Entertainment guaranteed

You’ll be sure of a warm welcome to this wonderful, huge Edwardian house overlooking Brixham harbour. Original features - the decorative plasterwork, oak panelling and high ceilings are balanced with contemporary touches that make living here a holidaymaker’s dream. Echoes of the first owner, wealthy local Charles Hellier in 1910, ground this house.

You’ll find it at the end of a private road, behind a stone gateway, nestled in pristine landscaped grounds, with sea views from the gardens and verandas. Perhaps you’ll spot the hunting lodge decor, antiques and chandelier-lit oak staircase by the iridescent stained glass window in the grand entrance hall. Perhaps you’ll notice the 180 degree sea views over Brixham Breakwater from the main drawing room, or the oak-panelled dining room with original stone hearth - just ready for a roaring fire later. There’s so much to take in.

The country kitchen is the perfect vision of luxury self-catering - complete with a separate preparation area if you’d like to hire in caterers to help with a large group. Outside, you’ll see a stunning al fresco dining area with brick BBQ.

When you’re ready for a spot of competition, assemble teams in the dedicated ‘fun floor’ with its own bar, table tennis, playroom with blackboard wall, gym and indoor heated pool. A full size snooker room is just waiting to be discovered on the ground floor.

Friendly housekeepers live in the lower ground floor apartment and are always on hand.

If you ever exhaust the entertainment in the house, venture out to the gorgeous chalky beach below - Brixham Breakwater, and the shops, tearooms and impressive fish market in Brixham. Discover the remains of an Iron Age hill fort at Berry Head and the nature haven between Berry Head and Sharkham Point. Vibrant Torquay and picturesque Paignton are within striking distance.

Bedrooms and bathrooms

Relish the country house hotel vibe of the eight grand bedrooms, each with its little flourishes - a French bed here, ornate marble mantelpieces there. The bathrooms are lavish - one has an Edwardian style bathtub just ready for you to sink into luxury.

Special note: Please note, stag and hen parties are not permitted at this property.

Fantastic, what a property!!!....you will not be disappointed if you book this accommodation. The property is in a great location and has some beautiful views Brixham and surrounding areas. The house itself was so nice, very spacious, beautifully finished and comfortable. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in the area with a large family/Group. Would definitely stay here again.

Mr B,

Spectacular house, beautiful views and my family had a lovely relaxing holiday.

Mrs S,

A magnificent spacious property in a brilliant location overlooking Brixham harbour. The owner/manager, Steve, could not have been more helpful.

Mr L,

Excellent house to stay in with breathtaking views! Probably the best we’ve ever stayed in. Steve the host is fantastic and went above and beyond to help us. We hope to go again one day! Thank you very much!

Mrs T,

We thoroughly enjoyed our return visit to Wolborough House and will no doubt be returning again in the future. The house is always very well presented and has a superb location. Somehow we always seem to be lucky with the weather. The house manager Steve was helpful and friendly throughout.

Mr C,

What a fantastic place to stay! From the moment we arrived, Steve was there to welcome us and show us the property. He was helpful, friendly and left us some local produce to sample and wonderful flowers. We felt confident that all Covid19 appropriate cleaning precautions had been taken. The house has everything you need for that touch of luxury; full of character and charm. From the Snooker room through to the dining room with excellent views over the breakwater and bay. Family fun time in the indoor swimming pool, table tennis and games area and further wonderful views from the bedrooms. Our family had a wonderful relaxing stay and we will definitely look to return in the future. Excellent property and throughout the week Steve was available to assist with any queries we had.
