Property code: BX021

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 (located on the first floor)
  • 1 twin bedroom (located on the second floor)
  • Bathroom with shower-over-bath and WC (located on the second floor)

Lovely cottage. Stairs very steep so no good for anyone with any mobility problems or young children. Very well equipped kitchen. T v needs updating though as not all channels are on and it doesn't take a firestick. Lovely pub across road. Good base for travelling to Kingswear, Paignton and Dartmouth. Bus service great.

Seagulls rest was by far one of the loveliest cottages we have ever stayed it. The stairs are steep as previously mentioned but the only downside which I feel I must mention was the noise from the pub a few doors down on Fri and Sat night until midnight, I am amazed that they are allowed to have such loud music in a residential street so late.

I really feel it should be stressed more in the description about just how tricky the stairs are. We picked this up mainly from the other reviews but were quite surprised by just how steep and uneven they were. Lovely little cottage, fantastic location and parking a plus too! The only other thing to mention would be the noise from The Manor pub whiRead morech is only about four doors down. It didn't spoil our stay but it was very noisy and lively in the evenings. Hide

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.

Location was great being near the harbour, shops and coast paths to coves and beaches. Hide

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 has just about everything you could need for a holiday, the garden is a little suntrap in the morning. And it's a stones throw away from the town and all the amenities.

We stayed in seagulls rest fisherman's cottage. A quirky little place, but lovely. Amazing location with plenty of local amenities very close to hand. We had 2 amazing walks along the coast in both directions some tunning scenery and the rest of the days we pottered around Brixham, has a lovely time and felt very relaxed.
