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

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.

Great location in the heart of Brixham, within easy reach of the harbour and local pubs and restaurants. There is a view of the harbour through the houses. Be aware of the steps from the streets to the cottage and the area where you need to park, as it is a little strenuous for some.
