Three-storey period property with attractive original features, offering stunning views of Brixham harbour, within walking distance of the town centre and beaches.

This property is located near to Brixham town centre within easy reach of the historic harbour, once the stomping ground for the area’s notorious pirates. For those who want to learn more about the town’s chequered history, there is a popular self-guided walking tour which follows in the footsteps of Black Beard. The town also has a fantastic replica of Sir Francis Drake’s ship, The Golden Hind, which makes for an interesting afternoon spent exploring the decks and the hands-on exhibits. Of course, this part of Devon is well-known for its beaches and there are several within easy reach of Brixham town centre, including the main Breakwater Beach, which is just a short walk from the property.

Perched above the outer harbour and enjoying spectacular views over the marina, breakwater and across Torbay to Torquay is this delightful end terrace house. The Lookout is set above the road on a private pedestrian approach reached by either a 7 step or a 17 step flight of stairs, flagged by wrought iron railings and enjoying sea views.

The Lookout sleeps eight people and makes a great place for a larger group holiday or family celebration. The main living area is on the ground floor, comprising the lounge, dining room, and kitchen. The lounge is a homely and cosy space in which to relax, with comfortable seating a Smart TV/DVD player and coal-effect electric fire. The dining room is next to the kitchen and offers a place for formal meals or somewhere to sit and read in front of the electric effect log burner. The kitchen though modestly sized is well-equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine, in fact everything guests will need to make themselves at home.

The outside door from the kitchen opens out onto a small courtyard with steep steps which take guests up to the raised decked terrace. The first floor is where guests will find the first of the four bedrooms: a double room with marina views and an en-suite shower room with walk-in shower and WC. The main bathroom is also on this floor, which has a sumptuous roll-top bath, a separate walk-in shower, and WC. Stairs lead to the second floor, where the three remaining bedrooms are located: two doubles and one bunk bedroom.

Behind the property there are 3 level terraces, which is accessed from the ground-floor. There are steep steps leading to all 3 levels, therefore we advise that children are carefully supervised. The terraces provide spectacular views over Torbay, The steps up to the terraces are unlit and are dark at night. The table and chairs on the terrace provide the perfect space to enjoy drinks whilst taking in the stunning views. The property provides guest with a free parking space for the marina car park, which is 400 metres from the property, this must be arranged prior to arrival.

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

The Lookout is in the perfect location. It is close to the town and harbour. We'd also recommend the BerryHead Hotel which is a short, flat walk. The cottage has many steep stairs so those with mobility problems will find this property difficult. It's comfortable and beautifully furnished. The beds are extremely comfortable. The kitchen is well equRead moreipped and everything is very clean. However, the rear of the cottage could do with some maintenance to make it safer and it also needs lighting. Hide

The house is lovely, and is clean and spacious. The bedrooms are very good with comfortable beds. The bathrooms are also very decent, but could perhaps do with some extra selving for toiletries. The property is in a great position, very near the harbour, shops and pubs. The views from the decking are wonderful, but the steps to reach this are very Read moresteep and somewhat worn in places, so great care is needed. We had a very good holiday and found lots to do in Brixham and the surrounding area. Hide

The house is in a great location with a short walk to the harbour and beautiful views from the house. We were all fit enough to cope with the steps up to the house and to the outside seating area but not for the fainthearted. The decoration was tasteful with some lovely pictures on the walls and and some quirky touches. It is comfortable for a grouRead morep of 6 - 8 and we very much enjoyed our holiday there. Hide

We had a lovely stay. The one thing I would highlight to other potential guests is the amount of steps up to the house and the fact that the car park is a 5 min walk down the road.
