There is easy access to the coastal footpath, but you may decide just to sit back and enjoy the scenery. Brixham is a bustling, interesting town and with this bird’s eye view you can watch the activities of the boats on the water below. Fresh fish is landed on the quay, or if you don’t feel like cooking, there are many restaurants to choose from in Brixham. Shoalstone outdoor salt water pool, an art deco icon, is a mere 300 yards away.

Brixham is a popular destination with walkers, daytrippers, fishermen, rock climbers, naturalists and historians, making it one of Torbay’s top ten most visited attractions. Take a ferry to Torquay with its bustling shops, bistros, cafés, or a boat trip to maritime Dartmouth, where you can ride on the Dartmouth steam railway or leisurely cruise along the River Dart. Visit Agatha Christie’s Greenway House and Dartmoor with its tours and quaint villages. Fine golf courses are a short drive. Beach 300 yards. Shop 300 yards, pub 200 yards and restaurant ¼ mile.

Excellent cottage in a perfect position
Verified Up Front Reviews
Driftwood cottage was perfect for our family break. The accommodation works well and the views from the first floor windows were superb. Shops, beach, harbour and restaurants all very close.
The view
Verified Up Front Reviews
The view is quite spectacular - made even more perfect by a colony of seals playing directly opposite. We had a wonderful Christmas break together - the house was so comfortable and beautifully positioned to walk from the door. The team had also left us Christmas decorations and treats and a very well equipped kitchen meant Christmas dinner went smoothly. Do not follow satnav but use the company’s directions which stay on the (slightly) wider streets.Garage is very small (didn’t fit a Golf) and on street parking a little tricky - but that view makes up for everything!
A lovely week at Driftwood
Verified Up Front Reviews
Just back from a great week at Driftwood, 4 adults and our mini dachshund, Mustard. The property has amazing views over the harbour and sea. Brixham is notorious for steps due to the steep sides around the bay, so we expected the climb up and down each day and it wasn’t really any problem. As for parking the Ford Puma fitted in the garage with no problem too. We would recommend Driftwood as a place to stay and using Brixham Holidays this being our second property using these holiday letting experts.
Perfect for family summer holiday
Verified Up Front Reviews
Driftwood is a superb house and must be one of the best situated in the town, with amazing panoramic views across the bay. The 3-storey layout worked really well to give everyone some space to themselves throughout our week's stay, but also with a lovely open plan kitchen/diner/living room for spending time together. Brixham Holiday Homes have a very professional operation, excellent communication, reassuring in respect of deposits, payments and guarantees, and made the whole process from initial booking to final check-out very smooth.
Highly recommended
Verified Up Front Reviews
A lovely property with the most stunning views from upper and lower terraces; if you didn’t want to go out any day, you could just sit and watch life unfolding in front of you. A comfortable house, with plenty of space for family groups (ours also rented the house next door so there were 12 of us gathered at times). Well furnished, with paintings and ornaments, so not austere as some rental properties can be. Be prepared to increase your fitness levels, there are steep steps to climb to get back up from the town. Some wonderful walks, along the coastal path or out on the breakwater. We tried several restaurants and can particularly recommend Casa Nostra and Rockfish. The town has enough shops and galleries to be interesting without being overrun. All hospitality and retail staff were welcoming and friendly. A special mention to Brixham Holidays Ltd who went above and beyond to ensure that we had a special week. They were always friendly, very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We felt that they really cared that we would have a great holiday. The guide that they produce annually and email with your booking proved invaluable too.
