Boasting picture-perfect views through extensive windows, this light and airy holiday home is packed of character and perfect for a South Devon retreat.

Ideally located at the heart of Brixham’s bustling harbour, this property is just steps away from the many cafes, shops, restaurants and galleries. In the harbour itself, boat trips offer fun days out for the whole family while the lively fish market is perfect for stocking up for your stay. Take to the nearby coastal path for wonderful walks and breath-taking scenery, or discover wildlife and history at Berry Head Nature Reserve.

On the entrance level to this property, a lounge with leather sofa, armchairs and Smart TV above a feature fireplace offers magnificent harbour views framed by a large bay window. Step through the charming oak door to find a cloakroom with WC and washbasin. Downstairs on the lower ground floor, the kitchen has been designed to make the most of the wonderful light and view even when preparing meals. This deep room contains a halogen hob, electric oven, integrated microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and freezer. Using a range of Portmeirion Coast crockery, dine with a view at the round table positioned beside glass patio doors. On the first floor, a double bedroom features a beamed ceiling, built-in storage, occasional chair, TV and harbour views. Next door, there is a family bathroom with shower over bath, WC and wash basin. The attic level, accessed via steep, winding stairs, is a large room with twin beds, panoramic harbour views, a Smart TV, chest of drawers and charming under-eaves wardrobe.

Step outside from the kitchen and onto a south-facing patio. Overlooking the harbour, this is a superb place to dine al fresco in the summer months.

Comfortable ,very well equipped and amazing views from every window.Enjoyed the binoculars and telescope to get close up views of harbour activity. Guests need to be aware of three sets of steep stairs in the property , tricky with luggage. Never did fathom the instructions for the microwave .

A fabulous, cosy home from home with the most amazing views from every room. It's in a brilliant location overlooking Brixham harbour where there's always something to watch. The steps from the harbour to the cottage were manageable and kept us fit and the reserved parking space across the harbour was much appreciated. We've already booked for nextRead more year! Hide

Amazing views from every floor. Could not fault location and the house has been refurbished to an excellent standard. Many places to enjoy around the harbour even out of season and a trip to Berry head a must. Even made use of a weekly bus pass as buses so frequent covering Kingswear to Dawlish including totnes.

Harbour Sail is the best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in, it really is a home from home, lots of well thought out details. The stairs could be a little tricky but we soon got used to them.

Reviewed by Paul 13th October 2018

We much enjoyed our stay at Harbour Sails, it is in a perfect location with many pubs and restaurants nearby. We would recommend Rockfish for fish and chips and the Lytehouse restaurant was excellent. We will certainly be coming back again!
