Danecroft Brixham

About Us

Danecroft, a delightful 1920’s semi-detached house, traditionally and comfortably furnished is located on the outskirts of Brixham, with off road-parking for two cars. There’s a beautifully tended sunny rear garden which is mostly lawn but guests can also help themselves to the herbs, rhubarb, raspberries and apples if staying in the appropriate season. At the front of the house there are far reaching views to be enjoyed from the twin bedroom and single bedroom over allotments to the sea!

Less than a 5-minute walk from the doorstep will lead to the small shingle beach of Fishcombe Cove, from where guests can enjoy lots of rock pools or just have a drink in the café (please note this café is seasonal). From here one can join the famous South West Coast path and enjoy the stunning scenery that comes with being in an area of outstanding natural beauty. A 10-minute walk (or a short bus ride) in the other direction will lead guests to the centre of Brixham, which is located on the southern tip of Torbay, or The English Riviera as it is better known. The busy fishing town has one of the largest fleets of trawlers in the country and is made up of narrow little streets that wind their way down to the bustling harbour where all of the activity takes place. There are plenty of traditional shops showcasing locally made souvenirs, crafts and foods. One can even take a dip in Shoalstone pool, an outdoor seawater lido, one of only a few left in the country.

Those looking to entertain the family can head to Paignton, home to a selection of attractions including the very popular Paignton Zoo, the Paignton to Dartmouth Steam Railway and Splashdown waterpark. There are also two beautiful national trust properties only a short drive away, Coleton Fishacre with its Arts and Crafts style house and 24 acres of landscaped gardens; and the delightful Greenway House and Gardens, the holiday home of the famous and much-loved author Agatha Christie and her family.
