We recently visited Brixham as we heard about the new Coco Lounge on the harbour. We love Coco in Torquay so thought we would give it a try. Stunning cocktail lounge with panoramic view of Brixham harbour. Relaxed with a great atmosphere.

Absolutely one of my favourite parts of the country. A wonderful atmosphere, very quaint with lots of little independent shops, lovely cafes and restaurants, boat and fishing trips. So much to see and do in the local area.

A lovely small harbour. It's just nice to sit by the harbour and just watch the world go by. (Even better if you've got a pint in your hand. Nice pubs and eating houses to choose from. Parking at the harbour can be a bit...More

There’s generally activity in the harbour to keep you interested, from the large sea-going trawlers to the open rowing gigs – and lots more in between. There’s the large commercial fish market, lots of fish & chip shops, other tourist shops and the opportunity to...More

Lovely little harbour. But a lack of fishing boats. I suspect some where out fishing but imagine many have been lots to the economic conditions. Nice to have a walk around. Busy little place.

I'm thinking of visiting Brixham for a few days in December but am worried it will be lifeless during the winter. Is it worth me visiting. My last visit to Brixham was over 30 years ago and i have fond memories of the place.

there is always enough to do and don't forget that there is a configuration of resorts along the coast easily accessible by bus including Torquay. there are plenty of exhibitions on year-round not to mention art galleries.

Is there much to see and do in Brixham in October or is it deserted by then, i'm thinking of a short break in the area then to potter around.
