Sampford Guest House
Ranked #1 of 26 Brixham B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 10, 2011

Even the weather was perfect for our recent stay at Sampford House! The owners Matthew and Rosie have made us feel like this is beautiful is our own home away from home in brixham, and on this trip we found our favourite B&B in brixham has got even better!

The recent paint work carried out on the outside of the building has been wonderfully finished off by some lovely hanging baskets achieving the picture perfect finish to the grade 2 listed building overlooking the harbour. And the improvements to the already beautiful B&B didn't stop there - we stayed in the cottage again and were excited to see that that it has been recently been redecorated to a high standard with new flooring throughout. The four-poster is the perfect finishing touch for this magical setting!

Needless to say we are booked in for our next weekends getaway in August!

Thank you again for your hospitality!

As a retired hotelier, I tend to be very critical about the places I stay in, but the Sampford Guest House, and more importatly the owners - Matthew and Rosie excelled in every aspect. My only regret was staying for just one night, en route to Cornwall, and although a very last minute booking, we occupied the last room which unfortunately did not have a sea view. But that made no difference whatsoever as the room was spotlessly clean and ample for our needs as we toured the area and took up Matthew's recommendation to have dinner at the Poopdeck. Fabulous. I was advised that the new owners had only recently taken over this charming fisherman's cottage and yet they were so knowledgable and forthcoming with places to visit in the area. As hosts, they were excellent and nothing was too much trouble for them in making us so very welcome. A hearty and well cooked breakfast with a wide selection of items was provided prior to our departure. Would we return, quite definitely and to Rosie and Matthew, well done in your attention to detail and I dont think the words 'good luck' are needed as you provided the service and accommodation that I would have expected to find in a good 4 star property. Thank you again for your hospitality and don't hesitate to pass on my recommendation to anyone who may have doubts as to where to stay in Brixham.

We stayed for two nights at this lovely little fisherman's cottage. In our view, the best accommodation that Brixham has to offer! We loved the views and excellent location, but most of all THE BREAKFAST!, which sets you up for the day until it's time for your Devon pasty. Local produce was greatly appreciated, especially the hog's pudding!

Room Tip: Ask for a harbour view, if available.

This is a superb guest house. The welcome was very warm. Nothing too much trouble. The location is 1st class, right opposite the harbour. The room was spotless, the linen crisp and white. The breakfast was delicious, and beats large expensive hotels.
If you are looking for great accomodation in Brixham this is the one.
We have already booked to go again. Can't wait.

Just returned from a three night stay at Samford House. Second visit we have had there and first with the new owners. Excellent guest house, made to feel welcome the moment the door opened. Full English breakfast a delight. You are able to have any combination you wish, as my partner , a vegetarian, did. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone wanting a place to stay in Brixham. Will definately be returning again. Free parking a short distance away by the harbour. Our room had fantastic views over the harbour.
