Description from owner


Upper Cottage is set in the heart of Brixham 2 Mins easy walk to the harbour and town shops with stunning views of this lovely coastal town. Your tariff will include towels and bedlinen---beds will be made up ready for you and tariff includes all gas electric and broadband internet also dedicated parking nearby

Upper Cottage is conveniently situated just a stones throw from the

harbour on the level of the shops close to the town centre, ideal for shops restaurants pubs and harbour without the need to climb up and down the hillside steps of Brixham unless you wish too.

There is no need for a car as the buses to all local resorts leave from the square just a few steps from the property. (we take advantage of our free bus passes to tour the area)

There are foot ferry's to Dartmouth Torquay and Paignton from the


We have 2 double bedrooms and one single with 1 full size single and 1 smaller single suitable for child or small person.

We have lovingly restored our 17th century cottage retaining its

original features. A stone fireplace, exposed beams and original cast

iron fireplaces.

We have furnished our holiday home with comfort in mind with a really

comfy suite in the spacious lounge where there is a 42 inch tv and

blue ray player dvd and all mod cons in the dining kitchen including a


With a bathroom on both floors it is ideal to share with another couple.

The south facing sunny balcony off the lounge has panoramic views of

this delightful harbour town, lovely for relaxing with a drink and

'people watching'.

The cottage comprises of first and second floor

accommodation above a chocolate shop called chocella, and is

accessed from the street by its own front door.

From the kitchen at the rear of the property, there is

a beautiful suntrap walled patio garden and barbecue area, with

quality garden furniture.The sun stays all day in the garden and till

late evening in the summer.

Great for winter breaks, you wont be chilly with our easy to use gas

central heating throughout just turn up

the thermostat in the lounge and on it comes---and a feature electric

coal effect fire in the stone fireplace to make it really cosy.

Cliff walks and dog friendly beaches are only a few minutes walk from

the harbour.

Upper Cottage offers you a lovely home base for you and your family to

spend time together and to to enjoy this beautiful area.

The cottage has its own dedicated parking space in the harbour

. The parking space is only a short distance away from the property, a 5 min

easy walk for me more than likely less for you!!

A word about safety---the cottage has smoke and carbon dioxide detectors

on both floors, gas and electrical certificates and conforms to fire regs.

Great place for walkers, close to coastal path to Berry Head or Fishcombe cove and you can catch the bus back to the square just a few steps from the cottage. Evenings explore the bars and restaurants and then at the end of the evening its just a few easy steps back to the comfort of home without any hills to climb.

Interaction with guest

We are a retired couple and live in the midlands We get down to Brixham every few weeks and enjoy the cottage because it is great not to have to use the car..We are on and off the buses with our free pass and love the fact that we can go exploring the town and then nip back home for a rest and a cuppa--its so convenient for everything. Sally and Adam our care takers do a fantastic job of looking after the cottage for us. They live locally in the town and although they will respect your privacy they are on hand if you do have any problems. We want you to have the best holiday ever and we all try our best to make your stay a happy one.

Very Good

“Wet weekend!!!”

Reviewed 10 Oct 2020

Don’t panic that was only the weather - thankfully Upper Cottage has everything you could need and was warm and cosy into the bargain. A few minutes walk from Brixham Harbour centre so it was lovely and central for shops, pubs, walks and the beach. We enjoyed our weekend, despite the rain - a nice Walk by the sea, a pint in the pub and then a Chinese takeaway back at the cosy cottage - what more do you need. Thanks for sharing your quirky cottage, Rosalie.

“Home from home”

Reviewed 12 Jun 2019

We both really loved staying at Upper Cottage. Very close to the harbour too. The beds are really comfy and everywhere is really clean. Its a very quaint old cottage with lots of charm. Every thing that you could possibly need is in the house. Its very warm as well, with lots of hot water and good showers. The only thing i would mention is there are lots of stairs. One flight as soon as you get through the front door up into the house. One staircase to the upstairs bedrooms plus one steep one to the outside courtyard patio area which is off the kitchen. So if you have mobility problems you should bear this in mind. Would not hesitate to return again and would recommend it to anyone.
