Welcome to
Rockhopper Cottage,
Brixham

Rocky.jpg

Rockhopper Cottage is a beautiful, first floor, 2-bedroom maisonette holiday cottage on the charming Mount Pleasant Road in Brixham, Devon. It's located just five minutes' walk from the centre of the town and its bristling working harbour.  The road is directly above the main shopping streets of Bolton Street and Fore Street.  Just 50 metres from the front door, you can enjoy stunning views across this lovely and busy fishing port. The many lanes and steps leading down to the harbour and Fore Street offer a fun and varied way to access the town centre. The hills are steep to climb, but the views are worth it!

There is a stoney beach in Brixham itself, with other lovely coves within walking distance. The SW coastal path is stunning, and beautiful Berry Head and St Mary's Bay are walkable within an hour.  You may even see Brixham's seals or dolphins! Paignton and Torquay, Dartmouth and Kingswear, Totnes and Newton Abbot are all a short drive away.

We offer comfortable and well-appointed accommodation, with all the facilities and features you need.  The cottage is furnished and fitted to an extremely high standard, and we know you'll fall in love with it!

Our accommodation at Rockhopper

 

Real comfort and convenience on a quiet and charming residential street

Rockhopper is a two-bedroom, two-storey maisonette. It's located on the first floor, accessed via a dozen stone steps from the pavement of Mount Pleasant Road. Although we have no sea view from the house, you can enjoy stunning views down to the town and harbour from the street, less than a minute's walk from the front door. The houses in this corner of Brixham were built in the heart of a quarry, which still forms a beautiful and dramatic backdrop to our garden. You really do have the feeling that Rockhopper was carved out of stone!

We offer all of the features and facilities that you would expect from a luxury holiday cottage:
