Property Details

Perfectly positioned within the vibrant harbour town of Brixham, is the gorgeous terraced cottage, The Tern. Newly available to the market and following a complete refurbishment, this old Fisherman's cottage is located in the Harbour Bowl. Access to the town is via a series of steep steps. Surrounded by the vast coastline and picture-perfect scenery, this idyllic dwelling is a wonderful choice for your next family or group getaway to Devon.

Open up the pretty blue door and be welcomed into the warmth of the inviting sitting/dining room, perfect for unwinding by the woodburning stove on one of the plush three-seater sofas and enjoying an entertaining movie with the help of the Smart TV with DVD player. Grab one of the many books that line the shelves and snuggle up in the lovely bay window seat, or gather at the dining table with your nearest and dearest as you begin to plan out action-packed adventures exploring the coast. Take to the galley kitchen that has been kitted out with all the essential appliances for a stress-free self-catering stay, and grab ingredients from the spacious fridge/freezer as you prepare a delicious family feast with the help of the ceramic hob and electric oven.

Step out through the patio door and climb the steep stone steps that lead up to the first-floor garden, ideal for basking in the sunshine on those warm summer evenings, as you delight in dinner and drinks alfresco-style.

On the first floor, you will discover a charming family bathroom, where you can indulge in a relaxing soak in the tub or a rejuvenating rinse with the handy overhead shower. The first floor is also home to two beautifully appointed bedrooms consisting of a restful king-size with a plethora of storage, and a peaceful twin bedroom, due to the room dimensions this is best configured as a twin layout but can be transformed to a king-size to offer flexible sleeping arrangements for guests.

Kick-start your mornings with a brisk walk down to the harbour to see the Golden Hind Museum Ship, and continuing onto Brixham Breakwater. Embrace the salty sea air and breath-taking setting as you embark on an awe-inspiring hike through the Berry Head National Nature Reserve before setting off along the imposing clifftops of the South West Coast Path to St Mary's Bay and Brownstone Battery. Cross the River Dart to Dartmouth and spend the day at the 14th century Dartmouth Castle and the Tudor fortress of Bayard's Cove Fort.

Those travelling with small children will relish days out to the Woodlands Family Theme Park and Splashdown Quaywest Waterpark, as well as the nearby Paignton Zoo Environmental Park. The luscious landscapes of Dartmoor National Park sit within easy touring distance and are filled with spectacular hiking routes with striking landmarks such as Ditsworthy Warren House and the Merrivale Prehistoric Settlement, together providing a great day out for the whole family.

With so much adventure right on your doorstep, The Tern makes a fabulous base from which to explore the very best that Devon has to offer.

Area Details


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.
