Kippy's Cottage - Now offering short breaks!

Short breaks can be so revitalising and a chance to reconnect with family members. Kippy's Cottage, Devon now offers short breaks so why not take advantage of this and book a short break out of high season and make the most of opportunity to holiday while it is quiet!

A self catering holiday by the sea!

Ahoy there! Brixham, Devon is a bustling seaside town with a large harbour. Kippy's Cottage can be found overlooking the harbour and was once a fishermans cottage. Brixham has a long history as a port and for fishing. Indeed William of Orange landed here in 1688 and there are some Dutch influences in architechure in the surrounding area. 

Kippy's Cottage is an ideal destination for a romantic break in winter, the living area overlooks the harbour and guests are only a few minutes walk to the shops and beach. Long walks followed by a relaxing evening reading a good book are a perfect way to spend your days. Venture a little further and explore local attractions such as Exeter where you will find a good range of shops as well as great resturants and nightlife. 

If you have young children and are able to take a break outside of the school holiday why not book a few days at Kippy's! Sleeping 7 people in total Kippy's has room for a small family or even a family and grandparents too! Go crabbing on the harbour - careful, you'll find it strangly addictive! Have a few cream teas in the wonderful assortment of coffee shops most of which are independently run. Wear little ones out with a bracing walk on the beach at Breakwater Beach. Sandcastles can be built all year around - in fact insider knowledge suggests that they are better if there has been a little bit of rain! There is no limit to the fun you can have when you holiday with children at Kippy's Cottage

Kippy's Cottage is tastefully decorated and has a terraced garden at the front so you can watch the world go by on warmer days. It really is a cottage with the cute factor!

Short breaks are avaliable outside of school holidays and have flexible start dates. To find out more please contact the owners by clicking on the picture below. Take advantage of shorter breaks and flexible start dates - what a refreshing idea!

Latest Review - August 2016

Kippy’s is a real treasure. We loved the cottage and the views from the front windows are outstanding. From the moment we stepped into Kippy’s it felt like home from home. Loved the decor too - so cool and relaxing. 

The cottage was so fresh and clean, and the welcome pack was just what we needed after our journey. I was well ready for a cuppa!

An email from the owners on our arrival wishing us a good holiday was a special touch.

The grandchildren had a great holiday and enjoyed catching crabs at the harbour. They also loved the cottage and all the nooks and crannies to explore. It was so convenient for us and Brixham itself is a beautiful place. All the arrangements for the cottage were very smooth and we had no problems at all. I even enjoyed cooking in the beautiful and well equipped kitchen!!!!!

We were all sorry to leave and I hope that we will have the opportunity to visit again sometime. 

Thank you Kippy's for a wonderful and memorable holiday!
