Cottage
A traditional yet chic fisherman's cottage in Brixham with stunning town, harbour and sea views and complimentary use of a beach hut at the nearby Broadsands beach. ​Thanks to its setting high above Brixham’s bustling harbour, the first thing that will strike you when you step inside The Seadog is the view. Sink down in the living room’s window seat and you will be captivated by the ever changing view.  As the tide ebbs and flows, look across to the cheerful cottages on the other side of the harbour by day and the twinkling lights of the town and harbour by night.   ​After a day exploring the local delights and filling your lungs full of fresh sea air, what better way to relax than in front of the living flame gas fire in the lounge followed by sinking into the memory foam mattresses wit...A traditional yet chic fisherman's cottage in Brixham with stunning town, harbour and sea views and complimentary use of a beach hut at the nearby Broadsands beach. ​Thanks to its setting high above Brixham’s bustling harbour, the first thing that will strike you when you step inside The Seadog is the view. Sink down in the living room’s window seat and you will be captivated by the ever changing view.  As the tide ebbs and flows, look across to the cheerful cottages on the other side of the harbour by day and the twinkling lights of the town and harbour by night.   ​After a day exploring the local delights and filling your lungs full of fresh sea air, what better way to relax than in front of the living flame gas fire in the lounge followed by sinking into the memory foam mattresses with cotton rich bedding. Each of the three bedrooms has a contemporary décor and a spacious feel, in particular the master with its King size bed and not to forget that view from the bay window.  When the fresh sea air beckons, step outside to the front terrace and enjoy the afternoon sun and watch the goings on in 'Fishtown'. Brixham’s harbour and town centre is within walking distance and you will find the heritage site of Berry Head National Nature Reserve via the South West Coast Path, and ferry boats that take passengers the short journey across the bay to Torquay throughout the year. So park up the car and explore. For cosy days in you will find a Smart HD TV complete with Freeview, BBC iPlayer and Netflix to keep all generations happy. There’s even a collection of books, games and puzzles for those evenings that are about unwinding.  A stay at The Seadog includes the complimentary use of a beach hut on Broadsands beach which is equipped with buckets and spades, chairs and sunloungers. Separated by the rows of colourful beach huts and the promenade, Broadsands has a large grass area for picnics and watching the passing steam trains on one side and the beach on the other side which at low tide makes a perfect playground for young and old. There is a café and toilet facilities along the promenade and the watersports centre offers sea kayaking, Stand Up Paddleboards and pedalos in the peak months.

Please take extra special care when using the rear steps as they are very steep and get very slippery when wet. Guests should hold onto the hand rail at all times when going up and down the steps and ensure there is only one person using the steps at any given time. Children should be supervised at all times when outside and the gate at the top of the stairs should be locked at all times – especially with small children.

We stayed in this cottage during the kids half term holiday and it was a perfect home away from home. The location is perfect and our son enjoyed spotting for boats in the harbour put the windows. What a great find We will definitely be back next year!

Had an amazing long weekend with couple and young baby. Everything we needed provided resulted in a very relaxing stay, exactly what we were after after booking last minute. Would definitely consider staying again if ever in the area. Andrew

After staying in an apartment owned by the same people, I booked this cottage for a last minute mid week break: what a good decision! The harbour views are stunning and a real treat after being in the city for months. It was also invaluable having access to the beach hut for cooler days on the beach. The owners are lovely and always contactable. Looking forward to returning to their other apartment again this October! Thanks guys!

About the neighbourhood
Brixham is a stunningly beautiful harbourside town on South Devon’s beautiful English Riviera. Life here has always centred around the harbour, where heritage trawlers jostle for space with day boats heading out to sea for the day’s catch, bringing it home daily to Brixham’s famous Fish Market. Here, in the heart of England’s Seafood Coast, the freshest fish and most delicious seafood is on the menu everywhere. Enjoy a stroll along the waterfront promenade, visit Berry Head Nature Reserve or perhaps walk the stunning South West Coast path allowing you to walk through woods and along cliff tops to a variety of local beaches.
Getting around
There's so much to explore in Brixham by foot. You can easily travel by car however and there are a number of bus stops in the town to take you to and from the various sites and attractions across Torbay. The ferry from Brixham to Torquay is a fantastic way to explore the beautiful coastline also.
