About Mrs Sharon Shahid

We moved here from Canada, we spent many holidays and even our honeymoon in Brixham. We wanted to share this beautiful part of the world with others.

Mrs Sharon Shahid purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Mrs Sharon Shahid chose Torbay

We opened Grockle Nook in 2009 and have met many people from around the world and made many friends over the years. We find it very rewarding when people come and say how beautiful Brixham is and that the apartment is a great place to stay after a very hectic day of site seeing, hiking,bicycling or just sunning them selfs on one of the beautiful beaches in the area.

What makes this apartment unique

Free off road Parking and WiFi. A super comfortable king size bed.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Bed very comfortable and garden lovely.

Thank you.

Very good break.

The location of the property is very convenient for Brixham & surrounding areas. Everything & more was provided by the owners and the welcome pack was an excellent little addition. We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks holiday there. We would not hesitate to recommend the accommodation.

Lovely stay in beautiful Devon

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay at the apartment, very grateful for the welcome pack on arrival after a long journey and it was very clean ,comfortable and stocked with everything we needed. Brixham itself was lovely and had great fish and chips down at the harbour, also a great base which to travel and see other parts of beautiful Devon.

The apartment was everything i expected, very clean and tidy.

  • 4 of 5

On arriving at the apartment i had a very nice welcome greeting from Sharon, the apartment was very clean and the welcome pack of fruit and wine was most welcome. it is situated only a 10 min walk from bus stops to main destinations, It is very central to a lot of local attractions whether you travel by car or bus and the steam train is a must if you want to visit Dartmouth. I would certainly recommend staying here, the only down side is the property could do with a little touching up in places and the garden needs trimming back to let more sun in when sitting outside, other than that i was very happy to stay here.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments on how clean and tidy the apartment was. We strive to make every guest as comfortable as we can, we even have a welcome pack of fresh bread , milk, biscuits, fruit, chocolates, a bottle of red wine, a Devonshire cream tea for two. Everything is supplied were all you need is your cloths. A true home away from home experience. Due to the past weather we have experienced we have been unable to trim the hedges back , until now ,the weather has picked up and this trimming has been done. There is a very large garden at the side of the property which is a sun trap. This garden has sun lounger's, swing, B-B-Q, table ,chairs ,sun umbrella. The shaded area that you refer to being in need of trimming back is the smoking area at the rear of the apartment . This area is kept shaded for privacy. There is also a small table, chairs, table brolly and ashtrays in this area. Thank you for your review we hope to see you again in the near future.

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.

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, where 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
