Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
Rockend is a modern ground floor apartment situated in a traditional cottage in the pretty fishing town of Brixham.
Internally, the apartment offers a light and airy open plan living, kitchen and dining area that has been stylishly furnished to a high standard throughout. Externally, the property benefits from a courtyard garden that can be accessed from both bedrooms.
The Brixham harbourside is a short walk away and is flanked by a selection of family run restaurants offering fresh fish and the finest of local produce. For a more casual sample of the local catch, head to one of the harbourside shops offering oysters and fresh shellfish, or for the less adventurous, a hearty portion of fish and chips.
From the harbour, a short walk along the coastal path leads to a selection of beaches and coves, as well as the ever popular seawater swimming pool at Shoalstone. Torquay is within easy and is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the South West and exudes a fantastic cosmopolitan buzz. Dotted around the harbour there are plenty of bars and cafes where you can sit and simply watch the world go by.
Those looking to entertain the family should head to Paignton, home to a fine selection of attractions including Paignton Zoo, the UK's 3rd largest zoo; the Paignton to Dartmouth Steam Railway and Quaywest waterpark.
Please note this property operates a Sunday changeover during July and August.

The West Country region
The warm climate and award-winning beaches enjoyed by South Devon have kept it a fashionable holiday resort for many generations. Torquay, Paignton and Brixham make up Torbay, one of the most popular areas for holidays in South Devon, and the area also includes the coastal towns of Dawlish, Teignmouth and Starcross. South Devon holiday cottages position their guests in some of the country's prettiest locations for a break with a continental feel. South Devon hosts dozens of festivals and regattas throughout the whole year. One of the world's oldest shipwrecks was found off South Devon's coast. Pete Goss built his Team Phillips catamaran in Totnes.
A cosy coastal town with beautiful views and rambling countryside, Brixham can be found at the south end of the English Riviera. A busy fishing port with a fascinating history, including the inspiration for world famous hymns and being the landing place of William Prince of Orange, this picturesque corner of Devon is a delight to explore. From the bustling harbour filled with trawlers and yachts, to the tranquil nature reserve at Berry Head, there is plenty to enjoy during your stay.
Restaurants, pubs, bistros and cafes line the harbour along with colourful cottages, whilst families can enjoy the many attractions in the region. The coastline is interspersed with coves such as Churston, Fishcombe and St. Mary's Bay if you are looking for a quieter beach, while Breakwater beach has parking, a lifeguard in the summer and the Breakwater Bistro serving meals and takeaway food.
