An impossibly charming 'glam-boat' with picture-postcard sea-and-harbour views of the colourful Brixham harbour on The English Riviera.
  • Sleeps: 3
  • Bedroom: 1
  • Bathroom: 1
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights

A true hidden gem in southern Torbay, Brixham is strewn with scenic activity, from stunning coastal walks, clear-water beaches, and pretty architecture in an array of fun colours.

You’ll find The Inspiration amidst all this bustling action, yet it is beautifully and securely secluded away in Brixham’s friendly marina. Featuring exceptional sea-and-harbour views from the private deck, this is a break that will cheer your soul as soon as you arrive.

Sleeping up to three guests, you’ll find everything you need on board for a relaxing time away with your loved ones. The boat is compact in style, measuring a cosy 24 by 9 feet, yet with a deceptively spacious feel.

Furnished in a contemporary, ‘home-from-home’ style, there’s a comfortable living area, bedroom and kitchenette that form a convenient studio space. Curl up in front of the TV for movie night, before preparing a few tasty cinema-style snacks – the perfect way to close a hectic day exploring the local area!

You’ll find a cosy double and a single bed waiting for you when it’s time to turn in, complete with thick, snuggly mattresses and fresh bedding. Take your morning coffee out to the deck and watch the seals playing for a while, as you chat over your plans for the day.  Freshen up in the luxurious, underfloor-heated shower block, a mere two-minute walk from your boat (you will also find a warm-water shower and a chemical loo on board) …and you’re all ready to begin your day.

Indeed, the only question you’ll ask is: what to do first? You could begin with a five-minute meander to the nearest beach for a refreshing swim – there are plenty more to discover close by, that you can access on foot, by bus or by car – or you can head for the local sea pool which is also close by! You can also try your hand at a myriad of water sports, if you’re in the mood for exerting some energy.

If you prefer a bout of lazy shopping peppered with coffee stops, simply take a stroll along the promenade. You could also jump in the car and head for the local retail park, just 20 minutes away.
