derwent Hill.

We went there in easter holidays and had a great time. It has been very thoughtfully setup with everything that one would require for a comfortable stay.

My sister and I arrived in Torquay for a 40th birthday party in May 2008 and the Derwent hill apartments were booked ahead by my brother.Our host Andy, was absolutely fantastic and could not have done enough for us. He took every opportunity to ensure we had everything we possibly could. The apartment we had was for two people and was spotlessly clean and had everything in it that we needed for our stay.The grounds to the apartments are beautiful and there is ample room, should anyone need a quiet place to spend some time alone. The views to the front of the apartments ,stretch out over the torquay bay area and the back is well secluded, complete with picnic tables and benches. The pool area is superb and Andy supplies the sunloungers for those hot lazy days.! Overall we would highly recommend these apartments and their host . We will definately return for a longer stay next time.
