A bijou fishermen’s cottage located in one of Brixham’s older streets which is just a short walk from the town centre and bustling harbour, with an attractive secluded patio overlooking the town’s rooftops.

This property is located just a short walk from the busy heart of Brixham: its harbour. Fishing boats come and go here, supplying the town’s restaurants with delicious fresh seafood and visitors may wish to take up the opportunity to join an organised fishing trip. Pleasure boats offer tours of Torbay, as well as there being a ferry which runs across the bay to the resort town of Torquay, which offers beautiful sandy beaches, upmarket bistros and an interesting aquarium. Brixham itself offers an array of shops and eateries, as well as a number of attractions linked to the town’s maritime history, not least the stunning replica of the Golden Hind, which makes for a fascinating visit.


The front door of this property opens directly into the open-plan living area, comprising an open-plan lounge/kitchen. The lounge area is a welcoming cosy space, with its coal burner, comfortable sofa and arm chairs. There is a TV and DVD here to allow guests to relax in the evenings. French windows from the lounge lead to the sunny south-facing conservatory, where guests will find the dining table and doors opening onto the patio. The kitchen area, at the front of the property, is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge and washing machine. Stairs lead from the kitchen area to the first-floor accommodation, where there is one bedroom, a lovely restful room with a double bed, as well as an additional recessed single cabin bed which is accessed via a short ladder. The property’s bathroom has a shower-over-bath, and WC.


Outside, there is a patio area to the rear of the property, accessed through the conservatory, which enjoys views over the town and has been prettily finished with potted plants and bench seating.

Stayed in Brixham many many times since 1993 but have always stayed over the other side of the harbour overlooking the sea but this year I left it late and cobblers cottage in Higher Street was about the only one left. We arrived early and the owners were still there cleaning. Charming couple who even took our cases upstairs after we left & went foRead morer a walk to let them finish off. Tea bags, sugar, coffee, milk, tea towels, washing up liquid, bath towels, loo rolls & hand soap were also provided which was brilliant & saved us having to buy them. The cottage was very small but served its purpose. Ideal for a couple or just a couple with one small child as there is also a built in cabin bed in the bedroom which we used for storing our cases! The conservatory was nice to have as it's where we had breakfast & overlooked the rooftops on a sunny day. We even sat out there some evenings to play cards, have a drink & listen to music. We felt that the lounge area could have done with some more lamp lighting rather than just overhead lighting which was a bit in your face at night. The pub just up the road was very handy (The Manor) with nice seating & also did cocktails. All in all a lovely holiday although we booked late. Prefer the other side of the harbour purely for the sea view but if that doesn't bother you then this little cottage is ideal. Be aware though that you may think this is a quiet little road because of the double yellow lines but some idiots (taxis and Tesco vans) drive fast like loonies past there so keep hold of your pets or children at all times!

We have loved our 3 stays at Cobblers Cottage. The location is ideal and you can easily find parking a few minutes walk away. We will definitely be returning.

Satisfied apart from one or two points. Shower absolutely hopeless and disappointed there was no hairdryer. Main problem for us in our seventies was location. Hill up to house almost impossible for me and my husband was exhausted walking up to street parking. Should carry a health warning,!!

Treat yourself to a memorable holiday in the beautiful coastal resort of Brixham, where there are a variety of fantastic experiences that will entertain all ages. A lively harbour town, there is plenty to see and do in and around the village.

Crabbing is the number one activity in Brixham, and little ones will love dangling their line over the water’s edge and seeing how many crabs they can capture. Children young and old will also be entertained by the stories of the smugglers and the pirates who once walked the streets of the village. There are several narrow streets to explore lined with colourful fishermen’s houses, with plenty of other great places nearby to discover including Paignton, Plymouth and Torquay.

For the active in your group, there are all sorts of activities to try your hand at, whether you’re a fan of swimming in the sea or prefer to enjoy long walks on dry land, with some great places to enjoy treks including the Berry Head Nature Reserve. And for fun-packed days out, there are several to treat the kids to in the local area, including Paignton Zoo, Woodlands Theme Park and Kent’s Cavern.
