The property

An endearing, chalet-style property boasting far-reaching views of the wonderful Devonshire coast, tucked away within the fishing town of Brixham.

This superbly appointed accommodation houses all the essentials for a week-long stay at the coast, as well as the added benefit of use of the Holiday Park facilities, which include an indoor heated swimming pool.

Upon entering the property, you are welcomed into a brightly decorated, open-plan living room, where you and your loved ones can look forward to spending your down time.

The kitchen area houses all the essentials that you will need to rustle up a home-cooked meal before joining the rest of the group at the dining table to share your holiday stories and to plan the days ahead.

After dinner, curl on the plush sofa and tune into the TV or flick through the selection of films that await you.

As the evening draws to a close, look forward to retiring to one of the well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a double bedroom and a bedroom with 2 single beds, offering a flexible sleeping arrangement to suit any family.

The interior of each bedroom enjoys a nautical theme, which serves as a quiet reminder of your wonderful surroundings, ensuring a refreshing space to wake up to each morning.

To the outside of the property, spend a moment or two upon the lawn area, where you can enjoy your breakfast during the summer months before making the most of the outstanding facilities, which include an indoor swimming pool and an on-site shop and bar, offering a tasty menu and a takeaway option.

A short stroll from the cottage will bring you to the picture postcard town of Brixham, where you can explore the market, take in the sea views or enjoy a boat trip that runs from the pretty harbour.

Alternatively, a little further afield will bring you to sandy beaches, the National Trust property of Fishacre House and the Paignton Zoo.

The Plaice In The Corner is a wonderful base for a memorable break within this corner of Devon.

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.
