Surpassed expectations.

  • 5 of 5

An immaculately presented apartment, with stunning views over the bay. Very helpful host. We didn't need the car at all, we went everywhere by foot or boat / ferry.

PERFECT HOLIDAY JULY 2018

  • 5 of 5

You sort of expect the "Fabulous panoramic views" description to be a bit exaggerated or possibly true of the bit you could see between the buildings in front of you but here not so. On entering the apartment we gasped at the sensational sight out of the huge picture windows high above all before us.. Superb!

Added to the view, the apartment was at least all we'd hoped - well equipped and rather roomier than we had expected.

The welcome was warm, the owner very friendly but never intrusive.

We'd definitely go back and you can't really say more than that.

Nice litte bolt hole, perfect base, good standard

  • 5 of 5

Ideal for couples looking for a quiet base to explore the southern Devon area. Beautiful views (weather dependant at this time of year!) Flat has everything you need to live the self catering break but is in 5 min walking distance from 2 brilliant eateries and 15 min of the main town.

Good shower, great bed, great heating which we needed at the end of October although the flat actually keeps quite cozy considering.

Having read the visitors book we see there are lots of people who go back many times and I understand why.

A little tired decor wise but as said by the owners in response to some Negative reviews, at the end of the season that’s to be expected, and by no means is it to an unacceptable standard.

Overall a lovely flat in a lovely town.

Lovely flat, amazing views, clean, cosy, perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this flat, our first trip to Brixham has been very relaxing & waking up each morning to such splendid views was amazing. Kevin was a great host, we felt very welcome. The position was very convenient & a good base to travel around Devon. We would recommend this to anyone. Found a great place for breakfast just down a path by the sea, Shoals by the Lido, only found it day before we left, otherwise we would have eaten many times at night too!

Nice apartment with wonderful views

  • 4 of 5

In a lovely location. Situated at quieter end of Brixham. Short walk up to Berry head and 5mins away from excellent sea food restaurant. Apartment perhaps a little dated with steep steps to access the property. However clean and well equipped. Would certainly use again. Well worth the money. Had a great stay.

Owner's Response: Hi, thank you for your review. We are pleased you had a good time. Shoals, the seafood restaurant, is one of my favourites and is well worth a visit. We have been letting out the apartment for 8 years I think, so I agree that it is looking a little dated. We will be up dating some of the furniture and decor for next season. Thank you also for mentioning the steep, spiral stairs. We highlight them in the property details so that our visitors are not taken by surprise. However there is always that fantastic view to look forward to when you get to the top! Hopefully we will see you again next year. Kind regards.

The Rockberry Apartment is on the South West Coastal footpath. It is within a few minutes walking distance from the Marina and harbour, Breakwater beach, Ladybird Cove, the Seawater Swimming pool, Shoalstone Point and Berry Head Country Park (a site of Special Scientific Interest). It is idealy situated for people wishing to enjoy the local coastline and sea.

Brixham an historic town with a busy fishing industry. It has a picturesque old harbour which, not surprisingly, is overlooked by a number of good fish restaurants. During the summer period passenger boats can be taken to Torquay, Dartmouth and the River Dart. The town also has a heritage fleet of sailling trawlers. 'The Vigillance' is available for short sailling trips around the Bay. The town is located on the southern side of Torbay within the stunning South Devon coastline.

Brixham is also well placed to explore the interior of South Devon.
