English Country Cottages

From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


A truly delightful boutique cottage boasts an idyllic roof top garden - perfect for relaxing and enjoying the harbour views.

This truly delightful fisherman’s cottage, built around 1770, overlooks the busy little harbour of Brixham with uninterrupted views of Torbay and out to sea. The holiday cottage has been lovingly and sympathetically restored, retaining many original and period features. It boasts a small enclosed decked area leading to a flight of 34 steep stone steps to a roof-top level garden, with spectacular sea and town views.

Situated off the main harbour in one of the oldest, pretty side streets, Fisherman’s Cottage is a Victorian terraced house which has been completely renovated to provide a spacious holiday cottage, and is decorated and furnished to a very good standard. With a large window to give fantastic views out to sea, making this an ideal location for a family holiday, or for friends to get together. There are many fantastic restaurants, tea shops and gift shops to browse. Brixham has many activities all year round including a Pirate Festival each year, the trawler race and so much more. The harbour shops and restaurants are a 3-minute stroll away, or take a boat trip to Torquay and Dartmouth for a day’s fishing.

The coastal path is easily accessed leading to lovely beaches and coves; the popular Fishcombe Cove is at the top of the road. Brixham forms the third part of Torbay - the others being Torquay and Paignton. The bay is known as the English Riviera due to its unique micro-climate. Walkers and navigators can escape and explore the depths of Dartmoor, spot wild ponies, cross ancient stone bridges spanning the clear waters of the River Dart, and other rivers. You can also feel the somewhat eerie presence of the tors, seven rocky hills presiding majestically over the moors. Take the ferry across to Dartmouth, the neighbouring town to Brixham, set on and across the River Dart. At the mouth of the river are Kingswear and Dartmouth Castles with the rocky waters of the estuary lapping at their feet. There are many National Trust properties and Agatha Christie’s summer house is well worth a visit. Shop, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

    Great location to explore Brixham and all that's around locally with car parking space nearby if you want to drive out further. Great views over the town, everything you need in the cottage and really comfortable for our stay. Would recommend to everyone. Might just bring some earplugs if you are a light sleeper as the seagulls are pretty noisy in the morning.

    We had a fantastic week at Fishermans Cottage, the facilities were great and couldn't wish for more. The decor was very tastefully done and matched old with the new reflecting the character of the cottage and it's surroundings. The ever changing view gave us lots of interest whilst relaxing in the lounge. The wine and biscuits left for us was very much appreciated. Thank you.

    This cottage has the most wonderful views and is nicely decorated. It's location was ideal and with the help of boats and buses we never used the car. Outside the front door the steep steps would benefit from a grab handle. The kitchen is a little dark but well equipped. There is a decked area outside but sadly does not see much sun because the walls are so high. We were advised that there was an additional seating / viewing area but when we scaled the 34 steps to get to it it was very badly overgrown and felt a bit scary. We are camera junkies so had been looking forward to using the area for some great pics. The Friday night we arrived we ended up sleeping in the room with single beds in because the slats on the double bed were faulty and could not be repaired until Monday. The top bedroom was a tad cold. Lovely bathroom, great shower The lounge has a slightly to small TV but fantastic big window overlooking the harbour. Beware of the blue couch if you already have a bad back. Apart from the odd cobweb, a little dust in the lounge, it was nice and clean. We wouldn't stay there again for the simple reason we never stay anywhere twice. Lots to do an see in and around the area would definitely recommend Brixham.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Unfortunately a couple of slats under the mattress had become misplaced overnight and our guests felt unable to lift them back into place. We were unable to get anyone around until first thing Monday morning. I had become aware that the seat pads on the sofas has become uncomfortable and I have now managed to obtain superior replacements. I also accept that the garden had become overgrown. Access to the garden is restricted to times when the cottage is vacant. Again my apologies. We try to maintain high standards of cleanliness but I'm afraid spiders never seem to take a day off! I am delighted that these guests still enjoyed their holiday at Fisherman’s Cottage.
