We were fortunate to stay here for two nights at short notice just before the November lock-down.
Our room and the rest of the property were spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated, and in excellent condition. The room was quiet and the bed very comfortable.
The views from our Bay View bedroom and balcony are stunning.
Hosts Nathalie and Hervé have a background running very successful London restaurants for more than 25 years; their decades of experience in hospitality and Hervé's skills as a top chef are now entirely focused on running a superb three-roomed B&B and preparing the most wonderful breakfasts. Five stars does not begin to reflect the experience of staying here or the quality of the cooking.
Parking is available for each guest room, an important feature in Brixham. The wonderful elevated views of Brixham mean a short walk uphill after trips to explore the harbour and surrounds. There is easy access to the South Devon Coastal Path.
Beacon House cannot be faulted and we highly recommend a stay here.
From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed at this beautiful B&B ran by Herve & Nathalie. We received a lovely welcome drink before making our way to the top floor Bay View room. The view was incredible and having arrived to the sunshine we sat on the balcony and took it all in (the Marina, sea & all of Brixham below us). Could have sat there all day!! Fabulous.... The room was tastefully decorated with a sofa, extremely comfortable bed, quality bedding, fluffy towels and nice toiletries. Dressing gowns supplied which is a nice touch and complementary bottled water in fridge in the hallway, which you can also use to store a bottle of wine or other drinks should you wish...
The location is very quiet, has a car park at the side of the house which is excellent, as parking is limited in Brixham. Its a short 5 min walk down quite a lot of steps to reach the harbour and the lovely little shops/restaurants/bars. There is also a lovely local pub at the end of the road (30-40 second walk) which was ideal to have a drink & finish the day.
Finally, BREAKFAST!!!! WOW!!! I tried the full Frenglish, my partner had the continental. Then the 2nd day we were talked into trying the Eggs Benedict - just incredible!! Herve had a very successful restaurant for 25 years and it showed! Honestly the best breakfast I have ever had.
Thanks to you both for a lovely stay & we hope to see you again. Lisa & Alex
We had the pleasure of staying at Beacon House for 4 nights in October.
This bed and breakfast is without doubt a jewel in Brixham's crown.
From arrival to departure attention to detail was second to none.
We were staying in the Bayview room which gave a panoramic view of the bay. Impeccably clean and tastefully decorated, an oasis of calm in this COVID madness!
Breakfast wow Breakfast! The expression "Breakfast like a king"definitely applies!
To be honest we wanted to keep this to ourselves but that would be truly selfish.
We will definitely return to our "secret" hideaway!!

We first met Herve and Nathalie the owners of Beacon House many years ago when Herve was the chef /proprietor of a delightful fish restaurant in London. The standards there were very high and although we are all older now, the standards at Beacon House are just as high.
We stayed in the Bay View Room which was spotlessly clean with a large balcony with an unbeatable view.
The breakfast cooked to order from a large menu was nothing short of excellent and served in a room with a great view of the town and harbour.
The general ambience is helpful and friendly.
The location is a short but not difficult walk up from the harbourside.
Brixham was not built for the motor car with little parking. Beacon House has a parking space for each room right next to it. This is a major plus.
Would we return?- already booked!
We spent 3 nights at the Beacon House B&B in October (2020) and were very pleased indeed with our selection - wonderful hosts, lovely room (Beacon Room) and really superb breakfast. Would highly recommend for a Brixham B&B and will definitely use again in the future.
