Stayed at The Lofty Limpet

We had an amazing stay here. Kates place is clean, cosy and stylish buzzing with Brixham charm. Beds were extremely comfy, all aspects were clean and it’s in a perfect location (5 mins walk from the town). Highly recommended and would love to return.

Stayed at The Seadog

Great location with amazing views

Stayed at The Lofty Limpet

We had a lovely stay at the Lofty Limpet. Great communication, a lot of information given in the welcome pack, very clean and a good location for a walk into town. We particularly enjoyed the outside space and BBQ in the sun. Thank you!

Stayed at Lofty Limpet

Lovely clean modern flat, the flat has all of the amenities you could dream of, games room downstairs, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer etc. Also a lovely sea view to wake up to in the morning.

Stayed at High Hopes

Stunning views and the pace was nothing short of lovely. 

Stayed at The Seadog

Great stay at saltwater escapes. Amazing location with the luxury of having an outdoor seating space and a bbq for nights when we didn’t want to eat out. Host is quick to respond to any issues and concerns which was also fantastic. 

Stayed at High Hopes

Had a lovely stay at High Hopes, beautiful view over Brixham Harbour on the terrace. Great communication from the host no issues. Clean and tidy when we arrived with great instructions on how to reach the property with great recommendations of places to go visit and places to go and eat in the area.

Stayed at The Drunken Sailor

Brilliant stay. Thank you.

Stayed at High Hopes

Had a great 7 days here in August. Fab location and views. Jamie very good host, milk and prosecco and choc biscuit essentials awaited our arrival ! Tv broke while we were watching and he replaced next day. As access quite steep and narrow steps would suggest packing smaller bags rather than a suitcase. Seagulls are very noisy but earplugs worked. Would definitely go back and recommend.

Stayed at High Hopes

Totally loved our stay here. Excellent location. Beautiful views of the harbour. Relaxing break like no other. Handy for shops and restaurants. Balcony to die for and lovely bbq. X

Stayed at Avocet 2

The apartment is beautifully situated, the balcony is lovely to sit out on, watching the sea, boats, occasional seal and luckily for us, dolphins too! It is a peaceful spot, close to lovely walks and Churston Cove which is a great spot for swimming. Close enough to Brixham for a short stroll in too. The apartment was well decorated and clean, it had all the amenities we needed and provided us with a much needed and enjoyed holiday. Gorgeous.

Stayed at Avocet 2

Just returned from a family stay at Avocet 2, it’s a hidden gem with fantastic views and short walk into the harbour. There’s a friendly seal that visits the coves daily, kids loved it! It’s our second visit and we will definitely return again - Thank you Saltwater escapes!

Stayed at The Drunken Sailor

We stayed in The Drunken Sailor for a week and had the best time ever! After a couple of teething problems which were swiftly rectified by Kate and her team we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is centrally located for the town and for fishcombe cove. Best of all it's next door to definitely the best pub in Brixham,The Manor. Brixham is a truly amazing place and we hope to return to The Drunken Sailor next year. Thank you so much for looking after us Saltwater Escapes!

Stayed at The Drunken Sailor

We booked up for the week before lock down, but the house was nice and clean the bed I had was comfy and the others said the same about the beds they had. Would use it again no problem

Stayed at High Hopes

Thank you for having us stay - we loved your beautiful home. It is in an incredible location with stunning views over the harbour. Was challenging to find but Kate was really helpful calling me to talk through how to find it and park. We would 100 percent recommend and love to come back.

Stayed at The Seadog

Myself and my daughter have stayed at The Seadog twice now and absolutely loved every minute. The cottage is clean and tidy and has amazing views. It is quiet and peaceful of an evening and a very short walk to all local amenities and the harbour. Fantastic restaurants near by and the local beaches are beautiful. We are due to stay at The Drunken Sailor between Christmas and New Year and are counting down the days. Kate and Jamie are extremely helpful and go out of their way to make your stay memorable and as relaxed as possible.

Stayed at Avocet 2

We had the most amazing holiday in Brixham with Saltwater Escapes in November 2019 that we immediately wanted to go again! We booked last minute & stayed in Avocet 2 the Cove. It was as good as & more than the description. First class accommodation, beautifully decorated & clean, fully equipped with a very much appreciated welcome pack! Unfortunately COVID changed our immediate plans to rebook but I have recently been looking at future availability on all of Saltwater’s properties to let.... my aim is to actually stay in every one of them! The ease of booking, the personal contact & the fantastic properties make you want to try them all, Can’t wait to go again! Thank you Jamie & Kate... really hope to be visiting one of your properties again very soon. Sue & Rob Holloway

Stayed at High Hopes

Great holiday rentals, very helpful and attentive hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Recommend!

Stayed at High Hopes

I had a wonderful stay with my two kids in February. The flat is very comfortable and homely, a wonderful location right by the sea. Very easy to check in and out and very peaceful.

