The property

Lying in the quaint fishing town of Brixham along one of the many winding streets sits Pilchard Cottage, boasting one bedroom for a couple's romantic retreat.

After undergoing a fantastic renovation, this old fisherman's cottage offers a rustic bolthole for two right in the centre of this gorgeous coastal town.

Enjoy quality time with your partner in the open-plan living space spending your evening watching a favourite film or planning the next day's activities while the electric fire adds a homely ambiance.

Perch at the breakfast bar for an intimate meal for two, with the contemporary style of the kitchen contrasting well with the traditional painted stone and original timber beams.

Prepare your favourite meals in the kitchen which is amply-equipped for its size boasting an electric oven, two-ring electric hob, microwave and fridge.

Head up to the first floor to find the lovely king-size bedroom where you can rest under the A-frame beams and skylights, with a shower room up here too, home to a walk-in shower.

Step out of the cottage's quaint stable door and onto the pretty streets of Brixham to begin your exploration of this bustling fishing town; start by heading to the iconic full size replica of The Golden Hind, Sir Frances Drake's ship, taking pride of place in the harbour for over fifty years.

Brixham's Breakwater Beach was awarded Blue Flag status and is one of the cleanest in the English Riviera and popular with scuba divers, while nearby Fishcombe and Churston Cove is a hidden gem accessed via a long, steep path offering a tranquil setting.

Stroll along Brixham's Breakwater for great views of the town before heading to one of the many excellent restaurants serving arguably the freshest seafood in the country!

Take a trip out to sea for a memorable excursion to soak up Devon's beautiful coastal scenery whether on a sea kayak trip or a boat cruise.

Take walks along the South West Coast Path and find hidden coves and secluded bays, with the path taking you south down to Kingswear, past the National Trust's Coleton Fishacre House, with ferries available to hop over to Dartmouth.

Lots more attractions lie within easy reach including Berry Head National Nature Reserve, Paignton Zoo and Kents Cavern Prehistoric Caves.

Enjoy a scenic stay in Brixham with your loved one at Pilchard Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Dartmouth 5 miles; Paignton 6 miles; Torquay 8 miles.

Brixham is a working fishing harbour located on the southern side of Torbay, the area known as The English Riviera, famed for its sunny mild climate all year round. The focal point of the harbour is a life size replica of The Golden Hind, Sir Francis Drake’s ship. The prettiest part of Brixham has small cottages in hilly narrow winding lanes leading to the harbour where all the activity is centred. Home to Britain’s largest fishing fleet which regularly lands their catch in the harbour, Brixham fish market sells to major restaurants in the UK. Brixham is the ideal destination for a traditional holiday with many family attractions around Torbay including two Blue Flag beaches, Paignton Zoo and many regattas and maritime events throughout the year. There are a host of safe cycle trails in the area, the South West Coastal Path and some of the best golf courses in the region. A good mix of relaxation or action, to suit all ages, where you are never far from the sea.
