This rustic house is an ideal choice for those who are fond of their own space, from the more introvert to the modern-day virtual worker, but who also require a property with plenty of room. Penny Steps can sleep up to nine in its five bedrooms. For larger parties — especially family groups — the neighbouring first floor Poppin and Tom's Nest apartments can be booked for convenience, subject to availability.
Penny Steps is, however, not suitable for those with mobility impairments. There are 18 steps from pavement level to the house's front door, and the property itself is spread across three floors. Pets are also not permitted at this property.
The property has a calming neutral colour palette and an expansive, airy feel with considerably sized rooms and high ceilings typical of Victorian-era architecture. The property's bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms (all with showers) & endearing accent colourings and nicknames ascribed by the owners, including the first floor ‘Shrek Room.'
Additionally, enjoy the frontal, Instagrammable views overlooking the Marina that are sure to make you the envy of your family and friends, all from the comfort of your room or the bench on the property's balcony. For more private socialisation, there is a small, paved area at the rear of the property. The owners request that you do not smoke on the benches, but there are seating options across the road.
Essential Details Five bedrooms (single, 2 x double, super-king or twin, king) Five bathrooms (all with showers, one with bath) Additional fold-out mattress in the dressing room near the master suite Balcony with bench seating suitable for al-fresco dining Dining areas near the kitchen and the lounge Free WifiIn order to unpack on arrival and re-pack upon departure, there is a 15-minute loading/unloading space outside the property. If you anticipate taking longer than this, someone must stay in the car at all times, or the property's parking at the Brixham Marina multi-storey is only two minutes walk away. Two permits are provided for the duration of your stay but must be left at the property upon departure. Failure to do so will incur a replacement charge on your security deposit. The car park is secured by number plate recognition cameras and presents a three-digit saving on local parking, which can infamously be scarce in the summer months
