The flat was very comfortable and clean. Being so near to the marina not only provided stunning views but lovely walks. Bus stops were near if required with buses every hour. Eating places were plenty with a good carvery not too far away. As the property was up on a hill for those less able it could be hard going walking back from the marina and the entrance to the actual building is quite steep. Our hosts were very pleasant and nothing was too much trouble for them, and even offered to pick us up from the bottom of the hill if we couldn't make it back! There were more than enough shops for a small town to browse through and you had a fair selection of pubs. At the marina you could get boat trips to Paignton, Dartmouth and Torquay at reasonable costs with information of local history provided by the captains on route. All in all we had a good week in Brixham and the apartment couldn't have been in a better position for enjoing the views. Would recommend and may go again.

The only 2 issues were - main bathroom toilet flush not working properly, and some of the kitchen items on the lower shelves were mouldy, I think this is just due to the climate, but perhaps a biannual spring clean down there would be a good idea. It didn't worry us as we didn't cook much.

As you can see from the pictures the views are spectacular, my husband could take pictures of the sunrise from his pillow in bed every morning , we slept with the curtains open as the sunrise was unmissable! We barely went out as there was no need to , if you want a quiet peaceful relaxing holiday then this is the place for you, when the sun is out you would swear you were on the Med! No passing traffic apart from yachts passing by , just birds singing heaven! Weather was hit and miss but still enjoyed the views in the rain! Churston cove is beautiful , but quite steep or steps to both coves for prams and anyone with physical issues. Seals and dolphins in the cove, so not great for fishing, but great for watching. The apartment is well furnished , if I am being picky just a few tiny minor issues. The bedrooms are small which have already been mentioned and you cant fully open one wardrobe door because of the bed but hey they are just there to sleep in not to live in. The wardrobe space is also the only storage in the apartment for hoovers, ironing boards, drawers, clothes airers etc and the full length mirrors on the wardrobes are unable to be used due to the position of furniture, but again very minor issues. I personally found the double bed uncomfortable but managed by using the spare quilt as a mattress topper, but my husband found it comfortable so that is just down to personal choice. Outside areas/ lights were full of cobwebs which again me being picky should have been dusted down /swept before arrival. Well equipped. There are towels, bars of soap, hairdryer, ironing board and iron, dishwasher , washer dryer, clothes airers, hoover, kiddie toilet step, make up / shaving mirrors, blu ray player in lounge and tv and player in back bedroom, radio with ipod dock, all kitchen utensils you could wish for including chopsticks, & also monopoly , trivial pursuit games, binoculars and fishing rods. The pool is heated , but we were disappointed a couple of times as it was closed when it should have been open, it is not manned, but little ones cant reach the lock to open the door to it . A caravan park is just across the road and the shop ( couple of shelves with staples) and bar is open to non residents if you wish to use them . Entertainment there some nights, but we didnt hear any noise with being furthest away from the park. Great customer service from Steve of Brixham holidays, who was always happy to help. All in all the best British ( maybe abroad too) holiday we have ever had and we will definitely be returning asap 10 /10!
