About Wendy Gibbs

Hi. Thank you for taking an interest in Autumn Rose.

My name is Abigail Gibbs. I am twenty years old and I am currently a finalist reading English Language and Literature at Oxford University. I spend some of my vacations writing here, its where I can enjoy the peace and quiet and solitude required to pen that next chapter. My first book The Dark Heroine was published in 2012 by Harper Collins after being spotted on an internet writing site, where I already had a fan base emerging. When time permitted between studies, I completed my second book in the series, aptly named 'Autumn Rose'. which was launched in January 2014. I hope to continue my writing career following my graduation later this year.

Year property purchased: 2013

Why Wendy Gibbs chose Torbay

Sea Whisper has been used by my extended family for some 10 years. Cousins, Aunts and Uncles would always love to come and stay here in Brixham. Torquay was voted by the public as the best UK resort on the website Trip Advisor, therefore it is not surprising the bungalow was always a popular destination. It is well equipped for self catering and has a secure garden ideal for young children.

What makes this bungalow unique

I am very fortunate to have been brought up here in Brixham with my two brothers, we always enjoyed sailing off the breakwater and rowing on the river at Dartmouth.

My personal recommendations for places to visit would be Paignton Zoo Dartmoor with of course a devon cream tea

Babbacombe model village and I especially enjoyed crabbing at Stoke Gabriel. I hope you too can enjoy all that this beautiful area has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a brilliant stay in this lovely bungalow. Very well equipped, clean and homely. Near enough to all the local attractions. Hope to be back next year.

PERFECT again!! Our second stay at Sea Whisper...

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting Brixham for more 20 years and have always struggled to find suitable dog friendly accommodation. The bungalow is well equipped, clean and homely with an enclosed private rear garden ideal for dogs and small children. Sea Whisper has amazing sea views, It was everything we had hoped for and much more.

Over 100 fishing boats land and sell their catch in Brixham at the local fish market on the quayside which is just over a mile away. There is a regular bus service into Brixham available from the property.

The lovely family beaches of Broadsands and Goodrington are roughly 2 miles away great for sandcastles or rockpooling. For those keen on walking or seeking a quiet cove an amble through Churston woods leads to some pretty beaches all within a mile or two.

Travel:

Nearest airport is Exeter some 28 miles away. Paignton train station is 5 miles where connections can be taken to the mainline stations enabling visitors to access Plymouth and Exeter.

Sea Whisper is on a bus route therefore a car would not be essential, however to appreciate all the area has to offer a car would be recommended. Car hire is available in Paignton

Distances:

The towns of Torbay including Torquay, Paignton and Brixham are all within a 7 mile radius.

Brixham has a viewing platform allowing visitors a unique opportunity to watch the comings and goings of the fleet. Around the quay there are numerous restaurants serving the days catch, as well as pubs and shops, creating a wonderful vibrant atmosphere in the classic English fishing port.

The nearest villages are Churston and Galmpton both offering lovely characterful pubs which serve good food.

Further Details:

Brixham is a quaint fishing town and with colourful houses lining the harbour. . While fishing is Brixham's main industry, it is also able to provide plenty for the tourist , with plenty of food shops such as the Brixham Deli and the West country Deli, cafés such as Millie & Me, and bar's such as the Old Market House on the harbour. The harbour has a great continental feel, especially in the summer, when you can sit outside and enjoy fish which has been caught that very morning.

The Golden Hind replica sits in the inner harbour and combined with the 500 berth marina and Breakwater, make Brixham a boat lovers paradise. You can learn about the town's maritime history in the Heritage museum. Boat trips and fishing trips leave the harbour daily. Brixham has one of the largest working fishing ports in the country, adding to the nautical activity.

For lovers of the steam era there is a heritage steam railway running form Paignton to Dartmouth.

Brixfest (Brixham Heritage Festival) is at the end of May with many attractions including fireworks, Brixham Steam Rally in August and finally Fishstock held in early September is a one day festival to celebrate food and music and everything about fish and fishing.
