A FISHERMANS COTTAGE STYLE NEW-BUILD APARTMENT AND A REAL HOME FROM HOME
Colin & Sally
About Colin & Sally
We have only recently 'rediscovered' Brixham. This really pretty and picturesque fishing town has undergone significant investment and we fell in love with the feel and charm of the place. We visit regularly and simply can't get enough of Brixham!!
Colin & Sally purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Colin & Sally chose Brixham
We were looking for a holiday home in Brixham and came across this new build property in February 2014. We were immediately struck by the fact that this block of 4 apartments was built in total keeping with the locality having been constructed in traditional Fishermans Cottage style in a conservation area. However, as this is a new-build, the apartments come complete with all modern construction and insulation methods so we get the best of both worlds!
What makes this Apartment unique
I think we said it above; this is a thoroughly 21st Century property constructed in traditional 18th Century Fishermans Cottage style
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
A well equipped, clean and comfortable flat. Plenty to do and see in the area
Great location, family friendly
Has everything needed for a family holiday. Well furnished, clean, with thoughtful touches throughout. In a great location with access to Brixham centre and adjacent to a car park. Good base to explore the area as it offers easy access to Paignton, Torquay and other places of interest.
Great central location. Ideal family holiday.
Very clean and very welcoming. Will come back.
Thanks for taking the trouble to provide a review Andrew. We're really pleased that you enjoyed your holiday at Captains Rest and look forward to welcoming you back.
Flat was well equipped, the only issue we had was parking next to the flat was short stay so had to move the car quite a few times and repair work in the long stay car park made it difficult to find a space so had to pay for parking on top of the permit we had already paid for. The only other downside was the smell of cigarette smoke coming from flat 2, on the communal stair and if we had our balcony doors open. Not being smokers we seemed to notice it more maybe. The wine and card that greeted us after a long and slow journey was a very nice touch and milk in the fridge was a huge bonus
Hi Helen & Family. Many thanks for taking time to submit your review. We are sorry to hear that you had some issues with the car park repair works and ended up paying extra - as an aside, have you spoken to Torbay Council about a refund as they would have been responsible for the works?? Also, as non-smokers ourselves, I appreciate the downside of smelling cigarette smoke on the stairwell although we have not noticed this ourselves. Pleased to hear that you were happy with the welcome and the overall standard of the accommodation. Many thanks for staying at Captains Rest.
Great apartment in a fantastic location
We very much enjoyed our stay at this apartment, it was well equipped with comfortable beds in a fantastic location. We arrived on Saturday 29th June 2019, the hottest day of the year up to that date and I was worried that the apartment might be hot and stuffy. This was not the case. There are windows on three sides of the building and double doors to the Juliet balcony so it was easy to get a flow of air through.
Thank you Sally and Colin, we had a really good time and didn't want to leave!
Location really excellent. Apartment was lovely and very well equipped. We like to make our own meals so discovering a good selection of cookware and serving dishes was great.
I would highly recomend this place as a relaxing holiday stay
Hi Lynn, thanks for taking the time to leave feedback - we never take reviews for granted - it's always important to us to understand if we are hitting the mark. We look forward to welcoming you back to Captain’s Rest.
