Attractive two-bedroomed cottage enjoying a central yet quiet location in the English Riviera town of Brixham, situated just a few metres from the town’s bustling harbour.
Nestled in a traffic-free zone in the harbour town of Brixham, three-storey Giffin Cottage offers a quiet retreat to the coast for holidaymakers that seek the convenience of plenty of attractions, shops and restaurants. Thoughtfully styled with beautiful period features, this property has lots of character that makes staying here a dream. Wake up to the smell of tea and toast, and head down to the breakfast bar in the stunning kitchen/diner that was hand-built from reclaimed wood.
Whether you’re curled up in front of the wood burner or enjoying the superb views from the balconette in the second-floor double bedroom, you’ll feel comfortable and relaxed here. The interiors are light and bright with exposed beams and rustic features dotted throughout, ensuring that the property doesn’t lose touch with its traditional roots. Both bedrooms are decorated to a high standard in classy farmhouse-chic style, but you may have to fight with your other guests over who gets the room with the harbour views. If the weather is nice, make use of the enclosed seating area and enjoy a couple of al fresco cocktails as the sun sets.
Walk just 114 metres to the harbour to take a wildlife cruise around some of Torbay’s spectacular coastline, where you may spot seals, herons, or even a pod of dolphins. If you’d rather admire the sea from the beach, quiet St. Mary’s Bay is 2 miles from the centre, or Breakwater (0.7 miles) is popular with scuba divers. Find out about Brixham’s rich history at the Brixham Heritage Museum (650 metres), or climb aboard the replica of the Golden Hind (90 metres) and get stuck into its hands-on exhibits.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
