On arrival we were greeted by the owner who was pleasant and showed us everything but there was a really bad smell of damp when we...

Great comfortable house to accommodate all the family so everyone has their own ensuite bedroom. The communal rooms are large enough for everyone to cook/dine together & the basement is a real bonus. The kitchen has everything you need & more. Sheets/towels were good quality. Perfect location for all Brixham has to offer with some great views over the bay....

About the neighbourhood
Nestling in the southernmost curve of Torbay is the historic fishing port of Brixham where a large fishing fleet works out of the picturesque harbour.
Quaint houses in narrow streets and steep steps up from the harbour to give Brixham a sense of agelessness.
The port has a wealth of shops from old fashioned linen shop, yacht chandlers, coffee shops and great seafood restaurants.
The Berry Head Country Park, The Napoleonic Fortress and the Coastal Park are a must for lovers of history and nature.
Getting around
There's lots of places to walk. From Brixham to Torquay and Dartmouth there are both a very good Bus and Ferry service. Within Brixham there is a convenient and reasonably priced Taxi service.
