About Us

Sampford House is a Grade II listed 18thC fisherman's house overlooking Brixham harbour and with sea views across Torbay to Torquay. Built in 1782 it has been a guest house for some thirty years. Brixham is an ideal base from which to tour the South Hams area and further west to the Eden Project and the many glorious beaches, coves and beautiful West Country towns and villages.

Our rooms are cosy and recently decorated. The lounge and dinning room has a log burning stove which is lit on colder evenings and all rooms have central heating.
freshly cooked breakfasts are served farmhouse style. Vegetarian options and cereals, fruit juice and fresh fruit are always available. With prior notice we will arrange early breakfasts and packed lunches.

Sampford House is a stones throw from the Harbour, town centre, Marina, Breakwater Beach, Berry Head Country Park and the South West Coast Path.

Sampford House also boasts a one bedroom self-contained cottage to the main building with a double bedroom and bathroom upstairs and a lounge downstairs. The bedroom can accommodate a cot if required. The lounge has a double sofa bed for guest use and this is left on a bed and breakfast basis with breakfast being taken in the main dinning room. Guests in the cottage have their own front door and the kitchenette is equipped with a microwave and fridge. So if you need or want a little more space and privacy then this is ideal for a short break in Brixham. As it is quite cosy we recommend that a maximum of three adults could occupy or a family of up to five including children.
