Property code: BX060

Beautifully presented traditional fisherman’s cottage in quiet yet enviable location in the heart of Brixham

For a peaceful coastal break, this former fisherman’s cottage set in the heart of town is ideal for smaller families or friends seeking a centrally located base to explore Brixham and the wider area. The bustling amenities of town are within walking distance where you can stroll along the sandy beaches, browse in the galleries or feast on freshly caught fish in one of the harbourside bistros. Take a trip to nearby Paignton for traditional games on the pier or discover underwater habitats at Torquay’s Living Coasts aquarium.

 

Situated in a traffic-free area, this quaint property is full of charm and character. The open-plan living area is tastefully decorated, and underfloor heating makes this a warm and cosy space. After a day at the beach, put your feet up on the sofa and relax. Beyond is the well-equipped kitchen, perfect for preparing locally purchased produce to be enjoyed at the nearby dining table. Up a set of winding stairs are the bedrooms and family shower room. The first-floor twin bedroom and second-floor king-size room both have magnificent views across the harbour. A further child’s bedroom is also on the second floor. Outside, you can stroll around the shared garden or enjoy a morning coffee on the bistro stable to the front of the cottage.

 

Wander into Brixham to discover its maritime heritage at the museum, select your supper in the fish market or share fish and chips sat on the harbour wall. Take to the water for a sailing lesson or try your hand at stand-up paddleboarding. Step back in time on board the Paddle Steamer Kingswear Castle for a Dartmouth River Cruise (6.5 miles) and disembark to climb the battlements of Dartmouth Castle for splendid views along the river.

I recently stayed there for a week with my 8 year boy, we had a fantastic time. The cottage was spot on for what we needed. Easy to stroll to the harbor where it all happens. Recommend using the long stay car park just past the fish market and getting the weekly ticket which you can use in all the Torbay car parks in the area. Will go again!!

A really well appointed cottage, nicely decorated and maintained with quality furnishings and fittings. Fabulous views from both bedrooms, both double glazed so no early seagull alarm calls. Hairdryer, towels, kitchen items (cling, liquid, kitchen roll) all provided. We struggled to park close to St Peter's Hill, so parked near the Co-Op on Great RRead moreea Rd. It's quite a steep walk down with bags and harder when walking back with bags. I wouldn't bring a wheelie bag again for ease of carrying. Hide

Very comfortable cottage, excellent location and views, very sweet little garden area. Very clean, nicely decorated, comfortable beds. There are a couple of caveats, if you have mobility difficulties this is not the property for you as the stairs are steep and twisty and the cottage is up a steep hill. The shower head leaked a bit and the cottage rRead moreeally should have a washing machine. I personally found the air fresheners much too strong. Hide

Brilliant location, just a few metres (uphill!) from the high street and harbour, we enjoyed our stay at Gulls Perch. We did find the living space very constrained for two adults and two boys (aged 8 and 11). Also, we hadnt realised the outdoor space was not private. The compensation was lovely panoramic views from the bedroom windows.

Very nice welcome with flowers, chocolate biscuits and wine in the fridge. Also a bottle of milk. All these touches were appreciated plus the text to say the cottage was ready earlier than we were told. Lovely views from the windows and everything very clean. The stairs were not a problem for us but they were very steep having to hold onto the wallRead mores to ease our way up and down.
