A lovely property, perfectly placed in the pretty town of Brixham.

The location is great and the property was quiet. It has a great view of the town. Unfortunately it was not particularly clean when we arrived and there were dog hairs everywhere including inside the fridge and we needed to clean the property. The outside space is misleading, it is a walkway to another property, not really somewhere you can sit or Read morehave a dog. Otherwise we enjoyed brixham.

Good property but small. Be prepared to walk for parking and travel light as nearest car park is only for 3 hours. Suitable for younger couple but all facilities catered for, and 5 minutes from harbour.

Fabulous little sail loft with many home comforts. Towels and bedding were good quality and the whole concept worked exceptionally well. Great views from the living space(kitchen/lounge). The location was fantastic literally 100 metres from the harbour but you need to be fit and healthy to take on the Brixham steps. Fabulous stay

Lovely little sail loft cottage - there are steep up to the property from all angles which wasn't an issue for us at all but if you are a bit iffy on your feet youll need to take your time!

We did enjoy our stay, finding the flat clean and well equipped. However, access to the flat, up or down steep steps, may cause difficulties for some people.

Great place to stay for a couple! Very close to many restaurants around the harbor. The bus stop is only a couple minutes away by walking. You can get to the cottage by either walking up a set of steep stairs or a steep hill. The whole area is hilly anyway, so you cant completely avoid it. All worth the great views and closeness of shops and activiRead moreties! Hide

A cosy, quirky property that is very well equipped and ideally located for exploring the local area, coastal paths etc. Lots of lovely places to eat and drink within walking distance. Property is only accessible by steps which some may find challeging, but that didn't affect our enjoyment. We would come back to St Pete's Nest.
