Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 11
'Harbour Reach' is situated at the end of a row of seafarers cottages which were originally built so that the captains of the fishing trawlers could keep an eye on their boats in the harbour below. The views from the front windows are spectacular, taking in the town, the picturesque harbour filled with a variety of commercial fishing boats and the Marina with its yachts, cruisers and lifeboats. Then the view extends across Torbay and out to sea.
'Harbour Reach' is just a few minutes walk from the town centre, the beaches and the harbour and is an excellent base for so many places of interest, coastal footpaths and numerous activities.
A real 'home from home', Harbour Reach is so comfortable, clean and well equipped. It has gas central heating, double glazing and is carpeted and furnished to a very high standard.

The West Country region
Torbay is famous for its mild climate and frequently goes by the name of the 'English Riviera'. This makes it the ideal place to take a holiday at any time of year. Brixham has been a charming and picturesque fishing port for centuries, this story is told so well in Brixhams Heritage Museum. It was in Brixham harbour that Prince William of Orange landed in 1688 before marching to London to be crowned King William III. In the harbour today there is a replica of Sir Francis Drake's famous ship the Golden Hind, which is open for the public to go aboard.
Brixham has many attractive winding , narrow streets with colourful cottages, a wide selection of shops, an art gallery, craft shops and numerous cafes, restaurants, pubs and churches. There is a very popular open-air, sea water swimming pool surrounded by a shingle and rock beach which is excellent for rock-pooling. Brixhams other beaches are a mixture of sand, shingle and large pebble. Nearby are the beautiful sandy beaches of Broadsands, Goodrington and Paignton all of which are very clean and safe for swimming.
Close to Brixham is Paignton Zoo with its many exotic and endangered species, the new 'Living Coasts' attraction at Torquay, Kents Cavern prehistoric caves, Babbacombe Model Village and Quaywest Waterpark at Goodrington Sands which has the highest and fastest flume in the country. Other attractions in the area include water sports, quad bikes, go-kart racing, cycling, golf, tennis, horse riding, fishing, and adventure parks.
