Trade Winds is situated overlooking Brixham harbour, marina and has fantastic views over Torbay. Brixham is a cosy coastal town with beautiful views and rambling countryside. It's one of the busiest fishing ports in the country and you can watch trawlers deliver their catches all through the day and night.
There is plenty to do to keep young and old happy - ferry trips, fishing, crabbing, swimming in the famous shoal stone outdoor salt water pool or just walk up to the famous Berry head Reserve with its TWO Napolonic forts and the tallest and shortest lighthouse in the country overlooking 500 square miles of sea and one of the most panoramic views of the whole of Lyme Bay.
There is a great range of Bars, Bistros, restaurants, cafes and pubs all within a short distance and Trade Winds is situated just a 2 minute stroll from many of these facilities.
There are many local festivals not to be missed - the Pirate Festival on the first weekend in May with over a 1000 pirates, Brixfest (Brixham Heritage Festival) at the end of May with many attractions for all ages, the Trawler Race in June which all the trawler crews celebrate, Brixham Steam Rally in August and finally Fishstock in September when the fish market plays host to celebrate everything about fish and fishing.
Torbay has been and continues to be very popular with many generations due to its warm climate and award winning beaches and fantastic walks.
The rich history of the Bay where the Spanish armada was first sighted and attacked and where William of Orange landed in 1688 provides a wealth of history to explore.
Within easy reach is the medieval village of Cockington with its famous forge and Manor, Dartmouth with it's galleries and naval college and many quite coves and beaches.
The owners run a lovely old 17th century Guest House just opposite this property called Sampford Guest House and we always welcome any visitors and help to maximise your holiday plans
