  • "The property is beautifully furnished and is located wonderfully on the Actual Quay."

    Thoroughly recommend it. Brixham itself is now very attractive compared to a few years ago. Well done. Advice, I would add that both the shower tray and bath need grab handles as they are like standing on ice. Otherwise 10/10. Great holiday thank you.

    I will certainly book this apartment again. We had the best views of the harbour and even had a brass band playing on the Thursday night. Fab choice of restaurants which all served lovely tasty food.

    This is our annual pilgrimage destination. Much as I like the view of my garden at home,it is trumped by waking up at Quayside to the harbour view. Shame we've lost a pub. (The Bullers). The others more than made up for it though. Already booked in for September.

  • "Fantastic location, couldn't ask for a better spot."

    Kitchen/lounge/diner was a really nice set up. Really comfy sofa. Plenty of pots and pans, crocks, glasses. Only 1tea towel though. WiFi very hit and miss. Beds comfy and plenty of storage space. Bathrooms are lovely but again very short on towels, 1 hand towel per bathroom and 1 bath towel for each guests (these don't even go round you if you are a bit chubby). There is soap, hand cream and air fresheners which is a nice touch. Loud and intrusive music from the bar nextbdoor on Friday and Saturday nights. The whole flat had a funky smell, maybe old, deep seated tobacco smoke and we noticed it on every entry. When opening the bedroom windows it leads to a flat roof which is in desperate need of attention. Bird droppings, mess, really unpleasant to look out on. Storage rooms were really junky, as were some kitchen cupboards and drawers, this detracts from the loveliness of the rest. As does the falling apart drawer unit in lounge. Plastic plants, would look better with nothing. No folder of information such as WiFi, appliance use, GP, restaurants etc. First holiday home I have stayed in without this. Overall a lovely holiday, but far from cheap even in March, and I think with a little attention it could be fantastic. . I think there areblors of

    However there was no heating in the lounge as the storage radiator was simply not working. Also the stated wifi was not working and the router actually belongs to the coffee shop below. Both problems were corrected promptly after reporting them to the owner. There was some cleanliness issues ie biscuit crumbs on the carpet and a dirty kitchen pedal bin. Very pleasant and helpful owners so the week was very enjoyable.

  • "Cut and paste from previous posts really!"

    The flat is immaculate. Right on the harbour, beautiful to wake up to. We park the car up in the car park and make the most of Brixham's hospitality all week. (Easy to buy a weekly car park ticket online before you travel). This will be refunded by your excellent hosts, Sian & Dean. Favourite pub - The Blue Anchor, good food menu with local fish included of course. Favourite pub with outside seating - The Old Market House. Pizzas seemed to be the only menu option. Two excellent Chinese takeaways and no shortage of fish and chips outlets. We will be back I am sure.

    We park up at start of holiday and rarely if ever use it again until time to go home. Would definitely recommend.

    Our only issue was with the parking arrangements. We expected to be given a parking permit but it transpired we had to arrange our own parking and then claim a refund from the owner. This was not a huge problem but it did mean a stressful start to our holiday.

    Despite overlooking the street, the bedrooms are at the back of the property and very quiet apart from the background noise of some kind of motor running constantly outside. Not sure whether this was an air conditioning unit or maybe generator. Within a minutes walk there are pubs, restaurants, cafes & takeaways alongside grocery stores, gift shops etc. Definitely recommend this accommodation and would stay here again for sure.

    Beautiful view over the harbour and everything within walking distance. The flat has been revamped to an even higher standard with both bathrooms absolutely superb. Second bedroom now has two single beds, not bunk beds, and is larger. A lovely place to stay. Brixham was very busy, but we had no trouble eating and drinking out! The Chinese takeaway opposite the Co-op in the High Street is to be recommended. Booked already for later in the year.

The property

A popular resort, where modern marina meets quaint fishing harbour and where you can watch the trawlers landing their catch, Brixham is a wonderful destination for a family holiday.

On the edge of the harbour, with glorious views and the boats feel so close you can almost reach out and touch them, is Quayside Lookout.

This smart first floor apartment is situated above a popular coffee shop, serving Fair Trade coffee as well as tasty cakes and pastries.

The open plan living area is light and spacious and two bedrooms at the rear of the property assure a quiet night's sleep.

Why not leave the car behind, take the nearby ferry and explore by sea, bus, or steam train which runs from nearby Dartmouth.

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.
