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.

View outstanding, apartment ok
Verified Up Front Reviews
It’s the 2nd time we have stayed at the cove, the first time in Osprey 1, being a ground floor apartment you have to expect some noise from the upstairs apartment. I will definitely book an upstairs apartment if we stay again. We were rather disappointed with the cleanliness of Osprey 1, the bathroom floor needs a good bleach and there is grimy silicone or grout around the shower area, I had read another review before we booked that mentioned faults with the apartment but in all fairness the review was last September and I honestly thought those faults would have been rectified seeing as it’s now a February, they hadn’t, The towel rail does not get hot, the bin lid is broken, the oven tray was full of grease, the apartment smelt like stale beer, the settees are stained. There are cobwebs in the lounge area, the front door needs re packing as it has dropped and is quite difficult to open. Would I stay in Osprey 1 again, No We stayed in Puffin 4 on our first visit and we couldn’t fault it, so I expected the same standard if not better seeing as it is marketed as luxury, Osprey 1 does not come up to the standard of luxury. The table light lampshade in the lounge needs replacing you can see damage to it when the light is on, behind the shutters needs cleaning, plus the shutters themselves need cleaning. The view is lovely and the apartment is warm. I do hope the faults with this apartment will be put right.
Nice apartment amazing views

We have stayed in this apartment many times since 2015 and love the cove. Everything you need for a few days away is provided. The views from your living space is amazing. Looking out at the trawlers coming and going from Brixham port. Can’t wait to come and stay again. The Booking service from Steve& Carrie and the team at Brixham holidays is always perfect. Thanks again Steve & Yvonne .
Another lovely stay

Whenever we visit my parents in Brixham we stay at The Cove. They are always wonderful breaks and we love it there. Amazing location and view which makes up for the lack of coat hooks, drawers, storage in general and tiny bathrooms! Just be frugal with your packing and don’t bring much cold food and you’ll be fine!
A wonderful tranquil week

This was the first time we had stayed at the cove, and wasn’t disappointed. We have stayed in other places around Brixham since 2010 but by far this was the the ideal place for our family. The accommodation was clean and well laid out especially with three small children. Who all loved staying at the Cove and being able to see the boats in the distance. Despite the bad weather on some days ion a days outing, once you opened the front door it was so warm and inviting that it was lovely to have cosy nights in after being out all day. Waking up the first morning to a glorious morning of sunshine at the end of October and stunning views, was so tranquil and relaxing. After a wonderful week we were all refreshed.
Excellent location just a few issues this time with apartment

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.
