Reviews

    • “We loved the location with the dual aspect bedroom windows and we enjoyed using the balcony for our breakfasts. Brixham is a good base for touring the area. There are just two negatives that I think would be useful feedback - there was no welcome pack and if that had been explained we would have prepared for it. Also we think blackout curtains would be helpful as the bedroom was too light in the early mornings. We would highly recommend Blue Horizon.”

    • “This is one of the best holiday rentals we have stayed in.The pictures do not do the property justice.The views are stunning, the property was extremely clean and the specification was as listed.The comfort of the beds was outstanding and every aspect apears to be thought of (shoehorne,torch,hairdryer, games...I could go on).Yes if you have mobility issues it may not be the place for you because of the stairs but this is Brixham and it's par for the course.My family of 4, including 2 teenagers loved it and we're missing it already!”

    Mrs Preston, Bedford, August 2018

    • “Our family really enjoyed the holiday. The cottage had some great views over the harbour and the location was good. The steps leading up to the cottage may not be suitable for those with mobility problems, but for our family there was no issue. Brixham is lovely and we would return. The good weather was a bonus!”

    Mrs Hampshire, Worksop, August 2018

    • “Lovely cottage and views. Good size bed, quality bed linen. Lots of steps (80) down to harbour and 20 within house.”

    Quayle, King's Lynn, July 2018

    • “a beautiful place to stay, just the hum of the fishery but soon got used to it, it would keep you fit if you stayed there long enough”

    Mr Ainge, Melton Mowbray, June 2018

    • “Lovely cottage,excellent location overlooking the harbour with superb views. Very comfortable facilities and beds! Stairs may be a problem for people with mobility issues.Parking was also a problem having to reverse down a very narrow lane. However we did find somewhere to park in the roads nearby. Some problems with the electrics but these were sorted by the owner. Not sure where the garden was=just a tiny patio! Some people may not appreciate all the steps up to the property but not a problem for us. Would recommend this cottage for its character ,location and beautiful views=always something going on in the harbour!”

    Mr Price, Hereford, April 2018

    • “We all had a fantastic time in Brixham the cottage was brilliant in all aspects, great location with fantastic views of the harbour. Would not hesitate to return and stay in this cottage.”

The Property

Occupying an elevated position this character fisherman's cottage, boasts captivating views over the harbour and Lyme Bay. Situated in the popular South Devon coastal town of Brixham, Blue Horizon is less than a five minute stroll down hill to the shops, cafes and restaurants that line the cobbled streets and harbour of this historic maritime town. Steeped in history this famous fishing port is still active with daily catches being landed daily and served fresh in the variety of restaurants and cafes of this charming town. A popular tourist attraction is a replica of Sir Francis Drake's ship The Golden Hind a reminder of the town's history and heritage. A stroll around past the modern marina will take you to Berry Head, a limestone peninsula and National Nature Reserve that rises sixty five meters from the sea and holds rare plant and animal species.
A destination popular with both families and couples, there is much to do and see for any age group. Family friendly beaches are on the doorstep with day trips on the Dartmouth Steam Railway a must for all. Visit Living Coasts and Paignton Environmental Zoo are less than 5 miles away. Walkers will enjoy the Torbay stretch of coastal footpath, and if you prefer water to land, fishing trips, boats, pedaloes and canoes can all be hired locally.

BRIXHAM Dartmouth 5 miles; Paignton 6 miles; Torquay 8 miles. Brixham is a working fishing harbour located on the southern side of Torbay, the area known as The English Riviera, famed for its sunny mild climate all year round. The focal point of the harbour is a life size replica of The Golden Hind, Sir Francis Drake’s ship.

Home to Britain’s largest fishing fleet which regularly lands their catch in the harbour, Brixham fish market sells to major restaurants in the UK. Brixham is the ideal destination for a traditional holiday with many family attractions around Torbay including two Blue Flag beaches, Paignton Zoo and many regattas and maritime events throughout the year.
