Our week on “Faithful” was absolutely wonderful.
The owners do everything they can to ensure your stay is comfortable and relaxed, ranging from organising your parking close to the marina, to fresh flowers on arrival and ice in the freezer!
The boat is moored in the most fantastic spot on the outer edge of the marina with a sea view that you would pay a fortune for in an hotel. A cosy bedroom, comfortable lounge area, hot shower, efficient loo, romantic lighting, TV and a stock of games and videos should you tire of watching the ships go by. “Faithful” is also equipped with everything you could possibly need if you wished to cater for yourself – crockery, cutlery, pots, pans and cooking utensils, an efficient oven, fridge and microwave. Or a ten minute walk into the heart of Brixham will take you to a myriad of restaurants, most of which, as you would expect, specialising in freshly caught sea food.
There is so much to do in the Torbay area, that we were busy every day, but the highlight was returning to “Faithful” and relaxing on deck to watch the constant comings and goings in and out of the marina and harbour. There is even a nosy seal that took a close look at us most mornings and evenings!
We cannot recommend this holiday enough…and worth every penny!!!
