Property code: BX072

Converted beautifully with thoughtful little touches throughout, this property promises a comfortable and stylish family holiday close to the heart of bustling Brixham

This historic building, located a short distance from Brixham harbour, is well positioned to enjoy scenic views and the amenities found in the pretty hillside village of Brixham. There’s ample space for all the family, with four bedrooms sleeping a total of seven guests. The property boasts a sunny south-facing balcony, where guests will be able to relax and enjoy a morning cuppa before embarking on a day of adventure. Coastal walks and sheltered coves are all within a short distance from the property.

Originally a structure built to accommodate and manufacture sailboats, this tall, narrow building has now been tastefully converted into a stylish cottage that suits contemporary living. A characterful space, the cottage is entered on the first floor via steps leading to the main open-plan living space with its own balcony. The lounge area has a restful, neutral interior, with comfortable sofas and a beanbag providing the perfect spots to watch a film. Two bedrooms can be found on the floor below, one of which is a master king-size with an en-suite, providing flexible sleeping spaces for a large family. The highlight of the property is the second master bedroom, which can be found on the top floor and also boasts an en-suite. This impressive space has a vaulted ceiling, adding to the room’s grandeur. A single bedroom, also with a vaulted ceiling, can be found on this floor, too.

Brixham is a wonderful place to explore, with the harbour less than 1 mile away from the property. A walk of just 1.5 miles brings you to Fishcombe Cove, an idyllic beach location for all the family. Grab your buckets and spades, and help the little ones build sandcastles in this stunning area. Animal lovers can go wild at Paignton Zoo, just 5.5 miles away, where budding zoologists can find themselves up close and personal with, amongst others, a komodo dragon!

  • 4 bedrooms – 2 king-size bedrooms with TV and en-suites, 1 twin and 1 single with space for a travel cot

Lovely cottage, great home comforts in a close location to central Brixham. If driving you would need to park at a long stay car park which is a 10-15 minute walk back to the house each time you go out for the day.

We would recommend The Old Sail Loft and we would return again. The dining table is a little tight for 7 and watching TV is also awkward. 7 adults can make it work if you don't want to spend all day in the accommodation. We really enjoyed ourselves and The Manor 10 steps across the road was a bonus.

Maybe include a child safety gate in the extensive inventory, not a criticism just a thought. The house was clean, well equipped and comfortable.

Very clean, spacious and well equipped, had a great week. A few squeaky floor boards could be heard downstairs when our 2 year old woke up early but a minor point given the rest of the place.

Great location in the heart of the town. Be aware that Brixham is very hilly and wherever you stay you will be up a hill. Really nice accommodation. Lots of pillows.

Super accommodation. Well laid out for multiple family groups to share time and have some privacy. Spotlessly clean with everything you need.

Excellent cottage, felt luxurious and relaxing, especially the master bedroom with its beautiful window. Plenty of room for 7, including 6 adults and a teenager.

The house worked perfectly for us as our 18 and 19 year old boy and girl each had their own bedroom and bathroom so less argumentsbonus!! The house was very clean and tidy.

Great recommendation to get the 7 day parking permit for long stay parking & fortunately the weather was nice so we enjoyed our walks to & from the carpark along the harbour.
