Ready Salted   3 Bedrooms   |   3 Bathrooms   |   WiFi | Town House | Sea Views   |   Sleeps 6

High on the cliff above Brixham harbour, a four-storey terraced house with spectacular, uninterrupted views over the marina and out to sea from huge width-of-house, floor-to-ceiling windows on every floor. Completely and expertly refurbished to exploit those breathtaking views, it is ¼ mile from the harbour and town centre, next to Furzeham rose garden and a short walk from Fishcombe Cove (small coarse sand beach) - a great location.

Inside, oak floors, white walls, considered furnishings and clever detail make staying here relaxing and comfortable. Three steps up to front door; small hall; superbly fitted kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric oven/gas hob, TV/DVD) with built-in seating/table and sliding door to balcony. Stairs down to living room (split-level, step) with TV/DVD and doors to neat, enclosed terrace (table/chairs, bench). Three bedrooms – a smart, cabin-feel split-level double (5’ bed or 2’6” twins) at lower-ground level with en suite shower-room (suite); first-floor double (5’ bed) with glass balustrade and shower-room (suite); and, with the most panoramic views of all from the top floor, another double (5’4” bed) with sliding window and balustrade plus bathroom (suite with separate shower). Useful enclosed porch/store (washer-drier). Sleeps maximum of one baby with each party.  Garage for one car, 300 yards; parking for another car in front. An incredibly positioned house, brilliant at any time of year.

Torbay and the Red Cliffs: Napoleon declared Torquay “beau” when he saw it from the sea (true, he was a prisoner and there wasn’t much of it then), and certainly it could be in the south of France when, in the sunshine, you look down from most of its seven hills on the expensive boats in its harbour/marina, windsurfers and water-skiers skimming its bay, and palm trees, very well-kept public lawns and flower beds and posh-looking hotels lining its seafront behind a sandy beach. People play bowls in white clothes. The exotic impression fades in its streets, but name a likely resort facility, sport or amusement and you can bet Torquay will have it, as well as some fine houses on its hills.

The three towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham surround a very beautiful bay and make up the West Country’s largest resort. Paignton, less glamorous-looking than Torquay, has red cliffs and sand and an excellent zoo. Brixham is the fishing port, with still attractive harbour and tiers of coloured houses around it. There are several sandy beaches, and boat trips across the bay and round Berry Head (lighthouse) to Dartmouth.

North of Torquay is a mainly cliff-coast to the boat-filled mouth of the long, broad river Teign estuary (Teignmouth). Above Teignmouth, its good golf course has wonderful views both inland to Dartmoor and out to sea. The best route to Exeter and places east is via it and the A380 – not the coast road which is mainly ribbon-developed, slow and dull. The most beautiful route of all is by the mainline railway (Brunel designed) which for much of the way between Newton Abbot and Exeter hugs the shore.

Brixham: Torbay’s fishing port: beautiful busy harbour (boat trips), fish market, shops, fish restaurants (harbour views), deli. Lots of beaches nearby (Goodrington Sands and Broadsands, 3 miles); indoor and open-air (sea) swimming pools, yacht marina. Cliff walks to Man Sands (sandy beach), 4 miles, and Kingswear, 8. Boats for hire. Steam railway. Ferry to Torbay or Dartmouth (town). Excellent bus service to Exeter (cathedral city) and around Torbay. Golf, 2 miles. Torquay, 7.

Sleeps maximum of one baby with each party.
