A Cosy Period Holiday Cottage Close to Brixham Harbour
Red Sails is a Period Fisherman's Cottage dating from the 1850s.
This Cosy Fisherman's Cottage gets its name from the red sails of the traditional Brixham Sailing Trawlers. Restored examples of these, the Vintage Sailing Trawlers Vigilance and the Pilgrim can be found in the Marina. The cottage originally belonged to a Brixham Trawler Owner John Pine who lived there with his Wife, Five Children and his Apprentice in the 1800s. Today Red Sails is a much loved comfortable and well equipped Holiday Cottage attracting visitors from as far away as China and Australia.
We have made changes to the accommodation to allow for easier and greater cleaning.
This recently renovated 4 Bedroom Cottage sleeps 7 in two double bed rooms, one twin bed room and a single bedroom. Surprisingly for its location has its own off road parking with room for 3 cars (including at least 1 large 4x4).
An Excellent Location
The cottage is situated on a quiet Lane in the old part of town and just a short 5 minute walk from Brixham Harbour in South Devon. With views of the Harbour and the Marina from the front door, and panoramic views across Torbay and the whole of Lyme Bay from the elevated roof level rear patio, where you can enjoy a Barbecue with a breath taking sea view (On a clear day you can see as far as Portland Bill).
Lots to Do
With Fantastic local Restaurants serving freshly caught Seafood within an easy walk and so much to see and do in this beautiful part of Devon, Red Sails makes the ideal Holiday base.
Catch the Ferry from Brixham Harbour to visit Torquay, or go on a river Dart cruise to picturesque Dartmouth. Take a Sea Angling Boat Trip from the Harbour, go Fishing off the Breakwater, or simply enjoy the Fresh Catch of the Day at the Breakwater Beach Bistro.
Other places of interest include Agatha Christies home at Greenway, Paignton Zoo, the Dartmouth Steam Railway and the breath taking scenery of Dartmoor National Park.
