Welcome to
Rockhopper Cottage,


Rockhopper Cottage is a beautiful first floor 2-bedroom maisonette holiday cottage on the charming Mount Pleasant Road in Brixham, Devon. You'll find it a real home from home, 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. On the way back home, the hills are steep to climb, but the views are worth it!

Brixham is teeming with lovely bars, cafés, restaurants and pubs - it's a great, fun place to go out! There's 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 and dolphins! Paignton and Torquay, Dartmouth and Kingswear, Totnes and Newton Abbot are all a short drive away. The town hosts some famous events such as the Pirate Festival and Seafood Feast.

We offer very 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. Likewise our stairwell is made from beautiful quarry stone. You really do have the feeling that Rockhopper was carved out of rock!

Rockhopper new cladding, 2022 - 1_edited
Rockhopper garden and decking.jpeg


The outside area is a work in progress, and on target to be completed by summer 2023...  It does offer:

  • A seating area on the decking outside the back door, with security light

  • Steps down to the narrow 60-foot+ garden

  • Table and chairs on the raised decking at the end of the garden. Nice evening sun in summer, and we're replacing the poorly furniture in the autumn.

  • Lovely blue cladding added to the rear of the house in autumn 2022 - making the cottage even cosier!


The house is an attractive three-storey stone property. Rockhopper's front door is accessed by a dozen stone steps. There is a key safe with combination lock by the door. 

  • Street parking is available free-of-charge, but this can become limited during the evening, and particularly at peak holiday season. It's usually easy to park further up or down our street.
