Had a lovely stay at this cottage - very comfortable!! Close enough to the centre of the Village to walk but far enough away to be quiet. Enjoyed breakfast overlooking the bay!

Lovely cottage with gorgeous views. We had a very comfortable stay and found the location excellent. Although there is no parking on site, we had no problem finding a space on Berry Head Road each day (2 mins walk) and could easily pull in outside the property when we needed to load/unload.

Firstly, this is a beautiful quirky upside down cottage. It's impeccably maintained, and fully equiped with everything you'll need. Secondly you must prepare yourselves for hours staring at the stunning view. We loved sitting in the lounge area watching the variety of boats on the harbour. In warm weather you can also do this from the patio area ouRead moretside the downstairs bedroom. Thirdly, the owners are the most pleasant and helpful people you could hope to encounter. You won't regret staying here. Hide

Great location with great views of the bay. It is quite compact, the second bedroom is very small. The cottage contains all required facilities is very clean. Within easy walking distance of facilities. Parking was easy to find albeit an inconvenience to park away from the cottage. We loved the vibe of the area and town. Very nice stay.

A wonderful stay at a cottage which pretty much has everything you would need, together with a fabulous sea view to enjoy whilst eating breakfast, dinner and tea ! Brixham is a lovely relaxed place, and the nearby walk to Berry Head Nature reserve is so picturesque. The cafe there is well worth a couple of visits. We would love to return.
