Located in a traffic-free zone, this property is ideal for a relaxing break by the sea. Brixham’s famous working harbour is on the doorstep, offering fishing and boating trips. A variety of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants are all within a short walking distance where freshly-caught seafood can be sampled all year round. There are plenty of beautiful beaches and towns along the nearby coast, easily accessible by bus, boat or even steam train, or why not take in the amazing views walking along the South West Coast Path.

Inside, the property has been beautifully presented to make the most of space on offer. Step through the stable door into the open-plan lounge featuring wooden flooring with underfloor heating, a comfortable corner sofa, smart TV with DVD player and a radio/docking station. The sociable kitchen area beyond is perfect for entertaining and includes an electric oven, halogen hob, fridge with ice compartment, microwave, kettle and toaster. Meals can be enjoyed at the nearby dining table. Take the winding stairs up to the first floor to access the twin bedroom which is light and airy and features a quaint window seat for admiring the sensational sea views, the beds being zip-and-link can also be made into a double if requested at the time of booking. Also on this floor is a shower room with underfloor heating, walk-in shower, WC and wash basin. Further winding stairs lead up to the second floor, where you can again admire the stunning views across the harbour, Torbay and beyond from the window seat in the spacious double bedroom with king-size bed. Both bedrooms have ample storage space. Also on the second floor is a small child’s bedroom with three-quarter sized bed. This room could also be used for a baby’s cot or additional storage for luggage.

To the front of the property is a bistro-style table and chairs for enjoying drinks as the sun goes down. A further communal lawned garden area can also be used which is shared with neighbouring properties.

  • 3 bedrooms

  • Regret no pets
  • Bed linen and towels included
  • Electric and heating included
  • Terrace area with bistro-style table and chairs, further communal lawn
  • This property has a steep winding staircase, and is therefore not suitable for children under 5 or those with mobility difficulties
  • Brixham is busy fishing town, situated on a very steep hill, so access to some parts of the village can be challenging.
  • Please contact us if you have specific requirements.
  • There are many small winding streets that are not suitable for cars, therefore many properties in Brixham do not have private parking. However, alternative parking is available in local carparks.

Very surprised at the high standard and the welcoming gift of biscuits and wine. Everything we would need - was there! Teas (various) nice coffee, milk and sugar. For us oldies, the long climb from the main road was an effort but our main worry was finding a near spot to park the car in order to u loud our luggage. Having arrived we wished we couldRead more stay longer. Hide

We had a great holiday in Brixham and the cottage was in a great location as it was close to the town and beaches. The view from the upstairs window which overlooked the harbour and coastline was fantastic. Although we had a slight problem when the shower stopped working I am pleased to say Johnny reacted immediately when I telephoned him and had iRead moret fixed straight away. I was very impressed by the service. Hide

A well-appointed cottage with decent views, convenient for the quayside and, for Brixham, not too much of a climb to get to.
