Just as described
This is a comfortable, spacious, and well presented cottage.It is one of the better ones that i have stayed in at various holiday lets in the UK and will more than likely be staying there again.The location is excellent overlooking the harbour and within a stones throw of the town and all it has to offer. The outside front veranda with the chairs and bench was a good place to sit and relax with a drink and watch the activities in the harbour.
The 2 large bedrooms are comfortable with plenty of wardrobe space and both have views of the harbour and out to sea. Both bathrooms are spacious and have good sized shower cubicles (the best showers I have had in a holiday let) with the top floor one having a bath as well.My only comment on them is that the first floor bathroom could do with a shaving mirror over the sink and perhaps mats down the sides of both beds as the floors are a hard floor and cold to step out of bed on.
All in all a property well worth staying in with an excellent location, and I would recommend it. In my opinion I think the owners do take more pride in there property than a lot I have seen.
Thank you for writing a review for Front Row Cottage. I am really pleased that you enjoyed your visit and feel it is somewhere you would like to stay again. I will pass on your thoughts about shaving mirror and mats by the beds to the owners for their consideration. We hope to welcome you back to Brixham in the future.
The best in Brixham
We have stayed in four different homes around the harbour in Brixham. The first three were all very nice but Front Row Cottage tops them all. We have stayed in the cottage twice now. The living room is nice and comfortable, kitchen has everything you need, bedrooms are very comfortable and bathrooms have been fitted to a high standard. The decor is nice and modern, but sympathetic to the age of the cottage.
The views from the windows are amazing; it's location is perfect.
Thank you for writing another review for Front Row Cottage, I know the owners will be so delighted that you have once again enjoyed your stay. We look forward to hopefully seeing you again soon.
Would highly recommend

Thank you for writing a review of your stay at Front Row Cottage. Glad to hear you enjoyed the wood burner that must have made the cottage very warm . I am delighted you enjoyed your visit to Brixham, hope to see you again in the future.
Best Brixham cottage we've stayed in
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.
Thank you for writing a review for Front Row Cottage and for staying with Brixham Holiday Homes again. I am delighted you were so taken with the cottage and felt so comfortable and at home there during your recent stay. I am pleased the location suited the things you wanted to do during your holiday and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future.
Disappointing experience due to lack of attention to the basics
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.
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
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.
Perched at the top of King Street in a prime location overlooking the harbour. 1 minute to harbour side. 2 minutes to restaurants, cafes bars and shops.
