Wonderful cottage. Spectacular view.

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated a birthday in this wonderful cottage. Our party ranged in age from 3 years old to 70 somethings.

It offered something for all of us.

A memorable stay in a beautiful location.

Having stayed here before during a heatwave, it was reassuring to find the house so cosy for a winter break.

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.

Excellent Accomodation.

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this was of an excellent standard other than the fact that the winter weather and winds did cause quite extreme drafts in the entirety of the cottage.

Didn't want to come home!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at Prospero's Rest in Brixham. The house was perfect for what we needed, beautifully decorated, cosy and clean and the location was perfect. 5 minute walk to the marina surrounded by lovely restaurants and pubs with one of the most beautiful views to wake up to. The house is located up a reasonably steep hill followed by steps and may have been a struggle for those with mobility issues however, we couldn't fault it. Already want to return and wouldn't even look for another house to stay in!

Prospero’s Rest

  • 4 of 5

We had such a lovely time in Brixham. The cottage is well positioned above the town with wonderful views of the sea, headland and harbour.. The south coast path is right on the door step making pretty bays an easy walk away wirh dolphins and seals to entertain you as you go.

The cottage interiors were stylish, comfortable and reflect the coastal surroundings. The addition of a Christmas tree and decorations was extremely thoughtful and much appreciated.

We’d definitely stay again in the future.
