“Lovely Little Cottage”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This is a lovely cottage in an ideal location. There is everything you could need for a short or long stay including books, games, tv, hairdryers, mini iron and all cooking facilities and the place is decorated really nicely. Unfortunately we had bad weather so didn't get to use the outdoor area, but it is a nice sizeable space. Parking is quite far, but OK if you don't plan to be in and out of the car alot once you're there. One key *complaint* not that it is the owners fault, but the house opposite had a party both Friday and Satuday night with loud bassy music going on until well past 3am and the occassional groups of people leaving created additional noise. As the main bedroom is at the front of the house this was very noticeable. I was surprised that the neighbours had not complained - unfortuatley this made our stay abit less enjoyable as we did not sleep well at all. But perhaps this was just a one off and we got unlucky.

Communication and booking with the owner before the stay was simple and straight forward, with detailed instructions. I would recommend this accomodation to others staying in the area despite some of the noise issues we experienced and would consider staying there again myself.

“A very relaxing short break”
Reviewed 19 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed at Seabird cottage for 3 nights last week and loved it! A very well appointed traditional fisherman's cottage, with bags of character. The cottage was very comfortable, very well appointed with everything you could need, and location was super! Not great for anyone that would struggle with stairs but if you are able, it's a perfect spot!
The back garden/terrace was a real little suntrap and the decor throughout had lots of lovely touches, making it very homely. Wish we'd had another couple of days to relax.

One small thing to note - there's no WIFI - which is fine, however we did struggle with our 4G/3G signal in the house (just down to it being a traditional building). So if you think you'd need internet access for planning etc, be mindful of this. Not a show stopper though!

“Homely cottage in a perfect location!”
Reviewed 28 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We instantly felt at home in Seabird cottage. A beautiful little place in the heart of Brixham, close to the shops and restaurants. Plus it has a lovely outside space for sunny days. The owner was very professional and helpful, and kindly posted my bag back to me after I accidentally left it behind, oops!
