Delightful Apartment with Stunning Sea Views

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spacious, beautifully furnished and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. We were greeted every day with a wonderful, panoramic, ever-changing view of Torbay from the windows running the full length of the living room: like being on the bridge of an ocean liner! Faultless!

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.

Spectacular views, great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the area and we loved it. Good hosts who helped out as required. The apartment is up a double spiral staircase at the back of the main house, with its own entrance. The first thing that greets you is the 8 windows overlooking the bay from the kitchen / lounge area. We never grew tired of this and I enjoyed some watercolour painting, glass of wine in hand, while soaking up the atmosphere! The location of the property is about ten minutes walk downhill to Brixham Marina where there are plenty of places to eat & drink (recommend Simply Fish, Liberty's & Coco's), and access to the ferries for venturing further afield. We enjoyed day trips to Torquay to the Living Coast sanctuary, to Paignton for the Steam Railway to Greenway Halt where we walked up to Greenway House (National Trust), and to Dartmouth and Coleton Fishacre. If you turn right out of the property you can walk 20 minutes to spectacular Berry Head - highly recommend the Guardhouse Café! All in all a wonderful stay and we hope to visit again! Thank you!

Comfortable, spacious flat ideally situated with Terrific views.

  • 5 of 5

Only a 15 minute leisurely walk to Brixham harbour side makes this ideally situated for exploring the local area. About the same distance will take you to Berry head and saves on the car park charges. The flat has everything needed for a weeks stay and is clean and comfortable. The help with the luggage was much appreciated as the spiral staircase up to the flat could be a little challenging for some. We enjoyed the daily work out 😀 Would have no hesitation in recommending this holiday flat.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. You made a good point about the location of the flat, equally convenient for the town and harbour as well as for Berry Head. We always remind visitors about the spiral staircase. It is a challenge the first time one uses it, and thank you for mentioning that we are help with bags at the start and end of your holiday. The reward for the stairs, of course, is the amazing, panoramic view of the Bay every day during the holiday!
