Traditional fishermen’s cottage, situated close to Brixham town centre, with two separate outside spaces: a courtyard and raised sun terrace.

This property is located close to Brixham town centre, just a few minutes’ walk from the town’s busy harbour with its heritage fishing fleet, and tour boats. The whole region is known for the clear blue water and warm seas at the beaches, and there several beaches within easy reach of the town centre, including Shoalstone Beach which has the added bonus of a tidal pool, and quiet Fishcombe Cove. The coastal walks around the edges of the town are absolutely stunning, whether you fancy walking out to the lighthouse at Berryhead National Nature Reserve, or enjoying the picturesque six-mile hike to the neighbouring town of Paignton.

A number of external steps lead to the front door of this former-fishermen’s cottage, which opens directly into the cosy lounge, with its warming wood-burner , comfortable seating, and TV. Moving towards the rear of the property, past the stairs, guests come to the kitchen/diner, where there is a dining table seating four, an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine. A door from the kitchen area leads to the rear courtyard and steep steps to the elevated sun terrace. Wooden stairs lead to the first floor where there is an attractive double room which has a double bed, and built-in wardrobe. The bathroom is also on this floor, and offers the best of both worlds, with a corner bath, separate shower cubicle, and WC. Steep winding cottage-style stairs (unsuitable for children under five) lead to the second-floor bedroom, a charming twin room offering views across the town’s roof tops. Guests should be aware that this bedroom is in the eaves of the house and, therefore is subject to a reduced head-height.

Outside, the property benefits from a small enclosed courtyard garden and steep steps which lead to the elevated sun terrace, this is set to shingle and has a table and bench seating, a quiet space overlooking the town with garden furniture, making an excellent space to enjoy drinks in the sun. Guests should be aware that this is a high-level terrace and steep stairs lead to it, therefore it is not suitable for under-fives.

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

  • 2 bedrooms:
  • 1 double and 1 twin
  • 1 large Bathroom with bath, separate shower, and WC
  • TV
  • Wi-Fi included
  • Wood-burner (a welcome fire pack)
  • Oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine
  • Electric and heating included
  • Bed linen and towels included
  • 2 dogs welcome
  • Steep stairs both inside and out make this property unsuitable for under 5's and the window of the bedroom is a fire escape and has no lock fitted
  • Beach, shops, and pubs all within walking distance
  • Brixham is busy fishing village situated on a very steep hill, so access to some parts of the village can be challenging.
  • Many of the amenities and cottages in Brixham are accessed via steps some of which can be steep.
  • Please contact us if you have specific requirements.
  • 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.

The property was so clean, best one we have been too, in cleanliness. We felt looked after with clear instructions and products which we where very grateful for. Highly recommended especially for couples with older children, the stairs to the second bedroom is not recommended for very young children or older people. Beautiful cottage and we enjoyedRead more our stay. Big thank you to the owners and cleaner.. Would love to come back. Hide

Hosts were great, super friendly and helpful. Would recommend it, we enjoyed the hill, it has various routes so you can either do a flight of steps, or a few steps and a gradual hill, all manageable and good exercise, 5 minutes to harbour. Top bedroom is cute but can be a bit loud in the winds (not cottage's fault, just a note). Didn't use the outsRead moreide space as February. Hide

Very much enjoyed our stay, cottage is nicely decorated with all you need and retains some original features. Stairs and garden would be challenging for very young or less able. Close to harbour via steps, but that is Brixham. Manor pub nearby is lovely.

Lovely, welcoming cottage nicely decorated and furnished. Comfortable bed, good shower. We didn't cook while were there but the kitchen seemed well kitted out. If you want somewhere with a good garden space this is not for you but there is an area outside the back door convenient for the dog and a small area up some steep steps if you wanted to sitRead more outside. Great location, 5 minute walk down a couple of flights of steps to the harbour or a few minutes walk up the hill to a park for the dog. Hide

A lovely old workers cottage which had everything I could have needed for me to recover from walking the SW coast path each day. Brixham has very steep slopes and there are also steep stairs in the cottage. The seagull was a bit reluctant to share the sun terrace as she has built her nest up there! Perfect holiday for me and my dog.

Family of four including two young lads stopped for the Easter week. We had a great week and the lads really enjoyed stopping at the cottage. Very quaint and different however a family of four adults would feel a little cramped. Equipment was acceptable and cottage was very clean and well kept. Excellent location for walking down to the harbour andRead more up to Berryhead, will book again for next year. Hide
