  • "We found another gem in Turnpike Cottage absolutely outstanding very comfortable and immaculately clean."

    Ivor and Dee were first class hosts and on site in case of any problems, which there wasn't. Ideally placed for visits within the local area places such as Torquay, Paignton and Totnes etc. Obviously we were there at the back end when the weather was hit and miss but there is a terrific garden at Turnpike Lodge for you to make use of subject to the weather. All in all we had a wonderful week and Ivor is a great raconteur who made us laugh and don't forget Bazil a beautiful and very friendly dog who visited us in the lodge.

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.
