Property Description

Offering some of the most spectacular coastal views of Torbay, Captains Cottage is situated in a row of properties overlooking Brixham Harbour. These cottages were originally built for the town’s fishermen, high above the harbour, where they could keep watch on their resting fishing vessels in the harbour below. From the cottage there are views right across the bay towards Paignton and Torquay. Captains Cottage is just 5 minutes from the harbour and shops, and just a short drive from many of the local beaches. The historical towns of Dartmouth and Totnes are both within a few miles, whilst the livelier seaside towns of Paignton and Torquay are also on the doorstep. Shops ¼ mile.

30 steps down to entrance (no handrail in places). Two bedrooms with rugs on wooden floor; one double and one bunk. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. Open-sided stairs to first floor: Open-plan living/dining room with harbour views. Kitchen with patio doors. Open-tread stairs to second floor: Sitting room with two single futon beds (alternative sleeping) and viewing platform.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Captain’s Cottage overlooks Brixham harbour and all of Torbay so there is always something to see. It is not a location for the faint hearted as there are steep steps where ever you go but you leave fitter and all the exercise justifies the delicious cream teas. May 2012.
  2. It is a very comfortable, well equiped cottage with stunning views. The steep steps from garage to house are tricky at first but we got used to them! There’s a lot to do in the area, numerous good places to eat AND we left the car in the garage all week - a real bonus! Oct 2011.
  3. Be prepared for steps/hills from and to cottage, you get used to it after a few days! Sept 2011.
  4. Lovely location, if you have the legs for all the steps to and from the harbour. Property a little dated but reasonably clean and tidy. The big plus is the loft room, where you can sit and watch harbour life in the relaxed privacy of your own ’holiday home’. April 2011.
  5. The views. Dec 2010.
  6. The cottage was excellent. The views from the living room and "top deck" were stunning. The accommodation surpassed all our expectations. March 2010.
  7. Although it’s a little old fashioned, this cottage provided a comfortable base for enjoying Brixham and for resting after tacking the steps to and from the shops and harbour. The view from the top floor of the cottage is just wonderful. Many happy hours were spent watching the boats, people and seagulls going by. Oct 2009.
  8. This cottage was well set out, well maintained, and an excellent setting. Lots of steps to and from the cottage but views are second to none, a real homely atmosphere, thanks. Aug 2009.
  9. Fantastic views, kitchen & bathroom in good condition. Bedrooms average, lounge average. Would only rate the accommodation as 3*. Sept 2009.
