Our Christmas holiday in the Captains Cottage was perfect. The house is idyllic and full of wow moments, it was exquisitely decorated for Christmas, a lovely surprise. Thank you for all the thought and care you have taken in sharing your home , everything was deeply appreciated.

Clearly a great deal of thought has gone into making this property what it is with every facility to hand. The view from the cottage is mesmerising, one we could never tire of. A most wonderful holiday and although there are many steps down to the harbour the climb back up was well worth it to return to such lovely accommodation.
Beautiful Cottage, amazing views!
Verified Up Front Reviews
One of the nicest cottages we have stayed in around Devon And Cornwall. The quality of everything is to the highest standard, comfortable beds, kitchen fully equipped and beautiful views of the harbour and town from the front room and the bedroom on the top floor. The playroom for the kids is really useful, as is the parking in the garage at the top of the garden. It is a 3 minute walk into Brixham, down very steep steps (all of Brixham is like this). Brixham is a mix of tourist and working town. A few nice restaurants, cafes and tea shops and pubs, but also 2 co-ops and a Tesco for food shopping, ice cream parlour and a little amusement arcade!
Great stY

A brilliant holiday base within walking distance of everything in Brixham. Parking is a big plus and the standard of the accomodation is very high. Comfortable matresses, good quality fittings, and all the extras you would ever need. The best kitted out holiday home we have been to. We would love to come back in 2022 but with prices up 35% next year it would not be sensible value for money for us.
Excellent property for our stay in Brixham.

Everything you might need was thought of and in the cottage. The property and décor was of a high quality. The games room in particular would be ideal for teenagers and the double garage was useful to avoid looking for on street parking. The many steps were to be expected, but could be a problem for some. We had a superb break.
View All


Set in an elevated position in North View Road, with a rear garage accessed from Elkins Hill. It's a 5 minute walk down approx 100 very steep steps to the central harbour area with its many restaurants, cafes, bars and shops. Taxis are plentiful and cheap if you'd rather not walk back up! Brixham is an excellent base for touring the many attractions of Torbay and South Devon including National Trust properties Greenway & Coleton Fishacre, Paignton Zoo and Babbacombe Model village.
