  • "A lovely apartment with great views and so convenient to walk everywhere, everything we needed."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it. It would be helpful to include more details about the parking in relation to the apartment, I had to keep calling the owner to help me find it - he was great & really helpful. Also make it clear that the deck area is not physically attached to the apartment and you have to go back out the apartment & up a couple of public steps, it’s almost next door but not practical to sit in your dressing gown with a cuppa in the morning. Nice though in the evening with a glass of wine and great views over the harbour.

  • "What a wonderful apartment!"

    Has everything we needed. The views are stunning. I spent hours sitting in the window watching the fishing boats. We will definitely be staying here again.

    Would benefit from more tea and proper milk on arrival as seemed missing in this flat but lovely break.

  • "Fantastic property, best we've stayed in over 25 years of coming to Brixham."

  • "We had a lovely stay at the Bay View."

    I would say it's not for people with mobility problems due to the 100 plus steps down to the harbour. We had an issue with the door lock but the owner answered their phone promptly and had someone come to fix it within a day. The views from the main living area to the harbour were super. Only real disappointment was that the table in the picture is quite separate from the apartment not in front of it. Overall we had lovely weather and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "The cottage is in a stunning location overlooking the harbour and town."

    Inside was very clean and has been decorated recently to a good standard. Would definitely recommend staying here as long as you are OK with steps. If you are stopping anywhere in Brixham you cannot escape them but we'll worth it.

There are a host of safe cycle trails in the area, the South West Coastal Path and some of the best golf courses in the region.
