Another short break over and yet again spent in the most fabulous B&B in Brixham. Mathew and Rosie continue to be the hosts with the most. The enviable location with stunning views and free parking in the harbour make it just perfect for exploring the local area and enjoying the many bars and restaurants just a short walk away.

We stayed in the adjacent cottage for three nights. The beauty of staying in the cottage is you have the independence of a self catering property with the convenience of nipping through the adjoining door into the main dining area for a delicious full English. Result! Matthew and Rosie were the perfect hosts. Friendly, welcoming, attentive and full of helpful...

We were made very welcome at Sampford Guest House by Matt and Rosie throughout our three night stay and we will definitely go back there. Our room (the Harbourside Suite} was superb - clean, spacious and very relaxing with a great view of the harbour. Breakfast was delicious, with plenty of choice. We had a parking spot on the harbour,...

We have stayed at this place for 5 years and have tried most of the rooms and we were not disappointed in any. My favourite is the Fishermans Cottage next door (which is linked with the B & B by an internal door) and just recently we stayed in the Harbourside Suite. I did um and r about leaving a...

Just had a 3 night break staying at The Sampford House. Great location on the harbour with free car parking which was good, but downside you had to walk up steps or hill to get back. Ideal base for visiting local attractions. Matthew and Rosie were lovely hosts and have a lot of local knowledge. Our room had a harbour...

Just spent three relaxing days at the Sampford being looked after by Rosie and Matthew who where the perfect hosts! Nothing was too much trouble and Matthew is so knowledgeable about the area. They have their breakfast routine off to a fine art and Rosie's breakfast will set you up for the day. Our room overlooked the harbour and had...

A very spacious, homely room with friendly and accommodating hosts. Lovely view of the harbour (we even got binoculars!) from our room. Plenty to choose from for breakfast! The only fault was the shower which was not very powerful, maybe needs some maintenance. However, I would not knock down the rating down for that minor fault! Would definitely stay again...

My wife and l were recommended Sampford House for break by the sea, it exceeded what we were told. The accommodation, service and locality were perfect. Great walks in the harbour, drinks in the bars, food from a good choice of restaurants and styles. If you want a great place to enjoy Brixham, and be able to explore the Devon...
