“Wow what a place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Stayed for four nights in this beautiful house and had the best nights sleep in a hotel or B&B.The house has been renovated to such a high standard and every where you look it is superb.Nick and Amanda are the perfect hosts and do everything they possibly can to enhance your stay,a lovely touch is cake in the room for afternoon tea,and all the toiletries in the beautifully equipted bathroom.Thanks to NIck for recomending all the best eating places in the harbour and for letting us share your lovely home,the breakfasts are freshly cooked to order and a very good selection of cereal and fruit is available every day.We recommend this to everyone who wants just that bit more from a B&B.Thanks Guys good luck for your future success .J &T

We have just returned from a 3 night break in Brixham and felt compelled to recommend Beacon House.
Nigel and Amanda have created a fabulous B&B in the ideal location for Brixham Harbour, fantastic views, super comfy beds and delicious breakfasts, nothing is too much trouble, in fact you are made to feel welcome and at home as if you were a member of the family.
If you plan to visit Brixham make sure you stay at Beacon House - you leave feeling relaxed and refreshed. Can't recommend this B&B enough!

We just stayed here for 2 nights in the magnificent Bay View room - and what a view it is from the balcony! Thank you Nigel and Amanda for sharing your lovely house with us, we enjoyed our stay immensely. Both very welcoming, and Nigel's knowledge of local restaurants and bars proved very useful. The "Full Beacon" breakfast definitely does the job, along with the fruits and other goodies on offer. Decoration and finish of the room and house in general is very high, this really is a magnificent B&B, probably the best we've stayed in, and we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Private balcony on Bay View is amazing.

We stayed 4 nights: enough time to spot any weaknesses if there had been any. The entire house has been sympathetically restored, with a very high standard of décor, comfort and finish. Our room was well-appointed, with a chiller cabinet and excellent shower room. Nigel and Amanda are excellent hosts and the service they provide is second to none. Breakfasts were varied and of a uniformly high standard, with juices and fresh fruit in different guises. On our last morning scrambled eggs, smoked salmon and muffins were the order of the day! If you have to have it, there's good WiFi.
Parking is a great bonus. The harbour is 5 mins downhill on foot, and the return journey takes a little longer, but it's not too steep and there are handrails to help the unsteady.
I should be surprised if there's anywhere better locally!

Room Tip: We stayed in Bay View, which has a terrace overlooking the harbour. Terrific!

My partner and i spent the weekend at Beacon House,11th-13th May 2013.
We arrived early and made very welcome by Nigel,he made room for us in the car park so we could move from the narrow road behind the house.
We stayed in the room called "Harbour View",wow what a fantastic view!
The room has lovely furnishing and a very comfortable bed.The whole house has the wow factor and is a credit to Nigel and Amanda.
Breakfast was fantastic,a lovely selection of fruits and Amanda's special of the day and homemade flapjack in our room.
Beacon House is a credit to Nigel and Amanda,best B and B we've ever visited.
Would recommend to anyone.
