Three-storey holiday cottage with a homely feel, located just a few hundred metres from the bustling harbour in the English Riviera town of Torbay, with its shops, restaurants, and beaches.

This quaint little cottage in the heart of Brixham is full of original features, and celebrates its maritime history throughout. Larger than it looks, there’s room enough for a family here, sleeping up to five in three bedrooms, and it even squeezes in a sunny patio complete with its own beach huts.

 

From the huge ship’s wheel hanging over the original hearth to the vintage tea chest and antique-style paintings, there’s a great homely feel as you step into the lounge. Send the kids up to settle into the top floor bedrooms while you unpack – they’ll be pleased to be able to spot the sea from the single room. The conservatory dining room is an ideal space for the whole family to reconnect, or spread out into the decked garden if the weather is kind, ready for al fresco dining.

 

The cottage is less than 500 metres to the harbour and town centre shops and restaurants. Pirate fans shouldn’t miss a visit to the museum ship The Golden Hind. Take a walk right along the long breakwater to the lighthouse at the far end, or potter about on pebbly Breakwater Beach, half a mile away. The seaside town of Paignton is 6 miles up the coast and is a great place for kids, with a zoo and waterpark overlooking Torbay – suitable for all ages. The main beach in Paignton, Goodrington Sands, is very family-friendly with safe swimming conditions and no end of entertainment - from pedalos and water sports to a fascinating Seashore Centre with interactive displays.

The location of this cottage is great - 10 min walk to the harbour and shops. The allocated parking space next door was really handy. The cottage is very tired - furniture and carpets are very old and stained particularly in the living room. Beds were very comfortable. Small outdoor space with a table is nice to sit in the sun. Dishwasher would be Read morenice but there isnt space for one. Customer service from the cottage manager was great when I couldnt work the washing machine. Hide

Truffle Cottage is ideally placed for reaching the whole of Brixham and has a big plus in having parking - it should be noted that parking, although adjacent to the property, is in a car park owned and operated by the Quayside hotel and is unallocated and was generally packed while we were there. The property is a good size for 3 or 4 persons but 5Read more would be a squeeze. There's plenty of equipment in the kitchen for cooking if you wanted to. A TV is provided but it is not Smart. Wifi works well. Hide

Truffle Cottage is well situated close to Brixham Harbour, parking is available in the adjacent car park, which is very convenient. The bedding was clean, as was the bathroom, however there were cobwebs and patches of damp and scruffy, tired decoration throughout. It needs some updating and revamping. There were no leaflets, info or guest book. GivRead moreen the high price of this cottage in August, it was disappointing that the cottage was very basic compared to others we have stayed in for much less. Hide

The cottage is in a great location, with easy access to harbour and waterfront/beach. It also got paid parking at the back, but this parking is very busy/full at times. The cottage is also on a very busy road, so a lot of road noise to the front, can't open windows. It's a lot of money for this cottage, but with parking I guess you can't complain.
