Property code: BX019

Cottage property located overlooking Brixham’s working harbour, with a terrace area for enjoying the sea views and fresh sea air, within walking distance of all the town’s amenities.

This two-bedroom cottage on the quieter side of town is a fantastic find for families, offering a great set-up including a kids’ TV den and a choice of outdoor seating areas. With amazing sea views from inside and out, you can really maximise your time on the coast.

 

On arrival at this elevated property, you’d be forgiven if you are distracted by the superb views from the patio seating area and have to sit down and take it all in. But when you enter the house, there’s even more to impress, with a bright lounge/diner and a window seat in the bay with more views of the busy harbour. The maritime colour scheme lends a restful atmosphere throughout, and the house is peppered with cute coastal pieces and seaside-themed artwork. The sleeping areas are perfect for small families – the kids will be in their element with their own TV lounge including games console, and on the second floor, a stunning master bedroom with outside terrace.

 

The house is set in a pretty part of town, and there are several green spaces within a few hundred metres, including pretty Battery Gardens where you can enjoy a shady walk through the trees with the sea as a backdrop. Stroll through the gardens to secluded Fishcombe Cove, half a mile away, or carry on the South West Coast Path to explore more coves and beaches around the coastline. Shops and cafes in the town centre are less than half a mile away. For a spot of retail therapy, head to the historic town of Dartmouth, 5 miles away, which has a great range of high street and specialist shops, plus some excellent galleries and museums.

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

You won't get better views than this & it's a 5 minute walk to the harbour. The beds were comfortable and it was nice to be able to log into Netflix on the TV! Plentiful parking waterside (8.50/day) you'll need to be fit to negate all the steps down to it though.

Tips: bring bin bags, loo roll, dishwasher salt/rinse aid/tablets, laundry capsules, kitchen roll, foil & water (7yo didn't like tap water). Hide

Generally overall the cottage was in a beautiful location (just a few minor issues to deal with!). Views are stunning, but it is not for you if you dont like hills and steps.

A lovely, comfortable cottage with fantastic views over Brixham harbour and Torbay. There is a short walk from the nearest road or car parking space to get to the cottage, which is set into the hillside, so you need to carry all your stuff up / down to it. Not a problem for us but worth bearing in mind !

Beautiful view of the harbour, clean and comfortable. An ideal location for all the facilities and walks along the coast. You do need to be quite fit to stay in Brixham, very steep walks.

Lovely views across the Quay and marina. Only a short 5 minute walk to shops and town. Good pubs and cafes. Very friendly town also very dog friendly too. Steep hills though so need to be reasonably fit. No parking at cottage but can park on roads a few minutes back up the hill.
