Winkle cottage is an 1800's fisherman's cottage nestled into the Brixham hillside, looking out North over the bay toward Torquay and out to sea. The property has undergone an extensive restoration in 2017 and has been lovingly restored in a sympathetic manner, retaining a wealth of charm and character. The cottage boasts an abundance of original features, including exposed stone walls, 2 feature fireplaces and a fantastic sun terrace overlooking the harbour bowl and open ocean.
