4th July – Election day!

Another lovely stay in this delightful apartment.

A recommendation – The Cott Inn Dartington is a really special place.  Find your favourite cocktail in the ‘Liberty’ just along the Quay from the flat.

Best wishes Ray and Carole

Dear Liz, dear Ian

Thank you very much for your hospitality!

Your apartment is fully equipped and you are hosts that also think about the small things which make life easier.

We felt like being at home in a tasteful environment.

Certainly we will try to come back as soon as possible.

cheers, Astrid and Andreas

Our second stay in your lovely apartment.

Everything was great, our week coincided with the air show, we had a fantastic view of all 9 Red Arrows in formation from the window.

Thanks for all the welcoming extras and the use of the parking space meant we were able to forget the car and use the buses.

Thanks once more for all the effort you put in to ensure your guests have a good stay.

Thank you

Brian and Kath

Ann and Kevin

26 – 29 April 2024

Our stay at One Fisherman’s Loft was truly wonderful.

We were made to feel welcome even before we arrived.  We were met at the door by Ian, a true gentleman, who carried my bag up the stairs – thank you!

A spacious, clean, comfortable apartment in the perfect location, with town just outside the door, and a truly amazing view.  And can’t forget to mention all those things to get us settled in: scones, cream, jam, tea (and there was coffee too), milk, crisps, chocolates and prosecco – cheers!  Even a scratch ticket for each of us, though no luck.  But we did have a win with the weather.

Sorry we’ll miss the Pirate Festival, although not sure how we would have squeezed in anymore fun.  Brixham is wonderful.

Thank you!  Ann and Kevin from Seattle.

Helen and Jason

28 – 31 March 2024

What a lovely, clean comfortable apartment.

Thank you for the added extras.  Hosts Ian and Liz were very welcoming and informative.  just the place we needed to unwind and chill for a few days and with that view that wasn’t difficult!  Right in the middle of the action if and when needed too.

Thank you again for making our first stay so enjoyable . . .  Do we really have to leave??!!

Look forward to our next visit.

Ralph and Miranda

13 – 16 March 2024

A beautiful apartment in the most excellent location overlooking the harbour.  What a find!  Everything here that you could wish for.

Thank you Ian and Liz for being such wonderful hosts.  We received the most warm and friendly welcome at the door and help with our luggage to the apartment.  The Loft is so well equipped and the extra touches made our stay extra special.  Thank you so much for the chocolate eggs, prosecco and the cream scones were delicious.  The bed was so comfortable and the towels were lush!  Everything has been thought of and we loved all the local artwork around the place (so much so we were inspired to buy some from the local art shop to take home).  We enjoyed a Mexican themed dinner at the Berry Head Hotel (recommended by our hosts) and tried some locally caught fish in the fantastic restaurants in town.  Greenway was a great day out and the ferry across to Dartmouth was splendid.

We have had a brilliant time celebrating my birthday and Ian and Liz’s hospitality and beautiful facilities at the Loft made everything perfect!

We hope to be back in the summer and would very much love to stay here again.

Yet another wonderful stay.  Have lost count how many times it is now.  After a busy and stressful few weeks only one place to come for a restful break away – your apartment!  We feel so relaxed from the moment we step through the door and with all your little extras no better place to be.

Thanks Liz and Ian

See you again soon.


Joel and Caroline

Yet another fantastic stay, our 4th time back to One Fisherman’s Loft.

The apartment was as perfect as it was the first time we stayed, and this time we even won on a scratch card!!

In addition to our usual “jaunts” (Berry Head, Torquay, Paignton) we found time to at last visit The Wine Loft, which was a very enjoyable experience.

Thank you Ian and Liz, see you again next time!

We’ve had a fabulous time in Brixham despite the rainy weather.

No 1 Fisherman’s Loft gets a 10 star rating from us.  Its a beautiful, comfortable apartment well equipped with a perfect location.  All the little extra goodies made us feel very welcome.

Thank you for meeting us on arrival and giving us lots of local information.  It was incredibly useful.  Looking forward to returning.

Pat and Peggy

Claire and Steve

22 – 26 October 2023

What a fabulous, fully equipped modern apartment!

We really appreciated the welcome gifts, and so nice to have the allocated parking space so close to the apartment, which meant we could just park the car and enjoy our holiday.

So lovely to have so many restaurants, bars and shops on the doorstep.

The highlight of our stay was the Paignton to Dartmouth steam train and passenger ferry trip.

We had a lovely relaxing break, thank you.

Claire and Steve


Vanessa and Steve

13 – 16 October 2023

Returning back to Fisherman’s Loft after our first visit 6 years ago was fantastic, and less traumatic than the first visit when I broke my ankle the week before!  The charm of Brixham remains timeless, just like the warm hospitality we experienced the first time round.  Thank you for the wonderful memories and the delightful treats.  Looking forward to our next visit!

Vanessa and Steve x

Once again another wonderful week in Brixham, in your amazing apartment.  Many thanks for all the treats, always appreciated.  Two wins on the scratchcards and added bonus, paid for the ice cream!  So lucky with the weather this week, hot and sunny every day.  No sign of Sammy the seal, or his friend, this year, but perhaps next year…….

Thanks again, kind regards

Sue and Gary


26 August – 1 September 2023

After hearing my parents rave about their stays here I thought I would also try a stay here, and what a lovely stay it was.

Ian was a true gentleman, meeting me on arrival and carrying my bags upstairs.  The apartment is gorgeous, a home away from home.

All the lovely touches, cream tea, sweets, prosecco, scratch card were a lovely touch and most appreciated.

Thank you for a lovely stay.



Jack and Marjo

19 – 26 August 2023

28 July – 4 August 2023

Barry and I were so excited to return to Brixham and stay in your beautiful apartment.  Our last visit around Easter time was cold, so we wanted to see Brixham in the summer season.  The weather has been hit and miss but did not stop us having a great time.

Thank you Liz and Ian xx

Jane and Trevor xx


Gill and Paul

19 – 26 May 2023

Normally we never go to the same place twice but we enjoyed the apartment and Brixham so much we could not resist!  Found lots of new things to do – new parts of the coast path, beware Kingswear to Brixham – it’s a toughy, got the ferry (lower) to Dartmouth both as passengers and car – more coast path and lovely shops, finally got to eat at Shoals (well worth it, monkfish curry and view a must) and they had fixed the Shoalstone pool just in time for us to have a swim in it.  Also managed to find time to do things we loved last time.  Weather fab again, the loft faultless.

Thank you both xx

Adele and Ted

27 April – 8 May 2023

Thank you Ian and Liz for another amazing time in your lovely apartment!

Can’t wait for next year!!

See you both soon.

Caroline and Joel

1 – 5 March 2023

Our third visit to Fisherman’s Loft and it never fails to excite us with its homely comforts and beautiful views.  Ian and Liz are the perfect hosts and always meet us with a smile, giving lots of hints and tips on the best places to visit.  On their recommendation we booked a table at “At Thai” for our last evening, and my goodness this was the best Thai meal we have ever experienced.  It was delicious!!

We also walked out to Berry Head and had breakfast at the Guardhouse, something we do on every visit, and this too is highly recommended.

Many thanks Ian and Liz

See you again….

Julie and Steve

23 – 26 February 2023

What a wonderful apartment!  Thank you so much Liz and Ian for a lovely welcome on our arrival.

Thanks also for the special treats and the fabulous advice on where to go and what to see.

One Fisherman’s Loft feels very homely and is clearly loved by all 🙂 we are already looking at when we may be able to return.  Our first visit to Brixham and what an excellent place to stay!

With best wishes

See you very soon

30 September – 3 October 2022

We have been to Brixham several times and One Fisherman’s Loft really is a home from home.  The apartment is immaculate and the lovely treats left by Ian and Liz are amazing and we are so grateful.  This is an amazing base for visiting all the sights around.  I will definitely recommend to family and friends.

Thank you 🙂

Yvonne and Phil

23 – 30 September 2022

We have been to Brixham many times over the years, but this is our first time staying more than a day.

We could not have chosen a more idyllic place to stay in than “Fisherman’s Loft”.  Your attention to detail, to give pleasure, comfort and hospitality is above the 10 star rating given by booking.com 🙂

A big “thank you” to you both.

