A fantastic property with unbelievable views. The cottage is really well designed and equipped. You quickly feel as though it is a home from home. We were a bit sceptical about having a staycation but staying in Brixham and this lovely property has probably been a game changer. You really don't have to go abroad to have a fantastic holiday!

This is a lovely modern converted cottage with superb views of the bay. The upside down layout makes the most of its location.

We had a small issue with the oven, this was sorted by the owners a soon as they were made aware ( genuinely nice people ) we have been home for just one day and miss the view over the water. This would be a nice place to live.
