A lovely cottage with lots of charm, great views. Directly opposite steps that go down to the harbour. Pub next door had closed down when we were there, not sure what it's going to be, or if this will have an impact on noise levels
This was our second stay at the cottage. We liked it so much when stayed before, that we couldn’t wait to come back! The cottage has good location. It is right next to the harbour and right around the corner from the start of the town. It’s also at the bottom of a hill! An advantage when you are staying in Brixham! The actual cottage has been attractively modernised. But at the same time has retained some of it’s original features. It’s very clean and the kitchen is reasonably equipped. However there are a lot of stairs. As the bedrooms are on different floors. But each bedroom has a bathroom next door. Which is an advantage when you are staying with a friend like I was. There are also stairs up to a sun room which is accessed via the top bedroom. The stairs didn’t bother us. But they would be difficult for some people. The Sunroom is lovely. But it can get rather hot during the day. But it has a side view of the harbour and views over the town. There is also small TV in the room and it is lovely to sit there at night and watch it .The only disappointing aspect is there is no balcony to use so you can sit outside. The balcony shown in the picture of the cottage actually belongs to the cottage next door. But there is a small balcony off of the kitchen which has a side view of the harbour. But it does face an alley, which people use a cut through to the harbour. So you can hear their voices. But it was really wasn’t an issue. However there is one downside to the cottage. It is on a road that can get quite busy. Both bedrooms over look the road. I used some earplugs! So I wasn’t bothered by it. But my friend who was in the lower bedrooms did find it difficult to sleep at times. But as I said before it didn’t put us off booking the cottage for second time and we hope to come back next year!