Lorraine and Alan

18 – 23 September 2023

Our third visit to Brixham, and there will be many, many more, this most definitely is our ‘happy place’.

We will definitely be back.  Thank you!

Julie and Anthony

12 – 17 August 2022

One Fisherman’s Loft has been the perfect apartment for our first stay in Brixham.  Liz and Ian, you think of everything!  We haven’t had to contact you once as the apartment is perfect.  I’m sure we’ll be back.  Best wishes, Julie and Anthony.

Helen and Paul

29 July – 5 August 2022

Our second stay here and it was even better than the first!  A £10 win on the scratchcard, fabulous goodies and superb weather.  Brixham locals are so friendly and we even got invited out to dinner at a locals house.  We’ve hardly used the car and enjoyed the coastal path walk to Paignton, ferry to Torquay and Dartmouth.  It’s a beautiful part of the world, and we’ll be back.

Thanks Ian and Liz

Jayne and Chris

15 – 21 July 2022

Our 1st stay in 1 Fisherman’s Loft and won’t be our last!  Felt like home – all the extra treats were lovely too.  Very comfortable and a great position on the harbourside.

Our first visit to Brixham and it definitely will not be the last, we enjoyed every minute of it, we were recommended by a family member and we definitely weren’t disappointed.

Many thanks to Liz and Ian for letting us use your lovely apartment, we felt so at home as soon as we walked through the door.

A lovely few days in a superb flat.  What a view!

Brixham has given us a lovely break.  So much to see and do.  The bus service is amazing along with the boat trips.  We cannot wait to revisit.

Thank you Ian and Liz, your apartment is just perfect.  So homely and kept to a very high standard.  We both really appreciate all the loving extra gifts that were left around the apartment, our own little treasure hunt!

Thank you so much Liz and Ian for the use of your lovely apartment.  All the extra touches (nautical decorations and gorgeous pics) make it very special.  You are great hosts and from the initial telephone call, apartment meeting and extended parking place use we would highly recommend you 🙂

Loved the cream tea/fizz welcome and the other goodies too!

Bill and Trudie

18 – 21 February 2022

Ian and Liz, thank you so much for all you did to make our stay incredible.  Right from the start by calling us and letting us come down the night before so that we would not be driving when Eunice hit.

Then all the extras, prosecco, cream scones, crisps etc., they all made our stay in Brixham extra special.  We will certainly be back and recommend to friends and family.

Thank you once again for making our 29th wedding anniversary a memorable one.

See you again in the very near future.

Beautiful place, beautiful town, beautiful scones!

Thank you so much to Ian and Liz, you are truly wonderful hosts.  We will absolutely be back again!

John and Yvonne

6 – 9 November 2021

The reviews that we read before booking, and the comments we saw in this book on arrival, built anticipation of something special!  We were not disappointed.

David and Bridget

23 – 26 October 2021

We thought this place looked like a little gem – how incorrect, it is more like the Koh-i-Noor diamond!  Everything is perfect, every little detail is covered and much more added to it.  For us, in desperate need of a break it was wonderful and we will be back as soon as possible for more R and R.

Our hosts Ian and Liz are exceptional too, they have made the apartment so comfortable, it doesn’t matter about the weather, just chill.

Quay57, the restaurant two doors away was excellent, food brilliant and the staff attentive and helpful.

Words cannot express the quality of this place, see you again very soon …..

Lyn and Peter

17 – 21 October 2021

Eventually got here for our 3rd (long overdue) stay at your lovely apartment!!  We really missed last years visit to our “bolthole”!!

Sadly for the first time the weather hasn’t been so kind to us – but its not stopped us getting out and about.

Was so nice to bump into you both for a catch up and glad to hear you’re all settled in your “new” home!!

Look forward to returning again next year, despite all the uncertainty etc. it was so lovely to return here knowing you’d both of taken every care and attention.

Thanks so much.

Lyn and Peter xx

Gill and Paul

9 – 16 October 2021

It has been a while since we had a holiday with just the 2 of us and this week did not disappoint.  From the friendly welcome, despite us turning up early, all the thoughtful gifts and treats, much enjoyed and we won £2!!, the beautiful spotlessly clean and well equipped apartment with a view we never tired of, the long walks along the SW Coast Path, ferry ride to Torquay, sitting by the harbour watching the comings and goings, the amazing weather, evening drinks in our sun trap at The Prince William, cocktails at Liberty’s, great meals out wherever we ate, to just having time together enjoying Brixham.

Thanks you Liz and Ian for making it possible.


Lorraine and Alan

18 – 25 September 2021

Yet again a fabulous stay in this gorgeous flat and town.  Looking forward to our next visit.


Sue and Gary

4 – 11 September 2021

Yet another wonderful week in your clean and comfortable apartment.  Thanks again for the sweet treats, always appreciated.  A mixed bag of weather conditions this week, but didn’t stop us from exploring glorious Brixham.

Hopefully we can make a return visit next year.

Thanks again, kind regards.

Sue and Amos

21 – 28 August 2021

What a super apartment, couldn’t fault a thing.  Attention to detail and the extra touches were lovely.

Saturday night we had a front row seat for music on the pirate ship, fantastic!

Ian gave great advice, super host!


Kim and Nicky

7 – 14 August 2021

Ian and Liz

Thank you both so much for the lovely welcome and all of the little gifts and special little touches placed kindly around on arrival……

Second time staying here for one of us, couldn’t wait to come back, will definitely be back again!

Such a perfectly situated apartment with the most stunning views (could never get tired of them) and everything you could need for the most comfortable self-catering stay!

Shops, restaurants, pubs, harbour, beach, beautiful walks and so much more right on the doorstep …. Amazing!

Thank you xx

Keith and RoseAnn

31 July – 7 August 2021

We have had a brilliant stay in Brixham.

We have walked miles, eaten lots and drank a little 🙂

A fantastic apartment with a brilliant view.

Gary and Marion

July 17 – 24 2021

Second time here, apartment as always immaculate, with lovely touches, the prosecco, the sweets, cream tea all lovely touches.

Liz and Ian just know how to do this, they’re great.

Thoroughly enjoyed the stay.

Pete and Fen

Thanks for having us back again.

Weather been great except for the great downpour last Monday, we were drenched, but in a way enjoyed it.

Looking forward to booking our next visit.

Sue and Dave

19 – 25 June 2021

Another lovely stay in Brixham – as said by everyone, perfectly presented by hosts and lovely touches with fizz and scones!

Restaurants very busy so book early if you wish to dine out – we were happy shopping locally and cooking.

Ann and Peter

12 – 19 June 2021

Wonderful week in Brixham.  Weather could not have been better.  Apartment well equipped and marvellous position – able to send photos to family and friends.  Thanks to Ian for all help and recommendations – made the week so easy and relaxed.

Many thanks!

Louise and Mark

Well after having to cancel last year due to COVID we finally got here, and what a lovely apartment it is.

Everything you could need and welcome gifts on arrival.  Would definitely stay again.

Thanks Ian and Liz

Karen and Paul

28 – 31 May 2021

Thank you again.

Paul and Karen

Jane and Trevor

21 – 28 May 2021

Well it took 2 cancellations because of COVID but we finally got here!  What a lovely apartment, views to die for.  Loads to see and do.  We so enjoyed our week just chilling, trying all the coffee shops and meals out.  The “Chart Room” became our favourite coffee shop, so unusual, cakes and scones fabulous!!  We look forward to our return visit in September and reacquainting ourselves with Liz and Ian – a lovely couple.

Dawn and Keith

3 – 7 May 2021

Great 5 days, lovely apartment, thank you for all the extra touches.  Felt very at home and COVID safe.  Spent a lot of time at Liberties and took advantage of all the cocktails.  Will return.

Thank you x

Julia and Dean

Lovely stay thank you!  Flat is great, well equipped, fab views. 🙂

Lorraine and Alan

14 – 19 December 2020

A wonderful stay in this beautiful flat.

Thank you Liz and Ian, all those extra little touches too made for a fabulous welcome from you both.

Your recommendations for walks and eating out were spot on.  Highly recommend the coastal path walk, both ways, fab views and scenery.

Superb food in The Prince William and Beamers and Simply Fish for a cracking take-away.

Overall, fabulous town, amazing and friendly people, what more could we want and need.

Will definitely be back.

