  • "Very nice apartment, I would like to live there!"

  • "Excellent accommodation with good directions both getting to the property and during our stay by way of service manuals."

    The property was clean and well presented.

  • "The apartment is so thoughtfully equipped, there is far more than mentioned in the listing."

    Hairdryers in both bedrooms, freezer compartment in the fridge, iron and ironing board. CDs, books, playing cards and even binoculars, just to mention a few of the extras I noticed! It is perfectly located for exploring all the coves and beaches for miles. The coastal path is moments away and accesses them all. The view is incredible, and in a peaceful surrounding. We saw several seals close up. Couldn’t ask for more! (I may have shed a few tears on departure) Thank you for a beautiful base to a beautiful, memorable holiday

    Really appreciated the wine and biscuits on arrival. Superb views and location, very peaceful. 10 minute walk into town via the costal path (you can see this from your balcony). Loved waking up to the view from the main bedroom.

    Amazing view. Every little detail was thought of, which is rare when staying away from home. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Located in a lovely quiet area and still within walking distance of Brixham Harbour. Only downside was no pen to write a lovely review in the guest book. Will definitely be back!

  • "The apartment was perfect very well equipped and spotlessly clean."

    The only downside is the walk into town takes longer than suggested in reviews and is all uphill on the way back just impossible if you have mobility issues like me. However a taxi will drop you by the harbour for £4. One other thing to note, your car won’t be beside the flat the car park is a wee bit further back so you will need to carry your belongings from the car park to the flat. As it says in the description it’s a first floor flat, the stairs are manageable but when you add on the walk from the car park with cases etc it’s quite tough! Well worth it though for the view and the lovely accommodation. We had only one niggle. We couldn’t get into Netflix and contacted the number given to us by Sykes which turned out to be the cleaners number. She had to contact the owner and that took 2 days before she was able to get back to us - and then it was the wrong password but we gave up because we were leaving the next day but it raises the question of how quickly the owner responds if you have a problem

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback and we are really pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We are aware that the issue with the Netflix account has now been fixed. The cleaner referred this to the owner straightaway but it did take a little while to investigate and resolve. The reservations team are always happy to help with any mobility queries you might have prior to booking so please do get in touch when you are planning your next break. Property Owner

  • "The direction could have been better."

    The road name on which The Cove is situated was not given. The apartment was in a beautiful situation and was very well equipped. Sadly the weather was very poor but we were very comfortable as the rain came down.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback and we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed Bayview and the location. The directions supplied to all customers visiting Bayview are quite detailed and we have double-checked these to make sure they are accurate. Property Owner

  • "Accommodation was lovely with an amazing view across the bay (just like the photo)."

    Very clean and a few little unexpected extras included. There is currently some local construction work taking place in the area so quite noisy in the day if you were trying to relax on the decking. Also a little disappointed that the swimming pool wasn't open as this was one of the main reasons for booking. Understandable maybe in these times, but we weren't warned in advance.

  • "The facilities, the cleanliness the comfort the area were all absolutely spot on."

    Fantastic property and wouldn't think twice about returning. The only minor thing would be the decking outside got quite slippery when wet.

  • "Brilliant views across the expanse of Torbay and beyond to Lyme Bay and the Jurassic coast."

    Easy access on foot to Brixham on paved coast path. Great base for walking the south west coast path either east around Torbay to Torquay or west to Berry Head,Sharkham Point etc., or across country to Kingswear and the River Dart with return to Brixham by boat, steam train or bus:no need for car.

  • "Just a few minor issues, The gate code is not 1115 as per the confirmation email it’s- press Clear-02861-press Enter."

    The contact number is for the cleaning company, and they have not had a contract with the owners for this property for over 2 years. On arrival none of the beds were made up, there was some bed linen but we couldn’t tell wether it was clean or used, because it was just stacked on top of the dresser, so my wife had to wash it. But overall the property was great, in a great location and we intend to return again.

  • "Excellent location and overall, this was an outstanding experience."

    Brixham is a beautiful fishing town with plenty going on , and an ideal base for exploring south Devon. Pool was really warm and clean and the 2 coves on your doorstep are fabulous especially with resident seal making regular appearances. We had excellent weather and this was on par with any of our foreign jaunts.

  • "No notification of steep inclines , in all directions!"

    !. Slippery walkways when wet!!. Access & exit, only gained through balcony doors ( never had that before ). VERY uncomfortable bed, very little space around bed, have bruises to prove it!!!. Sofas not comfortable. Television much to high on wall. Both I, and my wife, have aching backs, and cricked necks, just watching TV!!!. Had to purchase 2 mugs, as all mugs were degrained inside. For a quiet place, not so quiet, first day, we had, drum & base from cafe, which started at 4pm, went on until 10:30pm. Every morning, we had the noise of a JCB, working, up the hill. The day before leaving, we had a morning car wash event, right below us. To compare this property, to any other, 2 bedroom apartment, we have stayed,( and there’s many), this would come bottom!!!!!!. Regards... Mr Chris Barton.

