About rosalie reeder
My partner and I live in the midlands. We both love the south west and decided to look for a property to buy. We toured the area and decided on Brixham as we wanted somewhere to spend our winters. We spotted a run down property in need of a complete renovation and so we bought it and spent the next year lovingly restoring it. Upper cottage used to be a merchant traders house and dates back to the 17th century. Because Upper Cottage is our HolidayHome we have taken special care to provide good quality furnishings and utensells.You will find every thing there that you need to make your holiday a memorable one. Upper Cottage will provide you with a lovely environment to spend quality time with your family. We are retired now and love to spend time at the cottage.
rosalie reeder purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why rosalie reeder chose Brixham
We bought our holiday home in brixham because we fell in love with the place.and as we intended to use the cottage in the winter time we wanted somewhere with a more gentle climate. Brixham is a little micro climate and can often be very mild during winter months. Its charming and busy harbour and the situation of the cottage being on the level of the town means you can nip in and out of the town and harbour on foot without the need for a car. its in an area of outstanding natural beauty with lots to see close by, lovely walks and fantastic pubs and resturants. We chose Brixham to buy our holiday home because it is a thriving fishing comunity.not just a holiday resort. So many seaside towns die in the winter but although Brixham is quieter, it is still lively out of season.
What makes this Cottage unique
We are close to the harbour and town with the manor pub being the nearest pub only 50 or so yrds away. numerous shops restaurants and bars within a 5 minute walk from the property. buses to all torbay resorts leave from the square across from the property which we enjoy for free with our bus pass!!We love to walk around the harbour and up on to Berry Head which is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The beaches of fishcomb and churston cove are a 15 minute walk from the harbour and you can take your dog on these all year round. Brixham welcomes dogs and many of the pubs and resturants allow them in. The cottage is cosy for winter lets with full gas central heating (all you have to do is turn up the thermostat and on it comes) and a flame effect stove fire in the lounge fireplace.

Five days in Brixham
Despite the mix up with the instructions for obtaining the keys everything else went smoothly. A central location well appointed with a very helpful landlady. We enjoyed our stay
Perfect location for all the amenities in Brixham. The accommodation was larger than expected, very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed included. The owner and caretakers were a pleasure to deal with.

Upper Cottage Brixham....a wonderful cottage on the coast in a beautiful part of Devon
Upper Cottage Brixham is the place you want to stay in for your relaxing holiday whether it's summer, winter, autumn or spring.
My family and I spent the whole month of December 2018 at the cottage and couldn't have been happier. A home away from home and the position could not have been more perfect. Rosalie has thought of everything and the cottage was warm and cosy.
One word of warning for those who have a problem with stairs, there are steep stairs leading up to the lounge room from the front door and another lot of spiral stairs leading from the lounge to the upstairs bedrooms and bathroom. We loved the whole Brixham experience and will never forget our wonderful time there.

hello Beth and James
thank you so much for this 5 star review...hope the rest of your holiday goes well...just to say that to avoid confusion for guests reading this review that although there is one turn in the upper stair case it is not an iron spiral one...rosalie
Wow we thought that your home is brilliant and very interesting
Thanks for sharing this place with us we enjoyed it and would recommend it to friends
thanks so much Malcolm...glad u enjoyed our cottage..come back soon
Great flat, excellent location, brilliant owner. Loved it!
The whole experience from booking, arrival, our stay and liaison with the owner was five star. The flat was perfect for our family; 2 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs. Very well equipped. The location is ideal for walks (long and short), pubs, convenience stores, shopping, fishing, crabbing, etc. Or just chilling in the flat. The owner Rosalie was very quick to respond to our correspondence, very helpful with any questions we had and just generally all you require and more from an owner. Thanks Rosalie and looking forward to returning soon.
thanks so much kevin for taking the trouble to post this review...we love having nice people in our cottage ...I do hope u return next year...kind regards rosalie x
