“Derwent Hill - very special”
Reviewed 4 August 2012

We had a week a Derwent Hill in apartment 5 and had a fabulous time.

Firstly it was straight forward to find, there was ample parking and we had a lovely welcome on arrival.

As well as the swimming pool, Derwent Hill has a very large garden with a big football goal (loved by DS), a huge box of garden games - we had a fun game of cricket - picnic tables to sit out on and bbq facilities on request. There are also books, dvds and boardgames to borrow. On a more homely front there is also a laundry room and lines to hang out things to dry.

Apartment 5 is very spacious, clean and comfortable - a really lovely space to live in. We had a flatscreen tv and a dvd player. Also the kitchen facilities were just like at home.

Our stay was made most special by Andy and Helen - they were attentive but not 'in your face' and so helpful with advice on how to make the most of our stay.

This was probably one of our best holidays ever.

We have just got back from spending six nights in appartment 2 at Derwent Hill. A fantastic stay with exellent weather all week. The appartments have everything you need and the grounds are very private and well maintained. The pool was a brilliant asset which cooled us down on those hot days. There is a BBQ supplied with everything you need and benches to eat outside. Helen and Andy are lovely people and recommended some very nice places to visit. They also provide pool floats, outdoor games, dvd's, books, board games, soap, milk, washing-up liquid, a welcome hamper and great parking facilities. The main attractions are a 10-15 min walk away and there are local shops and takeaways just round the corner. We highly recommend Derwent Hill and we will be booking again in the future.

We spent ten days in Derwent as a couple, weather was a let down but the place is a pleasure to stay in nice spacious appartmetns all mod cons incl tv and dvd etc.

Pool is fab but only opens three hours per day although andy and helen are very reasonable. Lovely well kept gardens and a cracking view of the harbour,

Close to beach, shops and free parking,very easy place to have a hassle free stay.

Room Tip: We stayed ground floor ... Always better

We have just returned from a long weekend sailing in Torquay. We stayed in apartment 5 , which was well equipped, very spacious and had a great sea view, as well as a view over the garden and swimming pool, so you could keep an eye on the game of football. The shared washing machine and tumble dryer was perfect for drying wet sailing gear and there was even an airer in our flat. Helen and Andy were very friendly and their welcome basket of tea and coffee as well as milk in the fridge means you can have a cup of tea before you need to go shopping. They also provided soap, washing up liquid and other cleaning materials, which was great when you are only staying for a short break.

We have just returned from a weekend break at Derwent Hill. In a word "fabulous". The apartment was very well equiped and immaculately clean. We were even provided with a pint of milk in the fridge on arrival. The hosts, Helen and Andy were extremely helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble. The garden was beautiful and a safe haven for our 6yr old son at the end of the day. There was also ample parking. We will be returning soon, hopefully for a longer period.

Cannot reccomend these holiday apartemnts enough. Great value for money, excellent hosts in Andy & Helen and nothing was too much trouble for either of them. Lovely personal welcome from Andy who offered to carry our bags up to our apartment where upon viewing we were amazed by the size of the apartment (Flat 5) and more importantly to me was the extreme level of cleanliness.

Another lovely gesture was the welcome pack of tea,coffee and biscuits left in the apartment together with a pint of milk in the fridge.

Again, I cannot reccomend these apartments enough for their level of cleanliness,location, very well equipped and excellent value for money and excellent hosts. Will definately return!

We have recently returned from a short break at Derwent Hills. The apartments are great. My daughter and I shared one apt and my mum and dad were in another. Both were well equipped and extremely clean. The garden is lovely with sea views and there are lots of ball games available. It is about a 10 minute walk to town albeit a steep walk back! Andy sent a text to say our apartment was ready the morning we left and was there when we arrived with a warm welcome. Would recommend to anyone and will hopefully return.
