About this location
The English Riviera region
Brixham is located on the southern side of Torbay. It is sheltered from the prevailing westerly winds and enjoys year round mild weather and high levels of sunshine. The immediate countryside on either side of Brixham is outstandingly beautiful and is managed by the Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust. The demanding eight mile walk along a section of the South West Coastal path passes spectacular yet isolated and unspoilt beaches, cliffs and rocky coves on its way to Kingswear and the mouth of the River Dart.
To the south of Brixham lies the countryside of the South Hams. Countless hamlets and villages lying within a maze of country lanes and beautiful esturies. Slapton is an important wildlife and bird watching area. There are also argueably some of the best beaches in the country at Blackpool Sands, East Portlemouth and Bigbury/Burgh Island. The National Trust manages much of the countryside and important historical buildings in the South Hams. Coleton Fishacre house and gardens, a few miles from Brixham, are particularly worthly of a visit.
The interior of South Devon is dominated by Dartmoor, an unmistakable landscape of granite tors on barron hilltops, stone circles, abandoned mine workings and quiet wooded valleys. This National Park offers fantastic opportunities for walkers throughout the year.
Brixham is a picturesque town set in an outstanding coastline. It has a thriving fishing port which is complemented by the marina of yachts and cruisers. It has an historic old harbour which, not surprisingly, is overlooked by a number of good fish restaurants. During the summer period pasenger boats can be taken to Torquay, Dartmouth, the River Dart and for fishing trips. The town also has a heritage fleet of sailling trawlers. "The Vigilance" is available for sailling trips. The Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway and the Buckfastleigh to Totnes Steam Railway must be amongst the most outstanding steam railways journeys in the country.
Brixham has a large sea water swimming pool and two good swimming beaches. The area is also extremely popular with scuba divers and snorkellers. The South West Coastal footpath which passes through the town offers great coastal walks in either direction. The Berry Head Country Park, a site of special scientific interest, occupies an elevated limestone plateau just outside of the town.
