  • "What a superb place."

    Ivan the owner went out of his way to provide us with as much information as we would need. The walk from the harbour isn't as challenging as you think, however for” later years” or people with difficulty walking there is a bus stop twenty yards from the property which runs until 1800. Battery Gardens are 20 yards away, so excellent for that quick dog walk in a morning. The property has everything you need. A lovely balcony, which would be superb on a sunny morning for breakfast (we didn't get to use it as it was cold when we visited). Lovely furnishings, very comfortable bed and great parking. Would stay again, most definitely.

    Ivan welcomed us on our first day, made us feel very welcome. The property had everything you could need for a self catering stay, loved the teapot! Bed was very comfortable and heating was easy to manage. Was a 15 minute walk into the harbour, be warned, it's very hilly lol Very easy to get to Dartmouth, Paignton and Torquay. Almost feel like I don't want to give too glowing a review in case it's booked up next time we may want to stay! Thank you again Ivan and Vicki

But he phoned us to check that we had arrived OK. And to see if we needed anything. Then on the Sunday come round to see if we needed anything. And to show us we're the bin was and explain he would sort out the recycling bin by the front door. Really nice man with a really nice cottage.

    Accommodation is 'spot on' as is the location and the on site parking is a bonus. We stayed there early last year and although we had a lot of rain it didn't put us off so came straight home & booked it for this year. The little balcony off the bedroom is so relaxing, we enjoyed sitting out there in the evening with a glass of wine and watching over towards the sea. Monkbarns is an ideal holiday property, well equipped & even has a bus stop outside with hourly bus service into Brixham as walk back is quite steep. Very nice Welcome pack of goodies greeted us, much appreciated after a long journey.

    A big bonus if you have a dog is the proximity of a large park, it's pretty much literally next door, plus the opportunity for many walkies around the headlands. The cottage is modern and well furnished with plenty of room for a couple, and the owners are only next door, and very helpful, should you need them.

There is a park a couple of minutes away that was great to take the dog for a walk. Just be careful and have the dog on the lead before you come out of the door as the road is directly on the boundary and there isn’t a gate. Lots of lovely walks direct from the property.

    The accommodation was ideal for us; about 10 minutes scenic stroll from the harbour (downhill) – about 15 minutes coming back. Ivan and Vicki are first-class hosts, most helpful and knowledgeable and suggested restaurants both in Brixham and in the nearby countryside. Ivan was on hand and responded very quickly to any queries we had which were very few anyway. Glorious views from bedroom balcony across the bay and great sunsets at night. It was a very peaceful and comfortable place to stay and spotlessly clean. It was also very well equipped.

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.
