Brixham has just been crowned “port of the year” in the UK’s only awards ceremony celebrating the commercial fishing industry, the Fishing News Awards. Brixham boasts a reputation as an epi-centre of the fishing industry in England, with both the quality and quantity of fish landed at the port coming in for high praise. The local fleet lands a wide range of fish to the local shops, restaurants and markets. The awards were presented at a ceremony hosted by TV’s Sunday Brunch co-presenter Simon Rimmer, a professional chef and restaurateur. He said “Brixham really is a wonderful place and it fully deserves this accolade. The variety of seafood landed in the port makes it a fantastic place to visit and experience something fresh and different.” Eric Lloyd & Co is currently offering for sale two outstanding homes in the harbour area of the port. The first, Trinity Lodge on the market at £315,000, is a five bedroom character terraced cottage with a unique and entirely bespoke interior. The reception rooms are a delight reflecting the charm of this home. Behind the house is an amazing and unexpected garden with a view over the town and a glimpse of the harbour. The second, Polly’s Place, is a character three/four bedroom bay fronted terraced house on the southerly facing hillside above the harbour, enjoying a bird’s eye view of the harbour scene below. It has a great sun terrace also overlooking the harbour. Currently a holiday let, asking price £329,950.
