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.

A Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

We booked the apartment for our honeymoon and had a fantastic week. The apartment itself was perfect, a good size with everything we could need. The location is great, with lovely views, a nice 10-15 min walk to the harbour & town centre, and great access to walks around the headland.

We spent one stormy week in that lovely apartement in Brixham.

The little town wasn't crowded and so it was a pleasure to walk along the habour with its small fishtrawlers, many yachts and a large number of very nice locations.

But the best was to come "home" after our daily walks. We have never been in a holidayflat with such a great view. From the large window you could see nearly the complete Torbay.

Livingroom and kitchen is on the seaside, bath- and sleepingroom on the back. We woke up in the sunshine. The days ended to sit in the sunset in our warm, clean, very charming flat with a glass of cider. The landlord is so friendly and helpful that we missed nothing, even not the Internet.

Our stay was really quite comfortable and nice.

Owner's Response: It is always fantastic to hear that our visitors have enjoyed the apartment and have had a great holiday, particularly so when the weather was so uncharacteristically inclement Many of our guests return for visits in the future or recommend us to their families and friends. We would be delighted to see you again. Hopefully you will see Torbay in sunshine next time. Best wishes.

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.
