We had a wonderful Christmas holiday at Gorse Cottage. Sadly the weather wasn't on our side but the cottage was lovely and cosy to stay in and play games or watch TV, and look at the amazing view when it was visible!!! The cottage is beautifully furnished and the beds are really comfortable. When the sun did appear we had a lovely walk up to Berry Read moreHead nature reserve, and also visited Paignton, Torquay and Paignton Zoo, not to mention a trip on the amazing Train of Lights. Hide

We really enjoyed our stay at Gorse Cottage. It was comfortable, warm and spotlessly clean. A lot of thought has gone into this accommodation and it's somewhere we hope to return to. Fabulous views from the sitting room window of the sea and bay area

A fantastic property with unbelievable views. The cottage is really well designed and equipped. You quickly feel as though it is a home from home. We were a bit sceptical about having a staycation but staying in Brixham and this lovely property has probably been a game changer. You really don't have to go abroad to have a fantastic holiday!

Absolutely amazing cottage, we were impressed with how clean and fresh it felt throughout. It's well looked after with all the little details thought about. Our favourite thing was of course the amazing view! We will be very sad to not be sat looking out of that window over our morning coffee's. Even with such a nice view the location is perfect, yRead morees it's up a slight hill but it's so worth it. Only a 5/10 min walk to the marina where you can then follow the path all the way around Brixam Hide

Splendidly equipped bright, well designed cottage with lovely views over the bay. Always something to see from the picture window!

This is a lovely modern converted cottage with superb views of the bay. The upside down layout makes the most of its location. The cottage is spotlessly clean and we really appreciated the lovely welcoming touches of scones, jam, cream, milk in the fridge and toiletries.

We had a small issue with the oven, this was sorted by the owners a soon as they were made aware ( genuinely nice people ) we have been home for just one day and miss the view over the water. This would be a nice place to live.
