Rose Cottage is an old three storey terrace house in the historic fishing town of Brixham, conveniently located within walking distance of Brixham’s best attractions.
This cosy cottage is full of character with quirky features and crooked stairs. It is warm in winter and cool in summer.
There's three bedrooms, the top is a twin under the eaves with a view of the sky. It's a perfect place for friends to share.
Kitchen is small but has everything you need for cooking a good meal.

Boendet
Situated in the conservation area of Brixham, Rose Cottage is roomy with plenty of storage. It sleeps six people with two sunny double bedrooms, and a twin bedroom in the converted attic. Enjoy a walk in shower or a luxurious bath in the deep Victorian tub in the bathroom

From the dining room you can access a small terrace. In the morning it's a real sun trap, sheltered from the wind, with table and chairs and umbrella for summer dining.

The dining room boasts a table that sits six people, and a fridge freezer tucked away. The entrance to the sitting room is through the stable door, which you can keep open and feel like part of the neighbourhood. Three sofas mean seats for everybody around a coffee table where you can play games or snack, or just read the Sunday newspapers.

The cottage is centrally heated and very cosy in the winter months and cool and airy in the summer.

The kitchen is small but perfectly formed with oven, microwave, toaster and plenty of crockery and pots and pans.

The attic bedroom is up steep staircase. There is limited headroom under the eaves in this room, but it's a peaceful hideaway for the children, or adult friends. Mind your head!

There is no parking outside the house, but minutes away, past the church you can usually find a spot in Higher Manor Road, or Vicarage Hill. You can stop on the opposite corner from Rose Cottage to unload or load but it's a narrow road in the conservation area with double yellow lines! We have our own parking space in Manor Terrace and sometimes it is available and we will let you know prior to your visit

Gästers tillgång
For the duration of the booking, you can enjoy having the cottage entirely to yourself.

Andra saker att notera
As the stairs are narrow and steep Rose Cottage would not be suitable for people with mobility issues. There is only one bathroom and WC. This is outside the first double bedroom.

Being a seaside town, the seagulls can be noisy at night in spring when they are nesting. The church plays Abide with me a few times a day, the man who wrote the hymn used to live at Berry Head and preached at All Saints Church.

Brixham, England, Storbritannien

Wake up up to the sound of seagulls wheeling over the town. Trawler boats sounding horns as they head out to sea for a fresh catch of fish.

Brixham fish is big business. More than £20m worth is landed in the harbour each year and recently more than £24m was invested in the redevelopment of Brixham fish market. Seafood chef and local restaurateur Mitch Tonks sums it up nicely: "Brixham is the home of British fishing. This is the British mother port."

We are close to town, just five minute walk to the harbour a great place to sit and watch to water night or day. Totnes and Dartmouth are close by. It's a hard working Devon town with a fascinating history. There's a lovely walk along the harbour past the Marina to the Berry Head Hotel, and beyond that to Berry Head itself. The Guardian recently described Brixham as the 'Naples' of the English Riviera!

Brixham is at the far end of Torbay and is in the lee of Berry Head. This combined with the famous Brixham Breakwater ensures that Brixham is a sheltered port and a natural shelter. The beaches are found in coves, are secluded, less prone to overcrowding on busy periods and have more of a rocky coastline to explore. Rockpools, fishing and a quiet time can all be enjoyed by taking those extra few minutes to get to the beach.

In the Middle Ages, Brixham was the largest fishing port in the south west of England. In the 1890s, there were about 300 trawling vessels in Brixham, most individually owned. The trawlers can still be seen coming in and out of the harbour, followed by flocks of seagulls. The fish market is open to the public on two special days in the summer, when the finer points of catching and cooking fish are explained. The modern boats are diesel-driven, but several of the old sailing trawlers have been preserved.
William Prince of Orange (afterwards King William III of Great Britain & Ireland) landed in Brixham, with his mainly Dutch army, on 5 November 1688 during the Glorious Revolution, and issued his famous declaration "The Liberties of England and The Protestant Religion I Will Maintain".
Many local people still have Dutch surnames, being direct descendants of soldiers in that army. A road leading from the harbour up a steep hill, to where the Dutch made their camp, is still called Overgang, Dutch for 'passage' or 'crossing'.
30 April - 1 May The Brixham pirate festival takes place over the May Day bank holiday weekend. Gather on the quayside for a weekend of sea shanties, sword dancing and swashbuckling shenanigans. (email hidden)
18 June The quirky Brixham trawler race is a sight to behold – preferably from one of the quayside pubs. Skippers dress their boats with bunting and battle it out on a two-lap course around Torbay.

