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. The pretty multi-colour painted fishermen's houses, many now beautifully restored as holiday cottages, 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 yachtsmen and sailors worldwide.
