The cottage was perfect break away- it provides a real cosy feel, it felt like a home from home. The cottage itself is done to a very high standard even to the smallest details. Also perfect location on the harbour- Great communication from the host Colin! Would definitely return!

Small, Cosy cottage big enough for two. Well located, close to the harbour, but as with all Devon coastal cottages, an uphill walk back to the cottage after going downtown. Comfortable bed. Brixham is a busy lively harbour with lots of activity, good food and shops. Good place for a holiday.

Lovely little cottage, thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Great communication with the owner prior to arrival. We did struggle to park near the cottage, would advise getting a weekly pass down by the harbour(only a five minute walk).

The cottage is very comfortable with a pub nearby and excellent views over the bay from the nearby park. There is a very frequent bus service to Paignton and /torquay. Perhaps you might stress how hilly Brixham is. This was not a problem for us but would be awkward for anybody with restricted mobility.

The sweetest little cottage in a great location. It's an up and down walk to the town but then, so is every other house in the area. Everything we needed was in the cottage and it was tastefully decorated throughout. Perfect.

The cottage is ideally situated close to the harbour and main streets, however the walk back is all uphill and could be a task for older people. Having said all that we really enjoyed our stay.
