The Bay is a lovely holiday home and ideally situated in Brixham. We used it as a base to explore Devon. The cottage is very clean and the kitchen is well equipped, with everything you need.

Very well equipped home but only two toilets which could be a problem. Steep walk to the harbour and shops down steps, difficult with a push chair or wheel chair. Some beautiful artwork in the home, books and games so plenty to do if wet! .

Cottage was comfy and a great fit for our party of 5. Plenty of crockery, glasses etc for multiple meals. Handy dishwasher and washing machine. Brixham is a great place, lots and lots of steps everywhere though. Loved having the courtyard to enjoy in the evenings. Took our mini bbq. The street is very narrow, but we parked in road around the cornerRead more and it was fine. Hide

Great location - just 112 steps down to the High Street! Also great view across the town, particularly from bedroom on 2nd floor.

Came down for a family funeral not holiday but would recommend to anyone for a summer holiday, steps or steep slope to harbour, not good for older generation unless relatively fit.

We had a great time in Brixham and the house was perfect for us: a party of six adults spending the new year at the seaside.

Absolutely gorgeous house in a brilliant location close to harbour and town. My children loved it as did the adults! We had a couple of hiccups on arrival but they were dealt with swiftly and professionally. Genuinely couldn't recommend more, when we are back in Brixham, we will be looking to book here again!

Treat yourself to a memorable holiday in the beautiful coastal resort of Brixham, where there are a variety of fantastic experiences that will entertain all ages. A lively harbour town, there is plenty to see and do in and around the town.

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.
