Description

Two bedroom Cottage nestling in a quiet road a short walk from the vibrant Harbour Bowl area of Brixham and the town centre, Rosemary Cottage is an 18th century Grade 2 listed former fisherman's cottage, with low ceilings and exposed original beams (can you spot the old ship's mast!). A relaxing place to wind down after a busy day, taking some refreshment in the courtyard area, our family feel cottage hints at its nautical past with its low ceilings and decor, yet offers the modern facilities you'd expect. From the pastel washed front of the Cottage, you enter straight into the living room which has a soft airy feel, with sofa and relaxing tub chairs, full HD TV, window seat looking out onto the quiet road, quaint fireplace with log burner effect electric heater and wall lights to create a great space for relaxation. A folding table and chairs can be pulled out for informal dining. Through the door to the modern-equipped kitchen which has a full sized oven and hob, fridge

From the pastel washed front of the Cottage, you enter straight into the living room which has a soft airy feel, with sofa and relaxing tub chairs, full HD TV, window seat looking out onto the quiet road, quaint fireplace with log burner effect electric heater and wall lights to create a great space for relaxation. A folding table and chairs can be pulled out for informal dining. Through the door to the modern-equipped kitchen which has a full sized oven and hob, fridge and small freezer, washing machine, microwave, stainless steel basin and draining board, and the usual equipment for four people. From here a wooden stable door opens out onto the patio and shared courtyard which is a real suntrap, where you can sit at the cafe style table to eat and drink alfresco. Back into the front room you ascend the spiral stairs to the first floor and the well proportioned main double bedroom with its West Country seaside ambiance. The double bed has a comfortable mattress, and the room features the usual bedroom facilities including HD TV, radio alarm clock, hair dryer and cupboards for clothes. There is a window seat for "people watching" in the street below. Across the landing is a modern shower room with large shower area, basin, mirror and large velux window creating a bright and airy space to wash in. Ascending the spiral staircase once more takes you to the second floor with its twin bedroom which has a TV, radio alarm clock, wardrobe and bedside cabinets. From the window seat there are views out over the main harbour and its breakwater, and towards the bay and Torquay, where you can watch the comings and goings of the fishing fleet, or the yachts sailing in the Bay. A small number of books, games, puzzles and DVDs are provided to keep everyone entertained for those "stay at home" evenings. We also provide a travel cot and mattress and a high chair for infants, and a safety gate for doorways or stairs, found underneath the spiral stairs in the lounge. There is also an airer for drying clothes and those towels and swimsuits after a day at the beach! Rosemary Cottage is old and the stairs are steep. Whilst it is family friendly, parents are advised to ensure that children are properly supervised. Parking is free on the surrounding roads, with a small "drop off" area in front of the cottage. There is more parking back into the Town and Breakwater area in large public car parks. Close to the South-west Coastal Footpath and great area for cycling and walking (our guests tell us so!).

Location description from owner

The English Riviera region

The area is known as the English Riviera, and it gets that title due to its mild climate and sun-blessed coastline. Brixham on the southern part of the semi-circular Torbay, is an old fishing town, an activity that is carried on to this day.The fleet supplies fresh fish and shell fish to many parts of Britain, and boasts many well-known restaurants and chefs amongst its clientele. Brixham is a great holiday attraction due to its climate, its narrow old town streets, its independent stores, shops and eating places which offer visitors a wide range of facilities. Nearby is the chic Torquay and the beautiful rolling countryside of South Devon.

Brixham

Rosemary Cottage is in an old part of town, on the southern rim of the harbour. It is part of a conservation area to protect the character of the neighbourhood, and traces its history back 200 years, and stands on the site of earlier dwellings. The area is well protected from the south-westerly winds by the steep cliffs that reach back to Berry Head, and it has views over the harbour and the equally picturesque and old Overgang area of Brixham on the northern rim. Nearby are beaches at the Breakwater (closest) St Mary's (a mile or so away), Fishcombe Cove - a brisk 30 minutes walk away, Broadsands and Goodrington Sands a 20 minute drive.

Getting around

Brixham is easily explored on foot, being only a few minutes away, such that once your car is parked up you won't need it. There are boat trips from the main quay across the Bay to Torquay (about 20 minutes), or round Berry Head to Dartmouth (about 70 minutes). The No 12 bus from the town centre goes round the Bay via Churston, Goodrington and Paignton to Torquay and beyond to Newton Abbott, and runs every 1 minutes. The no 17 bus runs from just near the Cottage to the Town Centre and around Brixham if you need a lift when it is raining. And the No 18 will take you from the Town Centre to Kingswear from where you can take the foot ferry across the River Dart to Dartmouth. To get to Exeter there are half-hourly trains from Paignton.
