A spacious bay fronted Grade II listed cottage in this delightful area of Brixham and within walking distance of the sandy beach at St Mary's Bay and a short stroll to shops and pub.

This delightful Grade II listed cottage is located in the centre of St Mary’s, Brixham, known for its beautiful colourful cottages which house a plethora of seafood restaurants, shops and cafes. Locals and guests love to try their hand at crabbing on the unspoilt sandy beach at St Mary’s Bay just 1.5 miles away but watch those fingers as those critters can pinch! The property has space for up to four guests as well as one friendly dog who will love all of the fabulous dog-friendly attractions in the area.

The property is approached via three shallow steps from street level, entering into the roomy ground-floor level lounge. This is a perfect space for relaxing, watching TV or a movie while snuggling up with the family, both human and furry. A wood burner adds to the cosy effect. The galley-style kitchen is decorated in neutral tones with an easy to maintain floor for spills and muddy paws. Upstairs are two tasteful bedrooms, one double, one double (twin on request).
While people watching and ambling around Brixham is nice, you can always travel further afield by taking the foot ferry to Torquay or Paignton. The latter is a great place for kids, thanks to its world-renowned zoo just 5 miles away from your holiday cottage. Sandy beaches are ideal for the doggies, but for a change of scenery and speed the whole family will appreciate the Steam Railway at Kingswear (5 miles). From here you can take the ferry over to Dartmouth, the only settlement from the area named in the Domesday Book. Medieval properties from the 1600s line the Dartmouth streets and boat cruises operate daily.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 2 bedrooms
  • 1 double

Great little cottage in an ideal spot for walking to and from the beautiful quaint harbour , we would definitely recommend booking restaurants as in busy times you cant get in the good places . Rockfish and The Cowshed were fantastic ! We went to Fishcombe cove , now this was so lovely, tasty burgers and sat on the beach until late. We also went toRead more Teignmouth, Paignton , Dartmouth and Salcombe , absolutely lovely . Hide

Lovely cottage in convenient location for Brixham. Chinese restaurant at the end of the road recommended. Spar Shop 2 min walk, very useful. Plenty to do in surrounding area. Recommend Broadsands Beach and the Paignton-Dartmouth steam train.

A lovely cottage about a twenty minute walk to the harbour which is the main focus of the area. Having it's own parking bay is a huge bonus. Separate dining area from the living room so plenty of room to spread out. Good broadband and dog friendly. We took our dog everywhere. The area is so welcoming we were able to achieve all that we planned withRead more our cockapoo. Paddling, boat rides, cafes and restaurants etc. Lovely week spent here. Hide

We had a lovely time at Horsepool Cottage, beautifully decorated and the garden was a lovely sun trap. The local Spa was very handy, if you like walking then the walk to Brixham is fine but is uphill coming back, there was a playing field near the church which was excellent for dog walking and our dog had a lovely time meeting lots of new friends.

The property was very nice, comfortable, warm and homely. It was about a 15-20 mins walk to the town/harbour. There were pubs a spar, Indian and Chinese takeaways close by. It was a bonus having the parking space.