Love and best wishes and a Merry Xmas to you xx

Sue and Jeff

31 October – 4 November 2020

What an absolute gem of a flat, perfect in every way!  Thank you both so much for all the little extras you provided for our stay, (even though we had to cut it short – LOCKDOWN No. 2!).

We will be back – (if you’ll have us!).

Best wishes to you both and stay safe.

Pauline and David

24 – 31 October 2020

Thank you both for a lovely stay in your apartment.

Everything was perfect, well equipped too for self-catering.

Thank you also for the “goodies”.

I have already mentioned you to a friend!

Kind regards

Pauline and David

Ian and Julia

17 – 24 October 2020

A fabulous week in this most comfortable and perfectly situated apartment.  We have made the most of the clement weather exploring the nearby area with a clear decision, we need to return – there is so much to see and do.

We will recommend.

Thank you x


Andrea and Oliver

10 – 17 October 2020

A wonderful week in Brixham in this beautifully decorated and appointed apartment.  All the extras included here made for a relaxing and enjoyable stay.  Many thanks Both.

David and Deborah

28 September – 1 October 2020

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and greatly appreciated the extra touches.  The apartment was immaculate and was a lovely base.  We have been to Brixham on many occasions but this has been the best place for location and lovely accommodation.

Melaney and Bill

19 – 26 September 2020

Thank you for allowing us to re-charge ourselves in your lovely apartment.  Welcome goodies much appreciated.  Just what we needed, long coastal walks along the beautiful coast.

Sue and Gary

12 – 19 September 2020

Another wonderful holiday in your lovely apartment.

Everything we needed is provided and spotlessly clean as before.  So fortunate to have hot sunny days all week, so plenty of walking, and the seals came to see us as a bonus!  Many thanks to you both – a week in Brixham was just what we needed.  Hope to return next year.

Kind regards and thanks again.

Annette and Steve

5 – 12 September 2020

We have had a lovely week, we enjoyed the ‘extras’.  Thank you for the well equipped and comfortable apartment.  We couldn’t have wished for a better location to explore Torbay!

We definitely made the most of the local eateries.  We were lucky we had pre-booked at most, which meant we were lucky enough to sample some great food!  We would recommend Beamers (fantastic food and wine!), Simply Fish (you have to try the fish curry and chips!) and for a treat the Curious Kitchen (great breakfast).

We also enjoyed the sunset cruise with fish and chips from Rockfish.  We used this as a great base and went on trips to Kingswear, Dartmouth, Torquay and Paignton by bus, boat and steam train!

P.S.  We also made a couple of trips to Liberty Cocktail bar 🙂

P.P.S. Ate at Rockfish on last night – recommended!

Sharon and Darren

30 August – 4 September 2020

Fantastic apartment – had a lovely break.  Amazing location and views.

Thank you so much.

David and June

16 – 28 August 2020

Thank you once again for a lovely stay.

Everything was fine and thank you for all the extras.  It was a lovely safe environment to relax for a couple of weeks – lots of boat trips – fishing twice (caught and cooked lots!) wildlife safari, Dartmouth and Torquay and lots of lovely local walks – especially Berry Head.

Thank you once more for the wonderful apartment.

May God bless you and all you provide a “home from home” for here.

David and June

Gary and Marion

8 – 15 August 2020

A lovely apartment, beautifully appointed throughout with attention to every small detail covered.

The scones and jam, sweets, lottery scratch cards, bottle of prosecco – lovely.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The views over the harbour were breathtaking.

You gave us such a warm welcome Liz and Ian.

Thank you for everything.

Love Gary and Marion xx

Kim and Paul

31 July – 8 August 2020

Dear Ian and Liz

Well …. We’ve had the most amazing time!!!

This really was the tonic we both needed this year.

The pictures of 1 Fisherman’s Loft plus the area sold it to us but our stay was even better than anticipated.

A beautiful place to stay, and beautifully decorated, with every need catered for (above and beyond) …

Thank you for the lovely touches which made us feel so well looked after … The cream tea, sweets, lottery cards etc!

How kind and thoughtful of you, and really appreciated.

Such a comfortable place to stay with the most amazing/breathless views which you could never tire of.

We have enjoyed every minute of being inside and out, and exploring more of Brixham.  Thank you for being so welcoming …

We will definitely be back.

Kim and Paul xx


Karen and Paul

18 – 25 July 2020

After 4 months working at home a sunny week in Brixham was just what we needed and as always 1 Fisherman’s Loft was the perfect place to stay.

Everything was to the highest standard and we are very much looking forward to our next stay in May 2021.  Thanks Ian and Liz your apartment never disappoints.  See you next year.

Paul and Karen

Lisa and Jon

13 – 17 July 2020

Dear Liz and Ian

So pleased to have been able to visit again.

Times have been (and still are) very testing but the standard you achieve in the apartment is second to none.

Thanks for having us and we are already looking forward to another visit.

Lisa and Jon

Gina and Mike

12 – 15 March 2020

Dear Liz and Ian

Well… What a beautiful place and fabulous accommodation.  The apartment is so welcoming…. and has everything you need for a relaxing break.  All you need is a toothbrush!  Our first time in Brixham and Fisherman’s Loft, will not be our last.

Thank you again for making our stay so perfect and all of the lovely extra touches… in particular Mikes extra bits for his birthday… very much appreciated.

Gina and Mike

Vincent and Joanne

6 – 10 March 2020

A fantastic place in a perfect location with the best view!

The personal welcome was so helpful and all the little thoughtful touches helped our stay go so smoothly (the welcome treats and the “Treasure Box”).

We feel quite at home and can’t recommend it highly enough.  Joanne likes to be prepared for any eventuality but Ian and Liz had already covered all the bases.  We have greatly enjoyed their company also – a truly delightful stay!  Thank you both!

Vincent and Joanne

We loved our stay and meeting you both.  Hope to see you again xxx

Barb and Ed

Simon and Jackie

16 – 21 February 2020

Great welcome from Liz and Ian on arrival, very grateful for the help to “the loft” lovely extras very appreciated and enjoyed.

Great location although quite noisy early mornings with cars (assume from the port) and deliveries for the pubs and restaurants.

Views are terrific, nice walks close by and great places to eat/takeaway.

Enjoyed our stay, thank you.

Jackie and Simon

Sue and Charlie


14 – 16 February 2020

Blown in by Storm Dennis and found this ‘Gem’ in the heart of Brixham.

Liz and Ian make this such a cozy warm home from home and all of their special touches went down a treat – cream teas and scratch cards – NO WINNERS but always next time!

Can’t wait to get back here again.

P.S. Try Rockfish if you want a great gluten free meal 5 Stars

Phil and Elaine

12 – 14 February 2020

This flat came highly recommended and it certainly lived up to all our expectations.

We enjoyed lovely walks to Berry Head and Churston Cove and the fish and chips from Simply Fish were excellent.  We will return!

Chris and Carol

7 – 9 February 2020

Lovely flat and great hosts!  Everything we needed and lovely views and well positioned.

Will certainly recommend and would love to stay again.

Maxine and Peter

31 January – 4 February 2020

Dear Liz and Ian

We can only reiterate the lovely reviews/comments left by your previous guests.  Your apartment is a delightful place to stay with its may ‘extras’ making us feel so welcome.  Thank you.  The weather has not been quite so kind to us, however this has not prevented us from enjoying our break in Brixham and we hope to return again.

Peter had ‘the best fish and chips ever’ at Simply Fish today!

The people of Brixham have also been lovely and we would of course recommend ‘Fisherman’s Loft’ to others.

Thank you again.

Kindest regards

Maxine and Peter

Fiona and John

29 – 31 January 2020

Thank you for all your hospitality, all the nice touches that made our stay so special.  The flat and facilities are all outstanding.  You always know it is so good as you want to return.

Thank you Liz and Ian.

Ed and Barb

17 – 20 January 2020

Fab stay here as always. Love our stays here. Home from home. Always made to feel so welcome. Back again next month so can’t recommend Liz and Ian’s apartment enough.

Karen and Paul

28 December 2019 – 1 January 2020

Thank you Ian and Liz for another wonderful stay.

Your apartment is perfect for a comfortable break and your attention to detail is second to none.  We have enjoyed our walks even seeing dolphins at Berry Head and seals in the harbour.  We had a lovely meal at The Lytehouse restaurant and fish and chips at Simply Fish to die for!  “Happy New Year”.


