Plenty of space in house. Very nice balcony to sit look at glorious view.

May 2018

A nice homely house with great views over the bay. Walk to the beach was fairly short but steep so quite tiring.

November 2017

The view was to die for and one could happily look out at the ever changing bay for hours. It was very homely and well equipped. The main bedroom was spacious with an extremely comfortable king size bed.

Had an excellent holiday the location was fantastic as was the cleanliness of the cottage. Our little Westie had a great holiday . Wonderful place can't fault it

Our overall thoughts on this house is the reason it rents is because of the view which is beatiful but one needs more than a view to enjoy a holiday especially if the weather is bad. Some refurbishment of this property is needed to bring it up to an acceptable rental standard. I should add that in the past ten years we have rented a number of properties, especially on the Isle of Wight, so are up to date with rental standards.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review the house. As you know from our conversations, we're very grateful for your thoughts which have been shared with the owners. The property is always very busy through the summer but over the quieter winter months the owners always paint and refresh the interior and carry out any maintenance work that is necessary. We are glad you enjoyed that fantastic view and had the bonus of wonderful weather too. Tanya, Customer Support

The Lookout is aptly named as the views over Torbay are absolutely stunning.It is a gem of a self catering establishment and must rank as one of the best in Brixham.We arrived and were greeted with a bottle of cava,a box of Devon Fudge and a large quantity of tea and coffee sachets and fresh milk.The house is extremely clean and well furnished which are comfortable and do not show the usual wear and tear typical of most self catering accommodations.

The house is in a lovely quiet area with fantastic views we love that's why we go there at least 3 times a year

September 2016

August 2016

Fantastic weeks holiday in a lovely house in a fabulous setting. Would strongly recommend and definitely plan to return at some point.

Well equipped, dog friendly house with a spectacular view of the bay in a very quiet and friendly neighborhood of Brixham, close to Berry Head. The town centre offers a lot of restaurants, pubs and all sorts of shops for the daily supply. The position close to the Berry Head area invites to walks and hikes.

The Lookout is a wonderful property, made even more so by the exceptional views. The property is comfortable and well equipped. It's location to the bustling town and harbor means the need to drive everywhere is unnecessary, adding to a more relaxed holiday. In this property you wake up to views of the sea from the master bedroom through wall to wall Windows. I spent many a happy moment sitting on the balcony watching the fishing boats coming and going. The harbor town has wonderful cafes, restaurants and pubs. It is a busy and bustling town with lots of interest. A particular liking is the sign at one of the fish and chip shops...tomorrow's fish are still in the sea. It is a dog friendly property and our dogs loved it.

April 2016

Lovely house well set out really comfortable

March 2016

A beautifully clean cottage. Quiet and peaceful location. Marvellous views. We couldn't ask for a better property in Brixham. Super coastal walks on hand which was great for the dog.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the property. After visiting torbay and the brixham area regularly this was easily our favourite place to stay. Clean and containing all the utensils you would need, it has a fantastic view of the harbour and is only a short walk to the various shops & restaurants. Would recommend to all and will certainly revisit!
