The popular resort town of Brixham is a perfect fusion of old and new, where the modern marina, shops and restaurants sit alongside the quaint fishing harbour and you can watch the trawlers landing their catch. On the edge of Brixham is Shoalstone Beach, home to an outdoor seawater swimming pool. A short stroll up the hill from the harbour, you'll find the aptly named Hidden Treasure. This recently renovated, ground floor holiday apartment is a cosy retreat for two with an outside sitting area and within walking distance of the town. The compact kitchen with harbour views is perfect for simple meals but with so many restaurants to choose from you may never tire of eating out.
