The cottage is gorgeous. Really well equipped and decorated very well. The beds are really comfortable and there is everything you need for a week away. The garden is a little sun trap but unfortunately, the weather wasnt very kind or we would have used it more. Its about a 20 minute walk to the harbour which we did every day. We would recommend thRead moree Prince William in the harbour, the staff/food/drinks were very good. On our one dry day, we did the walk from Berry Head to St Mary's bay. Hide

Had a Fabulous time! Great location, was about a 15 minute straight walk to the harbour and town! Parking was a definite plus! Cottage was immaculate and garden is a little sun trap! If you are eating out give The Prince William a try, you cant book but worth waiting for a table! Greenway is also a Wonderful day out with breathtaking views over to Read moredittisham and if you can take a boat over and have a drink at the pub on the harbour wall!! Going Back for another visit is a MUST for us!! Hide

We had a great break at this lovely cottage. Had nice walks to the Marina and early morning walks around nearby St Marys park with our little dog. The bed was very comfy and the cottage is nicely renovated and in an ideal spot for visiting areas of South Devon. We would both recommend and stay again.

Great little cottage in an ideal spot for walking to and from the beautiful quaint harbour , we would definitely recommend booking restaurants as in busy times you cant get in the good places .

We also went toRead more Teignmouth, Paignton , Dartmouth and Salcombe , absolutely lovely . Hide

Lovely cottage in convenient location for Brixham. Chinese restaurant at the end of the road recommended. Spar Shop 2 min walk, very useful. Plenty to do in surrounding area. Recommend Broadsands Beach and the Paignton-Dartmouth steam train.

A lovely cottage about a twenty minute walk to the harbour which is the main focus of the area. Having it's own parking bay is a huge bonus. Separate dining area from the living room so plenty of room to spread out. Good broadband and dog friendly. We took our dog everywhere. The area is so welcoming we were able to achieve all that we planned withRead more our cockapoo. Paddling, boat rides, cafes and restaurants etc. Lovely week spent here. Hide

We had a lovely time at Horsepool Cottage, beautifully decorated and the garden was a lovely sun trap. The local Spa was very handy, if you like walking then the walk to Brixham is fine but is uphill coming back, there was a playing field near the church which was excellent for dog walking and our dog had a lovely time meeting lots of new friends.
