This remarkable property, which is situated close to Brixham’s town centre, has been fitted and furnished to a delightful standard throughout, offering the perfect bolthole for a family retreat.

Set on a quiet residential road, this charming holiday property enjoys an enviable location near shops, pubs, and the fishing harbour of Brixham in South Devon on the English Riviera. With Saxon roots, a fascinating history of pirates, smugglers and wreckers, and a Dutch influence, there's much to explore along the shores of this charming port town, and festivals to enjoy, including the annual pirate festival in May.

Take steps up to the entrance of this property, into the bright open-plan living, kitchen and dining space. Unwind on the cosy seating by the SmartTV, have fun in the fantastic games room, or gather in the dining area and enjoy the warming wood burner as you tuck into a family feast prepared in the well-equipped kitchen (note steps between the kitchen and dining area). Step out from the kitchen to enjoy the enclosed outside patio - with steps up to a lofty terraced area and a seasonal BBQ. As night falls, you'll find three cosy bedrooms and a family bathroom with a free-standing roll-top bath, separate shower, and WC on the first floor, and a triple bedroom (accessed by cottage-style stairs) on the second floor, where there are some sloped ceilings.

Admire the fishing cottages in Brixham Harbour, finding delicious cafe treats, and source freshly-caught fish at Brixham Fish Market. Discover artefacts and family fun at Brixham Heritage Centre and see The Golden Hind, a replica of Frances Drake's ship in the harbour. Amble along Berry Head (1.5 miles) for cliff-top walks, a charming lighthouse, and abundant wildlife. Take a 30-minute ferry from Brixham to explore the charms of Torquay, or visit Paignton (5.5 miles) and board the Dartmouth Steam Railway which chugs along the coast and the charming River Dart.

We enjoyed our stay at the Pilot House very much and was well suited for 8 guests. Also having the parking for one of the cars was a plus. The central heating worked very well and the log fire was a bonus. Would certainly book again with a party of 8.

The cottage was comfortable and well located for all things Brixham. The garage was much appreciated if not a little snug for my car. The shower was wonderful. My only negative comment is the oven trays need replacing and freezer cleaned.

Really enjoyed our stay. Its a lovely home, clean, with all the facilities you need. Very spacious for all our family. The large garage was ideal as parking spaces outside were very limited. We actually fit two cars in the garage with a bit of manoeuvring. I would recommend this property and would stay here again.
