Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Brixham

The South Devon maritime port of Brixham in Devon is still as lively and bustling today as it always was and offers plenty of fun for family holidays. Many of the holiday cottages in Brixham are pretty multi-colour painted fishermen's houses, many now beautifully restored. They sit above the harbour like a patchwork quilt shining in the bright sunshine.

Brixham sits in the Southern corner of Torbay opposite Torquay and is a mecca for yachters and sailors worldwide. The town plays host to the replica of Sir Francis Drake's 'Golden Hind' moored, which can be visited all year round. Drake's ship is only one of Brixham Harbour's attractions. Please arrive early to see trawlers landing their catches to be auctioned off at the Quayside Fishmarket, catch a ferry across Torbay to Torquay and back or hire a little motorboat of your own and set off for an afternoon's mackerel fishing in the bay, bring home the catch for a BBQ in the garden of your Brixham holiday home.

In recent years Brixham has extended its marina, which is now seen as one of the premier ports of call on the South coast. From Brixham, you can sail East up the Jurassic coast towards Weymouth, Poole and as far as Brighton, or turn West and head for Cornwall and Fowey and Falmouth fishing ports. There are lovely coastal walks along the South West Coast Path to Berry Head, or head inland and catch a vintage Great Western Railway steam train from Churston to Dartmouth or Paignton.

Self-catering holiday cottages in Brixham lie within easy reach by car or boat of the other traditional seaside resorts in Torbay, Goodrington, Paignton and Torquay, where plenty of classic seaside family fun is guaranteed. Inland, spend a day on Dartmoor or take a boat trip along the River Dart from Totnes to Dartmouth.