Jon and Lisa

28 November – 2 December 2019

Ian and Liz – thank you for another fantastic break.  You keep pushing the standard higher and higher!  Great to see Brixham evolving with more new restaurants and bars.  We tried Noi’s for the first time – excellent food, and the brand new Miguel’s Tapas bar which was also great.  See you again soon.


Jon and Lisa

Jayne and Georgia

17 November 2019

Fabulous flat, fabulous location and view, well worth the 250 mile drive.  We’ve had a lovely stay, it really is like home from home with everything you could possibly need provided.  The attention to detail is simply amazing.  The extras, prosecco, scones etc. were a lovely surprise and very much appreciated.

Thanks Ian and Liz, we hope to be back 🙂


Tony and Julie

13 – 16 November 2019

First time staying in an apartment instead of a hotel, you have set the bar extremely high, you have thought of everything, including xtra touches (which we’ve most enjoyed).

The apartment is immaculate, the location can’t be beat.

Brixham is lovely, as were both of you.

Will return next year, thank you.

Kev and Gill

11 – 13 November 2019

A lovely flat with great views over the harbour.  We enjoyed walking to Churston.  Some restaurants closed but found other good restaurants.

Thank you Ian and Liz – we had everything we needed and extremely comfortable.

Zbig and Sara

9 – 10 November 2019

You want a view of the harbour, be next to pubs, shops and the centre of Brixham?  This is the place.  Liz and Ian, you have gone the extra mile with what you provide.  Possibly the best self-catering we have encountered.

The wedding was great and we now have more family in Brixham so will be back!

Thank you x.

Geoff and Linda

21 – 24 October 2019

Never expected such a warm welcome at a self catering booking.  You really do make people feel relaxed and happy that they have chosen Fisherman’s Loft for their holiday. You provide over and above what is the norm and we would like to thank you both for that. We have had a great few days and would be quite happy to spend a lot more time here. The goodies you leave are a very nice touch and we won £13 on the scratchcards ‘great’. Very friendly people in Brixham. Thank you Geoff and Linda.

Cal and Mac

11 – 14 October 2019

Thank you again Ian and Liz for having us back for our 4th visit.  We just love your apartment and feel more at home every time we come.  The first time we arrived loaded with bags only to find you have provided everything for us (this is not usual for self catering).  Now we arrive with half the bags.  Gold stars all round.  Had a lovely break.  See you soon.

Love Cal and Mac xx

Tim and Jean

1 – 6 October 2019

Wonderful holiday, just what we needed – excellent apartment and views. Pubs and restaurants all good.

Thanks for the welcome and gifts.


Bill and Denise

24 September – 1 October 2019

The apartment lives up to all the great reviews. It is a lovely place to stay. Thank you both for everything. We have enjoyed a good week, largely car free, making use of the good bus services. Walked some of the South West Coast Path and visited National Trust Properties. A small suggestion is for a potato peeler.

Elaine and Tony

17 – 20 September 2019

Fabulous location!  Fabulous apartment!  Fabulous hosts!  You thought of everything and we had a wonderful time.  Thank you 🙂

Lyn and Peter

14 – 17 September 2019

Lucky to see the seals two evenings whilst out walking too.

Look forward to returning for a 3rd stay at this wonderful “bolt hole”!!

Love Lyn and Pete xx

Sue and Gary

7 – 14 September 2019

A huge ‘Thank You’ to you both for a wonderful week in your spotless apartment. From welcoming us and helping with our luggage, to providing us with hints and tips for restaurants and trips around the lovely Brixham harbour. There is all we needed, and more, here and we have had an amazing holiday with great weather. We could not have asked for more! Hope to be back again, many thanks for everything x

P.S! Car park space invaluable and the goodies a sweet touch.

Kelly and James

We had such a lovely time in Brixham.

Your apartment is beautiful and very tastefully decorated.

Ian and Liz are so welcoming and go the extra mile from helping with luggage to recommending places to eat and places to go and explore.

The apartment is the best we have stayed in and the attention to detail is second to none.  Ian and Liz have thought of everything and then some!

Thank you and we will see you again soon!

Best wishes, Michelle and David


Caroline and Richard

Thank you so much for such a lovely, well equipped, well placed, gorgeous apartment, and the great welcome gifts which made my birthday even more special when we arrived.  Your hospitality and attention to detail, such as the extra items in the bathroom, and your help with carrying our cases up, together with the useful information on how to get here made for a wonderful visit.  Thanks again.

See you again as soon as we can manage it.

Clive and Wendy

19 – 22 June 2019

What can we say?

Perfect location, spotlessly clean, beautifully setup and equipped with everything you could possibly need.

Brixham has so much to offer and feels very welcoming, we loved the walks, the fresh sea air, the food, the coffee …. the list goes on!

Thank you so much for your hospitality! 🙂

Jack and Marjo from Holland

We are surprised by this wonderful apartment.

It feels like home.

Everything you need we have here.

We hope to come back next year.

Thank you!!

Jo and Pete

6 – 9 June 2019

Lovely apartment in great location.  We’ve enjoyed Brixham and had a very good meal in the Shoals cafe.

Thank you!

Heather and Ray

2 – 6 June 2019

1, Fisherman’s Loft, Brixham!! What a place to unwind!!

Liz and Ian’s attention to detail and help when needed; great places to eat; wonderful walks.  Perfect.

We’ll be back …

H and R

Mike and Lynn

28 – 31 May 2019

If you are lucky enough to stay here
You know that you will find
Everything you could possibly need
And hosts that are so kind

The towels are soft and fluffy
There’s bubbles and treats galore
There’s tips and recommendations
For places to explore

You can find a pub to call your own
Take a ferry around the shore
But you’ll need a 5am alarm
For the fab fish market tour

You can walk around the coastline
Have drinks at Berry Head
Dinner at Shoals or Lytehouse
Or watch the harbour from your bed

You’ll have much fun in Brixham
Whatever you choose to do
We were lucky enough to stay here
Ian and Liz …. Thank You!


Jon and Lisa

25 – 28 May 2019

Thanks Ian and Liz for maintaining such an exceptional level.  Our 5th visit was just as good as the first.  The welcome makes us feel instantly relaxed.

Recommend Shoals and Breakwater Bistro very highly.  This time we tried brunch at the Curious Kitchen – lovely.

Look forward to seeing you again as we will definitely be back for number 6.

Thanks, Jon and Lisa.

Dave and Tina

18 – 25 May 2019

Our second visit and just as good as last year – even the weather surpassed itself.

Thank you Ian and Liz, this holiday home is the best we have occupied in 47 years of self-catering – it is brilliant and thank you for all the goodies.

It was great re-visiting Brixham and finding places not already explored. Would highly recommend travelling to Torquay by ferry and visiting The Living Coast, well worth a visit.

Also Quay 57 – the fish kebabs are brilliant.

Again, thank you.

Caroline and Mark

11 – 18 May 2019

A lovely week in this lovely apartment for the second time.

Lovely welcome from Liz and Ian, great base for exploring Brixham and beyond and we even got to see Sammy the seal (and his friends) by the breakwater.

Recommend: Breakwater Bistro for lunch or dinner walk up the breakwater to the lighthouse, also Quay 57 next door.


Marg and Rob

7 – 11 May 2019

We have had a relaxing few days.

Thursday we went on the bus to Totnes and had an enjoyable day there, we found a nice pub for lunch and today its been sunny.  The other things we are wanting to visit we hope to do in July.  thank you both for our stay in your fabulous apartment.

This is our 7th visit!!

Thank you

Liz and Mark

Luke and Sophie

5 – 7 April 2019

We came here on two recommendations and have been blown away by the wonderfulness of the apartment.  From the meet-on-arrival, to the knowledge you have of the local area, the treats in the apartment and everything else in between, you are both exemplary hosts – thank you.

We know we will be back again!

All the best

Luke and Sophie


Karen and Mark

29 – 31 March 2019

Thank you Ian and LIz, last minute weekend break.

What a fantastic apartment, cosy, clean, quirky and just felt so warm and inviting.  The personal touches plus all the accessories, you name it you have thought of it.  You have thought of everything, so glad I choose Brixham, its been a wonderful mini break.  We went to Paignton Zoo, Berry Head, the pub you recommended and ate at Berry Head bistro and cafe and Beamers, both lovely food and great staff.  You really have done an amazing job and should be very proud of what you have achieved to give us the perfect break.  And of course the personal meet and greet was an extra lovely touch too.

