Brixham, Devon

The English Riviera

Holiday accommodation in the Heart of Brixham

Life in the busy Devon fishing town of Brixham has always centred around the harbour, where heritage trawlers jostle for space with day-boats heading out to sea for the day’s catch, bringing it home daily to Brixham’s famous Fish Market.

Here, in the heart of England’s Seafood Coast, the freshest fish and most delicious seafood is on the menu everywhere.

Brixham Breakwater

Yachts galore can be seen at the popular marina and in the outer harbour. Enjoy a stroll along the waterfront promenade and along the half-mile long breakwater with its lighthouse, and then relax on popular Breakwater Beach.

Torquay Day Trips

With its palm-lined harbour, international marina, sandy beach and wonderful array of continental style cafes, restaurants and cocktails, Torquay is well worth visiting, either by a short drive or on the Brixham to Torquay ferry.

Mitch Tonk's Rockfish

The closest restaurant to the source of UK fish, Rockfish Brixham sits in the world famous fish market overlooking the boats as they land their catch, which is in the kitchen within an hour. ‘Tomorrow’s fish is still in the sea’.

Berry Head

The high cliffs of Berry Head National Nature Reserve situated on the outskirts of Brixham offers endless walks with vast views spanning the coast of The English Riviera. Stop by at The Guardhouse Cafe for a bite to eat.
