About this property

This lovingly refurbished character cottage which tucks itself away up a quiet pedestrian lane, is just two minutes walk from Brixham Harbour and is the perfect place for families and couples to call home when visiting South Devon’s beautiful coastline.

Offering two bedrooms, a bathroom, lounge / diner and fully equipped kitchen, Family Tides has everything you’ll need for a truly comfortable stay, including a wonderful sun deck, completed with an outdoor dining set for fresh-air suppers, and glimpses of the harbour below. The property has in recent times been given a contemporary makeover but has held onto its ‘fisherman’s cottage’ charm so guests can expect to enjoy a range of modern facilities as well as original features like exposed beams, sash windows and fireplaces.

Perfectly positioned within the town, Family Tides also offers a fantastic base from which to explore the surrounding area with hidden beaches like Fishcombe and Churston Cove being less than 25 minutes’ walk away. For something even closer, Breakwater Beach is 10 minutes walk along the seafront past the harbour and Marina, so if you’re partial to an early morning dip, then this is the place for it. Along with fantastic coastal walks in the area including those around Berry Head and Churston Woods, Brixham has a thriving foodie scene that’s bound to impress the most discerning of diners. Grab your freshly brewed coffees and delicious breakfasts from nearby restaurants such as Port Espresso and Curious Kitchen, or indulge in a fabulous seafood supper at Simply Fish, Albero’s or Rock Fish – all within easy reach by car or on foot.
