Our week in Brixham | Day 1 & 2


Our First Day in Brixham was spent relaxing after a long 4.5 hour drive. We finally found our gorgeous apartment, The Sundeck, then popped to the shop to grab some lunch before fully relaxing.


We were really impressed with the apartment, with my favourite part of it being the quaint balcony with mint green chairs and potted plants. The view is also amazing with all the little pastel houses peeking through.

The apartment itself is beautifully decorated with a classic nod to the coast, lots of cream and blue tones and a stunning driftwood coffee table!

After a few hours rest taking in the views, and sounds of the coast (seagulls i'm looking at you!) we mustered ourselves and got ready to have a pottle down to the harbour, for a few cheeky glasses of gin.



We stopped at the Old Market House for a drink, which is right on the harbour front. We picked an outdoor seat so we could make the most of the last bit of day light, and watched people go about their evening.  I chose an Elderflower and Pink Grapefruit gin, which was delicious.

We sat for a while before making our way back up to our apartment, stopping for one last drink at The Maritime Inn, which is a little pub full of trinkets, from pots on the ceilings and pictures on the walls, there was even a parrot! I would definitely recommend paying a visit.


Day Two soon rolled round, and it was set to be another glorious day of sunshine. We woke quite early and treated ourselves to a scrumptious breakfast of fruit and pastries, it was Sunday after all!

We decided to spend the day exploring the pretty independent shops in Brixham and hunt down a Carvery for lunch. Some of my favourite shops that we came across were Twit Twoo and Inspirations. There were lots of cute shops selling homeware and dainty jewellery.


All that shopping makes for tiring work, and I had spotted the I.Scream parlour on our way to get our morning coffee so we made our way there for a nice cold treat. After much deliberation my husband went for their Smurf ice cream, which I have to say did look incredible, however, I had my eyes on the Jaffa Cake ice cream, which was so good! There was so much choice, from sweet eton mess to chocolatey malteaser, they all looked yummy.

We were fuelled up ready for a bit more exploring before we decided it was time to find ourselves a carvery. We came across the Prince William, which is right on the harbour. We contemplated sitting outside but saw a naughty seagull pinch a roast potato and soon changed our minds!

 

The food was wholesome and comforting, and after eating all that deliciousness we needed a good walk! The Prince William is right near to the lighthouse, so we decided to stroll down to the end of the breakwater.


We made our way back to the apartment for a few hours, before getting ready for another night in the harbour. I'd spied a cocktail bar called Liberty's that I was itching to go to, so that was the plan for the evening.


We sat outside Liberty's on the cutest tea cup stools, and sipped our drinks in the evening warmth. I chose a Raspberry Daiquiri, followed by an Elderflower one, both of which were scrumptious. The music was good too with plenty of 80's music being played!

Then we headed back to the apartment for a good night's sleep, before another busy day exploring!


I hope you've enjoyed part 1 of my Brixham travel diary,
 part two will be up soon!
