  • Many of the amenities and cottages in Brixham are accessed via steps some of which can be steep.
  • There are many small winding streets that are not suitable for cars, therefore many properties in Brixham do not have private parking. However, alternative parking is available in local carparks.

A well presented comfortable cottage, very clean and well equipped. Lovely view over the harbour from the bedroom. There is no vehicular access. Be aware that all baggage has to be carried up a steep hill and flight of steps from car park at harbour level.

Nice cottage in a good location right near the town however we thought not enough emphasis was put on the very steep passage leading to then steep steps to the cottage .We had to have help with our luggage. For us and anyone around our age (76-78) its not recommended

What a lovely holiday cottage, beautiful harbour views and only about 50-60 metres up from the main shopping area. My wife and I found it very peaceful. The rest we both needed.

The cottage was perfect for the 2 of us. It had all the amenities we needed. The cottage was cosy and compact....renovated to a high standard. The bedroom had a wonderful view facing the harbour. We knew beforehand that it would be hilly to access and indeed that was very true.

The cottage was small but absolutely delightful and the bonus of an outside garden given the glorious weather we had was fantastic.
