This ex railway workers cottage has been purpose fitted and furnished to provide a comfortable couples retreat close to the coast, and is ideally situated for exploring the whole of South Devon.

This charming historic home is the ideal seaside getaway for couples and their canine companions seeking a beautifully appointed base from which to explore Brixham and the surrounding area. Wander to the picturesque harbour to feast on fish and chips watching the boats bobbing on the water, stop in one of the dog-friendly pubs for an early evening drink, or stroll along the sandy beach at Fishcombe Coves where dogs are welcome all year round.

Step inside this lovely ex-railway worker’s cottage and enter the open-plan living space where your pup will never be far from sight. Cook up a delicious dinner for two in the compact but well-equipped kitchen area to share at the cosy dining table with original cottage-style built in seat. Snuggle up on the comfortable sofa to share a bottle of wine, with your hound sprawled at your feet. When it’s time for bed, head upstairs to the first floor where you will find a double bedroom and stylish shower room. Remember to bring your pup’s favourite bedding so they can rest their paws in comfort too. To the front of the cottage is a delightful enclosed patio where you can enjoy an early evening glass of wine.

Stroll through the village to reach Berry Head Nature Reserve (1.5 miles) for walks along the headland and stunning views across the coastline. Step onto the South West Coast Path to sniff out one of the dog-friendly coves for a picnic and a doggy paddle. Hop onboard the dog-friendly passenger ferry to Torquay (8.5 miles) where you can walk along the palm-tree lined promenade and step back in time at Bygones as you wander the replica Victorian street scenes with your hound at your side.

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

The cottage is very comfortable with a pub nearby and excellent views over the bay from the nearby park. There is a very frequent bus service to Paignton and /torquay. Perhaps you might stress how hilly Brixham is. This was not a problem for us but would be awkward for anybody with restricted mobility.

The sweetest little cottage in a great location. It's an up and down walk to the town but then, so is every other house in the area. Everything we needed was in the cottage and it was tastefully decorated throughout. Perfect.

The cottage is ideally situated close to the harbour and main streets, however the walk back is all uphill and could be a task for older people. Having said all that we really enjoyed our stay.
