Brixham is a charming fishing village in South Devon. Built on hills surrounding the harbour, private Brixham holiday cottages make the idea spot in which to enjoy a romantic weekend. The colourful Brixham holiday cottages almost all look out over the trawler filled harbour to the vast blue sea beyond. This is one of England's busiest fishing ports, and there is nowhere better to sample the freshest fish landed on our shores.
A private Brixham holiday cottage is a magnificent place to simply unwind, whether you would like to sample the best of British seafood in the many cafes and restaurants or discover the many tales of pirates and smugglers that Brixham, Devon is famous for. The streets are filled with charming little shops, traditional pubs and cafes to investigate, but one of the finest ways to explore is by heading down to the seafront and taking one of the boat trips which leave the town daily during the summer months.
The replica of the Golden Hind, Sir Francis Drake's famous ship sits in the harbour alongside the working trawlers, and always draws a crowd. You cannot miss the Golden Hind from Brixham holiday accommodation, and you certainly wouldn't wish to.
Walkers are in the perfect spot when staying in a private Brixham holiday cottage, as the town is set on one of the most beautiful stretches of coastal path in the whole of England. The walking is wonderful from Brixham holiday accommodation, especially if you make the climb up past Breakwater Beach and up the hill to the Berry Head Nature Reserve.
Torquay, or the "Queen of the Riviera" as it is affectionately known, lies down the coast, and is well worth exploring from Brixham holiday accommodation.
