Description from owner


‘Trade winds’ is a charming fisherman’s’ cottage situated in Customs Court, just off the harbour. This area of Brixham was well known for its smugglers hatches and secret routes passing right under the nose of the old Customs Cottages housing the Customs Officers dating back some 300 years!

The cottage is brimming with charm and character including historic sea charts, exposed stone walls and old beams. Trade winds is a very light and bright cottage built over four levels with two double bedrooms, both enjoying superb harbour and sea views.

Trade winds location is excellent; a real crow’s nest perched over Brixham offering an intimate view of the water’s edge, which is literally 50 metres walk away.

Great location, fantastic views and literally the BEST appointed vacation rental we have ever stayed in. Even our dog was upset to leave! Can not recommend highly enough.

“Great Location”

Reviewed 17 Sep 2020

Our first visit to Brixham and not our last. Trade Winds Cottage is comfortable and has everything you need as a home from home. Main bedroom is lovely with a really comfortable king sized bed. Both me and my husband suffer with back issues so always a concern when we travel. Situated over four floors, the stairs can be challenging as quite steep but as expected in a property of this age. Cottage has been renovated sympathetically to maintain character whilst providing comfort and a quirky style. The location is perfect, with wonderful views and two minutes walk from the harbour. Fresh milk, tea and coffee plus fresh scones, jam and clotted cream welcomed us on arrival. Thanks Jo! Brixham itself was lovely, some great walking to be had. We walked to Berry Head which has amazing views across Lyme Bay. The Covid situation was handled well by all restaurants and shops but recommend you book in advance if you want to eat somewhere particular as they are often fully booked for up to 5 days. We were very lucky with the weather and spent a couple of afternoons on the beach and swimming at Shoalstone beach. We didn’t have time to do everything we wanted to so will be back and our accommodation of choice will definitely be Trade Winds. All in all a great few days away. Highly recommend Trade Winds Cottage and a visit to Brixham itself.

“Perfect in every way”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2019

We enjoyed a long weekend at Trade Winds and it was the perfect space for us (2 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 dogs). Being on 3 floors meant that there was space for everyone. The cottage is right in the heart of bustling Brixham, lovely walks in every direction right on your doorstep. The house is spotless, linen and beds extremely comfortable and the master bedroom is really lovely. Thank you for thinking of everything Jo, we wouldn't change anything. Perfect!

Owner's reply: Thank you Erica for your lovely review and for looking after our cottage. We are really glad that you enjoyed your time with us at Trade Winds.
