Best Brixham cottage we've stayed in

  • 5 of 5

We're regular visitors to Brixham and usually stay in a different cottage or apartment each time. However, from now on we'll always be trying to book this one first - it's absolutely the best we've stayed in (and the others were lovely too!)

The views from the cottage's front windows are all "wow" and the pictures don't do justice of just how roomy it is. The living room and kitchen are superb - spacious, comfortable and well-equipped with everything you might need.

Upstairs, there's loads of storage and wardrobe space (and lots of hangers, very important!) My husband said the bed was one of the most comfortable he'd ever slept in. The bath is really lovely too.

All in all, an excellent cottage with great views and close to all that Brixham has to offer.

Disappointing experience due to lack of attention to the basics

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful location and fabulous views from each room overlooking harbour. Very nicely furnished - on the surface a very well presented cottage. Sadly uncomfortable beds resulted in poor nights' sleep and backache for the duration of the stay. Mattresses in both bedrooms need replacing. Was advised cottage has recently been refurbished therefore expected new, comfortable, bed. Tried both beds to try and get good night's sleep but unfortunately both uncomfortable; springs gone in middle bedroom mattress and top floor bedroom mattress like concrete. When first arrived found clump of black hair on edge of middle floor bathroom washbasin. Attention needs to be given to woodlice as they appeared in porch, kitchen and walls outside kitchen each evening. One morning found woodlice in half a banana left on worktop from previous day. Kitchen cupboards not as clean as would expect.This cottage has the potential to be outstanding, however the finer detail needs more attention. Don't feel comfortable giving negative comments, however we did feel very disappointed due to the points raised and hope these will be addressed. Happy to discuss if required.

Owner's Response: I'm disappointed to learn that everything was not perfect for your recent stay at Front Row. This is a new property to our site and you were one of the first guests to stay, so your feedback is very valuable in helping us to ensure that the comfort and condition is to a high standard for everyone. I've spoken to the owners regarding the beds, both of which were brand new when they purchased the cottage 2 years ago. I appreciate that mattress comfort is a subjective thing but I will personally check to make sure that they are either an acceptable standard or ask for replacements if not. I'm sorry you found them not to your satisfaction. Insects can be an intermittent problem in any property at any time. I have asked that appropriate treatment is used to eliminate this issue in the future. Once again thank you for bringing this to my attention. I've also contacted the cleaning team to let them know that the cupboard interiors were not up to scratch and for them to rectify this on the next clean and also mentioned about hair left in one of the bathrooms. Once again I'm sorry you experienced these issues and am sending you a voucher, which I hope will compensate you and as a thank you for letting me know about these problems so that they can be rectified for future guests.

Lovely cottage in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four nights with our two-year-old in April. The cottage is newly refurbished and very comfortable, with two big bedrooms and 2 new bathrooms. As stated in the description, the stairs to the top bedroom are very steep but that wasn't a problem for us or our toddler. The location for Brixham is extremely convenient, right above the harbour and there is parking at the bottom of the steps just over the road. Steve from Brixham Holidays was very helpful too when we needed some help with the Wi-Fi. If you're looking for a lovely two bed cottage in Brixham this place is ideal.
