  • "Sam and Anton made this holiday easy with the home to home comforts."

    They thought about everything to the welcoming hamper to the blankets on the sofa. The place us big enough that you are can retreat in your own space and recovery for lunch outside. As amazing place and well located.

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.
