Tucked away in a traffic free lane just above Brixham’s outer harbour and fish market, The Mizzen is a converted sail loft that enjoys the most spectacular sea views from a full width panoramic window in the first floor lounge. The large ground floor bedroom also benefits from wonderful sea views. By the way, the word Mizzen is the nautical term for the sail behind the mainsail.
The Mizzen is laid out in an ‘upside down’ fashion with the open plan lounge / kitchen / diner and bathroom located on the upper floor in order to take full advantage of the panoramic views. The large bedroom with a king size bed and a single bed are to be found on the ground floor, which also enjoys good sea views.
The new owners have furnished and decorated this romantic cottage with a deft touch and it oozes charm and character from every corner. Nautical themed artwork and paintings, squishy sofas, woven cushions and colourful fabrics give this cottage a wonderful ‘home from home’ feel that’s a cut above the average.
As with all of our properties, quality bed linen & towels are included as well as wi-fi, and all utilities. There is also fully controllable electric heating to all areas.
Parking - This property does not come with a parking space. However, you can order a virtual parking permit online at a cost of approx. £35 per week. These permits are valid for all of the 32 Torbay council pay and display car parks in the wider Torbay area including the 4 in Brixham – very useful if you plan to travel around the area. Full details and a web link will be sent with your arrival information approx. 6 weeks before your holiday begins.
Free safe and convenient on street parking is also available in surrounding roads.
Short breaks of 2 nights or more are available all year.
NOTE: Due to the steep internal stairs, this property is not suitable for children under 5 years or guests with mobility issues. It is also situated on a hill with fairly steep steps up from the harbour area. There are, however, plentiful cheap taxies available in Brixham that can drop you at the top of the steps and save you the walk.
Damage Deposit - your card will be pre-authorised for a £100 security deposit when you pay your balance. This authorisation is released within 7 days of departure.
