At a Glance

1 Osprey is a front row, architect designed, 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Brixham. It has a large terrace and dozens of luxury touches in this peaceful new development just a short walk from Brixham Harbour. Spectacular sea views from lounge, master bedroom and terrace, on-site heated swimming pool and private access to the beach at Fishcombe Cove below.
1 Osprey is nestled at the far end of the front row of this very popular & peaceful development close to Brixham Harbour. It was designed by the scheme architect for his own use, so features a few unique touches not found in other Cove properties. These including a large walk in shower (no bathtub to climb over) a bigger more spacious floor area overall, American style shutters on most windows and naturally one of the best locations in the whole development. Being a ground floor apartment with a walk in shower also makes it more accessible for guests with mobility issues.

The Cove comprises 38 apartments sympathetically designed to blend in with the National Trust woodlands to the right. The South West Coastal Path runs behind the development. The Cove is a private gated development with on site open air heated swimming pool and direct private access to the pebble beach at Fishcombe Cove below. Every property has its own dedicated numbered parking space.

This beautifully furnished and decorated apartment features a large terrace with outside dining furniture for those wonderful alfresco meals spent taking in the sparkling blues and greens of Torbay. The ever changing vista of little sailboats, modern fishing trawlers, passenger ferries to Torquay, majestic gaff rigged heritage vessels, canoes and kayaks will keep you thoroughly enchanted during your stay. Don't forget to watch out for Sammy the harbour seal and the occasional pod of dolphins too. The on site heated swimming pool will surely be a hit with the children. Brixham harbour with its many shops, cafes restaurants and bars is a 15 minute walk through Battery Gardens. Hourly bus service to Brixham stops just outside the entrance.

The accommodation briefly comprises a large open plan lounge / diner / kitchen with full height and width patio doors, 2 x 2 seater sofas, dining table & 4 chairs and a bright modern kitchen with every luxury including dishwasher, clothes washer / dryer and espresso machine. The fully tiled bathroom has a large step in shower and high quality sanitary ware. The master bedroom features a luxury double bed, built in wardrobe, TV and sliding patio doors with direct access to the terrace and American style shutters. The twin bedroom features 2 comfortable single beds, built in wardrobes, TV and American style shutters on the windows.

Being at the end of the front row, Osprey 1 enjoys even more privacy than most apartments here, as there will be virtually no one walking past to interrupt the tranquilities.

A dedicated onsite parking space is included as is wi-fi, access to the shared onsite swimming pool (May to September), quality bed linen & towels and all utilities.

Short breaks of 2 nights or more are available at most times except summer school holidays. If short break prices are not displayed, please enquire and we will quote you.

Me and my wife decided last minute to have a few days away at the Cove and decided to rebook Osprey 1 again. We have stayed in this apartment many times over the last few years and always enjoyed the peace and quiet at this time of year. Unfortunately this time we were surprised how tired and unloved the place looked. Needs painting for a start inside and out. The 2 small settees are way past there usefulness. Uncomfortable and worn out cushions. Would not be expensive to replace with a nice firm corner suite so you can sit and enjoy the lovely views this apartment offers. The rug in front of the main patio doors looked like it had never been cleaned it was again past it’s usefulness and worn out. The other main issue which although we had experienced before not as bad was there was a group of 4 people staying above Osprey 1 and the noise from people walking around banging doors moving chairs around on floor ruined our break. It may not be there fault the apartments are not very soundproofed you hear everything from above and vice versa. Including toilets flushing from above ! Wooden floors obviously don’t help with the noise. We love the cove and booking with brixham holidays makes it an easy process. We think it is time to look at another apartment next time on the site.

Excellent location, could not be faulted in that aspect! View was breathtaking. Will certainly come back to this complex but as it is now would be a different apartment.

although we would stop in the complex again we would pick a different apartment as we love to be outside on holiday and get the BBQ going this apartment has no sun loungers or BBQ you can use most of the other apartments do have these... the weather was beautiful but we were sat bolt upright for the fortnight we were there... these are not cheap to hire so outside comfort is a must have..also something simple like egg cups not supplied I made some out of tin foil someone needs to have a good look around this place and get the small things that count sorted the last little niggle is on arrival all that was supplied was 4 sachets of coffee 6 sachets of sugar and 6 sachets of milk not a lot for some where out of town and we arrived by train not by car
Very happy with the apartment BUT!!!

It was a long long difficult trek (for older people) into Brixham. We are 79 and 73. We would not have booked this holiday if we had known how tiring it would have been to go into Brixham. I know there was a bus into Brixham hourly but with bad weather, who wants to hang around a bus stop waiting for a bus that is nearly always late. The apartment was lovely and we were very comfortable, we just wish we had known about the walk into Brixham.

Great location with stunning views and an easy walk into Brixham. Accommodation was to a good standard and had all the necessary for a self catering stay. Great discovery and highly recommended
