For a change of scenery, why not unwind in the enclosed terraced garden, which is bordered with plants and offers fantastic views over Brixham towards Dartmoor? You can sit and listen to the sound of the steam train whistle as it leaves for Dartmouth. The back garden gate leads directly to the South West Coastal Path, ideal for walkers, where you can access the sandy beach of St Mary's Bay via some stone steps. There is a local Spar shop within a five-minute walk for all your daily needs and papers. Shoalstone indoor swimming pool is within easy walking distance, and it is only a short drive to the seawater pool at Shoalstone Beach.

Brixham Harbour is famed for its fresh fish market, where you can see the trawlers unload their daily catch and you can buy some fresh fish for your supper. You can also take the ferry from the harbour to Torquay or book a fishing trip. There are many local pubs and restaurants all around the harbour serving great food and of course the locally caught fresh fish. For something different take the round trip on the steam train to Dartmouth with a boat trip, which sails up the River Dart past Dittisham and Stoke Gabriel and into the market town of Totnes. Or take the car ferry over to Dartmouth and visit the local shops, try the fish and chips, and take a trip along the River Dart and see Agatha Christie's former house as you sail by. A fabulous getaway not to be missed.
