Discover your Devon adventure

About Us

Who are we?

Discovery Holiday Homes is a friendly local holiday home rental agency based in Torquay, Devon. Ours is a family-owned and local business and was founded in 2000 with humble beginnings on a kitchen dining table, and has grown to have an excellent reputation with holiday home owners and guests alike.

We specialise in marketing properties to local, national and international visitors, for both pleasure and business, and have over 30 years' combined experience in the marketing and management of self-catering apartments, houses, cottages and villas, and with the rapid changes in the holiday rental market we have developed a friendly, personal approach with vast understanding and the backing of The Original Cottage Company.

We provide a fully comprehensive package including online bookings, phone support and management from our central Torquay office.

Truly Local Knowledge

Our office is in the seaside town of Torquay, Torbay and closeby to Torre Abbey Sands, Meadfoot Beach, and roads to Paignton, Brixham and Shaldon. Known as the English Riviera by the locals, our local team all live in Torbay and the surrounding South Devon area, so know and love the place where we work. We range from countryside walkers, beach surfers, pub and restaurant samplers, landscape photographers and more, so with our long list of interests, we're always able to chat through ideas for great Devon days out on your stay in our properties.

Of course, it's not just the local area we know - we make regular visits to each and every one of our properties to ensure that standards are maintained and high, and our property knowledge is as thorough as it can be - from where they are and where to park those extra cars, right down to the number of knives and forks each one provides! Of course, if we aren't 100% sure on an answer then we're happy to get in touch with the homeowner and will always come back to you promptly. We enjoy fabulous relationships both with our homeowners and our loyal customers, and we'd love to welcome you to that list!

Proud to Offer the Best

We're incredibly proud of our modest portfolio of holiday homes, and the range we can offer from budget breaks to grand gatherings. Of course, this means nothing without your positive feedback to us, and we consistently hear back from our guests, letting us know that we've not only met but exceeded their expectations! Whether a bijou bolthole, large home-from-home or anything inbetween, we ensure that our standards are kept consistently high.

After every visit we'll send out a customer service questionnaire, which helps you to provide us and the homeowner with feedback on the property, our service and your stay overall. Feedback is incredibly important to us, and we want to know what we're doing well, and what you think needs improving. We shape our business around the holiday experiences of our customers, and so if you see there's something you love, or something we could be doing better, then let us know - listening is what makes us successful!

Whether you're a homeowner or a potential guest, say 'Hello' to Discovery Holiday Homes, and let us make South Devon everyone's favourite holiday destination!
