It was clean and tidy when we arrived and the views are absolutely amazing. We stayed with our little girl who is 2 and she loved sitting in the window seat to watch the boats each morning. We had a slight issue with the parking permit as we were given one for august but our stay was in September which meant we revived two parkin fines in the week. We contacted Brixham holiday homes and they dealt with this promptly for us and paid the fines without any issues . Cannot recommend this cottage enough, we had the most relaxing stay and Brixham is beautiful. Will definitely be back!
