  • Sunny patio perfect for alfresco drinks and inventive meals
  • Beach and coastal paths within 15 minutes’ walk
  • Grade II listed traditional fishermen’s cottage with parking space for 1 car nearby
  • Fantastic location close to Brixham town centre and harbour
  • Great base for exploring Torbay coastline, Dartmouth, Totnes and Paignton Zoo
Property code: BX021

Grade II listed fishermen’s cottage situated close to the centre of the English Riviera town of Brixham with its beaches and harbour within walking distance.

This traditional four-storey house is a great little base for a small family or a couple looking to be close to Brixham’s harbour, shops and restaurants. Navigate your way along the narrow roads lined with pretty painted cottages and you’ll feel city life melt away.

 

Step straight into the living room and there’s no doubt you’ve arrived at the seaside, with a fresh nautical colour scheme with plenty of comfy beach-hut emblazoned cushions. It’s down a steep, cottage-style spiral staircase to the kitchen/diner, where children and grown-ups alike will love discovering the ‘secret garden’ and its secluded sunny patio - the perfect spot for a post-dinner glass from the wine fridge, while someone else loads the dishwasher. The first-floor double room has a lovely bright feel, and children or extra guests will settle straight into the twin on the second floor – also accessed via a steep and winding staircase.

 

The cottage is set just a road back from the town centre, with ample cafes, restaurants and shops to wander, while the bustling harbour is 150 metres away. It’s less than a mile through town to Breakwater Beach and the seawater pool, and about the same in the other direction to pretty Battery Gardens and the hidden coves along the coast. Walkers can hook up with the South West Coast Path and visit Elberry Cove, 2 miles from the house, where the crystal-clear blue waters twinkle in the sunshine. Or walk around the headland to Berry Head Lighthouse – the shortest but also the highest lighthouse in the UK, with some fantastic views. Further afield, the historic town of Dartmouth with its castle, and the shopping and attractions of Paignton are each just a 5-mile drive away.

  • Two bedrooms
  • 1 double with a TV
  • 1 twin bedroom
  • Bathroom with shower-over-bath and WC
  • TV , DVD and Netflix in the lounge

  • Many of the amenities and cottages in Brixham are accessed via steps some of which can be steep. Please contact us if you have specific requirements.
  • There are many small winding streets that are not suitable for cars.
  • Arrival: 15:00 onwards

Exactly what I hope for in a fishermans cottage. Quirky layout over 4 floors, comfortable seating and beds, well equipped kitchen for home cooking. Bonus of a little courtyard for sitting out.

We had a wonderful stay and the location would be very difficult to beat. We hadn't realised the accommodation was set over 4 floors but this didn't cause us any problems. Worth noting that if you're 6 foot tall you do need to watch your head in the kitchen crossing from main prep area to fridge and/or table.

The cottage is in an excellent place near to the harbour. It is well appointed; however, we would suggest having a tumble dryer rather than a drinks fridge! Although it looks a little shabby on the outside, the inside is very pleasing and tasteful. If you have mobility problems, Seagull's Rest (and indeed Brixham itself) will challenge you greatly.Read more Parking is only a couple of hundred metres or so away, and available if non-permit holders don't pinch the spaces, as we noticed happening Hide

If you can't manage stairs or steep hills this cottage isn't for you, but we loved the quirkiness and the location was lovely. The living room is cosy and the kitchen is well equipped. The garden could do with some TLC, but we would book the cottage again. Brixham is beautiful and we walked miles on both directions along the coast.
