Property code: BX019

Cottage property located overlooking Brixham’s working harbour, with a terrace area for enjoying the sea views and fresh sea air, within walking distance of all the town’s amenities.

This property enjoys an enviable location to the east side of Brixham town centre, just a short downhill walk to the town’s marina and the gardens of Furzeham Green. The coastal path runs very close to the property, allowing guests easy access to walks around the bay and to one of the town’s quieter beaches, Fishcombe Cove. To the west side of the town, there are several other beaches including Shoalstone beach with its tidal pool, and the secluded St Mary’s Bay. Why not take to the water and hop on board one of the pleasure boats or join one of the chartered fishing trips? Those who enjoy browsing the shops and sampling the local eateries will enjoy an afternoon spent window shopping and eating in one of the numerous restaurants or pubs, many of which specialise in the local seafood.

On arrival at this property, guests pass the front patioed seating area before coming to the front door which opens into the open-plan lounge/diner. There are spectacular views of the harbour to be enjoyed from this room; both from the dining table and the comfy sofa (which can be converted to two single beds if required), and of course there is a TV here too. The kitchen is situated to the rear of the property, accessed via two steps up from the lounge. Guests can easily make themselves at home here, as it is easy to find everything they will need including an oven, hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment, dishwasher and washing machine. The first of the property’s two bedrooms can be found on the first floor; a twin room with a single bed and truddle pull out below. This room has a den area with a TV and games console which is separated from the sleeping area by a curtain, and makes a great room for younger guests to enjoy their own space. The shower room, with walk-in shower and WC is also located on the first floor. The master bedroom can be found on the second floor, accessed via the twin room and offers a king-size bed, spectacular sea views, and a door which leads out to the decked seating area. 

Outside, there is a terrace with table and chairs to the front of the property, as well as the decked patio area accessed via the second-floor bedroom. Both of these spaces offer a relaxing place to sit back and take in the sea air, whilst watching the comings and goings in the harbour from the front terrace.

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

  • 1 king-size

Ill start with the only positive which was the incredible view! Sadly, apart from that I could not possibly recommend it. It was extremely smelly. Filthy dirty, kitchen cupboards were really dirty & grimy along with the contents, also very smelly. Rubbish bin full, recycling full. Very unhygienic and unwelcoming!

Great location, the view from every room was stunning, a short walk to the harbour, giving access to all the towns facilities within minutes. Great walks from the doorstep along beautiful coastal paths to secluded coves. As with most properties in Brixham very hilly and dozens of steps to negotiate everywhere you go.

Superb position in a nice quiet area but still handy for the town. The steps are very steep up to the property but if you park next to the green behind its easier to walk to the property, assuming you can find a parking space. The property is very comfortable with another sitting room on the middle floor, good for the kids with a tv. The seating arRead moreea out front overlooking the harbour is superb, we sat out every night even though it was really cold. You are handy for the ferry too. Hide

We had a wonderful stay in this cottage. 4 nights for a family of 4. Its cosy sweet. It has a really good feeling about it. The view is unbelievable. I could have sat in the window all day. The location is easy access to the SW coast path and to the town centre - taking less than 10 mins to both. Would definitely stay again.

You won't get better views than this & it's a 5 minute walk to the harbour. The beds were comfortable and it was nice to be able to log into Netflix on the TV! Plentiful parking waterside (8.50/day) you'll need to be fit to negate all the steps down to it though.

A lovely, comfortable cottage with fantastic views over Brixham harbour and Torbay. There is a short walk from the nearest road or car parking space to get to the cottage, which is set into the hillside, so you need to carry all your stuff up / down to it. Not a problem for us but worth bearing in mind !

Lovely views across the Quay and marina. Only a short 5 minute walk to shops and town. Good pubs and cafes. Very friendly town also very dog friendly too. Steep hills though so need to be reasonably fit. No parking at cottage but can park on roads a few minutes back up the hill.
