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.

A flight of stone steps bring you to the front patio and entrance of the cottage, where immediately you will appreciate the super views afforded from this sweet and welcoming seaside cottage.

About the location


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. 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.

Note: No children under 5 yrs except babes in arms. Note: May not be suitable for guests with limited mobility. Note: Parking 2m wide, unsuitable for low slung cars. Note: Due to limited turning space in the cul-de-sac we recommend reversing down the narrow road to drive into the parking space.

Note: The steps from the road to the cottage are very steep and internally there are two further flights of normal stairs between the dining room and sitting room and the sitting room and the bedroom. Brixham itself has many flights of steps throughout the town.
