Stylishly updated traditional fishermen’s cottage located close to Brixham harbour, boasting separate outdoor spaces, and sea views from many of the principal rooms.

One of the UK’s busiest fishing harbours, with a proud maritime history, Brixham makes a fantastic place for a holiday in South Devon. The harbour is the main focal point of the town, but in recent years it has also become known for its arts scene and there are several galleries and workshops which are lovely to spend an afternoon browsing. The restaurants, as visitors might expect, mostly specialise in the local seafood brought home by the fishermen, and there are plenty which are well-regarded, some offering stunning sea views. Beach-lovers won’t be disappointed, as the town boasts several beaches, from the main Breakwater Beach to the quiet and secluded St Mary’s Bay.

External steep steps lead to the front door of this three-storey property, they pass through the porch before coming to a narrow hallway.  The first bedroom, at the front of the house, is a light and airy double room with its own TV and a window seating looking out towards the harbour. Returning to the hallway, the bathroom, at the end of the corridor has a deep roll-top bath, a separate walk-in shower and WC.

Stairs lead to the first floor, which is where the main living accommodation is situated, comprising of a kitchen/diner which opens onto the lounge. This is a relaxing and welcoming space, dominated by the harbour views and the exposed stone walls. There are two sofas here, as well as a cosy wood burner, and TV. The kitchen/diner at the top of the stairs offers a dining table seating six, an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine.

 Further stairs lead to the second floor, where the second bedroom is located in the eaves of the house, and therefore has some reduced head-height. This charming room has lovely wooden floors, exposed stone walls, wonderful harbour views, a king-size bed, and, like the other bedroom, its own TV. The en-suite shower room has a large walk-in shower and WC.

Outside the cottage, there is an enclosed seating area with outdoor sofas to the front of the property, a great place to relax with drinks and watch the activity on the harbour. To the rear of the property there is steep steps leading to terraced seating areas, making it easy to find a spot to enjoy the sunshine, whatever the time of day. The cottages also benefits from a parking space on the quayside.

A lovely cottage, a fantastic view and parking space which was very useful, Once parked the car stayed there for our trip as it wasnt needed, theres a fairly good bus service, beaches you can walk to and loads of decent places to eat a 5 minute walk away. Our favourite restaurants were Miguels Tapas and Alberos although everywhere we ate was good. Read moreThe cottage itself is of a good standard with comfortable beds with excellent bedding.

A perfect cottage overlooking Brixham Harbour with absolutely stunning views! The cottage was well equipped and conveniently within walking distance to the shops, pubs and restaurants. It also comes with 1 parking space too which is located across the harbour and can be seen from the living room window.

Sandy Bottom Cottage has a breathtaking view over the harbour and is very well equipped for a great holiday for 2 couples. The bedrooms on ground floor & 2nd floor provide privacy & comfort with the living space on the first floor offering all you need for a comfortable stay. Brixham is well placed to visit many parts of the Devon coast & Dartmoor.Read more There are 2 small supermarkets in town for supplies & small shops to browse.

Very cosy cottage. The views of the harbour absolutely make your holiday. The walk back from the town isnt as bad as many reviewers have made out if you take the Broad Stairs route after turning left & sharp right out of the cottage. The private parking bay is a god send & my vehicle is 5 metres long and just about fit in the space.

Lovely cottage with great views of the harbour the only downside is the narrow streets so if you have a larger vehicle you need to be aware of this when unloading your luggage

It is a lovely cottage in a quaint location. Easy access to shops and restaurants by foot as no parking at the cottage. Steep access which is ok if your fit enough. The cottage is well equipped and was lovely and clean.

The view is amazing, overlooking beautiful Brixham, but with the great aspect comes steep stairs and steps which could be difficult for people with mobility issues. The home is well equipped, as clean as dog friendly allows, and has a lovely seating area at the front of the property. Good value for money.

Well equipt. Good furniture and overall really clean. Location with nice view onto brixham harbour but lots of steps to reach the cottage from where the car park is. So you need to be able to walk steep hill. Not for elderly guests.
