About william spurway

My grandfather bought this cottage just after WWII to retire to but was unable to live his dream due to illness. The cottage is named after him; Kippy was his nickname as had the knack of being able to grab short kips throughout the day. We have kept in the family ever since and now four generations have enjoyed family holidays there. Over that time the cottage has been rented out for holiday lets to.

Spring,Summer breaks are Saturday to Saturday.

Winter breaks are optional starting @ £342 for four persons.

The cottage overlooks the harbour from the south side and it's view from there is excellent.

You can sit in the front sitting room window and watch all that is going on if that takes your fancy and just relax with a good drink,if the weather is kind the garden has been revitalized it enables you to sit and enjoy the whole atmosphere of Brixham. A bracing walk out along the Breakwater is also an option as is a slightly longer saunter up to Berry Head with its fort and Coast Guard station with the lighthouse.Rest your driving and use the ferry,s or even the steam train to visit Dartmouth or Torquay !

Brilliant location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely large bedrooms, great views and excellent location. Even in February the terrace garden was tempting with its views of the harbour - would be perfect in the summer.

Superb cottage in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We chose Kippy's as our location for a short 4 night stay at the end of September. The location is perfect with great views over the harbour from the living room and main bedrooms, it was great to be able to sit in the comfy window seats and watch the world go by with a cup of tea, a coffee and a glas of wine in the evening. Parking is in a designated bay on the quayside, easily accessible via the shallow steps just 15m from the front door. The cottage itself and garden terrace(s) is immaculate and we would definitely love to be able to stay again. Thoroughly recommended. Kevin & Sandra from Frome, Somerset

Memories of a fabulous week at Kippy's Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Kippy’s is a real treasure. We loved the cottage and the views from the front windows are outstanding. From the moment we stepped into Kippy’s it felt like home from home. Loved the decor too - so cool and relaxing.

The cottage was so fresh and clean, and the welcome pack was just what we needed after our journey. I was well ready for a cuppa!

An email from the owners on our arrival wishing us a good holiday was a special touch.

The grandchildren had a great holiday and enjoyed catching crabs at the harbour. They also loved the cottage and all the nooks and crannies to explore. It was so convenient for us and Brixham itself is a beautiful place. All the arrangements for the cottage were very smooth and we had no problems at all. I even enjoyed cooking in the beautiful and well equipped kitchen!!!!!

We were all sorry to leave and I hope that we will have the opportunity to visit again sometime.

Thank you Kippy's for a wonderful and memorable holiday!

Wonderful week in Kippy's Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic week in Brixham. The cottage is well equipped, with everything you need and very welcoming. Lots of space, and a comfy setting for our holiday. Love watching the harbour from the bay window in the lounge. The garden is beautiful too, after a climb up the steps, a beautiful view is revealed and a lovely sun trap to watch the world go by. Sad to leave will be back next year.

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Kippys Cottage is a beautiful well kept cottage overlooking Brixham harbour. Splendid views and immaculately kept this is a truely lovely house to stay in. Bottle of wine on chill awaited us upon arrival. The only suggestion would be that it would be nice to have wifi but sometimes it's nice to get away from the technological age for a week :O) very well recommended
