Stylish decor throughout the property complements the traditional interiors. On the ground floor, enjoy a meal together in the kitchen/diner before stepping down to relax in the lounge.

The handy utility cupboard with washing machine, also tucked away inside the second-floor bathroom, is ideal for refreshing sandy clothes. Outside, shared steep steps lead up to the first decked area complete with seating for al fresco dining, or continue further upwards to the tropical decked area featuring vines and a banana tree.

One of the best cottages we've ever stayed in. Immaculately clean, well equipped and in the perfect location - we'll certainly be back again. Very cosy for the colder winter months, but would love to come back in the summer and make the most of the lovely garden terraces. Had no difficulty finding parking on nearby streets, although definitely the Read moresmaller the car, the better! Hide

We had a long weekend in Echo Beach. Beautiful well equipped cottage with everything you would need. Very cosy and we loved the elevated garden. Loved the decor and the shortbread left for us, what a lovely touch. Would highly recommend this cottage both for its charm and perfect location so close to the harbour. We will definitely be back!!

Echo Beach is a really pretty cottage and much more spacious than it might appear from the outside. It is very well placed for Brixham harbour. We did not find parking to be a problem although it might be in the high season.

Really great property to use as a base to explore Torbay and Dartmouth, plus perfectly equipped for a night in too! Location really is amazing, 1 set of stairs from the harbour, shops, bars and walks. Would 100% recommend to young families and couples. As other reviews have stated, garden steps and stairs are a little too steep for elderly. ParkingRead more was ok, just left the car in the long stay which is under 10 mins walk. Owners and agency were fantastic to contact, would definitely come back. Hide

Echo Beach was a great place to stay in Brixham. Fully equipped with everything and more you could think of. It's a beautiful example of a typical Fisherman's cottage and we felt very at home here.

Perfect Fishermans cottage for 4 people having 2 bathrooms. Yes the stairs are a bit steep but that is part of the character of the cottage. They maybe a bit steep if you have young children. Very nicely presented, would highly recommend. Perfect location.

Great location, character retained but with all modern conveniences. Very difficult to unload car due to parking restrictions & narrowness of street. Extremely steep & dangerous steps up to rear patio areas & a steep winding internal staircase which must be used with great care.

The cottages position was ideal for exploring Brixham and walking in the area. All the amenities are on the door step. As for using the cottage during the current situation of covid-19. The property was cleaned to an excellent standard. If your tall watch out for the low door entrances in the property. The patio areas at the rear are good for sittiRead moreng out when warm, but they are a climb up uneven steps. My wife and I had a very relaxing time and would definitely book this property again.

Location was perfect and very close to town and the harbour with a lovely local pub just along the road.
