Dine alfresco while enjoying beautiful harbour views in this fantastic holiday home. It is situated to enjoy all that Brixham has to offer, including fantastic seafood from the local fish restaurants. However, if you do fancy whipping up a treat in the well-equipped kitchen, Brixham harbour fish market will have all the delicacies you need. The cottage has two bedrooms, which comfortably sleep four people, making it the perfect choice for families or couples.


This charming property is ideally placed for exploring the local area. But if you’re a home bod looking for a tranquil retreat, few properties could beat this one, which boasts wonderful views over the harbour and a telescope to gaze through its expansive windows. The property is contemporary, with carefully chosen furniture and colour schemes to maximise the natural light. The dining table is situated to make the most of the stunning views, which make family meals a pleasure. Built-in storage allows you to rest in a clear, clutter-free area.

Brixham is a picturesque fishing town with a beautiful marina and boat trips which takes visitors to explore the coastline. If you wish to venture further afield, we recommend Fishcombe Cove, which is the perfect spot for kids and grown-ups to unwind. The peaceful little cove is protected on all sides by cliffs, making it a safe space for swimming. You may even spot local wildlife, with seals making an appearance from time to time. Fishcombe Cove is located just 0.5 miles away from the holiday property, allowing you to leave the car behind and pack a bag with sandwiches and sunscreen for a day of beach fun.

Superb holiday rental. Of course, the views are incredible; but the cottage was furnished and fitted out with everything you could possibly need. Comfortable beds and a well-equipped kitchen plus that all-important car-parking space. Top notch!

Nice, comfortable cottage. Great views for all windows. All stairs are very steep and limited access by car.

Fantastic cottage in lovely location! Overlooking the harbour from the four floors this accommodation has everything you could need, kitchen is very well equipped. The stairs as in the description are steep and you are liable to hit your head at least once, but we found they weren't a major issue. We would definitely choose Harbour Sails again!!

Comfortable ,very well equipped and amazing views from every window.Enjoyed the binoculars and telescope to get close up views of harbour activity. Guests need to be aware of three sets of steep stairs in the property , tricky with luggage. Never did fathom the instructions for the microwave .
