Three night stay at Prospero's Rest for daughters 40th birthday.

5 of 5
We booked Prospero's Rest for three nights to celebrate our daughters 40th birthday. We were all extremely pleased with everything it had to offer. The cottage was very welcoming with all the facilities you would need for your stay. It was very tastefully decorated with lovely little lights, pictures and bits and pieces to make you feel at home. The cleanliness was noticeable throughout and the beds were made with lovely crisp, white bedding. Every room has uninterrupted views of the sea, harbour, boats and coastline, absolutely magic. We were all fighting to sit in the lovely window seat to take it all in. Brixham town is just a few minutes walk away where you can enjoy the many restaurants, bars and shopping centre. It was a delight to be able to spend time just strolling along and taking in all the views. We will most definitely return to this lovely holiday property. The only negative is that the access to the property is up several stone steps so I could be difficult for the less able person.
