Warm and inviting, this tastefully presented holiday cottage offers a reasonably level walk all the way into Brixham for lots of amenities and a picturesque harbour.

Located less than 1 mile from Brixham town centre, this property, built in the 1850's, is well positioned on the flat to make the most of the nearby cafes, shops and seafood restaurants. Walk a little further to reach the harbour, where you can jump aboard fishing trips or take a tour of the local coastline. The coastal path is 2 miles away and promises fantastic walks and spectacular scenery at every step. Take the ferry across from Brixham harbour to Torquay and enjoy a fun night out or a romantic meal in one of the seafront restaurants. Returning to Brixham by night across the waters is a truly magical experience, as you watch the lights glistening as you make your way back. There are many beaches to be enjoyed too, Paignton seafront is 6 miles away as well as Paignton Zoo (6miles) for a day out.

Leave your shoes and coats in the porch before continuing through to the inviting open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. After a long day on foot, relax on the comfortable twin sofas beside the fireplace and make the most of the TV, DVD or CD player on offer. At the other end of this room there is a shaker-style dining table seating four, the perfect place to catch up over a delicious meal. Prepare meals in the stunning fitted kitchen, which boasts exposed brickwork and pendant lighting. Here you will find a gas Range oven and hob, large fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher and microwave. Also downstairs is a convenient WC. Moving your way up the traditional cottage-style staircase you will find there are two well-appointed bedrooms, one light and bright double with quirky historical features and one twin, each offering plenty of storage space. The bedrooms share a contemporary bathroom with shower over bath and WC.

Outside is a fully enclosed tiered patio area with garden furniture as well as a patio lower down outside the front door for alfresco dining. There is off road private gated parking for two cars.

Beautiful, clean, very well equipped cottage. Only a very short walk in to brixham harbour where there is an abundance of restaurants and shops. Short drive to Goorington beach (dog friendly) Eddie had the time of his life there. Booking with dogs you won't be disappointed

Crabbing is the number one activity in Brixham, and little ones will love dangling their line over the water’s edge and seeing how many crabs they can capture. Children young and old will also be entertained by the stories of the smugglers and the pirates who once walked the streets of the village. 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.
