  • "We had a great stay at Midhurst."

    Perfect location for walking down into the harbour area.

  • "Midhurst is a beautiful property and we have had the best stay."

    All the rooms are lovely and big and the beds were extremely comfortable! Location of the property was perfect, within walking distance of Brixham and all its lovely pubs and restaurants. There’s a bus stop just outside of the house to get the bus to Paignton and Torquay every 10-15 mins which was perfect. The only slight negative we found was that the garden was overgrown which impacted on the space for 10 of us to sit out, also there wasn’t enough garden furniture to seat us all, but this wouldn’t stop us booking again, overall it was brilliant. Thanks for a great week.

  • "We were extremely disappointed with our stay and had to raise issues from day one."

    Kettle was dangerous as it just kept boiling, no washing bowl and no plug in sink. They were the small issues. Radiators broken and one on permanently which was unpleasant with it being warm outside! Not cleaned properly, crisps and dust found in drawers, balloons and dirt under sofa. Don’t get me started on the mould! In the kitchen under the sink, in the lean to, in the boiler cupboard and in the wardrobes. We couldn’t even hang our clothes (had to live hour of a suitcase). There is clearly a problem that needs addressing to stop the mould long term. Owners say they have cleaned it but unless treated properly this will come back! Facilities - there might be enough sleeping facilities for 11 but downstairs does not accommodate this. The kitchen is not big enough, table cannot seat 11 even if using the breakfast bar. No cupboards to put food in and only one small fridge (not enough space for 11). The pictures are deceiving and make this property look better than it is. For the amount we paid we would not come back and would not recommend this for families or anyone with health problems.

    We are really sad to read this feedback and are sorry to read that your time at Midhurst wasn’t as you had hoped. We are glad to have the opportunity to respond - your feedback needs to be put into context so as to give an accurate picture and reassure future guests that Midhurst is actually a wonderful holiday let. Of most importance, we would like to stress: Midhurst provides ample space for 11 guests. There are 2 sitting rooms and a kitchen/diner that has seating for 11. There is also an additional table and some chairs in the utility. Sykes is a reputable company and they would not advertise the house for 11 f it wasn’t possible for 11 to sit down to eat, and they would not provide misleading photographs of the house either. We regularly have groups of up to 11 guests and we have not ever had anyone complain about the accommodation. It is exactly as you’d expect from the description - it is a semi detached townhouse! If you want an enormous dining room you’re probably going to have to pay quite a lot more for a much larger, detached property. Other issues: The kettle and washing up bowl were sorted within hours of your arrival. 2 radiator valves were broken by previous guests. We offered to get the mended immediately but you were happy to leave it until you left. You didn’t raise the issue with the radiator that was on, if you had we could have helped. As it turns out, it wasn’t broken, it only needed to be turned off. The Electrian mended the broken 2 valves after you left. We have never been aware of any mould in the property and you did not raise this when you were at the house. If you had told us, we would have sorted it out immediately. We have now given all the wardrobes a thorough refresh and have treated the back of the cupboard under the sink. We work very hard to maintain high standards of cleanliness at Midhurst. We are committed to customer service and can assure you that if there is ever a problem we will resolve it as soon as possible. Midhurst is a lovely holiday let and it is very reasonably priced. We are sorry you didn’t enjoy the house as so many others have. It’s a shame you didn’t think to reach out to us, Sykes or our housekeeper during your stay - if you had we would have helped. Despite your review, you chose to remain at the house for the week and so we are glad you didn’t lose out on your holiday. Best wishes Lucy & Mark Property Owner

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.
