Dolphin Cottage is the ideal touring spot with plenty to explore or simply relax on the balcony and admire the beautiful views.

Dolphin Cottage dates back to 1850 when it was a former trawler captain’s residence. Set in the historical fishing port of Brixham, the cottage sits high in a pretty colourful terrace where no cars can access but there is ample parking just behind. There is a patio terrace for al fresco dining and to watch stunning sunsets. It has the most fantastic uninterrupted views out to the bay and over the fishing harbour and marina. Torquay is to your left, and to your right is Berry Head, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, 40 million years in the making. The harbour shops, restaurants and seafood kiosks are just a couple of minutes away. Why not try crabbing? Choose a spot, drop your line and take in the atmosphere of the fishing port. You can also take in the view of Brixham with its colourful houses cascading down on either side of the harbour. Fresh fish is available directly from the fishmarket. With 22 miles of spectacular coastline, water sports play a large part in the many leisure activities available within a few miles. For those preferring to stay on dry land, you will find some of the most beautiful coastal walks in the country to enjoy. The South West Coast Path National Trail has 630 miles of superb coastal walking. Take a ferry to Torquay with its bustling shops bistros, cafés and the coastal zoo, or a boat trip to maritime Dartmouth, where you can ride on the Dartmouth Steam Railway or leisurely cruise along the River Dart. Visit Agatha Christie’s Greenway house, Dartmoor with its tors and quaint villages. Fine golf courses are a short drive. Shop, pub and restaurant 250 yards.

    Fantastic views, comfortable and well equipped cottage - the wood fire was just perfect for November, close to local amenities. There are steps to access the cottage which were just about manageable with a pram and 4 month old. Otherwise highly recommended and hope to return.

    We enjoyed our stay for a week in the cottage. The cottage had fantastic views over the sea/harbour and over Brixham. It has excellent sea views from the lounge and 2 bedrooms which is great. We loved eating breakfast on the patio every day watching the boats go in and out. The cottage is up a hill and a few steps but very central to the harbour with shops, pubs and restaurants. It is definitely in one of the best locations

    Disappointed with the general cleanliness of the cottage.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for reviewing our cottage. Our cleaners work hard to keep the cottage to a high standard and previous reviews show this, I'm sorry that you felt that this was not the case our average score for cleanliness is 8.1 out of 10, we will take it up with our cleaning company, you have my contact details if you wish to forward any specific problems you noticed.

    We stayed here as three adults and three children, the accommodation was excellent though some of the mattresses are probably passed their best. The view was amazing and we could have sat on the patio and watched boats coming in and out the harbour all day. The property was relatively well equipped, but there is no wi-fi which should be considered essential these days. For sleeping 6 a dishwasher would have been a useful inclusion if you're self catering. It's nice that there's a washing machine, but a washer dryer would have been preferred to speed up the drying process. There was also no hair dryer or fans provided. The stairs into the loft conversion are very steep, but this is well published in the description. Those minor niggles aside, we had a wonderful time and Brixham is a great setting off point for the whole Torbay area.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your feed back. We agree, the views are amazing and we are pleased that you had a good stay. I am sorry that you felt that the mattresses were past their best, the main bedroom mattress was new in 2015 and we have a programme for others to be replaced in due course. All of the cottage equipment is listed on the website and I also advised that we do not supply a hairdryer or fans but we do take all requests on board and we now have WIFI as this has been mentioned by previous guests. Once again thanks for your review and comments.
