Where is Brixham Located?

Brixham is a historic fishing town located on the south coast in the district of Torbay and the county of Devon.

Its close proximity to neighbouring towns of Torquay and Paignton, as well as many other locations on the South Devon coast, make it the perfect base for exploring the English Riviera.

What To Do in Brixham on a Romantic Holiday

Time to Relax

Switching off isn’t easy but we’re here to help. Reconnect and recharge away from the usual hustle and bustle of everyday life with slow, lazy mornings and a delicious breakfast served in our hotel restaurant.

After a lovely lie-in, enjoy a relaxing stroll around the harbour, soak in the fresh sea air, or spend the day at the beach. Perhaps take a wander to one of our top-rated coffee spots in Brixham, before a facial or massage at one of the local beauty salons.

If you’re a big foodie then Brixham is the place for you. Restaurants and bars are plentiful with many located just a stone’s throw from The Quayside Hotel. And not to mention we have our own restaurant right here at the Quayside serving daily fish specials and traditional British dishes.

Enjoy a delicious brunch, homemade afternoon tea at a cafe, freshly caught fish and chips, or savour yourself for a three-course meal on the harbourside.

For some couples, nature is the perfect way to unwind, reconnect and enjoy time together in the great outdoors. 

Perhaps a boat ride whilst you soak up the breathtaking views of Torbay and the English Riviera, a blustery walk around the fishing town or a picnic admiring the stunning coastal scenery. 

Grab your partner and lose yourself in all Brixham naturally has to offer.

Adventure Lovers

A slower-paced holiday may not be for you, and if you’re searching for adrenaline-fuelled adventures to get your heart rate going, then Brixham will not disappoint.

Jump into the open sea as one and let the cold water refresh you as you connect with the great outdoors.
