Very well maintained, clean property. Owner made us feel welcome and even left us some provisions to start us off. This property wouldn't be suitable for anyone with mobility issues as there are several steps down to the property. Garden not dog proof so didn't sit outside and appreciate the views of the harbour.

We had a very enjoyable stay. The cottage was only a short walk to Brixham harbour. Debbie and her family were very welcoming and the milk, orange juice, teabags and biscuits were a lovely thought as was the dog biscuits.
