Great Grockle!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a relaxing week at Grockle Nook, enjoying the sights and walks about Brixham and the exceptional hospitality of our hostess, Sharon. The apartment came "fully loaded" with plenty of towels, blankets, pillows, toiletries and a welcome basket filled with wine, cookies, fruit and other goodies that we enjoyed throughout the week. Located within walking distance to pubs, the downtown and waterfront areas, Grockle Nook was a very good choice for us. Keep in mind there are several steps in the apartment, but all in all, we completely enjoyed our stay at this remarkable rental apartment.

A great place to return to after a days exploring

  • 5 of 5

After a long journey from West Yorkshire we were given the warmest welcome by Sharon the owner of Grockle Nook. We immediately felt comfortable and the welcome pack Sharon provided on arrival was a lovely bonus. The apartment has everything you need for a comfortable stay. If you are likely to need it then Sharon has thought of it. It was the most well equipped holiday rental we have ever booked. You are just a 10 minute stroll from Brixham town center and all it has to offer. Great food can be found at the New Quay Inn in the town centre and you can get a good carvery on a Sunday at The Prince William near the Breakwater. A boat trip to Dartmouth was great with very funny commentary from the Captain. There is so much to do in the surrounding area that even after a 2 week stay we couldn't fit it all in. It was great to return to Grockle Nook after a days exploring.

Excellent stay in a wonderful little cottage !!!

  • 4 of 5

Thanks you for a wonderful stay in Brixham.

It was a real treat to have such a large, pleasant place to stay after we had been cooped up in a small cruise ship room for a week.

The fresh flowers from the garden and the candies on arrival were just an example of the lovely treatment you give your guests. More like family than strangers.

It was a pleasure to be able to go out the door and it was only a short walk to the harbour and all the lovely shops and amenities in Brixham, not counting the treat of the best fish and chips in the world !!!!!!!

Thank you for a lovely stay and we would recommend your place to anyone looking for a chance to experience real British charm and hospitality.

Adele and John

Brixham is oozing with charm & character. Steeped in history that goes back several hundred years, it's not hard to absorb the atmosphere of the town. Life in Brixham centres around it's pretty harbour. Take a wander around the harbour side & watch the fishermen unload their daily catch. Situated in a suburb location for exploring the surrounding countryside. You are just 10 min walk to the harbour where you can enjoy a deep sea fishing trip or take a ferry cruise to either Torquay or Dartmouth along the breathtaking coastline. Spend the day shopping at the antique shops or art studios in Dartmouth, were The Royal Naval College is situated (you may just spot a member of the Royal family). Nearby Berry Head, Country Park boasts spectacular views across the bay, with ruins of a Napoleonic fort. Why not take a walk on Dartmoor, stop for a scone & clotted cream lunch at a country pub or spend the day on one of the many sandy beaches or splash away the day at the Water Park.

Other Activities: Go cart racing