10 September The aptly named Fishstock festival returns to Brixham for its third year. You'll find Britain's best-loved seafood dishes being prepared on the quayside, as well as cooking demos, entertainment for kids, local bands and a cabaret marquee.

In summer the Cowtown carnival is held, a reminder of when Brixham was two separate communities with only a marshy lane to connect them. Cowtown was the area on top of the hill where the farmers lived, while a mile away in the harbour was Fishtown where the seamen lived. Cowtown, the St Mary's Square area, is on the road leaving Brixham to the south west, in the direction of Kingswear, upon which stands a church built on the site of a Saxon original. The town holds a yearly pirate event which competes for the title of most pirates in one place and this draws visitors from far and wide.
The coffin house reflects Brixham humour: it is coffin-shaped and when a father was asked for the hand in marriage of his daughter, he said he would 'see her in a coffin, before she wed'. The future son-in-law bought the coffin-shaped property, called it the Coffin House, and went back to the father and said 'Your wishes will be met, you will see your daughter in a coffin, the Coffin House'. Amazed by this, the father gave his blessing.
The street names reflect the town's history. Pump Street is where the village pump stood. Monksbridge was a bridge built by the monks of Totnes Priory. Lichfield Drive was the route that the dead (from the Old English 'lich' meaning a corpse) were taken for burial at St Mary’s churchyard. Salutation Mews, near the church, dates from when England was Catholic, and the salutation was to the Virgin Mary. Similarly, Laywell Road recalls Our Lady’s Well. The first building seen when coming into Brixham from Paignton is the old white-boarded Toll House where all travellers had to pay a fee to keep the roads repaired.
You can take a ferry to Torquay for two pounds, or walk to Berry Head and watch the fulmars wheel around the cliffs, and watch small boats sail up the coast.
The tower of All Saints' Church, founded in 1815, stands guard over the town. The composer of Abide With Me, Rev. Francis Lyte was a vicar at the church. He lived at Berry Head House, now a hotel, and when he was a very sick man, near to dying, he looked out from his garden as dusk fell over Torbay, and the words of that hymn came into his mind.

It has all amenities, co op chemists, charity shops, a fabulous Vinyl record shop the Cavern, and an amazing camera shop Miffsuds Photographic. For new, second hand and vintage cameras. Passport





BEACHES & COVES
Broadsands is within 2 miles of Brixham. It is one of the most extensive gently sloping beaches in the Bay, with lots of parking and all facilities. This beach can be reached by a short car journey or, by a walk along the South West coastal path. This also takes in Churston & Elberry cove and Broadsands headland and makes a great day out for the active! Further south around Berry Head, the beaches of the South Hams beckon, Man Sands, beautiful Blackpool sands and magnificent Slapton Sands, all worth a visit.

Coleton Fishacre – Kingswear, nr. Brixham TQ6 0EQ Travel back in time to the Jazz Age at the holiday home of the D'Oyly Carte family. Magical 12-hectare garden: viewpoints give enticing glimpses out to sea, paths weave through glades past tranquil ponds, and tender plants from the Mediterranean, South Africa and New Zealand thrive in the moist and sheltered valley. This most evocative of holiday homes, built in the Arts & Crafts style, is imbued with 1920s' elegance. A light, joyful atmosphere fills the rooms and music plays, echoing the family's Gilbert and Sullivan connections.

Walking the South Coastal Path
Brixham to Babbacombe
Length
13.2 miles (21.2 km)
If you are expecting the walk through the English Riviera to be a trudge along pavements, you are in for a pleasant surprise. You may not actually spot any of the famous coral fossils of Hope’s Nose, but you cannot fail to notice the extraordinary geology along this stretch of coast. The Path passes around the limestone peninsula of Berry Head and wave cut platforms of red sandstone at Shoalstone into the thriving fishing port of Brixham where your walk begins. The hustle and bustle of Brixham’s port is soon left behind as you head through woodland and past some lovely beaches to emerge on the edge of Paignton.