All our thanks

Karen and Mark xx

Cal and Mac

22 – 25 March 2019

Our 3rd stay here in 4 months which should say it all.  There is nothing at all Ian and Liz could do to make it any better.  They have got everything just right and with all the extras, milk, tea, coffee, sugar, cream tea, bubbly, your holiday starts as soon as you walk through the door.

Thank you again Ian and Liz you really do know how to do things right.

See you again soon.

Cal and Mac x

11 – 16 March 2019

Thank you both for a lovely stay.

The apartment and location was stunning, very relaxing and just what I needed.

Hope to see you again very soon.

Many thanks.


Helen and Dave

7 – 10 March 2019

What a lovely weekend.  The apartment was perfect and Ian and Liz are wonderful hosts.  They made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived.  Their thoughtful touches from helping carry bags to the cream tea and fizz were great.

Hate to leave but can’t wait to get home to tell friends and family about this fantastic place.

Mags and Stuart

26 February – 2 March 2019

What a fantastic gem of a place.  Completely worthy of a 10/10 on review.  Very comfy and ouzes quality.

Ian and Liz thank you for our welcome and Stuarts birthday gifts, very much appreciated and so thoughtful.

The apartment One Fisherman’s Loft is fabulous, you have thought of everything to make our stay so enjoyable.  We tried some of your many recommendations – bought an explorer ticket and visited Kingswear -> Dartmouth, ferry to Totnes, bus to Paignton and back to Brixham staying a few hours in each resort.  Also tried Prince William for carvery – very nice, The Bullers, The Manor Pub again nice and Nick’s fish and chips.

We have had a wonderful time that started with great hosts – we will definitely be back.

Thank you x

Sue and Dave

19 – 24 February 2019

We concur with everything written before regarding the apartment and hosts – 10/10.

– Restaurants – Breakwater Bistro great for breakfast and lunch with a view.  The Cowshed was very good too (alley opposite Prince William Statue).

– Places to see, Coleton Fishacre, home of the D’Oyly Cartes, was excellent.  Paignton easily accessible via the #12 bus service, but don’t bother, pretty depressing place.

– Walks – South towards Berry Head and on to Shakham point. Lovely views and about 5-6 mile round trip.

Northwards along coastal path to Broadsands is also worth it.  Again about 5-6 miles.

– Great butchers on Fore Street and fishmongers opposite market square (on way to apartment parking place).

Brixham really is a wonderful place to stay and One Fisherman’s Loft a wonderful apartment.

Martin and Sally

15 – 19 February 2019

Thank you both for a wonderful stay in your apartment, which has everything you need and more.

It has been our first visit to Brixham and we have loved it.

Thank you for being wonderful hosts and we hope to return. x

Cal and Mac

8 – 11 February 2019

Ian and Liz

We are back again for another stay in your wonderful apartment.  A more relaxing one than in Dec.  So spent more time in the apartment taking it easy which is not hard to do as it has such a homely feel especially with a cuppa and a cream tea.

Just love staying here a big 5 stars yet again.

See you again next month.  Thanks again.

Cal and Mac xx

Thank you for making our ‘Happy Place’ even better.  There is not much to tell us about Brixham as we come here so often.  But your apartment is by far the best we have stayed in.  There is nothing you have not thought of.  It is absolutely spotless and all the little extras.  You meeting us at the door helping us with our bags, cream tea, prosecco, milk, treats.

But the icing on the cake has to be the christmas tree.

Thank you we will be back!!


Steve and Morag

30 November – 2 December 2018

Ian and Liz

Thought our previous stay was the romance of our wedding that made our stay here so magical.

However having shared our 1st anniversary at your beautiful home has proved it is the simplicity and “PERFECTION” of the loft that made our stay worthwhile.

Yes there may be bigger places but yours is by far the best in our hearts.

I do love your policy of stay and pay twice get the 3rd stay free! See you soon 🙂 x

Thank you for being you!  The bubbles and treats you guys are as beautiful as your home!!

Alison and Ross

26 – 28 November 2018

Wow, wonderful apartment. Our stay felt like a balm!

All the lovely ‘extras’ were much appreciated.  We hope to return.

Michele, Mark and Amie

23 – 25 November 2018

Well what can we say.  This is our second stay here and it was just as fabulous as the first time.

Very thoughtful touches make it very welcoming and the apartment is everything you could ask for with such a beautiful view.

Visited Lupton House Christmas Fair which was just lovely followed by Brixham’s Lights and Illuminations.  Had lovely meals at Shoals and Quay 57 both thoroughly enjoyable.

Thank you so much Liz and Ian.

Love, Michele, Mark and Amie


Jeanette and Kevin

17 – 22 November 2018

The accommodation has everything you need, a real home from home. 🙂

Brixham is a lovely place, the views from your apartment are brilliant.

This place is an absolute credit to you Liz and Ian.

Thank you.

Tracy and Richard


Carole and Ray

7 – 11 October 2018

All I really want to say is thank you Ian and Liz.

You certainly deserve all the compliments heaped upon you.  We really enjoyed staying in the flat and all the lovely people in the town of Brixham.  This visit I (Carole) experienced the Fish Market tour with the amazing Barry and all the other great personalities at that venue.  Do go and have a chat with Jake at the veg shop near the Co-op.  A young man with many great ideas and lovely fresh veg.  Simply Fish fish and chip shop lovely happy plaice.

Caroline and Mark

4 – 7 October 2018

Lovely apartment, great welcome by Ian and Liz, very thoughtful touches from the scones to the lottery cards and sweets.  Great base to explore Brixham, we will be back to this lovely place.


On The Rocks – great chicken wings and steak.

Liberty for a cocktail.

JR’s Pirate Cove for fish and the lovely cosy Manor pub at the top.

Malcolm and Karen

2 – 4 October 2018

Apartments don’t get any better than this!

Location perfect.

Hosts very thoughtful.

Interior impeccable and so tasteful.

We will be back.

Carol and Howard

29 September – 2 October 2018

Thank you Ian for the welcome and particularly well done for single handedly cleaning the apartment in record time so we could move in early!  Liz should be proud of you!

The apartment is one of the best we have stayed in, so tastefully furnished and clean, and we will certainly recommend it to all our contacts.

Hope to come back.

Andrew and Eleanor

19 – 29 September 2018

Wonderful stay.  Everything and more from an apartment from the greeting to the extra special touches.

Barry and Jackie

Thank you Liz and Ian we had a lovely time here in Brixham, and staying in your beautiful apartment, everything was perfect, and thank you for all the treats you left.  We will be back but next time for longer, we will look forward to seeing you both then.

Richard and Boze

14 – 17 September 2018

Thank you Ian and Liz for a fabulous apartment right in the heart of Brixham.

Beautiful views of the harbour, perfectly located and with parking!  The accommodation is faultless, beautifully clean, everything you could possibly want, not to mention all the ‘extra goodies’.  Thanks also for the recommendations, have had some splendid meals while we’ve been here.

Would definitely come again.

Thank you again, Rich and Boze.


Jayne and Steve

All I can say is fantastic – stress relief.

Took me back to my childhood! xx

Lush bed, great stay!!

Everything to hand, 10+!!

The Hendersons

Thank you very much for a fantastic “Fishstock” weekend.  Perfect weather, accommodation and company!


4 – 7 September 2018

Position, furnishings, cleanliness, welcome, peaceful, everything superb, treats – what a lovely surprise.

Already recommended to others.

I’ll definitely be back.

A massive thank you!

Helen and Calvin

1 – 4 September 2018

What a lovely home away from home.  Everything you could possibly need and want has been thought out and provided for.  Brixham and the surrounding area are beautiful, we very much enjoyed our walks to Berry Head and a stop off at Berry Head hotel is a must.  We also recommend Simply Fish for fish n chips and The Curious Kitchen for breakfast.  We’ve had such a lovely time here we just wish we had planned to stay longer.  Hope to be back again soon!

Louise and Andy

25 August – 1 September 2018

Thank you Ian and Liz, we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your lovely, well equipped apartment.  Everything we could of wished for was here, you have thought of supplying anything we might need!

