About rosalie reeder

My partner and I live in the midlands. We both love the south west and decided to look for a property to buy. We toured the area and decided on Brixham as we wanted somewhere to spend our winters. We spotted a run down property in need of a complete renovation and so we bought it and spent the next year lovingly restoring it.

Upper cottage used to be a merchant traders house and dates back to the 17th century.

Because Upper Cottage is our HolidayHome we have taken special care to provide good quality furnishings and utensells.You will find every thing there that you need to make your holiday a memorable one.

Upper Cottage will provide you with a lovely environment to spend quality time with your family.

We are retired now and love to spend time at the cottage.

rosalie reeder purchased this cottage in 2001

Why rosalie reeder chose Torbay

We bought our holiday home in brixham because we fell in love with the place.and as we intended to use the cottage in the winter time we wanted somewhere with a more gentle climate. Brixham is a little micro climate and can often be very mild during winter months. Its charming and busy harbour and the situation of the cottage being on the level of the town means you can nip in and out of the town and harbour on foot without the need for a car. its in an area of outstanding natural beauty with lots to see close by, lovely walks and fantastic pubs and resturants.

We chose Brixham to buy our holiday home because it is a thriving fishing comunity.not just a holiday resort. So many seaside towns die in the winter but although Brixham is quieter, it is still lively out of season.

What makes this cottage unique

We are close to the harbour and town with the manor pub being the nearest pub only 50 or so yrds away. numerous shops restaurants and bars within a 5 minute walk from the property. buses to all torbay resorts leave from the square across from the property which we enjoy for free with our bus pass!!We love to walk around the harbour and up on to Berry Head which is an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The beaches of fishcomb and churston cove are a 15 minute walk from the harbour and you can take your dog on these all year round.

Brixham welcomes dogs and many of the pubs and resturants allow them in.

The cottage is cosy for winter lets with full gas central heating (all you have to do is turn up the thermostat and on it comes) and a flame effect stove fire in the lounge fireplace.

Clean, comfortable and very cosy

  • 5 of 5

A great little property that was very clean, equipt with everything we needed and a stones throw from the harbour and shops. Seemed bigger than the pictures let on, and the terrace garden out back was a great sun trap. Lots to see and do in Brixham, as well as Paignton and Tourquay which are both a short drive away, and kept our almost 2 year old and dog entertained throughout. The parking space situated in the harbour made parking stress free. Definitely thinking of visiting again next year!

Fabulous,homely,cosy,well equipped cottage.A stones throw from harbour.Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

I was pleasantly surprised with this cottage, it's much larger than you would ever imagine from the outside appearance. Very quirky, comfortable and central to Brixham town and harbour. We had lovely walks with the dogs to the stunning coves along the coastline to Paignton. The English Riviera is one of the most beautiful coastlines in the UK. We will certainly return. Rosalie provided is with lots of information and is "super helpful." Brixham town is a buzzing thriving community with lovely pubs and restaurants. For us ... it's near perfect... Don't hesitate to visit, you won't regret it. Thanks Rosalie x

Lovely , homely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Upper cottage is a very lovely place to stay in , well equipped with everything you'd need , there was 6 of us who stayed a week and was plenty of room for us all. We parked the cars up one in the allocated space and one in the oxen cove pay n display which cost £35 for the week , had to get a ticket from the harbour master office, We traveled everywhere on the buses , the bus stops are literally opposite the cottage , the cottage is a short walk from the harbour with shop and cafes along the way , there's is stairs to the property but my elderly parents managed them adequately. Lovely balcony on the front to sit and watch the world go by , the only thing I fount was lots of seagull noise , more when the fishing boats came in but that can't be helped being in a fishing town , would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a place to stay in Brixham

Simply perfect

  • 5 of 5

Firstly about Brixham, I small fishing town on the South Devon coast. Busy with tourists during holidays but night times surprisingly quiet. Fabulous place that if you want to recharge or want a quiet get away is brilliant.

No the cottage. It is just like a home away from home, ok it's located above and art gallery but an extra few stairs didn't hurt, even my elderly parents didn't mind, and the dog positively loved it when he was allowed down them.

The accommodation is great, a little quirky, mainly in the last bedroom. My son likened his particular bed it to Harry Potters room under the stairs. Saying that he is 5'6 and managed perfectly. The rest of the beds were great (2 double bedded rooms and the twin, which my son shared with his sister, her bed was standard single). Kitchen and lounge were well appointed with all the bits, pieces and appliances one could ever need.

The two different outdoor areas were brilliant, although the front balcony looks out over the road, car park and far side of town, is was actually lovely to sit and watch the world go by, drink coffee and read the papers. The rear deck area is up some quite steep stairs which I suspect could be a little risky if wet or icy, but it too was a lovely area and very private. If the sun comes out you really need to be careful as the area is totally protected from wind.

Fabulous place. Would love to visit again

Cosy clean cottage

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cottage for my in-laws 58th wedding anniversary, we also had a two year old and this cottage suited all of us. It was very clean warm and cosy and had everything you would ever need, it really was home from home. It is in a fantastic location and we loved our weekend stay here. There was even a stair gate here which was ideal for us. This cottage is literally a very short stroll from the harbour and you have all the shops on your door stop. We will definitely be returning.
