Traditional fishermen’s cottage, situated close to Brixham town centre, with two separate outside spaces: a courtyard and raised sun terrace.

This property is located close to Brixham town centre, just a few minutes’ walk from the town’s busy harbour with its heritage fishing fleet, and tour boats. The whole region is known for the clear blue water and warm seas at the beaches, and there several beaches within easy reach of the town centre, including Shoalstone Beach which has the added bonus of a tidal pool, and quiet Fishcombe Cove. The coastal walks around the edges of the town are absolutely stunning, whether you fancy walking out to the lighthouse at Berryhead National Nature Reserve, or enjoying the picturesque six-mile hike to the neighbouring town of Paignton.

A number of external steps lead to the front door of this former-fishermen’s cottage, which opens directly into the cosy lounge, with its warming wood-burner , comfortable seating, and TV. Moving towards the rear of the property, past the stairs, guests come to the kitchen/diner, where there is a dining table seating four, an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine. A door from the kitchen area leads to the rear courtyard and steep steps to the elevated sun terrace. Wooden stairs lead to the first floor where there is an attractive double room which has a double bed, and built-in wardrobe. The bathroom is also on this floor, and offers the best of both worlds, with a corner bath, separate shower cubicle, and WC. Steep winding cottage-style stairs (unsuitable for children under five) lead to the second-floor bedroom, a charming twin room offering views across the town’s roof tops. Guests should be aware that this bedroom is in the eaves of the house and, therefore is subject to a reduced head-height.

Outside, the property benefits from a small enclosed courtyard garden and steep steps which lead to the elevated sun terrace, this is set to shingle and has a table and bench seating, a quiet space overlooking the town with garden furniture, making an excellent space to enjoy drinks in the sun. Guests should be aware that this is a high-level terrace and steep stairs lead to it, therefore it is not suitable for under-fives.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
