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.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      The property is in excellent condition and in a very convenient location close to the harbour, the addition of the parking space made it that bit more convenient. A very cosy and comfortable cottage with character, and the mezzanine level offers a very nice outlook. Storage space is a bit limited, (I would imagine especially so if four people were staying), but was okay for the two of us. I would not hesitate to recommend this property, but I do have a couple of minor niggles. The outside noise to the front of the cottage is very distracting, and it will probably be worse in the summer season. I think secondary glazing would be a good idea. I am certainly not suggesting replacement double glazed windows to the front as this would affect the character, but discreet secondary units would help reduce the noise. The other issue is the mains shower on the top floor, it is designed to have a maximum temperature of 38 degrees C, which to my mind, is effectively a cold shower. Thankfully there is an additional electric shower in the second floor bathroom. As mentioned, these are relatively minor niggles and others may not even have an issue with them. Brixham is a great place to visit at anytime of the year, and this is an excellent choice for that visit.
