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 accommodation was very clean and well maintained. It's perfect for dogs with open fields, accessed from the decking area. The hot tub is a perfect way to relax and enjoy the countryside view. The Blagdon Inn is just a short walk and the food is excellent worth a visit or two. Would definitely recommend Mick and Sharon's lodge to family and friends.

From the time we arrived in the village until the time we left it was great. We arrived early and stopped at the local, The Manor Inn. The service was great, locals very friendly and later in the week we found out how good the food was, quiz night is a giggle with the locals, oh and the steak night is excellent value at £25 for two meals including a bottle of wine. We left the pub and then followed the instruction to the cottage, excellent instructions. As soon as we parked up and went through the back gate it felt like home. We found the key safe (this I feel could be better located. Very low down and in the dark was a nightmare. Inside was lovely and clean and everything was as described in the brochure, superb size double beds. Three toilets all very clean. Kitchen had every thing you could need for the holiday. Nice comfy living room with freeview TV, DVD player and Wi-Fi was perfect. The conservatory was a lovely area to just sit and chill after a day out and was very warm in the mornings. We chose to sleep in the bedroom with the en suit and I had some of the best sleeps I have had for a long time. The outside space was lovely and not really got much to complain about but if I was to be picky I would have liked the grass to have been cut before we arrived not during our stay. Another small point lighting by the back gate never worked. How ever these minor faults were made up by the wild life in the back garden. We could sit out the back by the patio table having a morning coffee and the biggest pigeons you could wish to see would come and sit right beside you. We had two resident Moorhens in the back garden, a huge cock pheasant and the normal day to day birds we all see, it was lovely. My dog just wondered about and the pigeons did the same no fear from the birds. Garden is 100% safe for children and dogs. Three dogs beds are available for pets to use, various sizes. The accommodation is ideally situated as it is just a 8 minute drive from Brixham Town centre, 4 minutes walk from the village shop, 6 minutes from the local pub and 15 minutes from local supermarkets. Did we have a good holiday? you bet we did will we go back? silly question. You can count on it. Great service all round Many thanks Brinley and Christine Meredith South Wales