Amazing week staying at The Sea Dog Fisherman’s cottage at Brixham. 5* accommodation, perfect spot for the Harbour (2min walk) and the view was the icing on the cake! Definitely would recommend, perfect for families or couples. It’s an ideal spot for visiting the local beaches and we loved the beach hut at Broadsands Beach, we’ll equipped for a great day out.

Stayed at High Hopes

Lovely, well situated property in the heart of the town. Everything that you need in the property, with handy car parking pass allowing you to park in a variety of car parks in the area. Great views out the front from both the lounge and garden, and can easily lose yourself for hours watching the comings and goings.

Stayed at The Seadog

The seaviews house of Jamie and Kate (The Seadog Cottage) makes you want to buy it right away (whether you can or not!) - the town, sea and sunsets from your windows; spacious, light, airy, clean, stylish, summery ... I'd say it's a healing and soothing place too. I was finishing a piece of writing, so it's perfect for creative solitude, but it's in many ways a shame not to use the 3 bedrooms to maximum capacity! It's excellently equipped - has all you would need for a longer stay as well, including quite a collection of pots, pans and trays for cooking, if restaurants in social distancing times lose their appeal. The town is at your doorstep in one direction and the Coast Path in the other. It's such a beautiful section of the Coast Path. Jamie was most helpful, responsive and accommodating.A truly wonderful place to escape and recharge the batteries.

Stay in March, Avocet 2

Great apartment with fantastic views across the bay. Well equipped And furnished with everything you need for an enjoyable holiday. Great location the walk into Brixham is an easy walk through the woods. Would highly recommend will be back in the future.

Stayed at The Drunken Sailor

A beautifully situated house with the most amazing views , and only a short walk to town. The surrounding coastal walks are also stunning. We found the house spacious and comfortable , with everything needed in the kitchen, a warm fire in the living room and a sun deck for the obligatory evening beer. Netflix and very fast WiFi in the house and we found the house quiet and peaceful for a good nights sleep. Would highly recommend.

Invited saltwater escapes to holiday let our house, they are lovely people and when we are ready will definitely use them to let our property, they are local to Brixham and care very much about their business

Stayed at High Hopes

Great place, great location! Nice little touches with pint of milk in the fridge and some chocolate fingers! Double bed was super comfy! Views wee stunning! Would stay again. 

Stayed at The Seadog

We arrived late at night, so to draw the curtains to that view on the next morning was just incredible! Everything you may need for a short break or longer stay had been taken into account by your wonderful hosts Kate and Jamie. Will definitely be back, thank you! Robyn xx

Stayed at Avocet 2

This is a lovely small apartment ideal for me and my husband and 2 year old son. Beautiful views over the sea and a great location.

Stayed at Avocet 2

Fabulous location, clean and tidy, with all necessities. Thank you for the thoughtful welcome basket! Lovely walks - Berry Head is an amazing walk with fantastic views. Really relaxing stay - would definitely recommend and come back!

Stayed at Avocet 2

Thank you for the welcome basket. We had the relaxing getaway that our family needed in such a warm and cosy house. Very tidy with all the things necessary, so good that we had to push ourselves out for a walk instead of staying indoors. Every morning waking up to a sea scenery that's so good. It should be fantastic in the spring or autumn when we plan to return here. 

Stayed at The Drunken Sailor

A great selection of properties, set in a beautiful location. Highly recommended.

New Year at High Hopes

We have just returned from a 3 night stay in High Hopes over the New Year. The accommodation was superb, over and above what we expected. The beds were extremely comfortable with lovely crisp white bedding. The bathrooms were clean and the towels soft and fluffy. The lounge, kitchen area was perfect with a wonderful view of Brixham harbour. We were very happy to just sit and relax looking out the window. The steps leading down to the property are extremely steep and narrow and for some people could be a challenge but once inside the property is perfect. If you're looking for a two bedroom property in Brixham this is definitely the one. 

Stayed at Avocet 2

This apartment is spectacular! Incredible value for such an incredible position. I can't wait to book again!

Stayed at The Seadog

Great find in Brixham, close to town centre, with amazing views, very clean, comfortable and cosy, would definitely recommend.

Stayed at The Seadog

If you love Brixham and the harbour then stay at The Seadog, the view from the front window is amazing. yes its hilly and there is a lot of steps. parking is a bit tight, but my word its worth it. House is lovely, clean, warm and cozy. 5 adults stayed and there is more then enough room. Lovely welcome hamper, everything you need in the kitchen. Thank you Saltwater Escapes for a wonderful christmas :-)

Stayed at High Hopes

What a fantastic place to stay. From the moment we opened the gate to the property - we were hit with the wow factor. On entering the property - we had many wow moments, we were the first in after the renovation, which is fabulous, then we were hit with the amazing view from the lounge. It's gorgeous! We spent our entire weekend, watching the view and the goings on in the harbour. Jamie the owner was brilliant, we've staying in many self catering properties and he was by far one of the best owners we've dealt with, fast, courteous and very helpful. All round brilliant stay, with the bonus of being dog friendly too. We've just booked again for next year! Thank you

Stayed at Avocet 2

Drunken sailor is beautifully situated just out of town enough. With a fab pub next door. Well equipped place with thoughtful extra touches. Fantastic hosts! Thank you for having us

Stayed at High Hopes

Idyllic cottage overlooking the harbour which was a lot more spacious than we expected. Centrally located and great host. Highly recommend.

