At a Glance

Beautifully furnished and decorated Victorian cottage with stunning sea views from every floor - 3 bedrooms - sleeps 6. Front decked terrace with sea views. Full central heating and free wi-fi. Dogs welcome!
Enjoy breakfast, lunch or maybe a G&T with magnificent coastal views from the front deck of this beautifully presented 3 bedroom house. Nestled in a small terrace above Brixham's outer harbour, Prospero's Rest enjoys uninterrupted views of the harbour, marina and beyond to Torquay from every floor. And being just a 5 minute walk from the centre of town you can experience Brixham's lovely shops, cafes and restaurants in no time. Small well behaved dogs are also welcome making this a very family friendly property.

Decorated in a bright modern style and featuring quality comfortable furnishings and fixtures, Prospero's Rest is a real home from home in which to relax and enjoy this beautiful area.

The ground floor features the front deck, a lounge with a super squishy sofa and armchairs, a dining area for 6 and a modern well equipped kitchen with a pretty courtyard behind.

On the first floor is a family bathroom and an additional separate w/c, a twin bunk room and the master bedroom with ample storage space. The bed in the master bedroom faces a large window - so you can wake up to those incredible sea views.

The top floor attic bedroom has a kingsize zip and link bed, plenty of storage and once again features a large window with wonderful sea views. The steps to the attic room are steep and narrow - so please be careful.

The property benefits from full gas central heating - nice and cosy for those winter breaks and free Wi-Fi is also provided.

You can legally park for 15 minutes on the double yellow lines by the entrance steps to the terrace to enable loading and unloading of your luggage.

Lovely break
Verified Up Front Reviews
Beautiful location and harbour views from bay windows. Nicely decorated, and comfortable stay. A little issue with the sinks in bathroom (one that wouldn’t drain and one that couldn’t hold water) Contacted agent, very responsive and they sent out someone to see sinks straight away. Both sinks needed parts to be ordered, so sadly sinks weren’t repaired whilst we were there. Otherwise a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend to friends.
It's all about the view.

The house is set in a hillside with no nearby parking, although there is 2 hour on street about 20 yards away and a long stay carpark at the bottom of the hill. If you don't like steps, best to avoid. If you're a communal type of person the open front terrace is great because that's where the view is. House itself is ok. Brixham as a place is a must see though - very beautiful.
Exceeded our expectations

Absolutely incredible stay, the property exceeded our expectations in fact the photographs didn’t do the property justice. Everything was perfect and high quality with everything you could possibly need to make the stay as homely as possible. We will definitely be coming back, thank you.

2nd time staying in this property,best views and comfy settee and chairs.Plenty of room in every part of the house,the small area out the back was great for our small dog to go out last thing at night or first thing in the morning. The heating was fab and easily adjusted so the house was always cosy and warm.
Cosy cottage in perfect location.

Prospero’s Rest is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday by the sea. What makes this property are the stunning views. The cottage itself is comfortable and well equipped. I would definitely recommend Prospero’ Rest and hope to return one day.
