Brixham in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... but does have showers and toilets as well as hook-ups. The ground is flat and the whole sheltered by a tall hedge. An easy downhill walk to the town about a mile away, but an uphill hike to walk back. We also stayed once at the Berry Head Hotel, which is situated at the opposite end of Brixham to Torquay and boast wonderful sea views and stunning country paths upto Berry Head around the corner from the hotel. This is an old fashioned hotel, with comfortable traditional style furnishings, pleasant staff, a nice menu and stunning sea views from the restaurant and our room! The lovely things about this hotel is that dogs are welcome, yet i... more

The Place: Brixham, Devon This is a Tourist Information Review HOW DO I QUALIFY TO WRITE THIS REVIEW? I have spent many holidays in Brixham both as a family and a couple, but always with dogs. Long weekends, short weekends, romantic getaways, family holidays, whole weeks, part weeks, high season and off seasons. Even day visits. So, I must like it to keep going back. THE CHARM OF BRIXHAM: Brixham is first and foremost a fishing port, one of the biggest in the British Isles. Which is surpising because the port is small and town seems cosy. Attached to Paignton and ... Read the complete review

We stayed in Brixham for 8 days in august of this year. What a pity about the anti social behaviour displayed by gangs of local younger residents of Brixham. The town main car park seems to be a meeting place for such groups. Who like to congregate there, bad language and behaviour, and youngsters hanging around in cars with their stereos blasting out music. Also climbing onto the roofs of buildings, One of which I think was a public toilet. As Tourists, quite honestly we cant be bothered, we shall not be visiting or spending any more money at Brixham. The Police who turned up Once, didn't address the problem.

On arriving in Brixham you will see that thereís lots of coloured houseís on top of the hillís, itís a bit like Ireland & itís a bit hilly. Brixham is a working port with a marina, & itís not too faraway from where you get dropped off. Brixham is alive with the sounds, scents and tastes of the fishing industry. Here you will discover all the trimmings of luxury boating - Ships Chandler, Marina-side Pub/Restaurant/open-air cafťs, & of course the boats themselves, of all shapes &sizes, mega-yachts & sailing dinghies sharing their berthing spaces in apparent harmony. Fishing boats chug into the harbour in combination with the mega yachts & motor ... Read the complete review

Brixham is a delightful little fishing town, situated in the English Riviera, that is Torbay, Devon. It is a town that I visited often as a child while staying at one of the local holiday camps, and is where my parents now call home. The local name for us tourists is "Grockles", this is a term, not exactly of endearment seeing, but should be seeing as how much we put into their local economy :-). * * * * * * * * * * * * * How to get there * * * * * * * * * * * * * By Train - - - - - - - The nearest mainline train station to Brixham is at Paington, which is about 5 miles away.

At present I live in Paignton, part of Torbay other wise known at the English Riviera. Although I have lived in other places in England I am only a stones though away from the very place I was born namely Brixham, which is also part of Torbay. I love to take a walk around there remembering how it was when I was a child and seeing how much has changed. Brixham is spread over a valley at the bottom of which is the town leading down to the harbour, it now has three inner harbour piers where the fishing boats tie up along side. The third one was only added about thirty years ago, I can remember ... Read the complete review
