View Room Information
There’s much more to Brixham than its famous fish quay, rainbow cottages and seafaring history. Despite being one of the busiest working fishing ports in the UK, the town has such a wonderful ease about it that it's not only been enticing holidaymakers for decades, but also more recently, a slew of talented artisans, craftmen (and women), and restaurateurs. Being so close to the South Hams as well as to the towns of Paignton and Torquay, means that Brixham is wonderfully positioned to offer visitors some of South Devon’s most popular beaches and attractions too, so all in all this really is a fantastic place to enjoy coastal life at its best.

Perched high up on North View Road, The Captain’s Cottage claims some of the best views in Brixham, its humble Victorian terrace facade concealing a beautifully designed, contemporary interior. Recently refurbished to a superb standard, the house which sleeps six, boasts three immaculate bedrooms along with airy open plan living / dining, a high spec kitchen, two bathrooms and an outdoor utility and games room. Gorgeous furnishings, fabulous wall art and contemporary styling are surpassed only by the exceptional views of the harbour and bay which can be enjoyed from all three floors of the cottage, so whether early risers or night owls, guests can witness the changing moods of the sea and town below from their own unique vantage point.

With attention paid to every detail by the home’s owners, expect superior quality throughout, like luxurious beds from Feather & Black with Harrison Spinks and Hypnos mattresses, Sonos Bluetooth speakers, Grohe rainfall showers and furniture by brands like Loaf and Habitat. Outside there’s a sun-drenched furnished terrace for those all-important evening drinks or for alfresco dining, and for those partial to sunbathing or to catching up on their holiday reading in the fresh air, they'll be able to laze back on the balcony and soak up the views.

*Please note that the external steps are steep and there is a sharp drop off one side. Caution is therefore advised for all guests including children who should be supervised. Guests with limited mobility may therefore find the property unsuitable.

Welcome to Brixham

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’.