    Many thanks for leaving your feedback. The timber walkways do have a warning sign to advise they can be slippery when wet. Brixham is indeed steep in places and this is a first floor property: we do try to make this clear on the description. Though your access is through a patio door it is locked and secure just like any other entrance. We have slept in the double bed at Bayview shortly before your stay and didn’t feel it was uncomfortable but we will certainly review this again at the end of the season. The bedrooms are cosy rather than spacious but perfect for a rest after a long day out sight-seeing: photos are available on the website. There were 8 mugs at the property: I am sorry you didn’t feel these were suitable. The holiday park nearby does sometime play music in the clubhouse but we haven’t been disturbed by this previously. I am afraid the car-washing event and any JCB activity would be beyond our control. Property Owner

  • "Bedrooms uncomfortably small particularly the front bedroom which was almost entirely occupied by the standard-sized 4'6"" double bed!"

    ! Arrival instructions confusing and, with regard to the key-safe, difficult. Entry keypad very difficult to read in many different lights. Instructions need to be amended to comply with the keypad for the entry procedure. "Entry" not "open". The key-safe was very difficult to access which may have been through wear-and-tear through multiple use. It took many attempts to actually open despite always using the correct code. In the wind and rain we experienced upon arrival made the lengthy access to the apartment very, very uncomfortable. Another issue discovered upon arrival was to find the incorrect wifi code in the information folder.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback following your recent stay at Bayview. We've spoken with the owner who has informed us that he has now treated the keysafe at Bayview so that it is no longer difficult to open. We have also updated the instructions for the gate entry and the wifi code, thank you for bringing this to our attention, the owner recently changed WiFi providers and although the new code was on the back of the hub the information folder had not been updated, this has now also been done. We hope that despite the minor points raised you enjoyed your stay at Bayview. Property Owner

  • "Really enjoyed our stay at Bayview."

    The tea, coffee biscuits and wine were a nice welcome treat. Generally, the apartment was clean. However, the fridge smelt strongly of fish and needed a couple of good cleans before we felt we could put our food in it. There wasn’t anything to clean or wipe down the surfaces other than dish-washing liquid and it would have been handy to have bleach or a toilet cleaner in the bathroom too. Many of the drinking glasses were dirty, possible from the dish-washer but needed washing before we could use them. In the bathroom, due to the shape of the bath, a small grab rail for getting in and out of the shower would be useful.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback following your recent stay at Bayview. The owner of Bayview has spoken with his housekeeper following your comments, surface spray is now provided for guests, all kitchen items will be thoroughly checked for smears and although they did clean the fridge before your arrival, the short turnaround time was not sufficient to totally eradicate the smell left from previous guest’s food, however we can assure future guests that the fridge is back to its original tip top condition. It has also been noted that a grab rail may be useful in the bathroom and is something the owner will consider to add in the future. Property Owner

    with it being the first floor apartment just gives you a far better view point of the whole of Torbay. All the fittings are of top quality. Along With a lovely walk into Brixham Harbour which takes a steady 20 minutes, which has plenty of benches for a sit down if needed. The Apartment does look bigger in the photos TBH. We will go there again for sure.

  • "We were disappointed to find no mention of very hilly terrain and was not at all suitable for people with mobility difficulties."

    There was no proper freezer facilities, except a frozen up ice box in the fridge. The site from time to time had effluent smells, and noises from military Exhibitions and in the evenings noise until late from adjoining holiday home site clubhouse, even up to 3.30 am. This was definitely not value for money, and was not a peaceful and restful holiday we were hoping for. The property was advertised as a 4 person apartment, but it was not suitable due to lack of space, storage and facilities. The location was pleasant with a nice decking viewing platform. The advertised 16min walk to Brixham was for the very fit and healthy, and quite challenging for others.

    You even managed to provide glorious weather!!! As good a holiday as we've ever had! Note of caution for anyone with dodgy knees or hips - it is very hilly and access is a challenge, which probably means that we won't be back. However, we would recommend Bayview to anyone with better mobility than us. It is one of the best holiday properties that we have stayed in and worth every penny that it cost us.

    Stunning views. Lovely clean rooms. Really appreciate the finishing touches - tea, coffee, sugar and milk provided together with a bottle of wine and chocolates.

About the location

BRIXHAM

Dartmouth 5 miles; Paignton 6 miles; Torquay 8 miles.

Brixham is a working fishing harbour located on the southern side of Torbay, the area known as The English Riviera, famed for its sunny mild climate all year round. The focal point of the harbour is a life size replica of The Golden Hind, Sir Francis Drake’s ship. The prettiest part of Brixham has small cottages in hilly narrow winding lanes leading to the harbour where all the activity is centred. Home to Britain’s largest fishing fleet which regularly lands their catch in the harbour, Brixham fish market sells to major restaurants in the UK. Brixham is the ideal destination for a traditional holiday with many family attractions around Torbay including two Blue Flag beaches, Paignton Zoo and many regattas and maritime events throughout the year. 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. A good mix of relaxation or action, to suit all ages, where you are never far from the sea.
