Converted beautifully with little thoughtful touches throughout, this property promises a comfortable and stylish stay close to the heart of bustling Brixham.

This historic building, located a short distance from Brixham harbour, is well positioned to enjoy scenic views and the amenities found in the pretty hillside village of Brixham. There’s ample space for all the family, with four bedrooms sleeping a total of seven guests. The property boasts a sunny south-facing balcony, where guests will be able to relax and enjoy a morning cuppa before embarking on a day of adventure. Coastal walks and sheltered coves are all within a short distance from the property.

Originally a structure built to accommodate and manufacture sail boats, this tall, narrow building has now been tastefully converted into a cottage which suits contemporary living. A characterful space, the cottage is entered on the first floor via steps, which lead to the main lounge with its own balcony for seaside views. The property has a restful, neutral interior with comfortable sofas and a beanbag providing the perfect perch for a DVD or catching up with the soaps. Two bedrooms can be found on the floor below. The crown of the property is the master bedroom, which can be found on the top floor. This impressive space has a vaulted ceiling, adding to the room’s grandeur. An en-suite and single bedroom, also with vaulted ceiling can be found on this floor, too.

Brixham is a wonderful place to explore, with the harbour less than 1 mile away from the property. A walk of just 1.5 miles brings you to Fishcombe Cove, which is an idyllic beach location for all the family. Grab your bucket and spades and help the little ones build sandcastles in this stunning area. Animals lovers can go wild at Paignton Zoo, just 5.5 miles away, where budding zoologists can find themselves up close and personal with amongst others, a komodo dragon!

I had previously lived in Brixham for nearly 20 years and this property provided an excellent base for a return visit over Christmas.

Well placed in Brixham to enjoy all of the amenities that the town offers. Very close to shops and harbour. With the property being on 3 floors, everyone felt they had space (we had 6 adults, a 3-year old and a baby). Excellent, comfortable layout and furniture.

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.
