The car park also requires the swipe card to open the security barrier. Apartment 35 has one designated parking space. Additional parking available in local car park.

Sorry, no pets.

Non-smokers only please.

Further information, location: New Esplanade Court is a two storey block of privately owned apartments built in a U shape around a landscaped garden and swimming pool. It is set on a private road just behind the main Esplanade, so although very central to all the activities Paignton has to offer, it remains a quiet, hidden away location.

Victoria Park is ideally located only 4 minutes walk from the apartment and there is a fabulous children's playground and duckpond here.

We have put together in the apartment a guide book of information and suggestions of places to visit and things to do during your stay, but there is a tourist information centre just along the Esplanade if you are seeking something we haven't thought of. Alternatively, just sit back with a drink and relax in your comfy surroundings if you're in need of unwinding for a while! Be naughty......treat yourselves to a cream tea on the lawn at the Palace Hotel next door, but go hungry.....the scones are big!

About Mrs Dee Mather

My husband and I have been fortunate enough to be able to take early retirement from our jobs as an electronics engineer and occupational therapist respectively. We have 2 daughters aged 21 and 23 and our adorable 7 year old granddaughter. We also have 3 cats and a golden retriever. We enjoy classic car shows, amateur dramatics and theatre, singing, walking, holidays and good food.

Why Mrs Dee Mather chose Torbay

We bought this apartment having had a fantastic family holiday in one a few years ago! We decided to decorate and furnish it to a much higher standard than the one we stayed in to get the most from the property and to enjoy long weekends there ourselves. There is so much to do locally or you can laze by the pool in the sun, which seems to appear more in Paignton than where we live in Bristol. The location of the apartment can't be beaten as it's only a 2 minute walk from the sandy beach, the pier, Paignton Green, shops and restaurants. The harbour is only a leisurely 10 minute stroll and Torquay and other sandy beaches are only a 10 minute drive away.

What makes this apartment unique

Both the lounge and the bedroom are sunny and overlook the pool. Good to see when it's empty so you can dash down for a swim.

The location can't be beaten with pool, beach, pier, harbour, shops, entertainment, restaurants and pubs all on the doorstep.

Lovely well equipped clean apartment in fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

This fabulous apartment has everything you could need for a self catering holiday. It is located literally a minute from the sea front but is in a private gated complex so is lovely and quiet in the apartment. The owners and caretaker lady were all very helpful and answered all our questions and replied to all our emails. Communication was brilliant. This apartment also has an allocated parking space. We didn't use the pool but it did look very inviting and was very clean and tidy. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. We think good communication is important to ensure guests have a great holiday. From what we heard, it sounds like you were enjoying yourselves too much visiting local attractions to use the pool! Really glad you had a lovely holiday.

It was such a delight to return to Esplanade Court after 4 was even better by staying in this lovely clean, modern flat with an added bonus of overlooking the pool so i could keep an eye on my children that never out of it!!..Another added bonus was not having to spend money on loads of parking!! as with previous holidays having to go drive to everything used up such alot of money!! However at Esplanade Court eating out, going to the beach browsing the shops an many more is just all in easy walking reach..We only needed the car to go for days out...We only wish we could stayed for longer as there is just so much to do here.
