  • Thoughtfully styled three-storey cottage with sea views from the second-floor bedroom
  • Enjoy breakfast in the private outdoor garden area
  • Situated in a traffic-free zone just metres from Brixham’s harbour
  • Short walk to all the coastal walks, beaches, town, marina, shops, and restaurants
Property code: BX020

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.

I have had a fabulous holiday, the dog friendly cottage is a great with the harbour and south coast path minutes away. The car park is located a few minutes walk from the cottage which is well equipped, cosy and a joy to stay in, it is tucked away from the road with a lovely outside space. I will be recommending Griffin Cottage to family and friendRead mores. Hide

A bit of a mixed bag, the location is superb however, the owners are not responding to previous guest comments. The cottage itself is well equipped and has everything you need, the beds are comfortable. The main problem with this cottage is the lack of TLC it is being given. There are so many bulbs out it is ridiculous, 3/9 in the kitchen, 2/3 firsRead moret bedroom, 1/3 main bedroom, 1/2 bathroom. It also needs a curtain on the landing window and the toilet seat is loose. Shame because it could be OK Hide

The cottage itself has a LOT of potential. It's in a great location with lovely views. The bed on the top floor is incredibly comfortable, all linen was spotless & smelled great. The property desperately needs redecorating, a proper clean and some simple general maintenance.

Attention to detail is missing, many light bulbs out, missing/broken items Disappointing. Hide

We enjoyed our week in Devon very much but would not return to this cottage unfortunately, as it is not as described or pictured. It could be easily updated and improved, e.g. bulbs out in multiple places, limited mismatched glassware and mugs. We didn't use the outside area as it was overgrown, messy, with dead plants and generally unkempt. The weRead morelcome guide seems out of date and missing key information such as where bins are located. A shame as it could be a much nicer holiday cottage. Hide

The cottage is situated in an excellent location near to the harbour and has the potential to be really nice. Overall it was ok, beds and furniture were comfortable and the shower/washing machine/cooker all worked really well but it could really do with some TLC, some attention to detail and a lick of paint.

We had a lovely stay in Brixham. Griffin Cottage is cozy with traditional features as well as having a light/airy and modern feel. The location is great and in walking distance to everything - just be ready for the steps as a lot of Brixham is built on slopes so this is unavoidable! Loved the top bedroom & views out to the harbour - super comfy bedRead more as well! Not much living space downstairs but it was perfect for 2 of us and 1 dog - may be cramped for any more people. Would recommend :) thanks Hide
