Traditional fishermen’s cottage, with stunning sea views, enjoying a fantastic position overlooking the harbour in the town of Brixham, on the beautiful English Riviera.

This property is located close to the harbour in Brixham, a lovely seaside town situated on Torbay. Three towns are clustered around the bay: Torquay, Paignton, and Brixham itself, which is situated on the western side. The other towns are both less than a thirty-minute drive from Brixham, but there is also a ferry that runs across the bay to Torquay which makes a daytrip to the resort town even more special. Brixham is a lovely town with a thriving harbour, a good range of shops and restaurants, several beaches, and even an interesting replica of the Golden Hind which is fully-accessible to visitors and offers a glimpse at life on the Tudor ship that circumnavigated the world. 

On arrival, guests are welcome into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner which is on the ground-floor and is a clear example of the tasteful shabby-chic style which gives the cottage a lovely homely feel. The lounge area, at the front of the room, offers views of the bay, which can be enjoyed from the comfortable sofas, or you can sit back and enjoy the TV and DVD player with selection of films and family games. The wood burner here gives the room a lovely cosy feel, even in the coldest months. The dining area, with its hand-painted furniture, sits between the lounge and the kitchen area, which is accessed via one step up, and is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine. Wooden stairs lead to the first floor, where the master bedroom suite is located. This spacious room has a wonderful view of the bay, and benefits from an en-suite shower and WC. The main bathroom is also on this floor, and has a sumptuous roll-top bath with handheld shower, and WC. The remaining two bedrooms can be found on the second floor: a cosy single room and a good-sized twin, again with fabulous sea views.

This cottage is beautiful and in the perfect location. Lots of close by shops and restaurants to visit if you wish to stay in Brixham and if not then there are plenty of places close by to also visit. The cottage is wonderful and has everything you need. Very comfy beds and beautiful views. Lots of steps to the cottage so not for the faint hearted,Read more but once you get there its worth it. Only one downside, no where to sit outside to enjoy views even more. Hide

We spent Christmas at the cottage with our 2 boys of 9 and 6. We all thought the cottage was beautiful, the views from every window were stunning looking out over the harbour and our stay was delightful. We walked to Bery Head along the coastal path to the cafe. We also walked the other way to the coves and swam on Christmas Day. We spotted seals sRead morewimming along the cliffs. Brigham is charming. Plenty of local shops to mooch in. Lots of steps, but our boys enjoyed racing up and down them. Hide

We had a great short break in November in Guillimot Cottage in Brixham - the views were breathtaking. It was peaceful and quiet and we had everything we needed - including a log burner and a beautifully appointed Fisherman's cottage. Thank you!
