Stylish renovated cottage situated in the highly sought-after harbour bowl of Brixham, with wonderful views of the harbour, Oyster Catcher Cottage is a charming period cottage located in one of this bustling fishing town’s prettiest streets. Just a short walk to the harbour front, and a stone's throw from all the amenities of the town, Oyster Catcher Cottage makes a fantastic base for exploring Brixham and South Devon.

Having  undergone a smart renovation throughout, completed in November 2021, the unique charm of this property begins, quite literally, at the front door. Set into the striking sky-blue façade of this pretty cottage is the distinctive period door with feature porthole, and the character continues inside in the charming living space where you will find a log burner for cosy evenings, a feature cast iron range, beamed ceilings and exposed stone walling.


The cottage is arranged over 3 levels and stairs take you up to the first floor to the kitchen and an open plan Dining/Living room from which there are lovely views over the rooftops to the inner and outer harbours. The town takes on a different character as the sun sets and the colourful cottages light up, so relax and enjoy the evening views from this sociable space after a day exploring.

The well-equipped kitchen offers the perfect flexibility for self-catering. Brixham is a food lovers' paradise, and you will be spoilt for choice for places to eat out from morning to night. Start your day off with a short saunter down to Brixham’s artisan quarter, “Middle Street”, brimming with independent coffee shops, artisan bakeries and cafés, then browse among the creative retailers including some of the town’s artists and photographers. For culinary enthusiasts, why not pick up some fresh fish straight off one of the local day boats to prepare back in the cottage and then enjoy an after dinner drink in the courtyard garden which can be accessed from the kitchen.


The bedrooms are located on the second floor of the cottage with the master bedroom enjoying magnificent views over the harbour and across the marina to the Breakwater.


The second bedroom is fitted with bespoke sized built-in bunk beds recommended for children or adults under 5'6".
