The comfortable double bedroom also has its own patio door, while in the twin bedroom there is a TV for quiet mornings in bed.

Had a wonderful stay at Avocet 3. It has a spectacular view, was clean, comfortable and very nicely presented. A pleasant short 10 minute walk along the coastal path into Brixham. Highly recommend and will definitely return.

Reviewed by B E 10th February 2020

We picked this place because it has a really good sea view from the cliff top over Torbay. It is also right on the South West Coastal Path and it is really a very short walk into town. We enjoyed eating out at Rockfish and Quay 97.

Excellent property . Stunning views, very quiet & peaceful. Well equipped and very comfortable. Away from it all but only a short walk or bus ride to Brixham. Easy parking on site was a bonus too. Well definitely go back

A comfortable property in a great location with a stunning view of the cove.

3 Avocet, The Cove, Brixham is excellently presented in a wonderful location with a sea view across the bay. The property has all mod cons and everthing you need though I would say it is more suitable/comfortable for 3 and not 4 adults. Would definitely go back to this place.

On driving into parking area blown away by the view, everything exactly as shown on website. Apartment was very comfortable for 4 adults and a 1yr old. Coastal walk to Brixham very easy going even with a buggy ( had to carry it down 1 set of steps) We will definately return!

Really nice little flat with fabulous views across Tor Bay. Great location, just a short walk in Brixham itself. The flat itself is comfortable and clean, was a very nice place to stay. Top tip - just at the bottom of the path is Fishcombe Cove and a delightful little cafe. Make sure you visit it!

This was definitely by far our favourite holiday yet! Beautiful views, stunning apartment and everything you need to feel right at home. Just a short walk away from the Brixham Harbour which includes shops, pubs, bars and restaurants. We will definitely be staying here again in the near future. 100% recommended.

Recently came home from a wonderful stay here. The accommodation is lovely, very clean and has all the amenities youd need. The views are spectacular, such a joy waking up to that scenery every morning. We had two small children with us so drove everywhere but Brixham is walking distance from the complex. Then you can easily visit Paignton, TorquayRead more and Dartmouth from here. I wouldnt hesitate in coming back! Hide

Our first family holiday to Brixham and what an amazing experience! The apartment far exceeded our expectations, clean, tidy and welcoming.

Great location and views. However there were a number of minor niggles that on their own were not a big deal but combined were annoying: large dinner plates were too large for dishwasher, freezer compartment so iced up could hardly fit anything in, lack of storage in main bedroom, no cafetierre to make fresh coffee, very sensitive smoke alarm...

Reviewed by Rob 28th July 2018

This property and the surrounding area is beautiful. We love coming here however a slight improvement would be to clear the cobwebs from the outside of the patio as we spent a lot of time out there.

Reviewed by Andrew 30th June 2018

We had an incredible holiday!! The cottage, location, surroundings...everything is absolutely perfect! The cottages are accessible via a private automatic gate so its very secluded. Well definitely be back!
