A very relaxed week in a home from home apartment!
The apartment is very well designed and furnished, everything we wanted in a holiday home. We had two minor plumbing problems but both were put right within hours of reporting them- well done to the plumber! The site is well located on the outskirts of Brixham with a very pleasant wooded walk into town. We also walked into Paignton. I think the swimming pool area could be more imaginative, perhaps changing room, loungers etc. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and although we rarely return to the same place this site might tempt us! ??

A relaxing, peaceful and comfortable break
Dunlin 3 is a very comfortable apartment with a lovely decked terrace which has views out to sea and Torbay. It is beautifully furnished, and very well equipped with everything you would need for a truly relaxing break. The location is ideal being in a quiet area with Fishcombe Cove just below the development, and it's only a short 15/20 minute stroll through Battery Gardens and along the quayside to Brixham Harbour, the walk back does involve steps or a hill, so you do need to be reasonably fit. There are lots of lovely walks in the area, we particularly enjoyed the walk to Berry Head and the nature reserve. Many thanks to the owner of Dunlin 3 and Blueriver Cottages we had a wonderful time.

Ok, let's get the niggles out of the way first, there's only a couple of small ones. We booked this particular apartment because the information states that there is an undercroft with large storage cupboard to the rear of the property where guests can store a kayak or bike etc. However on arrival we discovered that builders working to the rear of the apartment (no complaint here as we knew work was ongoing when we booked) were using the undercroft as a temporary storage area. Also there was no key to be found anywhere! We had to leave our kayak on the patio area and as this is a ground floor apartment not ideal. The small outside storage box did have a key but the padlock had rusted shut! Now onto the good stuff and this far outweighs the odd niggles. A lovely apartment. Modern, light and packed full of mod cons. Beautiful decor and comfy furniture. The dish washer and washer/drier were a bonus. The patio area is generous and well equipped with fabulous sea views, although when sitting the views are obscured. The bedrooms are on the 'cosy' side but adequate. We found the apartment sparkling and squeaky clean. There is plenty to see and do in the area. We had a fabulous 4 night break. KPG. Dorset - 2nd October 2015
Lovely stay in beautiful location.
Compact but well thought out apartment. It makes you feel like you are staying at a friends house as everything you need is there, apart from oven gloves (note to owner ?? ) Location couldn't have been better, with the coastal walk to Brixham and the cove right below. Brixham is delightful and Torquay, Dartmouth and Paignton are just a boat hop away. We also visited Cockington and Babbacombe. All in all a memorable stay and we'll definitely return. Craig.
