Property code: BX037

Traditional fishermen’s cottage with a sunny patio and sun room, both with views to Brixham harbour which lies just 200 metres from the property’s front door.

This property is located close to the harbour and town centre in delightful Brixham, one of three towns that make up the area known as the English Riviera. The area is known for its warm microclimate and there are a number of beaches close to the town centre which allow visitors to make the most of the warm waters and sunny days. One beach, at Shoalstone, even has a large 53-metre tidal pool, allowing safe bathing no matter what the conditions are out at sea. The town centre is a charming place with a good range of shops, as well as a number of pubs and family-run restaurants, many of which specialise in the local seafood which visitors can see the fishermen bringing home in the town’s harbour.

This characterful cottage is a great place to spend a few days away, and the guests will feel the welcoming, cosy atmosphere as soon as they enter. The front door opens into the sun room, an unusual addition to the property of this size, which offers a great place to have breakfast whilst watching the morning activity on the harbour. Then through to the lounge, with its inviting sofa, TV, Blu-ray player, and wood burner-effect gas fire, this room makes for a fantastic place to sit back, relax, whatever the weather and let the stresses of daily life melt away. Several steps lead to the dining room with Combi TV, whilst a few more steps lead to the kitchen. The style and age of the cottage means that these rooms have sloping ceilings and some reduced head-height, however, the kitchen is still well-equipped and offers an AGA double oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, Miele dishwasher, and washer/dryer. Winding cottage-style stairs lead to the first-floor where the bedroom is located, with its king-size Hypnos mattress bed, DVD player. Patio doors here open onto the balcony patio which has chairs provided to allow guests to sit at night with drinks and gaze out to sea. The shower room is also on this floor, with its shower and WC.

The property has a fantastic South/West facing balcony patio, located off the bedroom, which is the perfect spot for watching the fishing boats and pleasure craft come and go below.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 1 king-size bed 
  • Shower room with shower and WC
  • Oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine
  • TV and Blu-ray player.
  • Wi-Fi included
  • Electric, heating, bedlinen and towels included
  • 1 dog welcome, further by arrangement
  • Beach, pub, and shops all within walking distance
  • Please note that this property has sloping ceilings and a winding staircase
  • Brixham is busy fishing village situated on a very steep hill, so access to some parts of the village can be challenging.
  • There are many small winding streets that are not suitable for cars, therefore many properties in Brixham do not have private parking. However, alternative parking is available in local carparks.

A well-equipped quirky little cottage in a great location in the centre of Brixham. Parking can be tricky and the number of steps to the cottage may make it inaccessible for some. There is a fantastic sun terrace with great views of the harbour but being a small cottage, storage is limited.

This cottage has everything you need and is very clean and comfortable. It has an amazing view of the harbour from the balcony and the conservatory. Walking distance to shops, restaurants, pubs and the beach. Although we had to drive to a dog friendly beach. Parking is a bit difficult, and is extremely hilly.

The property is not recommended for people who are infirm and have difficulty with steep slopes and many steps, parking can be problematic for unloading/loading.However once in Brixham plenty to keep you busy, lots to see and walks galore.
