Brixham Cottages

Brixham is a working fishing town on the South Devon coast that homes a very artistic, friendly community and is an ever-popular holiday destination. Our holiday cottages in Brixham come in all shapes and sizes and cater for a range of holiday needs. Whether you’re looking for a bijou luxury home, or you fancy a digital detox break in an old stone cottage that’s a little closer to the South Devon countryside. Our cottages sleep anywhere between two guests and upwards of eight, meaning that you can bring as many (or as few) friends and loved ones along. We also have lots of dog-friendly homes to bring your puppy pal along with you on your Brixham adventure.  

Things to Do  

There is never a dull moment in Brixham. With a thriving arts scene, the town is abuzz with creatives, who you will see painting and crafting at Artist’s Corner on The Strand. There are lots of little galleries around Brixham and independently run shops where you can pick up a souvenir of your stay. 

There are also a number of museums and attractions around Brixham, including the replica of The Golden Hind, Sir Francis Drake’s famous ship. The ship is docked at Brixham Quay and has five decks full of artefacts and exhibitions that are particularly targeted at children, although we’re sure everyone will enjoy a stepping aboard the Hind.  

Berry Head National Nature Reserve in Brixham is also an absolute must see, particularly for nature lovers. Sitting at the edge of South Devon’s UNESCO World Geopark site, Berry Head is home to a rare and diverse network of flora and fauna that is simply captivating. With incredible views out to sea, Berry Head is the perfect destination while walking along the South West Coast Path. In the country park next to the reserve there is a lovely little cafe overlooking Berry Head, as well as a visitor centre where you can learn all about the endangered and rare species that live here. Dogs are also welcome in the cafe and around the reserve, but must be kept on leads. 

Beaches  

Being on the coast, Brixham is surrounded by a range of gorgeous South Devonshire beaches and coves, ranging from large, sandy family favourites, to secret little bays. Breakwater Beach is the closest to Brixham Harbour and has been awarded Blue Flag status, meaning that it is very clean and has safe bathing waters. The sea here is popular with scuba divers, swimmers and paddlers alike and beneath the waves you’ll be able to spot crabs, fish, seagrass and even seahorses! The beach is well facilitated and has good disabled access, parking and public toilets. 

Broadsands Beach another of the main beaches in Brixham and is very large, flat and sandy. Broadsands has a row of cut little beach huts and a pitch and put nearby, making it the perfect location for a family-friendly day out, and it is also great place for paddling and swimming.    

St Mary’s Bay is another popular beach near Brixham. With a sand and shingle shore, the bay is ideal for catching some rays and dipping your toes in the sea. The bay can be accessed via the coast path from Berry Head, so may be a good additional spot to visit during your trip to the nature reserve. The walk down to St Mary’s Bay is, however, a little steep, so may not be suitable for children or those who are less able to walk.  

Another beauty spot is Churlston Cove. Surrounded by thick trees, sloping cliffs and crystal clear waters, Churlston Cove will transport you to a whole new world and make you feel totally at peace. Dogs are also allowed all year round on the beach, so it’s the perfect spot for those on a dog friendly holiday.  

Places to Eat 

Being a working fishing port, Brixham has become synonymous with seafood. In and around the harbour are a number of award-winning seafood and fish restaurants that will be a treat to anyone who visits. Rockfish on the harbour offers the best of both worlds when it comes to seaside dining, with a traditional chippy downstairs and an elegant fine dining fish restaurant up top. Beamers is another fabulous seafood restaurant that prides itself on the shortest of sea to plate journeys by collecting produce from the fish market the same morning you are set to dine.  

But it’s not just seafood on offer in Brixham and if you’re veggie or vegan you’ll be catered for too. The Curious Kitchen has an amazing range of sweat treats and lunch options, but the breakfast menu is the best for meat free dining and has some mouth-watering choices. Verna’s Pepper Shack serves up a delicious array of Caribbean food, with options catering for vegetarians and vegans.  

Crammed with cafes, chippies, restaurants and pubs, perhaps the best way to choose where to eat in Brixham is simply to walk along and pick whichever looks and smells the best to you, as you’ll certainly never go hungry in this foodie town.
