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.

A short walk from Brixham town centre, and only slightly further from the picturesque harbour, this cosy two-bedroom cottage makes a great holiday home for friends or families who want to enjoy the attractions of the English Riviera. Dine on freshly caught fish at one of the harbourside eateries, discover the nautical heritage of this coastal resort aboard the Golden Hind, or be rewarded with spectacular views as you hike along the coastal path.

Tastefully decorated in neutral tones, your holiday cottage offers comfortable accommodation in a convenient location. After a day exploring the winding streets of Brixham, sink into one of the plush sofas and relax next to the feature fireplace of the lounge/diner. Slate flooring and vintage lighting make the kitchen an inspiring place to prepare culinary delights to enjoy at the shaker-style dining table. At the end of the day, drift off to sleep in one of the two comfortable bedrooms, one double and a twin, that share the contemporary bathroom. For a relaxing night in, light the BBQ and grill some produce bought in the fish market for an al fresco supper in the pretty garden.

Stroll along the headland to the Berry Head with its Napoleonic Fort and iconic lighthouse for stunning views across the coast and the opportunity to spots dolphins playing in the bay below. Spend the day at the beach exploring the rock pools and splashing in the surf, before enjoying local delicacies in one of the town’s many cafes and restaurants. Step back in time aboard the Dartmouth Steam Railway (5 miles) for a nostalgic journey through beautiful countryside. Get a bird’s eye view of idyllic Torquay (8 miles) from 60m high onboard The English Riviera Wheel or see the world in miniature at Babbacombe Model Village (9.5 miles).

We had a lovely stay this September. The cottage was in a great location with a short walk to the harbour. It was fantastic that once the gates were shut it was completely enclosed for the dogs. The cottage had all the essentials. It had a lovely feel to it.

Lovely kitchen area, plenty of lighting, loads of space, everything worked and there was plenty of everything in the kitchen. All areas had been thought about, even down to the ducks for the bath in the bathroom, bowls for dogs, games for the kids, just everything,whoever owns this cottage has put a lot of thought in it for the holiday maker.

Absolutely lovely clean cottage in a great location. We loved it and didn't want to leave. Stairs were a bit steep and could be awkward for some. Driveway was a bit tight especially if the neighbour's didn't park tight enough but we had no problem. All in all would definitely have no reason not to recommend this property to anyone its fantastic.
