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

Located just a stone’s throw from Brixham harbour, this property is well-positioned for making the most of its many attractions. Jump on board a boat to explore this stunning stretch of coastline or stay on dry land to browse the many independent shops, restaurants and cafes that line the harbour. The coast path links Brixham to sheltered coves and pretty villages, promising jaw-dropping views along the way.

Beautifully converted for contemporary family life, this quirky building is full of character and history, with a tall, thin structure built to accommodate and manufacture Brixham’s sail boats. The property is entered via the first floor, where steps lead from a welcoming entrance hall with WC up to the main lounge. At one end, the sleek kitchen area features a wooden floor, electric oven, fridge/freezer, electric hob, microwave, washer/dryer, dishwasher, kettle and toaster. Once prepared, enjoy meals at the round table together before relaxing on one of the comfortable sofas or beanbag to indulge in a good book from the bookcase or a film from the selection of DVDs available. With French doors opening onto a balcony beyond, this is a sunny and bright room with a tranquil feel. Downstairs on the lower ground floor there are two bedrooms, one double and one twin. While the double benefits from an en-suite shower room and TV, the twin has access to the contemporary family bathroom with shower over bath and WC. At the top of the house, the master bedroom is an impressive and inviting room with a vaulted ceiling, double bed, plenty of storage space and en-suite bathroom with shower over bath. Also on this floor is a single bedroom, also with a vaulted ceiling and space for a travel cot if required.

Step outside from the lounge area and onto a sunny south-facing balcony. Featuring an original stone wall and a stunning view across the town, there is a good-sized table and chairs for enjoying al fresco meals in warm weather.

  • 4 bedrooms – 2 doubles, 1 twin and 1 single with space for a travel cot

  • This property is situated in the central harbour area so access to local amenities is reasonable straight and level.

Loved the Old Sail Loft - very spacious, very high quality equipment and furnishings (much of it brand new), great bathrooms, and only minutes' walk from Brixham Harbour, restaurants, takeaways, shops etc. Generous balcony for sitting and looking across the valley and listening to the seagulls.

I had previously lived in Brixham for nearly 20 years and this property provided an excellent base for a return visit over Christmas.

Well placed in Brixham to enjoy all of the amenities that the town offers. Very close to shops and harbour. With the property being on 3 floors, everyone felt they had space (we had 6 adults, a 3-year old and a baby). Excellent, comfortable layout and furniture.

Great holiday cottage with a short walk into Brixham. Theres a fantastic chippy called Simply Fish and Chips and a great restaurant called On the Rocks Smokehouse and Grill. Both are worth a go.
