Brixham Holiday Cottages

There’s a nostalgic feeling to Brixham holidays that makes them feel a world away from the daily grind; a friendliness from the locals who call the town home as well as a tangible connection to its seafaring past. This picturesque town perched quietly on Devon’s south coast is still a bustling fishing port, where clusters of colourful cottages in every shade of the rainbow seemingly tumble down the hill towards the harbour’s quay, with boats and trawlers offloading their daily hauls ready to be transformed into the local restaurants’ ‘catch of the day’.   Read More

Did you know? A local’s guide to holidays in Brixham…

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.

Beaches in Brixham

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.

Restaurants in Brixham

You only have to mention Brixham to a foodie and their eyes will light up. The restaurants in Brixham make it their business to showcase the fresh fish and produce from the region in all its glory- and they’ve got it down to a T. Brixham’s pretty harbour is lined with restaurants and cafes, and you can wander into any one that takes your fancy and expect a warm welcome followed by a sumptuous meal. Dining in Brixham may be a laidback affair, but it’s all about enjoying the very best of the region.

Rockfish is owned by celebrity chef Mitch Tonks, and we have to say he knows how to serve up the British classics with a twist. Beamers serves up classic seafood dished with beautiful views across the harbour, or the Breakwater Coffee Shop is a firm favourite for a pit stop during a busy day.

Dog Friendly Brixham

So laidback it’s almost horizontal, it’s no surprise that the dog friendly Brixham scene is a thriving one! Dogs are welcome on many of the area’s beaches, and we can’t think of a pub in the town that wouldn’t welcome a four-legged friend inside too. Fishcombe Cove and Shoalstone Beach are dog friendly throughout the year, so much of your time will be spent throwing sticks and enjoying the waves together.

The Breakwater Bistro welcomes dogs too, and that means you get to tuck into a bowl of local mussels without leaving your pet behind. Better still, the bistro’s just beside Shoalstone Beach, so you can pop in to whet your whistle after a wander.

 

  • Where’s the best place to get fish and chips in Brixham?
    Where do we start? As locals we’ve had our fair share of Brixham’s finest F&C’s with a few of our all time favourites being Simply Fish, Brixham’s Fish Restaurant and Rockfish (also great if you’re gluten free). David’s Fish & Chips is pretty much a Brixham institution but beware; you’ll need to be very hungry to polish off their large portion of cod – it’s humungous.
  • Does Brixham have a beach?
    Yes. Breakwater Beach in the direction of Berry Head is a lovely little pebble beach which is sheltered to one side by the breakwater. Popular with families, there are rocks to climb and crystal-clear water for taking a dip in; and if you like to skim stones you’re in for a treat! The Breakwater Café is right on the beach so you’ll be able to grab yourself a bite to eat after your swim or enjoy a drink while watching the sun set over the bay. Dogs are allowed on the beach between 1st October and 30th April. The beach at St Marys however is open to dogs all year round and can be reached from the car park at Sharkham Point. Not far from the heart of the town, it's a secluded cove that's mainly sandy, and is a lovely spot for swimming and snorkelling.
  • Is Brixham a good place for a holiday with children?
    Absolutely! Crabbing, fishing, boat trips and a visit to a ‘real’ pirate ship are among some of the activities you can expect to enjoy. Being one of the towns that make up Torbay means that the attractions of Paignton and Torquay are just a short way away including the zoo, sandy beaches, and Paignton Pier. And if you’re looking for fresh air adventure, a real delight is the walk down through either Battery Gardens or Churston Woods to discover the hidden coves at Fishcombe and Churston.
  • Does Brixham have any events?
    Plenty. Brixham’s social calendar is usually a busy one. 2022 and beyond will see its regular line up of crowd-pleasers taking place including The Pirate Festival, Brixfest, Fishstock, Brixham Crab Festival and Lanterns, Lights & Illuminations.
  • Does Brixham have any vegan restaurants?
    Yes. It’s no secret that Brixham’s seafood graces some of the poshest restaurants around the country so it’s little wonder that it’s a firm fixture on most local menus. This being the case, if you’re vegan you might be wondering if you’ll be stuck for places to eat out, but you needn’t be. The Curious Kitchen, DillyDally Tearoom and The Larder are among some of the eateries offering an inspired range of vegan delights within the town, with one patron citing ‘the best range of vegan cakes I have come across in the bay!’; high praise indeed!
