Two-storey period property sleeping two guests, with a high-level decked terrace, perfect for enjoying romantic meals whilst enjoying the spectacular views of the harbour and out to sea.

This property is situated close to Brixham’s bustling harbour, which is always busy with fishing boats, pleasure craft, and ferries which run around the bay to the resort town of Torquay. The harbour itself is a fascinating place for a stroll, as is the town itself where visitors can enjoy browsing the shops and sampling the local seafood served up by many of the local pubs and restaurants. Those who enjoy walks will love the coastal paths which lead out of town and offer fantastic views of the bay, whilst passing by some lovely secluded beaches such as those at St Mary’s Bay and Fishcombe Cove.

This cosy property is a wonderful place to enjoy a quiet weekend away, and makes for a fantastic couples’ retreat. On the ground floor of the property there is a lounge, kitchen, and separate dining room. On arrival guests will love to put their feet up in the cosy lounge, and during the cooler months, curl up in front of the warming coal-effect electric gas fire and enjoy the Smart TV/DVD player and Wii console from the comfy sofa. The dining room is next to the kitchen and offers a place for formal meals or somewhere to sit and read in front of the electric effect log burner. The kitchen has everything that guests will need to prepare their favourite dishes, should they choose to cook whilst on holiday, including an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine. A door from the kitchen leads outside to the steep steps which bring guests to the terrace. The bedroom is located on the first floor: a double room with an en-suite shower room with WC, and views over the harbour. In an unexpected addition to the property, there is also a bathroom on this floor with a relaxing roll-top bath, separate shower, and WC.

Behind the property are 3 levels of terrace reached by steps giving spectacular views over Torbay. The steps up to the terraces are unlit and are dark at night and are accessed via steep steps from the ground level. The owners provide guests with a paid for parking space in the marina car park: this has to be arranged prior to arrival.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Beautiful cottage, clean, well stocked, comfy and cosy. Fantastic views and if your knees are up to it, the views from the decking are the best.

This cottage is wonderfully placed, with fabulous views over the harbour. It needs to be emphasised that it isn't at all suitable for anyone with mobility problems, steep steps to get to the door, 3 floors , and steep and difficult access to the outside terrace. If you're fit though, great views

This house must be one of the best locations for the view of the harbour, that's for sure, likewise it is very close to all the sites to see. Have no regrets booking here, and would certainly come again. Only thing really I could knock is the access to the high level decked area, if you are bad on your legs like my wife is she could get up there toRead more see the magnificent views, but thankfully I did.( WOW what a view ) Hide

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in little lookout. Wonderful sea views and excellent location. Unfortunately there was a problem with the Boiler in the property but it was dealt with very promptly by linda and Johnny at Brixham Cottages. Could not fault the service. This was the sixth year we had booked with them and we will definitely be back next Read moreyear. Hide
