Across to Brixham Harbour and Torbay, Cliff Cottage has a quirky triangular shape and it just oozes charm. There is no other place in Brixham quite like it. This surprisingly spacious cottage has been built to make the most of the stunning views over the harbour and coastline, and is conveniently situated as it is just 100 yards from the harbour and town centre. The property benefits from a balcony off the living area, which makes an ideal place to sit and watch the boats go by. There is also a garden with seating area, which also offers views across the harbour. This detached holiday cottage has been furnished and decorated to a good standard and makes perfect accommodation for families and couples alike. The vehicle access, for unloading luggage, is approximately 30-metres from the entrance to the property.
With Agatha Christie’s former home, Greenway (National Trust), being practically on the doorstep, Cliff Cottage is a great base from which to visit this wonderful piece of history. There are many ways to arrive at Greenway. One way would be to take a boat trip from Brixham Harbour and sail past some of South Devon’s most beautiful coastline, where you may even see some dolphins.
Visit Paignton, which has a wide range of great activities for children of all ages, from penny arcades on the pier, to seeing all the animals at the zoo. There is a central green that is home to a multiplex cinema, crazy golf and there is also the pier which has many rides and amusements to enjoy.

Dartmoor also boasts a variety of cycle routes, both on and off road as well as horse-riding, climbing, letterboxing, geo-caching or kayaking.
