The house is a newly renovated lovely cottage at Brixham's hill at the harbor. You have great views from the house across the harbor and the whole town, even across the bay to Torquay. The house is well equipped and comfortable. We stayed with four people, which was ideal. You have all comfort with smart TV (2), Bluetooth speakers and good wifi. The beds are really comfy and the house has been tastefully decorated. All shops and restaurants are close by. Be aware though in Brixham you always have to walk up and down the hills. You can drive up to the house. The upper part of North View Road gets quite narrow between houses and parked cars. We almost got stuck with our SUV. Better just back up the short bit to the house and then park in the wider streets above like Mount Road. There are always some parking spaces there and they are free. We really liked the cottage and would definitely come back some other time.

This place is great. It's a short walk to the town/harbour (albeit on some steep steps!) which contains lots of great restaurants and pubs. It has been very recently refurbished and contains everything you need right down to a beautiful bottle opener from harrods! It was more than we could have asked and was ideal for us as a family with 2 small children. Brixham itself is a lovely town with a proper fishing industry at its core. The stand out feature for me was the unpretentious, fresh flavoursome and fishy food. Would definitely visit winkle cottage again.
