Rubbish Deposit £25.00

Torbay council have recently introduced a new rubbish scheme which involves extensive and careful recycling, because of this we have introduced and implemented a system where guests are asked to take their rubbish away with them at the end of their holiday and it can be recycled at your home in the usual manner. The problem we have faced is that all councils across the country have different rules as to what can be recycled and the rules in Torbay often differ from what holiday makers are used to we are then exposed to £1000 fine if it is not recycled correctly. When paying the final instalment of your holiday 4 weeks prior to the holiday an additional deposit of £25.00 will need to be paid which is a (Rubbish deposit) after your holiday if you have removed all of your rubbish the £25.00 is refundable in the manner in which it was paid, i.e cheque or bank transfer.

Damage Deposit of £100 refundable after the stay if no damage is caused.

“A little small but beautiful location.”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2016

Well worth the money, the location was beautiful and it was in a good spot to explore other places. However it was a little dusty in a few spots like next to the double bed.

“Nice cosy cottage, excellent location - was a great base”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2013

I stayed in Anchor Cottage with my girlfriend and son for one week in August 2013. The cottage is cosy, with two good sized bedrooms upstairs, and bathroom, and comfortable living space with kitchen downstairs. Our son liked the bunk beds, and the main bedroom was comfortable. Having Sky and WiFi also helped us keep in touch with the rest of the world. Some people might not want this, but it ticked a box for me. The cottage is off the street, and contained with other neighbours who were friendly and helpful during our stay. The cottage was equally good to use as a base when we had busy days or for a day of relaxation. Cooking and a family meal was easily achievable during our time there. We had a couple of minor issues with the lighting which was resolved when we contacted the owner, and also a problem with a shower leak - but this did not take up too much of our time and we were able to leave them to be repaired whilst out in Brixham. As I said the location is good for both the Lido (which is a must visit), good family beaches (although stony in Brixham!) and the harbour. Parking wasn't always easy as street parking is required at the cottage, so if you do have days out drop the family at the cottage before finding your new parking spot. In August the streets were jam packed. I would recommend the property. It was a great and refreshing getaway. Just what the doctor ordered.

“Wonderful cottage”

Reviewed 15 Apr 2013

The cottage is compact, but this was not an issue, and it was lovely being able to cook (not that I did any) and be able to still be in contact with the family in the living room. There is everything there you could possibly want. The cottage was clean and fully equiped and in a quiet location. I will most certainly be back to stay here and would not heistate to recommend to anyone. I have stayed in Brixham many times and this has to be one of the best holiday lets I have stayed in!

“relaxing short break”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2012

Anchor Cottage, is a very nice, clean, well appointed cottage, from the beams in the celling to the sky TV and WIFI, every thing was just right, very well equipped kitchen, nice jack and jill style bathroom with shower (no bath), plenyt of storage space in the two bedrooms, a really great little cottage. also great communication from the owner, we booked quite late, and she got everything sorted out for us. this cottage is an ideal base for a relaxing break The cottage is nice and local to the harbour and mariner areas of Brixham, Brixham has lots of good fish and chips shops, as well as some nice restaurants. In the harbour you can book boat trips to other areas in Torbay, like Dartmouth and Torquay.

“Home from Home”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2012

We have been going to Anchor Cottage on and off for the last eight years or so as a family with our two children and as a couple and we have never not enjoyed our stay at the cottage or in Brixham. The cottage is very homely, welcoming and comfortable you have all you need there for a relaxing break. The neighbours have always been friendly and welcoming as have the locals. Great for coastal walks, you can walk from Brixham to Torquay and if you time it right you can get the Ferry back to Brixham. On the odd occasion on our walks we have seen the seal that often visits the Bay for the fish. We use the car very little when we are there as there are ferries to most places. Plenty of good restaurants to choose from - all within walking distance of the cottage. Would recomend the cottage and Brixham.

“Restful, but modern, near the local amenities and we[--]re going again”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2012

it was easy to book the cottage online, we received information on location, how to access the cottage, parking areas etc. It is a very well furnished cottage, it has tasteful decor that reflects the style and age of the property. Some thought seems to be given to home entertainment with Televisions and Videos in each room. We only used the car once when went to Torquay for the day. Otherwise we were able to walk to all local amenities. We visited several local events in Brixham including Lunch and Fish demonstrations and the Arts and Crafts market. We ate out at the Berry Head hotel and the Breakwater Bistro which we enjoyed, we enjoyed the walks around both sides of the bay and the boat trip to Dartmouth. We enjoyed it very much and we have booked to go again

“Perfect”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2012

My husband and I visited Anchor Cottage for a long weekend getaway break. I could not have felt more relaxed, the cottage was very quaint and furnished to a very high standard by the owners Melanie & Karl making it very comfortable and cosy. There was not a kitchen utensil they did not have, they have ensured that you could not possibly want for anything during your stay. The cottage is in walking distance to the bars and shops, the harbour is also a short walk for those nice evening strolls (weather permitting) All in all we could not have wished for a better weekend and will definitely be returning to Anchor Cottage next year.

“Fantastic Cottage - Home from Home”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2012

Anchor Cottage in Brixham is perfectly located just near the harbour, the cottage is itself is thoroughly modern inside with what looked like a new shower room tastefully done and very modern, the cottage has a high speed broadband link and Sky, so we missed for nothing as a family.

“Very Clean well equipped cottage”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2011

Only downside was the positioning as it doesn't get a lot of natural light therefore quite dark inside. Neighbours not very dog friendly so could cause difficulty in shared courtyard. Very clean and exceptionally well equiped with all you need for self catering, all mod cons. We positioned away from town centre but within easy access. We enjoyed our stay here.
