Is is set in The Cove, a peaceful new development just a short walk from Brixham Harbour. There are spectacular sea views from the lounge, master bedroom and balcony.

A 2 bedroom top floor self-catering holiday apartment in Brixham with a large balcony and spectacular sea views. The Cove is a recently built collection of luxury apartments on the South Devon coast nestled above Fishcombe Cove in the picturesque fishing town of Brixham.

Plover 2 benefits from its elevated position and is just minutes from the beach. The location is perfect whether you’re looking to laze in the sun, launch a paddle board off the beach or get out and about around South Devon.

The open plan kitchen, dining and living spaces are all set up to take full advantage of the waterfront location with new sofas and chairs ( not in current photos). Two light and elegant bedrooms only enhance the luxury radiating throughout the apartment, and a private balcony will allow you to enjoy the splendour of watching the many pleasure craft and working trawlers in this beautifully sheltered bay.

Plover 2 is fitted out to a high standard with bespoke furniture and fittings including a telescope to watch the pleasure craft and trawlers in this beautiful sheltered bay. The full length balcony is equipped with outdoor furniture, barbecue, cosy blankets and mood lighting making it an ideal space to take in the views all year round. This property is very family friendly and a travel cot and high chair are present. The heated open air swimming pool is sure to be a hit with the children too!

Brixham is fast becoming a culinary hub and nowhere is this more evident than alongside the harbour where you can enjoy the many cafés and restaurants serving catches landed just metres away. In the evening, restaurants such as Rockfish & The Old Market House serve up a varied and enjoyable menu.

Take a stroll up to Berry Head, the Napoleonic fort which protected this stretch of land for hundreds of years, or for the young at heart there is the Splashdown water park just 10 minutes’ drive away in Paignton. Either way, fitting everything into one stay may leave you needing to book a return visit.

Plover 2 is furnished and presented to a high standard in a contemporary style and is a fabulous retreat for families or couples wanting a bit of extra space from which to explore this gem of a location.

Please note that the heated open air pool is seasonal and subject to set opening times end of May to mid September.

Short breaks of 2 nights or more are available most of the year except the 5 peak summer holiday weeks.

my wife and i have stayed at the cove , previously in a ground floor Apartment on a different block.and when staying, viewed this particular one, plover 2 at the cove as the one we would like to stay in next time.we booked it last year a week later than we wanted to.booked it for 2 weeks.arrived on the Saturday stated, to a nice cake awaiting.Opened the balcony doors to take in a stunning view of mostly devon and dorset coastline.see for yourself in the telescope on the tripod also check out the star formations at night.This is a lovely modern clean holiday flat in my opinion a little gem.its right on the south coast path if you like walking,in either direction.i am to old for it but alot of holiday makers paddle board in fishcombe cove below and theres a little cafe there to.if your a rugby fan Brixham have a club up Gillard rd a good walk down hill and uphill and vice versa.home.a couple of tips parking your car. good news if yours is small as you can 3 point turn otherwise you need to reverse uphill or downhill.and when making toast put toaster under oven hood fan turn on when using toaster as the kitchen smoke alarm MAY function. Great Place.

Waking up to sea views every morning? What more can one ask? An excellent location, within walking distance of bustling brixham, but far enough away for it to be quiet. Excellent access to very quiet beaches as well. Apartment has everything one needs for a lovely week. Welcoming cake was a bonus.

We really enjoyed our holiday staying in Plover 2. The apartment was really comfortable with beautiful sea views. The walk into Brixham along the coast path was very easy and we enjoyed some walks down to Fishcombe Cove and Churston Cove. All in all a very enjoyable stay!
Fabulous short break.

We’ve just returned from a short break at Plover 2 and our first stay at The Cove. Lovely apartment which despite not being front line, still has amazing views over the block in front. It was scrupulously clean as was the bedding and towels (which smelt lovely) and was so well equipped, there wasn’t anything more that we could have needed. Due to the current climate, we opted to cook and eat in each evening which wasn’t a problem at all as the kitchen had everything we needed, all quality branded products. The WiFi worked well and we were able to sign into our Netflix account on the TV to watch a film when the weather decided to take a turn for the worse. Such a shame we couldn’t make use of the sun beds, BBQ and outside seating on the balcony, fingers crossed next time the weather will be kinder to us. There was a supply of tea, coffee and milk along with a cake left which was a nice touch after the drive down. We did struggle with the entry codes for the pedestrian gate access to the beach and the entrance driveway, defeated us every time?! If I had to be really picky, I would have liked a more comfortable sofa and chairs but that is down to personal preference and certainly wouldn’t stop us returning. Great location, parked the car on arrival and walked everywhere. Short 15 minute walk along the coastal footpath into Brixham, regular bus or ferry service into Torquay. Would have liked to walk the other direction towards Paignton, but as mentioned the weather was against us. We also popped across to the holiday park opposite where there is a shop for a morning paper or an emergency bottle of wine when you run out!