For the first year, I swam most days in the Shoalstone outdoor pool – I don’t know why I haven’t used it before, once in it is really enjoyable.  Andy found various scenic routes for running and enjoyed a bit of fishing – many thanks.

Doug and Alison

11 – 18 August 2018

We heartily concur with the praise for this wonderful apartment.  The attention to detail and care are unmatched!


Vicky and Andy

4 – 11 August 2018

A huge THANK YOU to our hosts Liz and Ian – we can’t say anything different to anyone else – you are the perfect hosts.  The accommodation is fantastic – you have thought of everything and more!  The little touches also make the stay even more special.  Loved the scones, prosecco and scratch cards (unfortunately we didn’t win!).  Brixham is a stunning place and really appreciated the recommendations from Liz and Ian – The Manor Pub is a definite must – the perfect local.  Other places we would recommend are the Lytehouse, Peppershack and Rockfish.  Loved the walks too – some gorgeous quiet coves to relax in.  We have had a fantastic holiday and Fisherman’s Loft has played an enormous part in it.  Thank you.

Mike, Elcie and Cheska

28 July – 4 August 2018

The accommodation and location are absolutely fantastic.

Thank you Liz and Ian for being such welcoming hosts.  We’ve enjoyed our stay very much!

Anne and Colin

23 – 28 July 2018

Ditto to all of the above comments.  Brixham and surroundings has been just as lovely as we remembered it and 1 Fisherman’s Loft is the proverbial ‘icing on the cake’ (with added prosecco etc. etc!).  We will remember this exceptional hot summer not just for the weather (which may be the norm of the future) but for our week as guests in this exceptional apartment.

We may well return at some point but, meanwhile, we must thank Liz and Ian for their lovely welcome and all round attention to detail and care.

Many thanks!!

Alison and Jason, Stoke on Trent, Staffs

18 – 23 July 2018

Thank you Liz and Ian for being such amazing hosts.  You could not wish to be greeted by a more lovely couple.  The apartment is amazing with wonderful views, it has been lovely to sit in the window and watch the world go by.  The loft is so well equipped, there is nothing you could want for.  The little touches make such a special difference, we will be returning soon.

Thank you for making our holiday so special. xxx

Andrew and Sandra – Stratford Upon Avon

15 – 18 July 2018

WOW – What a break.

First to be greeted by Ian and Liz, who truly are amazing hosts.  Helped with bags, and shown round the wonderful apartment, which is spotless, cozy and very homely.

Ian and Liz have provided everything you could possibly need, all the little extras are just brill.

Their knowledge about the area was great and we have eaten in some lovely restaurants (probably eaten too much), and apart from the odd shower the weather has been fantastic.  Only down note , fish market tour was fully booked, but we will be back!!

Fen and Pete – Stone, Staffs

Great holiday again thanks to our hosts.  We have not wanted for anything.

Can not thank you enough for the ‘Fish and Chip Cruise’ tickets.  It was a wonderful night and hope its on next year when we come down, if so ‘tickets please!’.

Looking forward to seeing you in April.

Best wishes to both.

Fen and Pete xx

Marg and Rob – Chippenham

28 June – 1 July 2018

This is our return visit and nice to see Ian and Liz once again, who do so much to make your stay enjoyable.

We have has amazing weather which was very hot, almost too hot (for us anyway).  So we haven’t been too energetic.

Thank you for all the treats .  We will be back again soon.

Take care.

Marg and Rob xx

Deborah and Gary – Edinburgh

Thanks for the treats!  We have had a brilliant time.

Greenway is a good day out.  Shoals at the Lido served amazing food with a view (ask for a window seat) and had a lovely meal sitting outside the Berry Head Hotel.  The Goan fish curry made by the Goan chef ‘Canon’ was delicious!

Thanks very much – you are great hosts.

D and G

John and Ros – Kidderminster

20 – 23 June 2018

Thank you Liz and Ian.

The flat is perfect – spotless and super comfy.

It was lovely to get all of your welcoming treats, so thoughtful.  Wonderful weather as promised!  We visited Agatha Christie’s Greenway – very beautiful and very interesting.

A trip on the river at Dartmouth was also great value with a sighting of Britain’s maritime new aircraft carrier out at sea.  Brilliant food at ‘On The Rocks’ and ‘Rockfish’.  Thank you so much – we can’t wait to return.

John and Ros x

Fiona and David – Newbury

17 – 20 June 2018

Ian and Liz, you are such great hosts, you have provided the perfect place to stay, with all the lovely extras.  We love the fantastic views, your local pictures and nautical themes.

The bed is comfy and the towels are lush, you really have thought of everything to make our stay special.  This is the best place to base yourself to explore Brixham and beyond, which we have started but will be back again to explore more.

Til then, thank you.

Fiona and David x

Karren and Mark – Andover, Hampshire

14 – 17 June 2018

What can we say that hasn’t been already?  Your apartment is brilliantly located, your attention to detail second to none – all the extras make our stay extra special, all the recommendations are spot on (although we didn’t get to try them all!).  The ‘Guardhouse Best’ breakfast sarnies were particularly good as was the fish at “Shoals”.  Fish and chips from “Nicks” on the harbour front was also good.  We hopped on the ferry to torquay (£3 return) and the fudge shop (Rolys) near the ferry port is amazing (Gin and Lemon fudge etc!!).

The trawler race was a little soggy in the morning but otherwise a lovely weekend away, we’ll be back.  Many thanks.

Karren and Mark

Bakery and cheese shop also worth a visit!

Lyn and Peter

10 – 14 June 2018

Thank you so much Liz and Ian – we have had a wonderful stay in your apartment.  You have thought of everything!  Your attention to detail is second to none, the little ‘extras’ are so thoughtful.  But where you shine through is your thoughtfulness to meet us, helping with luggage etc.  We’ve never known of that before!!  This has been a wonderful return to Brixham for us after a very very long break – we certainly won’t leave it so long next time!!  We look forward to staying here again many many thanks!  Lyn and Peter xx

Nora and Gordon – New Zealand

5 – 10 June 2018

Disclosure:  We are neither relatives, friends, friends of friends of “Mine Hosts” Liz and Ian.

Hence following report is totally unbiased, no incentives have been offered/accepted!!!

As frequent worldwide travellers since retiring over 17 years ago we have stayed in many apartments – One Fisherman’s Loft rates in our “Top 3”.

“Location, Location, Location” as per real estate parlance, magnificent view over Brixham harbour.

Convenient to transport, shops, pubs, restaurants etc.  Comfortable, well appointed.

“Mine Hosts” Liz and Ian:

#One, the best we have had the pleasure of meeting.  You two are the measure to which all others should aspire, awesome! (or oarsome in nautical parlance!). e.g. :

“Goodies” on arrival, “Treasure Chest”, box of adaptor plugs, puzzles/games for rainy days.  WIFI – free, stable/reliable/fast.

Local knowledge such as dining out/sightseeing/public transport etc.

Reference book is exceptionally well laid out, informative – covers everything you need to know . . . . and some.  Going above and beyond the call of duty: Meet and greet at front door – helped us with 2 heavy suitcases, 2 cabin bags, several supermarket bags (we’re on the road for more than 2 months).  Nuff said!!

6 Star – Property and Hosts

Overall Rating: 11/10 (that is not a mistake)

Value for money: Excellent

Would we stay here again: Absolutely!


Jennifer and Laina

3 – 5 June 2018

A wonderful stay in a beautiful apartment.  So well equipped with thoughtful touches.  Luxurious linen and towels made us so comfortable.

Lovely welcome and help to unpack the car too!

Really enjoyed exploring Brixham – such a great position.

Fantastic fish and views from the apartment lovely at night.  Wish we could of stayed longer.

Absolutely 5 star!



Lyn and Steve

29 – 31 May 2018

Thank you for a lovely stay.

The apartment is beautiful and all the little touches were most appreciated.  Steve won £10 on the scratchcard!

We enjoyed our visit to the fish market.

We also had a great time exploring Brixham and cocktails in Libertys.  Thank you for the recommendation.


Catherine, John, Olivia and Georgia

25 – 29 May 2018

We had a wonderful stay.  The location was perfect and we hardly left Brixham at all as we found so much to do.

All the little extras were very welcome.

We enjoyed a Funfish trip as well as great food in Shoals and Breakwater Bistro.


