Brixham ~

Famous for its Napoleonic connections:

Brixham is primarily a fishing port within Torbay and has a long and rich history. In the lee of Berry Head, famous for its Napoleonic connections, its lighthouse and magnificent limestone cliffs, Brixham remains a popular resort with a rich maritime history and plenty of activities for the young and old alike.

A Royal Estate:

Berry Head was a promontory fortress and hospital constructed in the Napoleonic period, but situated on much earlier settlers remains. These earthworks were probably of from the Early Iron Age. The Berry Head earthworks, pottery, and coins suggest a late Celtic trading settlement, persisting into Roman times.

Palaeolithic man, may also have resided in Brixham, with evidence of occupation in the "Windmill Cave". Brixham was originally a royal estate in Saxon times, pre-conquest (1066) and stretched as far as Kingswear and Galmpton. (It is thought that the name "Brixham" probably came from Brioc's village . Brioc was an old English personal name and ham is an ancient term for village.

Brixham Harbour a famous fishing port:

Brixham is more famous as a fishing port, still active and producing a good catches daily. Originally competing with Torquay and Paignton, it eventually dominated and remained the only active port. In the 1800's as many as 250 vessels fished out of Brixham, from large trawlers to inshore boats, employing over 1,500 people.

The fishing industry all but collapsed at the end of the second world war. The old harbour originally nestled in central lower part of the town, with natural protection, has been replaced and protected by the new harbour and eventual breakwater.

The Area ~

There are 22 miles of coastline, cliffs, coves and beaches and walks to rival any in the South West of England, with a climate that belongs somewhere much further south. There are opportunities for surfing, safe swimming, diving, sailing, angling and wonderful opportunities to study the natural wildlife at your leisure.

Stunning views are to be seen just about every where across Torbay, out over the English Channel , along the 40 miles of Lyme Bay to Portland Bill or inland towards the Ten Tors Dartmoor. Shaldon and Teigmouth are ideal bases from which to visit Torquay, Dartmouth, Totnes, Exeter and Plymouth, all of which are only a few miles distant.

The coastal scenery also includes reed beds, sand dunes, shingle ridges, mud flats, salt marshes, and the freshwater lake of Slapton Ley National Nature Reserve. This variety provides habitat for a diverse range of wildlife. The South West Coast Path National Trail running along the whole stretch of heritage coast, provides access to spectacular scenery, long views across bays and the English Channel, interesting beaches, and a scattering of coastal villages & historic towns such as Salcombe & Dartmouth.

Further afield guests are within easy driving distance of discovering the Dartmoor National Park or to enjoy an afternoon visiting one of the 40+ National Trust attractions that are awaiting you in beautiful Devon!

Easy access to Paignton, Torquay, Dartmouth by Boat or car.

Review by Will, Kate and Babs (the hyper Collie) from Wiltshire: "A lovely week even though the weather has not been on our side! We have had some great days out, using the steam train to Dartmouth and river cruise- make sure you go in good weather! We also did the south coast trail from Kingswear to Brixham (12 Miles) not for the faint hearted but stunning scenery and we managed to get the collie tired! Fab dog friendly eats: Churston Manor for 'posh' night and the Manor Inn for 'pub grub'. Thank you for letting us stay in your your lovely cosy cottage!"
