“Excellent stay”
Reviewed 8 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Myself and my Son visited Brixham during May bank holiday and we had an excellent stay in this cottage. The location was great and was very comfortable. The only downfall was the parking situation, there is no parking near the cottage so we had to park in the town which is a steep walk back up to the cottage. Was a brilliant weekend away, and would book the cottage again without hesitation and would definitely recommend to others.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay although you didn't get the best of weather but Brixham is Brixham whatever the weather. Parking can be a bit difficult but we do give information prior to arrival and level parking can usually be found within 5 mins walk once you have dropped off at the cottage. Thank you for taking the time to make your kind and constructive review Love to see you again David & Clare

“Well equipped, cute and comfy!”
Reviewed 8 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We have just arrived back from 4 days at seabird cottage for my daughters birthday break. The cottage was so well equipped and comfortable, it has everything you need and is close to the harbour and all shops and restaurants. Parking is a bit of a nightmare but we worked it out! Thank you David and Clare for a lovely place to stay.

“Great spot for family holiday”
Reviewed 7 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Seabird Cottage was a great home base for our trip to Brixham. Super centrally located and convenient. We didn't have any trouble finding parking nearby. We have two small children (2 and 5) and they both loved the holiday house, with its fun steps, outdoor patio, and comfy beds and sofas. It might have felt slightly small for our family of 4 if we'd spent much time indoors, but for a place to sleep, eat breakfast, plan our day and come back to after fish and chips on the harborside .... it was perfect!

Thank you for your kind review. We agree it is a 'cosy' cottage but we find as you did it a great base for enjoying Brixham and Torbay. It always amazes us that whole families were brought up in these cottages, how times have changed !!!

“Just Lovely”
Reviewed 14 November 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I am a little late in leaving this review as we stayed in August 2014. But we had a brilliant time at Seabird Cottage, we visited with our three young children (they shared the double bed while we used the singles) and our border terrier. The cottage was perfectly proportioned and only a short walk from brixham harbour, even with a pushchair, dog and all the belongings it takes for a day out with a young family it only took a couple of minutes to get to the harbour. The neighbours were really friendly too. The cottage is spotlessly clean, the shower is fantastic (we really miss that!) and beautifully decorated. The stairs are a little dicey for young children but we managed just fine. Brixham itself was fantastic, we left our car only a short distance away and we didn't go back to it until we went home! we travelled everywhere by boat which was great fun. We will most definitely be back at Seabird cottage when we come back to Brixham. David was really helpful too. Book your stay now - you wont regret it!!
