From the road you will ascend a flight 6 steps to the entrance of the cottage which is arranged over 3 levels. On the ground floor is the double bed bedroom, large bathroom and access to the rear courtyard. The stairs take you up to the first floor to the galley kitchen and an open plan Dining/Living room from which there are lovely views over the rooftops to the inner and outer harbours.

Start your day off with a short saunter down to Brixham’s artisan quarter, “Middle Street”, brimming with independent coffee shops, artisan bakeries and cafés, then browse amongst the creative retailers including some of the town’s artists and photographers. For culinary enthusiasts, why not pick up some fresh fish from Brixham's famous fish market to prepare back in the cottage and then enjoy an after-dinner drink in the courtyard garden which can be accessed from the kitchen.
