The property

Set close to Brixham harbour and town centre, the elevated position providing captivating harbour views, Blue Horizon is a delightful two bedroom cottage, set across three floors.

Character features including exposed stone walls and timber beams a nod to the history of this cosy fisherman's cottage that has been tastefully refurbished and will have great appeal as a family or romantic getaway.

A flight of steep stone steps bring you to the front patio and entrance of the cottage, where immediately you will appreciate the super views afforded from this sweet and welcoming seaside cottage.

The charismatic dining room furnished with an oak dresser adorned with pretty polka-dot crockery leads through into a modern neat kitchen where views to the harbour can be enjoyed whilst preparing meals.

An open tread winding staircase takes you to the first floor living room with patio doors opening onto a sunny balcony, the best position to relax and enjoy the comings and goings of the fishing boats in the harbour.

Amply proportioned the family bathroom is modern with bath and separate shower.

A staircase to the second floor reveals two lovely bedrooms both with sea and harbour views.

Tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac, you have worry free parking on a narrow drive across from the property, however reversing down the street is the best way to access the driveway due to lack of turning space.

A short walk down a series of steps will lead you to the harbour and town centre of Brixham, a vibrant fishing town with cafes, restaurants and plenty of shops.

Enjoy Breakwater beach voted one of the cleanest Blue Flag beaches on the English Riviera or walk the coastal footpath through Battery Gardens to Fishcombe Cove or further on Churston Cove, both picturesque coves ideal for kayaking or swimming and often quieter in Summer months.

Take the ferry to Dartmouth or Torquay or enjoy a day trip to Greenway, the former home of Agatha Christie.

A delightful cottage for families or couples to enjoy across all seasons.

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.
