If you’re determined to see ‘real’ Devon during your holiday, then it’s got to be the fishing resort of Brixham. Perched quietly on the South Devon coast, Brixham’s cobbled streets lead to a picturesque working harbour lined with cream tea serving cafes galore. There’s a nostalgic feeling to Brixham holidays that makes them feel a world away from the daily grind, and it’s one of the friendliest towns we reckon you’ll ever find yourself in! You’ll slip into a lifestyle of beach walks and long chats over coffee, and if you love a little seafood you’ll be in Heaven.
A break at Lighthouse View is all about embracing coastal life and spending quality time with family in a relaxing setting. With parking, Wi-Fi, three bedrooms, this really is the perfect base to explore Brixham. Enjoy the panoramic views out to sea, across Brixham and Torbay too!
Set in an enviable position high above the bustling harbour and pretty town, Rest A Shore is the perfect place to kick back and admire the wonderful views.
Some of the best Brixham attractions have got to be its laidback charm and gorgeous scenery, but there’s plenty to keep you and the kids busy during your holiday when you’re not tucking into fish and chips. If you follow the South West Coast Path from the harbourside, you’ll wander your way to Berry Head National Nature Reserve. Pop into the bird watching hut and watch the waves crash against the cliffs below and you might just spot one of the seals that call the area home.If you’re something of an Agatha Christie fan, you’ll find Greenway, her former summer retreat tucked into the countryside just a short drive away. A popular Brixham attraction all year round, the house and gardens are owned by the National Trust, and they’re just as Dame Agatha left them.
One of the nicest things about the beaches in Brixham is that the area’s coastline is peppered with little stretches of sand. Every beach and cove has its very own character, and everyone has their favourite. For those of you who like to find a spot far from the madding crowds, head to Fishcombe Cove. This shingle beach is backed by cliffs, so the waters are calmer than some of the others.For popularity and convenience, it’s got to be Breakwater Beach. Just a short stroll from the harbour, this one scooped another Blue Flag in 2018. With a Seaside Award and a nod in the Good Beach Guide, it’s easy to see why this is one of the best-loved Brixham beaches! And then there’s Churston Cove. The kind of sleepy cove that the Famous Five would have gone crazy for, this one is a little tricky to get to (not ideal for pushchairs), but you’ll be rewarded with some of the bay’s most breathtaking views.
