Stylishly updated traditional fishermen’s cottage located close to Brixham harbour, boasting three separate outdoor spaces, and sea views from many of the principal rooms.

One of the UK’s busiest fishing harbours, with a proud maritime history, Brixham makes a fantastic place for a holiday in South Devon. The harbour is the main focal point of the town, but in recent years it has also become known for its arts scene and there are several galleries and workshops which are lovely to spend an afternoon browsing. The restaurants, as visitors might expect, mostly specialise in the local seafood brought home by the fishermen, and there are plenty which are well-regarded, some offering stunning sea views. Beach-lovers won’t be disappointed, as the town boasts several beaches, from the main Breakwater Beach to the quiet and secluded St Mary’s Bay.

External steep steps lead to the front door of this three-storey property, they pass through the porch before coming to a narrow hallway.  The first bedroom, at the front of the house, is a light and airy double room with its own TV and a window seating looking out towards the harbour. Returning to the hallway, the bathroom, at the end of the corridor has a deep roll-top bath, a separate walk-in shower and WC.

Stairs lead to the first floor, which is where the main living accommodation is situated, comprising of a kitchen/diner which opens onto the lounge. This is a relaxing and welcoming space, dominated by the harbour views and the exposed stone walls. There are two sofas here, as well as a cosy wood burner, and TV. The kitchen/diner at the top of the stairs offers a dining table seating six, an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine.

 Further stairs lead to the second floor, where the second bedroom is located in the eaves of the house, and therefore has some reduced head-height. This charming room has lovely wooden floors, exposed stone walls, wonderful harbour views, a king-size bed, and, like the other bedroom, its own TV. The en-suite shower room has a large walk-in shower and WC.

Outside the cottage, there is an enclosed seating area with outdoor sofas to the front of the property, a great place to relax with drinks and watch the activity on the harbour. To the rear of the property there is steep steps leading to the two further terraced seating areas, making it easy to find a spot to enjoy the sunshine, whatever the time of day. The cottages also benefits from a parking space on the quayside.