Jan and Ken – Lightwater, Surrey

21 – 25 May 2018

We have had a fantastic stay in your wonderful apartment, and also in sunny Brixham, with the lovely scenery and food (great fish and chips).

Thank you Liz and Ian for all the extra goodies!

We hope to see you both again in the not too distant future. xx


Dave and Tina – Yorkshire

12 – 19 May 2018

What can we say that is different to everyone else – this is a brilliant apartment, ideally located with everything and more you could want.

Thank you Ian and Liz for not only all the goodies but the wonderful welcome.

We’ve loved every minute of this week – all the brilliant fish meals not to mention Liberty’s great cocktails and great evening entertainment.  We could easily live down here although our livers might not feel the same.

It was a brilliant week and we will be back.

Thank you so much.


Mike and Lynn – Surrey

8 – 11 May 2018

A beautiful apartment that is in the best location in Brixham.  Everything you could ever want is here and beautifully done.

Thank you to Ian and Liz for the warm welcome, the wonderful extra gifts and for some great recommendations.

We loved walking to Berry Head and to Churston Cove.  Had a great crab sandwich at the Crown and Anchor and lovely meals at ‘On The Rocks’ and ‘Simply Fish Bistro’.  Also recommend the fish market tour with breakfast at Rockfish.

We will return.

Thank you 🙂


Wendy and Steve – Romford, Essex

4 – 7 May 2018

Many many thanks Liz and Ian for letting us stay once again at the beautiful loft.

Everything was perfect, same as last year, and what with the unbelievable weather for the bank holiday weekend, and a town full of pirates having fun, it has been a wonderful repeat experience.

Thanks once again for all the little extras and see you next year.

Ooooh Arrrgh!!


Bryony and Martin

2 – 4 May 2018

Wow what an amazing apartment!

We loved our little stay in Brixham and will definitely be back for longer next time.  Thanks for the recommendation of Shoals – beautiful place!  And Liberties – loved the cocktails 🙂

Thanks Ian and Liz for making our first visit to Brixham a lovely and enjoyable one and we loved all the little added gifts in the apartment!

We will no doubt be back 🙂

Bryony and Martin


Sarah and David – Gloucester

28 – 30 April 2018

What a lovely flat, fantastic views, clean and tidy, the little attention to detail is lovely, would defo come back.

What a lovely welcome too from Ian and Liz, wasn’t expecting the cream teas, bottle of bubbly.

Cannot fault the finishing touches that you guys do.


Thank you


Ian and Rita – Hindhead

24 – 28 April 2018

A lovely few days here.  Location is wonderful and the apartment is well kitted out with everything we could wish for.  Thank you for all the extra touches.

We enjoyed the cafes and eateries especially the Breakwater Bistro – reasonably priced fresh food and the best and the best fish and chips at Simply Fish.

Hope to return some time soon!

Thank you.

Marg and Rob

22 – 24 April 2018

Its lovely to return to Liz and Ian’s apartment for a short stay for Rob’s birthday.  We have been a few times now and its always great to come back.

Thanks to Liz and Ian for all the extras, they are such a lovely couple.

We saw the seal this morning on our walk to Fishcombe which was very exciting.

See you again soon.

Marg and Rob


Dave and Sue – Barry

19 – 22 April 2018

Regarding our hosts and their property there’s nothing new we can add.  Both absolutely faultless.  We followed Liz and Ian’s food and drink rec’s too.

– Shoals is first class fish restaurant.

– Breakwater Bistro – lovely for food, or just drinks, plus cracking views.

– Claws Indoors does lovely smoked salmon and scrambled breakfast with bucks fizz!

– Rockfish is OK but the family run eateries are better.

– New Quay Inn friendly and decent beer.

– Simply Fish takeaway – Simply the best.

We’ll be back to check out the rest another time.

15 – 18 April 2018

Absolutely stunning apartment.  We were here for our silver wedding anniversary after initially coming here (Brixham) for our honeymoon in 1993.

Fisherman’s Loft was the most perfect place to stay – perfect location and Ian and Liz were wonderful hosts leaving lots of treats for us and such a well equipped bathroom/kitchen.

Thank you so much for letting us stay in Fisherman’s Loft.  We didn’t want to leave!

Vanessa and Tony

12 – 15 April 2018

What a beautiful apartment and gorgeous place.

We have had a super time here in Brixham and at Fisherman’s Loft.

Thank you so much for the “extra goodies”, what a lovely touch.

We definitely will be coming back here and wouldn’t stay anywhere else.

The apartment is so clean and pretty you couldn’t ask for more and meeting us so late Liz.  Thank you once again.

Vanessa and Tony


Jane and Terry

9 – 11 April 2018

We have had an amazing time staying in this beautiful apartment (so much so we have bought a house further along the coast!!).

All the “extras” you supply makes this place very special and you should be very proud of the service you offer.

The view is mesmerizing, but we have to go home.

Big thank you.

Jane and Terry x

Sally and Caroline

6 – 9 April 2018

Thank you.  It has been a real joy to stay here, we have had a really wonderful, relaxing weekend.  Made all the more special because of the lovely extra touches that you have provided.

We will both be recommending this beautiful apartment and hosts to all our friends.

Love Kristy and Dips


P.S. We got engaged 🙂

Paul and Karen – Kidderminster, Worcestershire

30 March – 2 April 2018 (Easter)

We have fallen in love with Brixham it is a shame we couldn’t have stayed longer.  We have been on some lovely walks – we caught the ferry to Torquay and walked back along the coastal path.

Thank you Ian and Liz for letting us share your lovely apartment.  We had a lovely welcome from you and the lovely treats you left us were an added bonus.  It is true what other guests have said you think of everything to make the stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

We hope to return again soon.

Thank you again.


Stephanie and Jeremy

16 – 19 March 2018

A delightful stay in a home from home atmosphere created by your marvellous attention to detail.  Your warm welcome and care from delicious scones with clotted cream on arrival to the bright, cheerful and comfortable surroundings in the apartment made our stay in blizzard conditions as much fun as it could have been in sunny weather.

Thank you.  We could not have had better hosts or a better holiday.

Ann and Duncan Carter from Banbury

12 – 16 March 2018

As promised after our first visit, we are back to explore the wonderful scenery.

We will definitely be back for a third time as there is so much to see.

Thanks again Liz and Ian for this home from home.

Clare and Tom (Gloucester)

8 – 11 March 2018

We have had the most relaxing stay in the most superb location.  Ian and Liz have definitely thought of everything, from keeping the flat immaculate, to all the necessities that one would need whilst away from home.  You are incredible hosts and the welcome gifts were very thoughtful.  All your recommendations have been very useful and we have managed to venture out plenty despite the unlucky rain!

We hope to be back again and have already got parents coming in September!

Thanks again for everything!


Peter and Sarah

28 February – 4 March 2018

We have stayed in many self catering apartments, flats and cottages – and so far, have never found a place so well equipped with so many thoughtful touches.

Your helpful welcome was very much appreciated and despite the ‘arctic’ weather we certainly enjoyed our stay in your cosy apartment.  Hope you enjoyed your fish and chips!  We did!

Thanks for everything.


George and Ruth from London

23 – 25 February 2018

Had such a relaxing weekend away.  The flat is amazing and the treats you both left out was such a nice touch.

Enjoyed relaxing walks along the coast, and the pub recommendations were great!

Tim and Effie from Birmingham

20 – 23 February 2018

Thank you so much for a lovely stay in your apartment.  The level of detail was incredible and you had thought of everything we could possibly need.  The welcome goodies were so nice too.

We have had a great stay in Brixham and thank you for the recommendations on the pies at the Golden Lion and The Manor!

Thank you Ian and Liz!


Val and Steve from Derby

3 – 17 February 2018

What can we possibly say, that has not been said already?

A wonderful apartment and we’ve had a lovely stay in Brixham.

One very tiny disappointment (and not with the apartment!) is that some of the attractions we hoped to visit were closed at this time of year, despite being “advertised” as “all year round”.  Never mind – we’ll have to return!

Thank you very much.

Jemma – from near Bristol

1 – 3 February 2018

Firstly, what great hosts you have been.  Contacting me to see what my travel arrangements were and then meeting me at the bus stop to deliver me safely to the apartment.

The apartment itself is beautiful with fantastic views!  Decorated to a very high standard and kitted out with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay – plus the extra lovely treats!

