This lovely, contemporary house is the perfect base for a family or two couples to explore Brixham town and the fantastic beaches that Torbay has to offer.

Brixham’s town centre and harbour are a short walk away from the property. With easy access to the South West Coast Path and other top visitor attractions, this home is a perfect starting point for exploring Brixham and the surrounding area. Popular with children and adults alike is the life-size replica of Sir Francis Drake’s ship The Golden Hind, but also make time to see the Napoleonic-era forts and incredible panoramic sea views at nearby Berry Head (2 miles if walking or cycing), or embark on day trips to nearby Torquay (9 miles), Paignton (6 miles), Totnes (10 miles) and Dartmouth (6 miles). There are plenty of local pubs, restaurants and shops in the town to appeal to all tastes, especially if you enjoy seafood. Other attractions such as Kents Cavern (10 miles), Paignton Zoo (6 miles), Quay West (5 miles) and Woodlands Adventure Park (19 miles) are also close by to keep everyone in the group entertained.

Step inside this fantastic holiday home on the ground floor to find yourself in the entrance hall. To the right is the kitchen which opens up to the open-plan living and dining area, allowing the light to flow through and allow guests to continue talking about their plans for the day, no matter where they are. The well-equipped kitchen comprises an electric oven, electric hob, fridge, washing machine and microwave. Moving back to the lounge/diner, you’ll find it is the perfect place to relax with the family after a day of exploring the local area, with the Smart TV to catch up on your favourite shows and comfortable seating for all guests. The room has patio doors that open and extend the space, allowing the fresh sea air indoors. Progressing upstairs to the first floor brings you to the two bedrooms. The first is a lovely double bedroom overlooking the patio area and looking towards Brixham town, whilst the other is a brilliant twin zip-and-link (which can be made into a super-king-size on request). The first floor also houses the shower room, featuring a walk-in shower and WC.

Stepping outside the double patio doors in the living room brings you to the enclosed patio area, perfect for enjoying a drink in the summer sun on the terrace seating. Just across from the property are two public park areas, great for walking dogs and there is also a public playground with public tennis courts for you or the kids. To the front of the property is a driveway with parking for one car.

  • 2 bedrooms – 1 double and 1 twin zip-and-link (which can be made as a super-king-size upon request)

Nice cottage. Near to the harbour and buses. Lovely field/gardens across the road from the cottage good for dog walking or relaxing and looking over the harbour. Also there is a woodland walk a bit further down which we were told about on our last day. Parking outside on the front drive was a bonus.

The house was well placed being a short walk to the harbour as well as coves. A short drive to lots of other coves as well as larger towns locally. The house was clean and tidy providing a perfect base for the holiday. Our small dog was welcome and it was great with a park just over the road for them to be walked.
