The best in Brixham

5 of 5
We have stayed in four different homes around the harbour in Brixham. The first three were all very nice but Front Row Cottage tops them all. We have stayed in the cottage twice now. The living room is nice and comfortable, kitchen has everything you need, bedrooms are very comfortable and bathrooms have been fitted to a high standard. The decor is nice and modern, but sympathetic to the age of the cottage. The views from the windows are amazing; it's location is perfect.

We love Dartmouth - especially the harbour views. This property is perfectly located for us as a family. Kids, adults and grandparents all enjoyed their stay. Easy walking access to town for grandparents and crap fishing across the road for the kids. Plenty of space to spread out - warm and efficient central heating and good bathrooms. Could do with a few hooks to hang coats on the ground floor but other than that excellent.