You are very warm, friendly and personable people and I wish you every luck with what seems to be a thriving apartment let business.

I will be writing a very positive review on TripAdvisor because you have gone ‘above and beyond’ all expectations.  Hope to return again some day.



Joel and Caroline – Corsham, Wiltshire

29 – 31 January 2018

Wow . . . What a wonderful apartment in such a beautiful location.  A fantastic welcome from Ian and Liz who explained all about the local attractions.

Highly recommend an early morning walk out to Berry Head and breakfast at the Gate House Cafe which was superb and reasonably priced.

The apartment has everything you could possibly need; is warm and welcoming, and the views are outstanding.

The ‘goodies’ left for our arrival were very much appreciated; and all the little necessities are also catered for should you forget anything (as I did!).

We will most definitely be returning!!!

Mark and Kim from Southampton

22 – 25 January 2018

Just lovely, thank you for the kind welcome gifts, you are very good at this.  We will tell everyone to come.

Like a home from home, so comfortable.

Lovely to meet you, hope to see you again.

Thank you for a lovely stay and all the little touches.


Anne and Graham – Hertfordshire

3 – 6 January 2018

Absolutely fabulous apartment in a great location.  The warm welcome we received on arrival was greatly appreciated; as were all the amazing treats we discovered.  Thank you so much Ian and Liz.  Only downside was that we couldn’t stay longer.

Lee and Serena

27 December 2017 – 1 January 2018

Thank you for a wonderful stay – been hassle free.  Very warm welcome with some generous goodies upon arrival.  The apartment has been fantastic with needing nothing and Brixham being everything we were hoping for.  Will be recommending highly.

Amazing time, thank you and Happy New Year.

Jenny and Mick Avery

23 – 27 December 2017

Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely apartment, the previous reviews say it all.  You have thought of everything to make your guests as comfortable as possible.

This is our 7th or 8th stay in Brixham but this has been the best accommodation we have been in.

Thank you very much for all the goodies you left for us.

Love Jenny and Mick Avery

One word about our stay with Ian and Liz – INCREDIBLE.

You guys are just incredible hosts and made our stay here fantastico.


Steve and Morag Reeves

2 – 6 December 2017

Your home is rubbish . . .

These are words you will “NEVER” hear.

I honestly don’t know where to start, from the moment you met us on our wedding evening we could feel your warmth and generosity – the food and drink that you got for us, the champagne a magnificent gesture – your apartment is a beautiful dream to stay in, suitably small but like a tardis – BIG.  The attention to detail superb – phone chargers, toiletries, sewing equipment etc. etc.

Thank you for our special honeymoon stay, can we come to stay again please?

Love Steve and Morag 🙂 x


29 November – 1 December 2017

Wow!  What an amazing apartment, the views are stunning.  The ‘goodies’ were a lovely surprise.

The apartment is superbly furnished and spotless!

I only regret that I couldn’t stay longer, but will definitely be coming back.

Thank you 🙂

Dan and Kate

13 – 15 November 2017

We have had a wonderful time in Brixham and it was made extra special thanks to this fantastic apartment: clean, comfy and offering the best views in town!  The tourist advice offered by Ian and the lovely extras made our time here very special.  We hope to return soon.  Diolch.

Thank you for a wonderful experience in the lovely Brixham.

The ‘Treasure’ in the apartment just kept coming and was a very lovely touch.  The apartment itself was incredibly planned and spotlessly clean.

We would definitely come back and have already recommended it to our friend.

Thank you both.

Rose and Bill.

What a welcome and fabulous first impression this lovely apartment makes.

We had a fantastic time.  The Shoals restaurant was the best – gluten free batter yum!

Walking to Dartmouth via coastal path was a challenge but definitely memorable.

We couldn’t have asked for more in the apartment – Thank you so much.

22 – 25 October 2017

Having seen the photos and read the reviews, we were kind of hoping that this apartment would be good.  “Good” doesn’t do it justice.  Perfectly located with amazing views, Ian and Liz have thought of everything to ensure everyone has a perfect time here.  The “Welcome Gifts” go above and beyond.  We really liked the way the apartment has been furnished; we’ve stayed in so many places where the decor or appliances are tatty and ‘just functional’.

No 1 is well thought out and beautifully decorated.  The bed is very comfortable and towels thick.  During wet weather we were happy to relax in the warm and dry.

I don’t think we can add anything new to what has been said already . . . . you have a lovely apartment with an amazing view and great location.  The little “Welcome Gifts” were a lovely touch.  Just wish we could have stayed longer!!

One word “AMAZING”.

Customer service par excellence.

Liz and Ian – you are a lovely couple – thanks so much for helping to make our 1st (not last) stay in Brixham so memorable!

What a find!

Excellent accommodation in a superb location; who could want for more?

Ian and Liz made us very welcome, the local guide and welcome pack were a great help on getting our bearings.

We are reluctantly leaving, but relaxed and refreshed.

We are already planning when we can visit again.

Regards and thanks

Thank you Ian and Liz for a fantastic break away.  Your apartment is beautiful and the views are just fab!  We loved Shoals and the Breakwater, and of course Liberties!  Some of the more unusual pubs were great fun too! 🙂

25 – 28 September 2017

This is our 1st visit to Brixham, we’ve wanted to come ever since watching “Fish Town” on T.V.

Ian and Liz, thank you!  For welcoming us and showing us the local sights.

Your apartment is top notch and the little touches, decor, down to the basket of “essentials” in the bathroom, are fantastic.  The views were better than we expected and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Best wishes

17 – 24 September 2017

First time in Brixham and we hope to return.

This apartment is amazing, beautifully furnished and well equipped, we cooked a couple of nights and stayed in enjoying the lovely lights twinkling in the harbour.  We were spoilt for choice the nights we went out to eat but decided on The Cowshed, Golden Lion pie night, The Market House and a takeaway (Kebab house, Fore Street) – which were all really great.  Tea, cake or cocktails – try Liberty – so lovely.

So many places to visit close by – here are a few of our recommendations – Cockington Village and Gardens, Greenway House and Gardens, Burgh Island and not forgetting gorgeous coastal walks.

We went to Torquay on the ferry , £3 each return – bargain and you get information on the way over.

Thank you Ian and Liz, you have thought of everything and the gifts/provisions are a lovely touch.

8 – 17 September 2017

We love Brixham and have stayed here a few times but by far this apartment is the best place to stop!  What a beautiful place you have, love it!  Location is superb!

All the extra touches around the flat really made our stay extra special!

Loved all the recommendations made too . . . . we didn’t get around to trying them all but what a great excuse to come back!

Thank you Ian and Liz, what a great couple you are!

Dear Liz and Ian

We had a lovely 3 days here.

The apartment and its location didn’t fail to impress, all the special extras just added to what was a perfect short break.

Will recommend and return.

Dear Liz and Ian – Thank you so much for our four night stay!

This was our ‘Girlie’ sisters break (much needed)!!

We had a fab time, your apartment is amazing, as Jen had told us! – don’t want to leave, weather has been fantastic (bonus!).

Ian and Liz

This is our second stay and its been just as good as the ‘1st’.

Home from home with a dash of salt water and sea air.

We’ve had a great time and charged our batteries.  I’m sure we will return to ‘No. 1’ again xx

P.S. Thanks for all the treats!

Tina and Paul

12 – 19 August 2017

Ian and Liz thank you so much for our warm welcome, homely gifts and all the recommendations that we thoroughly enjoyed trying out.  The apartment is so comfortable the location is stunning and the fine detail and finishing touches are so thoughtful.

We will be taking some beautiful memories back home with us.

We made every day count with some amazing views on our walks especially at Berry Head.  Greenways – Agatha Christie’s house was a personal bucket list and you both made this all possible.

So thank you both we loved every minute! xx

Maeve and Bruce

6 – 11 August 2017

This is possibly the best accommodation I have ever stayed in.  Loved the location, spent many hours looking out the window at the great view.  Everything was just perfect.  Thank you.

Thanks also for the treats they were great.

Rob and Sue

5 – 7 August 2017

A very enjoyable weekend break.  A friendly welcome followed by numerous treats around the apartment that were very much appreciated.

Pictures of the apartment and views have been sent to family and friends recommending the Fisherman’s Loft to all!

Thank you
