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.

Fabulous holiday in picturesque scenery

  • 5 of 5

Property is quirky, beautiful and just what we needed for a restful holiday. The property is very clean and kept to a high standard, and has all the facilities stated and more. Local shops and places to eat just around the corner, and the views from every window outstanding. I love walking, there are lots of walks up and around Brixham, with plenty to shoal beach for paddling, and breakwater for views. The owner from booking provides an excellent service, updating regularly and I received a welcome message when arriving there. Couldn't ask for anymore, I would definitely recommend Kippy's Cottage to family and friends, excellent value for money.

Absolutely beautiful cottage to stay in.

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with Kippy's cottage the moment we walked through the door - cannot fault anything about it.

Kippy's was spotlessly clean and the kitchen well equipped, with everything you needed to make your own meals if you want. The decor is very tasteful and in keeping with the coastal theme.

The garden, despite being a bit of a hike up the steps behind the house is beautiful, offering stunning views of the town, harbour

and beyond. A perfect place to sit with an early morning coffee or a chilled drink in the evening.

Location wise we found it was perfect for our needs, plenty of places to walk and local restaurants and shops are all closeby.

In summary this is a lovely place to stay and we all enjoyed our stay immensely. We will definitely return!

The location is perfect to see the hustle and bustle of harbour life and accessing the town.

Enjoyable stay ...Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Had an enjoyable stay at this lovely cottage..The view from the bay window and the top of the garden are wonderful..it was lovely sitting at the top of the garden having a drink and enjoying the views. The cottage is very well equipped with nice furnishings. From Brixham you can catch the ferry to Dartmouth which is a very enjoyable trip, and buses run frequently to Paignton and Torquay.Weather was great on top of everything else...couldn't have asked for any more. Can definitely recommend and hope to return again in the future.

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

Location

Coast/Beach:

Kippy's Cottage overlooks Brixham habour. It is a 12 minute walk to the marina and nearest beach - Breakwater - (a Blue Flag beach along with 6 others in Torbay) and a few more minutes to the next - Shoalstone - which has a large outdoor seawater pool heated naturally with an extensive sunbathing area. Shoalstone is also excellent for rock pooling and snorkelling and sometimes occupied by local seals.

Travel:

Nearest airport is Exeter.

Distances:

It's right in the town! A dedicated car parking space is available in the car park immediately below the house (2 mins away)next to the harbour wall on the Southern Quay. Details will be provided on booking.

Further Details:

Both Paignton and Torquay are a short drive away, Babbacombe is a bit further on with its model village. Also nearby, is the delightful town of Dartmouth which can be accessed via two river Dart ferries from the Kingswear side, or road via Totnes. Further on again, is Blackpool Sands, a marvellous beach, and on again is Slapton Sands, with its lagoon where the Normandy landings were rehearsed in WW2. To the north is Dartmoor with its stunning scenery and famous tors. The historic port of Plymouth is about 30 miles west with Plymouth Hoe, Devonport naval dockyard and its extensive range of shops.
