Comfortable, spacious flat ideally situated with Terrific views.

  • 5 of 5

Only a 15 minute leisurely walk to Brixham harbour side makes this ideally situated for exploring the local area. About the same distance will take you to Berry head and saves on the car park charges. The flat has everything needed for a weeks stay and is clean and comfortable. The help with the luggage was much appreciated as the spiral staircase up to the flat could be a little challenging for some. We enjoyed the daily work out 😀 Would have no hesitation in recommending this holiday flat.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. You made a good point about the location of the flat, equally convenient for the town and harbour as well as for Berry Head. We always remind visitors about the spiral staircase. It is a challenge the first time one uses it, and thank you for mentioning that we are help with bags at the start and end of your holiday. The reward for the stairs, of course, is the amazing, panoramic view of the Bay every day during the holiday!

Perfect Location with great bay views

  • 5 of 5

We've had a great weeks stay at this apartment. Directly opposite path to the free seawater pool and access to Shoals restaurant. Lovely walk down to the Quay to find plenty of shops, bars & cafes (we couldn't resist a cider at the Prince William both on the way to Town or back up!). We ate at several Brixham bars & cafes and never had a bad meal (even the Wetherspoons was ok and very cheap - find it at the end of Fore St). Ferry to Torquay a bargain at £3 return & a nice 30min trip. Couldn't fault the apartment, very comfy bed, great Kitchen, great shower, very clean & spacious. Parked up in the provided space & never used the car at all. Just Perfect.

Simply Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised with how much space we had in the apartment, it was bigger than it looked on the internet. Very clean and well decorated, the comfortable bed was appreciated as we have stayed in holiday accommodations where cuts have been made with regards to the quality of the mattress.

The most outstanding feature of this apartment is the view, absolutely breath taking, I even saw a seal swimming around the rocks from the view from the kitchen and cooking has never been such a pleasure.

Shops, restaurants, pubs are all within a short walk, Beamers and the Shoal café being our favourites.

The owners made us feel very welcome, we most defiantly will return.

Great apartment with a view

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to spend some time. There is a large bedroom and bathroom at the back of the building and a good-sized kitchen/living area at the front that features a wide, unobstructed view over Torbay. You would be hard pressed to find anything better at twice the price.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described and the layout was excellent and the location of the property overlooking the harbour was fantastic. The property was very clean and very well maintained. We met Kevan on Sunday evening and he was very polite and he told us to ring him if there were any problem which to me is good customer service. If anybody is thinking of taking a holiday in Devon I definitely recommend Kevan & Gemma's property. There was so much to do in Brixham that you can manage without a car. There are plenty of places to eat and visit so you will never get bored. We liked the Vigilance pub and The Market House pub which we used every day. There is nothing in Brixham to dislike as the Harbour and the views are fantastic.

Thank you Kevan & Gemma for making our stay a holiday to remember.

The Rockberry Apartment is on the South West Coastal footpath. It is within a few minutes walking distance from the Marina and harbour, Breakwater beach, Ladybird Cove, the Seawater Swimming pool, Shoalstone Point and Berry Head Country Park (a site of Special Scientific Interest). It is idealy situated for people wishing to enjoy the local coastline and sea.

Brixham an historic town with a busy fishing industry. It has a picturesque old harbour which, not surprisingly, is overlooked by a number of good fish restaurants. During the summer period passenger boats can be taken to Torquay, Dartmouth and the River Dart. The town also has a heritage fleet of sailling trawlers. 'The Vigillance' is available for short sailling trips around the Bay. The town is located on the southern side of Torbay within the stunning South Devon coastline.

Brixham is also well placed to explore the interior of South Devon.