Stayed at Avocet 2

Stunning uninterrupted views of beautiful Fishcombe bay were the highlight for us! The location was amazing, overlooking the water and within a short walk of two little coves. It was tricky to walk to the harbour with prams due to the absence of pavements, tight corners with difficult visibility and some very steep hills and steps. That was ok for us, but others may prefer just to drive and try and park. The apartment was a modern, well equipped and cosy space. The downside was some more essential items such as cooking oil and salt and pepper etc were missing, and the space was on the compact side (the bedroom storage is tight for a family of 4, and the double bed was on the small side). Overall a great place to stay that just misses some minor things.

Stayed at Avocet 2

Thank you for a lovely stay, we found the apartment very cosy and the views are just stunning & very relaxing. It’s a Nice walk into town not too far and we liked the walk to berry head, the guardhouse cafe we would recommend. We would definitely recommend the apartment to anyone. Just one thing to note; the hamper pack was a lovely gesture, the only thing I would maybe suggest is coffee & sugar to be left in little pots too. Many thanks again for our stay.

Stayed at Avocet 2

Amazing view on the sea, warm welcome with a Cream Tea arrangement (scones, fresh strawberries...), short walk to Brixham, good parking, easy check in, everything was fine and well equipped. Good information in advance for restaurants, supermarkets..., nice caves for swimming with a beach café,

Stayed at The Seadog

Lovely seaside house with great views across Brixham.

Review

We had a wonderful break at the apartment. The view & location are fantastic, absolutely unbeatable! The apartment was well presented and well equipped, on a site which is peaceful and looks well maintained generally. We found 3 coves within easy walking distance although some of the paths are steep in places, and it's also only about 15-20 minutes walk from the harbour. The welcome pack of scones etc was a lovely surprise and we wouldn't hesitate to visit again or recommend this apartment.

Stayed at The Drunken Sailor

Totally amazing place, Kate and Jamie were great, anything we need to know, they was there!!! Defo be visiting again.... thank you so much

Review

Just packing up from a great week in Brixham at the Seadog. The house is in an excellent location a few minutes from centre of town but this is a few minutes of steps so take this into account when booking. The cottage is lovely and furnished well and an absolute stunning view. We did have some issues during the week which were dealt with quickly by Kate and the team. We would happily stay here again.

Stayed at The Seadog

This is such a lovely house, with stunning views over the harbour.

Stayed at The Drunken Sailor

We had a really great time at the Drunken Sailor it had everything we needed for our little break. The welcome basket was lovely and sitting in the garden watching the birds was so relaxing. Perfect location for exploring Brixham!

Stayed at The Seadog

Excellent accommodation within the heart of Brixham with outstanding views. Clean and spacious for a small cottage.

Review

We have just returned from a short break to The Drunken Sailor. What a beautiful little cottage situated right near the harbour of Brixham. Immaculately clean and they have literally thought of everything. Lovely little touches such as bath robes and a good quality welcome pack. Excellent value for money. Kate could not have done anymore to make our stay perfect. I would not hesitate to recommend Saltwater Escapes. I will most definitely be returning. Rob, Lynn and Baxter the dog

Just spent a wonderful two weeks in Brixham staying at Drunken Sailor cottage. The cottage was clean and very welcoming, comfortable and close to all amenities. The welcoming pack was thoughtful and enjoyable. We would certainly recommend staying at Drunken Sailor and will definitely be back later in the year.

Just got back from an amazing stay at The Seadog Brixham. Fabulous cottage, clean, bright, spacious and in a fab location. Beautiful beaches and harbour. Our welcome hamper was much appreciated. We will definitely be back again for another stay or two or three!!! Kate gave fabulous information to make sure we had the best possible holiday. I have two very tired puppies and a very sleepy little girl! Thank you for all that you did to ensure we have a comfortable and welcome stay.

Review

Just back from a wonderful 5 days at the Seadog , it’s a typical fisherman’s cottage in beautiful Brixham .the cottage is immaculate , modern and has all amenities and gadgets u will need with the bonus of a beach hut at the family friendly broadsands beach (10min drive ). The views from the front of cottage are wonderful , as is the surrounding area , Dartmouth is a must ! Would not hesitate to recommend the Seadog and I’m sure we will revisit in the future. Bonus was a lovely welcome pack left for us .
