  • "We had a lovely stay, everything was clean and tidy when we arrived."

    Parking was easy enough for us but I think it would be very difficult in the height of summer. The only issue was the heating, when we arrived the house was lovely and warm but the heat didn't come on the next 2 evenings. We did contact the person on the information and he put the heating on asap.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are thrilled you had a lovely stay. We are sorry that you had trouble with heating, the owner has informed us that you can alter the temperature with the stat in the living room. We do hope that we can welcome you back to the area soon. Property Owner

  • "Prior to our holiday I contacted Sykes about the baby facilities and was told that if the listing said that items were available they would be at the property on arrival - they were not, so we had to make phone calls to get the High chair & stair gate out for us - the travel cot was in one of the bedrooms -although it was rather grubby!"

    We were asked not to use the shower in the bathroom as the shower screen had been broken by previous guests?? which meant that 6 adults only had the use of 1 shower.

  • "This property has a great location but continues to be let down by issues that have been reported many times before in online reviews."

    These are mainly ( I have photos if you would like them) - decking filthy - no wood/wood burner not functioning - no welcome pack (well only a pint of milk) - old rusty parasol holder - filthy mop - no cleaning materials -paint flaking off the walls in the kitchen are.

The property

Blue Buoy Cottage is a wonderful property dating back to the 1800’s and is situated in the quaint fishing port of Brixham.

The accommodation is over four floors with fantastic Sea views enjoyed from each level overlooking the fish market, marina, breakwater and across the bay to Torquay. As you enter this charming period property into the spacious sitting room you are drawn to the stunning sea views from the French doors which open up onto a decked balcony.

There is also a woodburning stove making this property ideal for breaks at any time of year. A staircase leads down to the large kitchen and dining room.

A fabulous social space to sit and dine after a day out exploring the nearby Berry Head Napoleonic Forts.

Bi-folding doors open up onto a large decked terrace, an ideal spot to sit and relax over a glass of wine taking in the exceptional views over this fishing port.

There is also a shower room with large walk in cubicle, wc and washbasin located on this level. The three bedrooms are located on the upper floors of the property.

The main bedroom features a double bed with French doors opening onto a Juliet balcony.

Bedroom Two has a double bed and the third bedroom is located on the top floor and has two single zip and link beds (can be made into a superking on request).

Please note that this bedroom is located up a narrow staircase and has limited head height due to the sloping ceilings and therefore might not be suitable for guests with limited mobility.

All the bedrooms also have TVs.

There is also a family bathroom on the first floor with a bath, shower over, wc and wash hand basin. The harbour, shops and restaurants are all within a 5 minute walk from the property.

Enjoy a stroll around this wonderful fishing port and watch the trawlers heading out to sea for the days catch, explore the Golden Hind or take a walk along the South West Coast Path to St Marys Bay and Beach. Blue Buoy Cottage provides an ideal location for you and your family to relax and enjoy your holiday within the English Riviera.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


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.
