Attractive two-bedroomed cottage enjoying a central yet quiet location in the English Riviera town of Brixham, situated just a few metres from the town’s bustling harbour.
With two equally charming double rooms, this cute cottage is a great seaside retreat for friends or small families. It’s got the best of both worlds with a location right in the heart of town, yet set back from the roads in a traffic-free zone.
Step into the rustic-style kitchen and you’ll know you’re onto a winner. Made from reclaimed wood, with cosy underfloor heating, it’s a great place to chat and catch up. Fire up the wood burner on cold evenings, relax in the antique high-back chairs with a glass of wine, and the pressures of everyday life will fade away. Opt for the top floor bedroom in the eaves and throw open the French doors to enjoy views over the rooftops and the harbour, or choose the first floor double with its atmospheric beamed ceiling and pretty sash window.
It is a matter of steps from the property to the harbourside and town centre, with a decent scattering of cafes and restaurants. There are boat trips and fishing excursions to occupy anyone keen to get out on the water, and plenty of coastal walks for those who prefer their feet on firm ground. Stroll half a mile from the house to pretty Battery Gardens, or if you’re feeling energetic, carry on along the coast path all the way to Paignton, 4 miles, where you’ll have certainly earned a cream tea. Hop in the car and visit some of historical Dartmouth, 5 miles away, then hire paddleboards and enjoy the serenity of the River Dart.
