  • "Missing clearing in front of the house and the outside place near the kitchen."

    We reportet a missing remote control in the livingroom to Sykes but notering happend. Parking was hopeless.

    Thank you for the feedback, I have contacted Sykes Cottages who have confirmed that no contact was made, if contact was made, we would have rectified this for you. I have spoken to my cleaner, who said the remotes where there so not too sure what this was for? Parking in the summer months can be difficult all around Brixham due to the popularity of the seaside town, there is a massive carpark located not far from the cottage which most customers use and never have a problem.

  • "Loved our stay and found the cottage itself was so comfy and clean , it had everything you could wish for , the only one criticism we could find with the place and this is genuinely the only one I wish the description of the outside area was more accurate it did say it had a garden - this is just a small square and not a place a family of four could sit out on an evening !"

    But as stated above we would definitely return ! Brixham we’ve had a blast

  • "Parking is a major issue with this property, all on street parking nearby is time limited to 2 hours between 8am-6pm (I got one parking ticket during my stay) the other parking alternative is a pay and display carpark about 1/2 mile away."

    Pot luck with any other parking options. Outdoor seating area tiny, totally unsuitable for a property that sleeps 6 people, this area was also very dirty. Other than that the property was lovely and we enjoyed our stay in Brixham.

    It is not suitable for anyone who has difficulty walking. It is more than a 2 minute walk to bars and restaurants. The parking is also an issue, we had to park on a pay and display which was some distance uphill to the property

    Lovely clean cottage with everything you could ask for including dishwasher tablets and wash capsules which I wasn't sure whether I needed to take or not couldn't ask for a better house so cosy Only downsides were that there wasn't a garden would've been lovely to be able to sit outside, parking is a nightmare and definitely isn't suitable for anyone with mobility issues as its up on a hill with around 4 lots of steep steps to climb

  • "Downstairs floors appeared not to have been hoovered, no milk left in fridge, one of the Bath towels had Bleach mark stains on it, large cobweb in between bedroom curtains, main bath appeared to have fluff/dust in it along with a hair, outside courtyard wasn’t inviting and also the bedding and duvet had a musty smell to it along with the bath towels, had to put them in on a hot wash to get rid of the smell."

    Overall not good at all.

    We are sorry to hear that the cottage didnt meet your expectations, However, You never contacted Sykes cottages to express your concerns. I spoke to you on the day of arrival as you were not happy that the hallway had a little bit of moss on the floor which had been blown in when the door have opened, which my cleaner came up within 10 minutes so hoover it again. unfortunately this is something we cant control as the wind tends to blow if both doors are open at anytime, or can be brought in from shoes. I for one know that the cottage floors were cleaned to a very high standard as the week before the cottage had a deep clean with all floors and carpets professionally cleaned as well as all maintenance work done. deep cleans are done every 6 months to maintain the high quality standards as well as it been cleaned every time the cottage is used. I am sorry that the brand new towels weren't up to your standard,maybe i will consider where I purchase them from in future. The cobweb in the room is from a little money spider that which I do believe that you addressed with my cleaner on the day of arrival as you wanted her to remove it. I would also like to thank you for rearranging the furniture in the cottage and all the kitchenware, however, we have decided we would like to keep it as it has been over the years as this works better for everyone else that has stayed.

  • "We had a lovely stay in pebble bay, lovely home with everything you need, beds really comfotarable bed linen lovely and fresh."

    For those who arent familiar with area its important to note parking is not simple when you initially arrive, no street parking outside property, so difficult if you have luggage and small children, bit stressful, but once you are familiar with area it is easier. Our kids loved sleeping in bunk beds, their bedroom had books and plenty of games for them to play. The description of property says patio/garden, would not describe as either only handy for drying clothes, Only small criticism we have with property, but no need for garden as 2 minute walk up the road takes you to fantastic kids park, opposite school. Enjoyable break .

    We've just returned from a great week at pebble bay, the cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay, and lovely views of the harbour from all floors. No trouble parking all week in the side roads near the bowls club. Enjoyable days at national trust properties Coleton fishacre and Greenway (Both within 20 minutes), Paignton zoo and the living coasts in Torquay. Our 2 girls (7 and 5) also loved Broadsands beach and crabbing in brixham harbour. Would definitely recommend the cottage and Location and we will be booking a return

  • "Fantastic holiday in Pebble Bay cottage."

    Extended family 5 of us from age 9 to 69. Beautiful location , view of harbour from bedrooms Fantastic decor. Exceptionally well furnished with top notch fittings. Quirky and brilliant use made of every area to maximise space especially top bedroom with cute ensuite. Good facilities, including Wi-fi and TV, washer and dishwasher. Luxurious main bathroom with roll top bath and free standing shower also. Spotless clean and well looked after. Quite a few narrow stairs but we soon got use to them. Lovely green close by . Poppy loved to win grandad at football there, and visit The Golden Hind pirate ship on the harbour. Good exercise. Brixham is a lovely harbour town, plenty of restaurants and lovely walks. Beautiful coastline, easy walk to town, though quite hilly, soon got used to it, several ways to it , broadsteps best way. Berry Head is a must to visit, lovely little cafe, great views. Good base for Paignton , Goodrington Sands, Totnes, Dartmouth, Torquay, Broadsands Take the bus if you don't want to drive. Plenty of boat trips also. Very friendly locals and well looked after clean streets with lovely flowers everywhere. To top it all , after a cold start the weather turned out to be fantastic for April .Will definitely be back .

    Fresh bright lovely and clean, well presented home from home. Boost to have the dishwasher & washing machine. The steps were a bit challenging 2 of us have dodgy knees! We soon found it easier to walk up the roads better for our knees and legs!! Suggestion: please could you give each person an extra hand towel each. Also need a lock on the bathroom door! bit of a laugh as we had to shout out "gardyloo" or some such silliness!! We were so fortunate with the weather glorious & warm. Definitely recommend to Friends & Family.

    on arrival, there was a caddy full of tea, a new jar of coffee and milk in the fridge. the owner also left two packs of biscuits to welcome us. The house was very well appointed and had plenty of saucepans and frypans and there were more than enough cups, glasses etc, even a block of sharp knives, which is great for those of us that like to cook. There were more than enough power sockets and storage room. The double beds were really comfortable and the bunk beds, full sized. The en suite bedroom had a good view over the harbour.

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.
