Traditional fishermen’s cottage, situated close to Brixham town centre, with two separate outside spaces: a courtyard and raised sun terrace.

Less than half a mile from the centre of Brixham, this traditional fisherman’s cottage is an ideal base for exploring South Devon. With exposed beams, an open fire and two sun terraces, it is a fantastic bolthole for year-round getaways. Explore bustling Brixham with its charming shops and eateries, busy harbour and beautiful beaches before jumping in the car or on a boat to visit the neighbouring towns of Paignton, Dartmouth and Totnes.

When you’re not dining out in Brixham town, rustle up delicious meals in the family kitchen/diner, which contains everything you should need. At the front of the house, a delightful lounge boasts exposed beams above, oak flooring below, a charming stone fireplace with open fire and a selection of DVDs for those quiet nights in. Upstairs, the bedrooms are light and airy with fresh neutral decor and wonderful views over the rooftops of Brixham. Heading outside, steep steps lead from an enclosed courtyard area up to a fantastic sun terrace. With a table and bench, this is a peaceful spot for enjoying a glass of wine in the evening sunshine.

Just a short stroll from the centre of Brixham, this property is within easy reach of the local shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. When the sun is shining, grab an ice cream and take to one of the local beaches, which include the peaceful Fishcombe Cove (0.5 miles) and the tidal pool at Shoalstone Beach (1 mile). When you have finished exploring the area on foot, jump on one of the many boat and ferry trips that leave Brixham harbour each day for neighbouring Dartmouth (5 miles) or Torquay (8.5 miles), or even try your luck on a fishing trip.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Lovely cottage, could not ask for anything more

Hosts were great, super friendly and helpful. Would recommend it, we enjoyed the hill, it has various routes so you can either do a flight of steps, or a few steps and a gradual hill, all manageable and good exercise, 5 minutes to harbour. Top bedroom is cute but can be a bit loud in the winds (not cottage's fault, just a note). Didn't use the outsRead moreide space as February. Hide

Beautifully equipped and tastefully decorated character cottage. Absolutely first class. Immaculate upon arrival and everything necessary there for a great stay.

Very much enjoyed our stay, cottage is nicely decorated with all you need and retains some original features. Stairs and garden would be challenging for very young or less able. Close to harbour via steps, but that is Brixham. Manor pub nearby is lovely.

Lovely, welcoming cottage nicely decorated and furnished. Comfortable bed, good shower. We didn't cook while were there but the kitchen seemed well kitted out. If you want somewhere with a good garden space this is not for you but there is an area outside the back door convenient for the dog and a small area up some steep steps if you wanted to sitRead more outside. Great location, 5 minute walk down a couple of flights of steps to the harbour or a few minutes walk up the hill to a park for the dog. Hide

A lovely old workers cottage which had everything I could have needed for me to recover from walking the SW coast path each day. Brixham has very steep slopes and there are also steep stairs in the cottage. The seagull was a bit reluctant to share the sun terrace as she has built her nest up there! Perfect holiday for me and my dog.

Family of four including two young lads stopped for the Easter week. We had a great week and the lads really enjoyed stopping at the cottage. Very quaint and different however a family of four adults would feel a little cramped. Equipment was acceptable and cottage was very clean and well kept. Excellent location for walking down to the harbour andRead more up to Berryhead, will book again for next year. Hide
