Once you arrive, you don't have to go far, as the seaside town offers an array of shops, cafes and restaurants within easy reach of the sea front.

We loved our entire week away. The cottage was fabulous and had everything we would need to make our week away perfect. The hot tub was just what we needed. Everything was clean and the bed was sooooo comfortable. I would recommend Brixham and Dartmouth to visit. Although if you want a bit of 1950s retro Paignton Pier was also worth a visit. . We aRead morere booked to go back there next year in the same week already and we have only been back 24 hours. The owners were helpful and on site if needed. Hide

Nice property, directly next door to owners (good or bad), nice hot tub and view. There were some nice touches but I think lacked the basics... like salt and pepper in the salt and pepper shakers. Dont give me an empty shaker its like teasing me!
