A cosy home from home with elegant decor and comfortable furniture, the property has everything you need for a relaxed stay amidst the beauty and tranquillity of South Devon.

Adjacent to the owner’s own home, take the few steps down to the property and step inside. A bright open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner welcomes you straight away.

Sit down for a meal at the charming wooden table, then sink into a sofa to unwind in front of a film on the Smart TV. The pretty bedroom ensures a good night’s sleep, after a hot shower in the stylish en-suite wet room. In the morning, rise refreshed and head outside onto the patio, where the raised seating area is a wonderful spot for a morning cup of tea.

There are plenty of natural attractions to discover in and around Brixham, including Shoalstone Pool – a seawater lido – as well as Fishcombe Cove and St Mary’s Bay Beach, all of which are only 1 mile away from the property. Venture further afield for romantic day trips: travel in style on the Dartmouth Steam Railway, which calls at Churston Station (2 miles), or see the sights from the water on the UK’s last coal-fired paddle steamer at Kingswear (6 miles).

Lovely clean cottage perfect for a couple. Would have liked to have had a ironing board and washing machine. Welcome hamper was a very nice touch. Very well stocked with utensils crockery and even umbrellas. It is a great location however it is at the top of a very steep hill which wasnt a problem for us but could be for others.

There are several narrow streets to explore lined with colourful fishermen’s houses, with plenty of other great places nearby to discover including Paignton, Plymouth and Torquay.

For the active in your group, there are all sorts of activities to try your hand at, whether you’re a fan of swimming in the sea or prefer to enjoy long walks on dry land, with some great places to enjoy treks including the Berry Head Nature Reserve. And for fun-packed days out, there are several to treat the kids to in the local area, including Paignton Zoo, Woodlands Theme Park and Kent’s Cavern.
