Brixham is perched above Torbay, and Berry Head National Nature Reserve, with lovely rural and clifftop walks, is on the edge of the town. You will also find Berry Head Cottage here, one of two late 19th Century cottages built as mirror images. The gardens (accessed by stone steps) are lovely – a haven for wild birds – with lawns, a little pond, two patios (one with glimpses of the sea) and more stone steps going up to hidden terraces high above the cottage. The accommodation includes a cosy sitting-room and separate dining-room and, ideal for the elderly, a ground floor en suite bedroom. Just over a mile from the bustle of the busy harbour, Berry Head Cottage is a real gem.
