  • "We had a lovely stay at this wondeful house."

    All was modern, clean and comfortable and everything had been thought of. The views from the house were second to none! Having your own parking space was great but difficult to get out of when someone parked on the road opposite. Not far to walk into town, but could be difficult walking back for some - we had our daily workout several times a day! We will definitely be back!

  • "Aside form the property being spotlessly clean and tidy in great location the owners were absolutely amazing!"

    Contacted us to say we could check in early if we wanted to, had put Xmas decorations throughout the property, had left a very generous 'hamper' of food and drink goodies. So kind and thoughtful-made the holiday experience one our best ever!

    Excellent facilities, clean and very presentable. A Highly recommended property, thoughtfully furnished. We would happily stay there again if the owners would have us.

    An exceptional property in a fabulous location. From the moment we stepped into the property we both knew we had found a perfect place to relax. We cannot recommend this property highly enough and have already booked to return next year.

  • "What a fabulous holiday cottage, everything you need."

    The views of the harbour are just brilliant, spent many a minute watching the fishing boats come in. Brixham is such a lovely little place and the cottage is ideally situated for exploring Brixham but also close to Dartmouth, Paignton and Torquay to name but a few. Can't wait to visit again and would definately book into Quayside View if available.

  • "We stayed here from the 7th to the 14th July and loved every minute."

    The views are amazing, we spent every night and morning sat at the window upstairs looking down at the harbour, the binoculars were a great touch. The house was spacious, cosy and had everything we needed and more, the owners left us toiletries, cleaning products and treats, we were so grateful , my husband and I both said its the best holiday home we have stayed in, the house has WiFi which was great for us to book our days out whilst on holiday, the bed was so comfy , we both slept amazingly and our teenage son loved his stay too, it's such an added bonus to have off road parking too. The location is perfect, just down the steps and a 5 minute walk you're at the harbour, Brixham is beautiful and we can't praise the house and owners enough. Thank you for enabling us to have the best holiday and we hope to return

    Thank you for your amazing feedback. A holiday is very special and we are glad we could help you achieve it. Property Owner

  • "We loved staying in this beautiful house."

    It was so pretty and the photos do not do it justice. The rooms are bright with fab decorations, and the furnishings are so comfortable. Having 2 parking spaces was really brilliant as the roads are narrow. The steps up to the house from the harbour would be difficult for someone with mobility problems but there are taxis about to drop you up and lots of parking down in the harbour. We would love to go back and definitely recommend this holiday home.

  • "Quayside is a lovely, clean, well-equipped cottage."

    It is in a great location (as long as your knees can cope with steps), as it's very close to the centre of Brixham and a beach, but is high enough up to be quiet at night. Lovely touches like milk in the fridge, and tea, coffee and biscuits are very thoughtful.

  • "Quayside view was spotlessly clean, and very well equipped, the owners had thought about absolutely everything."

    It exceeded our expectations. All the rooms were decorated and furnished to a very high standard. The welcome treats from the owners were very much appreciated too. The parking spaces at the property were an added bonus, and the view from the property over the harbour and bay towards Torquay were wonderful, especially the fireworks for the Coronation. A fantastic property but the very steep climb back up to the house is not suitable for people with mobility problems.

    The photos are accurate, it is comfy, and was the perfect place to stay for us. The owners left a very kind welcome package, which was a lovely touch, and we are definitely considering renting Quayside View again next year. The only thing I would say to be wary of is that Brixham is very hilly, and there are a lot of steps and steep climbs to get up to this property. If you have limited mobility, then this probably isn't the best choice. Other than that, it's a lovely holiday base.

    Parking was easy but getting back out required a little thought and a 3 point turn. Walk into town was easy (downhill) as was the cab back (£5), which was worth every penny. Restaurants in Brixham and surrounding area were amazing.

    Spotlessly clean, in fact the cleanest holiday home I’ve ever stayed in. The attention to detail was superb. Everything was catered for. Lovely welcome pack too. The view - wow. Enjoyed a few glasses of wine on the patio watching the harbour. Great to have a drive at the front of the property, but it was a bit of a squeeze to get out if someone was parked on the yellow lines opposite. Already looking at dates to return. Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday.

    It was spotlessly clean, the quality of the furniture was excellent and the decor bright and fresh. We loved the views from the elevated position and the steps up from the harbour helped to work off the local pasties and tasty fish and chips. Having a parking place was a real bonus in Brixham, as was the close proximity to the Southwest Costal Path which was just a short walk away. Vanessa and Trevor were exceptionally helpful when we accidentally left items behind and the welcome pack was a very thoughtful addition. We really hope to stay at Quayside View again before too long.

    The house was extremely well presented and exceptionally clean. The owners have thought of everything you might need and left some lovely extras for us to enjoy our stay which we thought was a really nice touch. The views of the harbour from the house were my favourite and it’s literally a short walk into town so everything is on your doorstep. Parking is also worthy of a mention as that can be tricky in Brixham but this house has a large driveway suitable for two small or one large car. All in all we had a great stay despite the weather doing its best to ruin in it and would love to come back! Highly recommend this lovely holiday house

  • "Absolutely fabulous!"

    Stunning views of the English Riviera, beautiful sunsets, very comfortable, Brixham a very picturesque town. We were a party of 6, and the house was plenty big enough. The house is very well equipped and the owners included some lovely touches. They Includied a hair dryer, torches in each room and a set of binoculars, spare batteries in the kitchen, biscuits, fudge, milk, tea and coffee , everything needed for cleaning, washing up and laundry, toiletries in the bathroom. The house is 5-10 mins walk downhill from the harbour, the lovely breakwater beach, and the town. There are 2 co-ops and a Tesco Express in the town as well as many places to eat. Beware, walking up is not so easy, the walk back up is Very steep- may be difficult if you have knee problems or mobility issues. ( you could always drive though, as there are a number if car parks) On Thursday mornings you can book a sea kayak adventure at the kayak club for £15, there are also free lifeboat tours in the harbour. Our teens had a fantastic 3 hour paddle boarding session for £20 with grenville house. We very much enjoyed crabbing in the harbour and our visit to the golden hind museum boat. Our teens took the ferry from torquay to brixham and it cost £2 each and took 20 mins- quicker than driving and cheaper than parking. Fantastic holiday. Would definately recommend.

  • "Booked last minute and was not disappointed."

    This house is set high above the harbour with sea views from the lounge and master bedroom windows which was lovely. The house was clean and had everything we needed for the holiday. Clearly the owners have pride in their property and have not skimped on anything. It was great to be able to walk into town and walk along to the beach. We didn't use the car during our stay. The only negative was the downstairs bathroom which we would compromise on again as everything else was wonderful. Brixham was perfect for us but I would not recommend for families with young children/babies or the elderly as there are a lot of very very steep steps down to the town/beach/harbour. All in all this was a gem of a find.

A thriving fishing port and now very popular tourist destination, Brixham has something to offer all ages and interests.

A short walk downhill from the cottage will take you to the busy harbour, lined with cafes and restaurants, a lovely spot to sit and watch as the trawlers land their daily catch.

Stroll along beside the marina and on for a dip in the iconic Shoalstone sea water swimming pool.

For a swim in the sea, Breakwater Beach and Fishcombe Cove can be reached on foot and a little further away the magnificent beaches of Torbay are perfect for family days out.

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.
