A modernised cottage with fabulous harbour views
Full of charm, Castaway Cottage, Brixham is a beautifully modernised holiday home with three bedrooms and sea views from most windows. The open-plan living room flows from the contemporary kitchen and dining area to the sitting area and picture window with ever-changing harbour views. There's a teeny furnished terrace for breakfast and drinks and on-street parking nearby. Stairs lead up to the first floor bedroom with twin beds and a family bathroom. Up a second flight of stairs you'll find a bedroom with bunk beds and the well-appointed master bedroom with double bed, Juliet balcony and sea views.
Bag the L-shaped sofa and relax with a glass of sparkling wine and a magazine. Let time drift by as you watch the hustle and bustle of the harbour below.
Castaway Cottage is in the heart of Brixham's old fishing harbour. You'll find curiosity shops, art galleries and boat trips just a short walk away along with a replica of Drake's 16th century Golden Hind which can be explored. The waterfront cafés are perfect for breakfast and lunch and you'll want to sample dinner at some of Brixham's fine seafood restaurants. Walk along the coastal path to Berry Head National Nature Reserve or visit neighbouring Shoalstone Beach with its saltwater pool. Churstone Golf Course, Paignton Zoo, Coleton Fishacre (National Trust house and gardens) and the lovely town of Dartmouth are all within five miles.
