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 23 and 25 and our adorable 8 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 Paignton

We bought this apartment having had a fantastic family holiday in one of the other apartments 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.

Fantastic property with beautiful pool, perfect.

The property boasts a brilliant position a stone's throw away from the beach and pier. The property offer everything and more for us to enjoy our break in Paignton including a great heated pool. The owners are very welcoming, sending a wealth of information and answering any questions immediately. We will definitely stay again.

Beautiful in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely and clean, the pool on site was fantastic and overall in a great location to the Beach, Geo-park and the shops. Fantastic for the kids and lots of places to eat close to the site. There was also lots to do in sun or rain and even on a budget. Couldn't fault the apartment at all well maintained and beautiful presentation although for the 5 of us a little small but nothing to drastic when we didn't spend too long in there as the weather was brilliant. We would recommend to anyone.

Lovely little apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Knowing that the weather was likely to be mixed for our long weekend, we wanted somewhere comfortable we could hole up if the weather was bad and quickly get out again when it improved.

This apartment easily met these requirements, being well fitted/kitted out and maintained, and only being a couple of minutes from the seafront and town centre. Additionally, it is just off the main seafront route, but tucked away so that you are not disturbed by it.

Would definitely stay here again.
