About York Lodge West

York Lodge West boasts a fantastic location and incredible views of Torbay and Lyme Bay from an elevated position near Berry Head in Brixham. It has three large bedrooms that can sleep up to six people, and lots of room for socialising indoors and outside, so it is ideal for families or friends. The owner's choice of furnishings makes it feel like a welcoming home-away-from-home, helping guests to relax and settle in immediately.

Brixham is such a great choice for a holiday at any time of the year, not only in the summer. The English Riviera benefits from a mild, sunny climate, so it's almost always a good day for the beach, and it doesn't get the high number of visitors that can make nearby Paignton and Torquay feel a bit crowded at the height of the summer. From the house, you can walk around beautiful Berry Head Nature Reserve, admiring panoramic views over the English Channel. Breakwater Beach and the Shoalstone swimming pool - an outdoor seawater pool - are family-friendly with excellent amenities. Alternatively, drive, cycle or walk (via the South West Coastal Path) the two miles to Broadsands Beach, or nearby Fishcombe, Elberry or Churston coves.

Local attractions are plentiful and include the Golden Hind, the Western Lady Ferry to Torquay, Kents Cavern, Paignton Zoo, and Splashdown Quaywest. Explore via the South West Coast Path and the Dartmouth Steam Railway, wander around stately homes like Coleton Fishacre or Greenway, or shop browse the shops in Totnes and Dartmouth. Guests can play golf, sail along the River Dart or marvel at the tiny details in the Model Village. The English Riviera also has an excellent calendar of festivals, markets and other events, so check before you travel to see what's on.

As a holiday destination, Brixham appeals to everyone from young children to grandparents, from families to couples and friends. There is always something fun to do, a fantastic array of places to eat and drink, beautiful beaches and stunning views.
