This superb thatched cottage is on the outskirts of the Devon harbour town of Brixham and can sleep eight people in four bedrooms.

Hearthstone East Cottage is a wonderful historic thatched cottage with masses of traditional features on the edge of the Devon seaside town of Brixham. The cottage sleeps eight people in two double bedrooms (one with an en-suite shower), two twin rooms and a family bathroom. On the ground floor are a fitted kitchen and a characterful sitting room with an open fire.

Outside is off road parking for two cars and a lawned garden with a patio and outdoor furniture. Just over a mile from the harbour and the town centre, Hearthstone East Cottage is a superb cottage for a memorable break in Devon.

What a disappointment
This cottage looked fantastic on the Sykes website, however, it is not a four star residence at all. There is one full (tiny) bathroom, a shower in a cupboard in a bedroom and a shower in the utility with a toilet off the kitchen. There is insufficient room for a proper hand basin in this toilet so the owners have gouged out the wall and put a tiny sink in there with a pipe coming down the wall with a stop cock on it for cold water only. Luckily only my husband and I together with my brother and his wife were staying for the week. It was the most inconvenient property I have ever stayed in. The garden was a mess with very tall grass and uneven and loose paving with extremely steep steps down into a tiny courtyard where there was a derelict patio table and chairs. The side gate into the garden (only level entry) was locked and could not therefore be used. Shabby chic this is not. Avoid if you don't want to be getting up in the night and having to negotiate steps. Seriously unsuitable for children and I was pleased the grandchildren were not with us.
