Dh and I are continuing a theme of staying in self catering cottages in October.

Which harbourside towns/villages would people recommend please? Lots of results have come up with Brixham but I've heard iffy reports?

We've stayed in Dartmouth, which was lovely, in an apartment overlooking the river.

Also Lymington in Hampshire, which has a huge marina.

Clovelly, North Devon
Craster, Northumberland
Port Isaac, Cornwall
