At a Glance

Step into a world of magic and fantasy where baby dragons nest in the chimney, a log crackles in the hearth of a wood panelled kitchen and a secret garden waits to be discovered. Artfully furnished and decorated 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom house with harbour views, terraced secret garden, log fire, wi-fi. Dedicated parking. Dogs welcome.
A totally unique and enchanting property with so many interesting design features it's impossible to list them all. Children & adults alike will delight in discovering new quirks and magical eccentricities hidden in the details of this amazing home. If Harry Potter could choose a magical place to holiday, it would probably be The Dragons Nest!

The Dragons Nest name was inspired by the two baby dragon sculptures clinging to the chimney stack and that pretty much sets the tone for the seductive interiors of this 'one of a kind' property. Many of the wooden features and internal doors are handmade from reclaimed boat timbers. See how many you can find.

The property has been hugely extended during 2019 and now includes a ground floor utility room with washing machine & tumble dryer and a large shower room. The second floor as an extra double en-suite bedroom and the third floor now has a door and bridge that leads to the secret garden.

3D Tour


A charming quirky house with stunning views!
Verified Up Front Reviews
We stayed at the Dragon’s Nest at the beginning of June 2021. The weather was good, so we made full use of the gardens, with those amazing views of the harbour, as well as the lovely barbeque area. The house itself was charming and looked just as it does on the 3D Tour. We had read the previous reviews, so knew there would be some challenges with regards to the steep stairs, restricted heights, and the number of steps to climb to the top level of the garden. Admittedly, with my two grandchildren, aged 2 and 4, this was quite a challenge, and they did ask to be carried up and down quite frequently! In the kitchen there was plenty of crockery, pots and pans, cutlery, washing up liquid and cloths. Only one roll of toilet paper was provided for each bathroom, so I would suggest bringing more with you if you are a large family or group. The shortage of bed linen was a slight problem, but this was resolved with a phone call to Brixham Holiday Homes, who dealt with it straightaway. I should have perhaps explained, when booking the cottage, that two of the adults were mother and son, not a couple, and therefore would require linen for an extra bed. I’m sure my family will agree that we had a lovely time in Brixham; with all the shops and restaurants right on the doorstep, as well as the amazing views of the harbour, we certainly made the right choice of staying at the Dragon’s Nest!
Great stay

Perfect location, lovely house with beautifully maintained garden. We had a lovely stay in brixham and hope to be back!
Brixham is a nice place to stay, Dragons Nest has its challenges!

The house was interesting but a few points to note: For anyone taller than 4 foot the stairs are a challenge due to restricted heights, and the property is on four floors! The house is right on a busy road, there isn’t even a pavement so you need to be very careful leaving and entering. The kitchen is quirky but is in need of updating, as does the cooking equipment ie pots and pans, hon, microwave etc. On a plus side, the views are great, lots of bathrooms and location, road aside, is great with 2 minute walks to pubs, shops and cafes. The WiFi was good (although the TV needs updating) and the service from Brixham Holidays was very good.
Absolutely fantastic

We loved our stay at The Dragons Nest. We were very lucky to have excellent weather in September. The position of the cottage is excellent next to pubs, cafes and shops and with an amazing view. We enjoyed many walks from the cottage with the dogs to nearby coves and along craggy paths. The house is on many levels and so too is the garden. The excellent weather enabled us to make full use of the garden and the amazing views from the very top tier. We counted 84 steps from the top down to the kitchen! The very top is amazing though and well worth the climb.
