This property is located just to the west of Brixham town centre and enjoys direct access to the coastal path running alongside Berryhead nature reserve. A few minutes from the town’s Shoalstone beach, it makes a wonderful place for beach-lovers, keen swimmers, and walkers to enjoy a relaxing break. The shingle beach at Shoalstone boasts a 53-metre saltwater lido, providing safe swimming whatever the tidal conditions. Just a few more minutes’ walk around the coast will bring visitors to the town’s busy harbour, where they may wish to take a pleasure boat cruise, join a fishing trip, or take the ferry across to the neighbouring resort of Torquay.
At the heart of this seafront period cottage is the spacious lounge/diner, an inviting space with glorious sea views which can be enjoyed from the sofas and armchairs, as well as the dining table. There is a TV here too, with a SkyTV package. The kitchen, located off the lounge, is contemporarily styled and is equipped with an oven, hob, fridge, microwave, and dishwasher, whilst the fridge/freezer and washing machine are housed nearby in a separate utility room. A second lounge in the form of a snug room can also be found on the ground floor, and with its TV and sofa bed, it makes a great space for teenagers or two additional guests. The downstairs shower room with WC is particularly handy if this room is being used as a bedroom. On the first floor of the property, guests will find two of the property’s three bedrooms: a twin room and a double room with sea views, as well as a bathroom with a bath and WC. The master bedroom suite, which enjoys wonderful sea views, is located for maximum privacy on the second floor of the house, with its double bed and en-suite shower room offering a walk-in shower and WC.
Outside, to the rear of the property, there is a fantastic enclosed garden which is mainly set to lawn and offers plenty of space to relax and listen to the waves crashing, as the coast path lies just beyond the gate at the bottom of the garden. There is off-road parking available for two cars.

Brixham is a beautiful harbourside town on the South Devon coast on the English Riviera. Brixham has a rich maritime history and a full-size replica of the Golden Hind can be found in the Inner Harbour. A short walk further on takes you to the Brixham Battery Heritage Centre with magnificent panoramic views across the bay or find out more at the Brixham Heritage Museum.
There are regular ferry trips to Paignton and Torquay or you can book a wildlife sea-fari or a fishing trip. The area is great for learning to sail which can be done at the Torbay Sea School or crew the 78-foot heritage sailing ketch for a morning, afternoon or evening sailing trip. There are a number of festivals throughout the year including the popular Pirate Festival which attracts thousands of visitors. For relaxation, it is hard to beat Breakwater Beach, an award-winning Blue Flag beach close to the mouth of the harbour.
