Richard purchased this Cottage in 1986
Why Richard chose Brixham
Brixham is full of charm and packed with attractions and activities for people of all ages. The replica of the Golden Hind is moored just across the harbour and there are several safe beaches, a seawater swimming pool and rock pools to explore and all within walking distance from the cottage. The coastal walk is amazing to Dartmouth. The South Devon coastal path is close at hand for those who want to experience the breathtaking views over the English Channel. You can book on the harbour boat trips and fishing trips that leave the daily. The Dart Valley steam train stops close by and you can climb aboard to experience train travel from a bygone era. It runs from Paignton to Dartmouth several times a day. There are many quaint towns and villages all within easy driving distance and there are several local bus routes for those who want to leave the car behind. There are also many National Trust properties throughout South Devon.

Lovely property, fantastic location
Sailors Haunt is a great property overlooking Brixham Harbour with fantastic views. There are loads of restaurants to choose from and it's very easy to get around without using the car as you're so close to all the shops and ferries run from the harbour to various other towns. Overall a lovely property in a great location, would definitely recommend it
Neat and tidy house. All essentials provided and everything in good order. Comfortable bed, chairs. The electric meter was a surprise but , as it was good weather, we used very little electricity. The view of the harbour was a daily pleasure - able to sit and watch with a glass of wine. Cafes, restaurants in plenty and very easy to connect bus services. We parked the car in the allocated bay and used the local transport all week. Dartmouth, Torquay easy to get to. Walks to nearby coves and cliffs were a delight. We had good weather - which was a plus.
The house has three floors and the shower room is on the first - then through to the kitchen. Living on the second floor meant that the views were from high up over the harbour. Top floor had bedrooms and WC. All good.
A comfortable property with everything you need for a relaxing break. Superb location right on the front with fantastic views that you can see from your armchair.
What a view!
A great base from which to explore the South West Coast Path...that's if you can drag yourself away from the views from the cottage. The property itself was clean and comfortable. We'd like to return when visiting South Devon in the future.
Lovely place to stay for a short break
Would recommend this house to anyone. Good central location, lovely condion parking space very useful
