"We have used discovery holiday homes 3 times now for different properties in Shaldon. Our experience with the company and staff has always been excellent. The holiday homes have all been of a high standard"

Janet S - Leicestershire

"Braeside in Torquay was ideal for what we needed! Plenty of space to relax with our two teenagers. Efficient and friendly service from Will at Discovery Holiday Homes. We stayed here to visit family, and we'll be back!"

Diane from Sheffield

"This is a beautifully appointed, very 'sharp', clean and comfortable property with enormous amounts of space - we would rate it the best rental property we have ever stayed in, and we stayed in a lot over the years! The 'welcome pack' was also much appreciated!"

The Care Family from Swindon

"We have been using Discovery Holiday Homes for sixteen years; that say it all! The Balcony is absolutely first class."

Mr and Mrs Goodge
