Inside this delightful home, a contemporary kitchen area is fitted with a Range oven and American-style fridge/freezer for feeding hungry mouths after a long day outside.

Nice cottage with excellent views across the harbour going onto Torquay and Paignton. Plenty of room for the family, it was bigger inside than we thought. Only downside was the steps getting down to the harbour, but the ones just down from the cottage were ok. Parking wasn't a problem as we parked outside the cottage. We will certainly return.

This is a spacious, clean, well-equipped cottage in the heart of Brixham. It's great if that is what you're after. The view of the harbour is sublime. It is expensive. However, if you're a nervous driver or poor walker, if you want a beach holiday, or if you want a hiking holiday, then this is not the cottage for you.

A beautiful spot - could watch the view all day long. As mentioned, the house could do with a small update - the dining room especially and a cleanup of the garden areas. Otherwise, we had a lovely time and would love to visit again

Spectacular views. Sun trap on patio. Double yellow lines outside house. Very narrow road and was impossible to park, had to park three streets away. Beds very comfortable. Could not get hold of the service company, went straight to voicemail every time and then got message to say inbox was full. Well equipped modern kitchen.

A lovely cottage in an amazing location, as the view of the harbour was so beautiful and nourishing for the soul, and it didn't take long to get there via the steps (or via a sloped path with the pram). The whole area around Brixham is lovely, and we enjoyed walking along the South West Coast Path. Note: children's cot and high chair cost us 10 to Read morehire, and there's no children's dinnerware. The double bed in the first floor bedroom is actually two single beds connected together. Hide

Hairpin cottage simply has a view of the harbour and beyond that is hypnotic, day or night you just cannot stop looking out the window. There is always lots to see and do, from steam trains to ferry boats to Torquay or Dartmouth or simply crabbing or fishing, we have been going to Brixham for over a decade and will continue to go again.
