Located in the heart of Brixham, 1 Pump Street Mews, a bright and airy apartment, provides a great base to return to after a day exploring or relaxing in this spectacular part of the world. Brixham is an extremely charming town, with its award-winning fish and chip shops and bustling harbour; you will immediately fall in love with the town's traditional feel. However, Brixham doesn't just offer the hustle and bustle of a thriving fishing town, it is rapidly embracing fine cuisine with a fantastic choice of luxury restaurants and an ever-growing number of superb wine and cocktail bars – this endearing town has something for everyone. Why not step back in time with a tour of the Golden Hind, Sir Francis Drake's ship dating back to 1588, or take a walk along the Buccaneers Way past some of Brixham's most historic buildings and landmarks. Alternatively, perhaps a day spent on the Blue Flag breakwater beach is more your idea of fun, followed by a swim in the popular Shoalstone sea water swimming pool. The central location of this first floor apartment (accessed by 17 steps) adds to that 'stress-free' feeling, as everything you need is literally a stone's throw away. The high street is so close that you can fling open the bedroom balcony doors and watch the world meandering by, whilst the younger members of the party entertain themselves with their favourite televisions shows found on the Sky family channel – peace and quiet if only for ten minutes!
To give you extra peace of mind, 1 Pump Street Mews is within a secure, gated development which also operates video intercom access. So, after a fun-filled day of exploring, this super apartment offers a very safe base to return to and cosy down for the evening. It would be a shame to not visit the beautiful neighbouring villages and towns so why not venture over to Torquay on the Western Lady ferry, or take the 'Round Robin' trip of the bay, starting in Paignton, visiting Dartmouth and Totnes via steam train, river boat and bus – a fabulous way to enjoy these special places without having to worry about traffic, parking or anything bar relaxing and enjoying yourself. If a day on the beach sounds more appealing, the extremely popular sandy beach of Broadsands is a short car journey away and for the little ones you have Paignton Zoo, River Dart Country Park, Pennywell Farm and Woodlands Family Theme Park within easy reach, all guaranteed to provide that fun-packed day out for all ages. As the Owners appreciate that parking in Brixham is an essential part of any holiday, you have full and private access to No.9 space on The Quay. This reserved parking spot is only a five minute stroll around the harbour from your apartment, making parking up and wandering back to 1 Pump Street Mews a pleasure.
