150 YEAR OLD FISHERMAN'S COTTAGE, 2 BALCONIES WITH HARBOUR VIEWS

Nestling in one of Britain's most beautiful harbours and situated at the southernmost end of Torbay, this pretty fisherman's cottage offers a unique holiday experience. There are panoramic views of the harbour and marina from every floor and a large balcony where you can sit back and relax overlooking the bustling old fish quay.

You will be a stone's throw away from the harbour where there are a multitude of boats offering pleasure or fishing trips to visitors, an array of colourful cottages and numerous seafood restaurants, cafes, shops and pubs. The English Riviera offers some of the best beaches in the country with sheltered bays, coves and rock pools and is the perfect arena to watch or partake in any number of water sports including scuba diving and sailing. You will also be within a short drive to Torquay where you'll find the palm-lined promenade, seafront gardens, a lively harbour and an international marina. There are many attractions to suit all tastes including Brixham Heritage Museum, Kents Cavern, Babbacombe Model Village, Kingswear/Dartmouth (10 minutes drive) and much more.

Set on 4 floors and entered on the second floor, the accommodation offers TWO bedrooms: large master on the third floor with a vanity basin, double bed, TV and fabulous views of the harbour and marina. 1 twin room with TV on the top floor and approached via winding stairs (children beware), with low wooden beams and balcony with spectacular views to the breakwater, lifeboat station and the inner and outer harbours.

A lovely little cottage on 4 floors, 2 balconies overlooking the harbour. there is no parking, but we found a street nearby with no restrictions, didn't use the car all week as everything is in walking distance. You can take the ferry to Torquay and Dartmouth, so it turned into a very relaxing drunken week ! One word of warning the stairs are very Read moresteep and winding, so not suitable for anyone who is a little infirm. Also if you can't get up hills find another cottage. We loved it ! Hide

Don't follow sat nav!! We loved our holiday, the cottage was perfect, the views were stunning and we had 2 sulky children when we had to leave. Looking out of the window in the morning with a cup of tea and watching the boats was pure bliss. Perfect location, perfect noise of seagulls first thing - we'd definitely stay here again, it took me back tRead moreo my childhood holidays visiting Brixham with my parents and now i've been able to share it with my husband and our children.

Brilliant location. Warm. Clean. Superb

Reviewed by David, 26th September 2015

This is a lovely cottage in a fabulous location. It requires some climbing of awkward stairs between the four floors, and the surrounding roads and steps are quite steep, but if this isn't a problem then the view from all floors will make all worthwhile.
