    “The cottage was immaculate, spacious and well furnished.”

    Brixham was bustling and vibrant. We especially enjoyed evenings by the harbour; swims at St Mary's Bay; a walk round to Berry Head, with its magnificent views and lovely lunch at The Guardhouse cafe. Public transport links were very good, the bus station at easy walking distance from the cottage. We travelled by bus, steam train and foot ferry via Paignton and Kingswear to Dartmouth. Various ferries run from the harbour - we took a 'sea safari' and saw dolphins and a seals.

The property

A traditional Victorian terraced cottage, situated in the attractive Devon fishing village of Brixham.

With oak floors throughout the ground floor, a stone fireplace and feature wall, this Brixham cottage exudes character with a contemporary feel.

Providing ideal family accommodation, this three-storey cottage in Brixham has two double bedrooms on the first floor, one with an en-suite, along with a family room and a children's bunk room set on the second floor.

The galley kitchen comes suitably equipped and the sitting room is a cosy spot with its sociable dining area and comfortable seating nestled beside the fire.

At the rear of this Brixham cottage, the courtyard garden is sunny and private, offering an ideal corner in which to relax at the close of the day.

In just fifteen minutes’ walk you’ll find the busy harbour of this bustling town, where it is customary to watch the local fishermen land their catch.

The harbour front is flanked by a selection of family run bars and bistros offering fresh fish and the finest of local produce.

A short walk along the coastal path leads to a medley of pretty beaches and coves, as well as the ever-popular seawater swimming pool at Shoalstone.

Take the ferry to Dartmouth, which has a good reputation for fashionable restaurants, interesting boutiques and of course, all the amusement and activity along the waterfront.

Why not book a boat trip and cruise up the River Dart to Greenway, Agatha Christie’s former holiday home, and spend the afternoon in the lively market town of Totnes?

This lovely Brixham cottage is a wonderful space in which to while away a relaxing week on the English Riviera.

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.
