  • “Location of the property is excellent, just behind the main street.”

    The road to the property is VERY narrow so if you have a big car like us be careful. The property is on 3 levels with the kitchen on the ground floor with the dining room. Bedrooms on the top floor have fantastic views across the harbour and are comfortable. ...

    The road to the property is VERY narrow so if you have a big car like us be careful. The property is on 3 levels with the kitchen on the ground floor with the dining room. Bedrooms on the top floor have fantastic views across the harbour and are comfortable. The main issue we would say would be some parts of the cottage need updating or a very deep clean. The sofas are dirty, the heated towel rail in the bathroom is badly rusted at the bottom and the floor needs re-grouting as there are a lot of loose tiles. Window frames around the property were full of cobwebs and grime. Dining room on the ground floor needs laminate flooring not carpet, and needs brightening up as it’s a small area with very dark furniture in it. Kitchen is small but more than adequate with new cupboards and appliances which is a plus. The furniture on the balcony is old and rusted so we didn’t use it which is a shame as it would be a superb place to sit on an evening and relax watching the boats come and go. Overall, this property could be so much better given some attention and thought. Location 10/10, cleanliness 3/10.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback following your recent stay at Blue Horizon. We've spoken with the owner who has asked us to cover the points mentioned in order to help yourselves and reassure future guests. We always carry out an annual post season clean of our sofas, carpets and soft furnishings and aim to that very shortly following a very busy season. We also plan to replace the heated towel rail and the garden furniture.We investigated your mention of loose tiles and were unable to find any loose floor tiles. Window frames were cleaned at the end of July. We made the decision to lay carpet in the dining room mainly for the warmth this can offer and have no plans to change this at present. Despite the points raised we are pleased you enjoyed the fantastic location of our property. Owner relations

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. The prettiest part of Brixham has small cottages in hilly narrow winding lanes leading to the harbour where all the activity is centred. 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. There are a host of safe cycle trails in the area, the South West Coastal Path and some of the best golf courses in the region. A good mix of relaxation or action, to suit all ages, where you are never far from the sea.
