'Once Upon a Tide' is a charming home-from-home, nestled moments away from the beautiful harbourside of Brixham. You are so close to the historic harbour and all the hustle and bustle of this fabulous fishing town; you can almost touch it.

Brixham is a very special holiday destination in its own right. Fine dining restaurants and traditional fishermen's pubs are plentiful on the harbourside with live music playing in many of them. The local beaches within walking distance are beautiful and a short journey in the car will find you in the heart of some of the most delightful and popular south Devon villages and towns, such as Dartmouth, Totnes, Shaldon and Kingsbridge.

This wonderful home is a great place to relax and unwind with the family, not forgetting the family pooch(es). With a fully enclosed garden and patio-area, dining al fresco is a real treat. For the sunbathers in the party, the raised decked-area with seating is the ideal sun-trap with a lovely glimpse of the bay.

The homely feel of 'Once Upon a Tide' will help you unwind and relax the moment you enter. Park up on your two car private driveway, unload and make yourself at home. Everything about this semi-detached property and its location fits the perfect mould for a stress-free and relaxing coastal holiday.

Lazy days in the sun, harbourside walks or a spot of adventure in the neighbouring towns all awaits at 'Once Upon a Tide'.

Brixham has so much to offer to all generations, all year round. From numerous top-class restaurants to charming and quirky coffee shops, along with the traditional fishermen's watering holes.

Take a meander around the stunning harbour and head to the superb Blue Flag Breakwater beach. This is a fantastic spot for a picnic, followed by a spot of rock pooling along with a healthy helping of ice cream from the beach cafe/kiosk or take a dip in the Shoalstone lido. Walk or drive to Berry Head to get a sight of dolphins and porpoises from the cliffs in the North Fort.

Slightly further afield you have the very popular towns and villages of Torquay, Paignton, Cockington, Totnes, Dartmouth and Salcombe - all of which have something very special to offer. It would be a shame not to visit these beautiful places, so why not venture over to Torquay on the Western Lady ferry or take the 'Round Robin' trip (seasonal) of the bay. Both are fabulous family days out and a great way to explore this part of the world. Starting in Paignton, visiting Dartmouth and Totnes via steam train, river boat and bus is a great way to enjoy these special places without having to worry about traffic, parking or anything bar relaxing and enjoying yourself.

However, if a day building sandcastles sounds more appealing, the extremely popular sandy beach of Broadsands is a short car journey away.

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 family day out.

All in all, this stunning property and fabulous location will leave you wanting to return time after time.
