This apartment is one of seven in a building in Bigbury-on-Sea.
Just 350 yards from the big sandy beach, it is peaceful, light reverse-level accommodation with fantastic sea views.
Step up to your entrance into the spacious sitting room, a lovely place to relax on the squashy sofas or enjoy leisurely meals prepared in the efficient kitchen just through the archway and slide open the full height glass doors on a fine day to the balcony which looks out across the bay and has a table for four to enjoy alfresco meals.
Stairs take you down to the three bedrooms, the en suite double room a cracking space with glass doors through to a charming sunroom with table and chairs which opens to the terrace.
Outside, as well as the balcony, you have a secure shed for stashing your beach stuff and use of the shared lawn which is carefully manicured.
Few can resist the magnetic pull of the spectacular beach below the apartment, a huge stretch of golden sand which stretches to Burgh Island.
Surf, maybe with the popular surf school, build sandcastles or stroll the open space, and walk across to the iconic island which inspired some of Agatha Christie’s mysteries and then catch the long legged sea tractor back at high tide for a ride to remember.
For walkers, the South West Coast Path is just moments from the apartment, a fabulous footpath which climbs and dips to spectacular views and secluded coves.
Golfers can play on Bigbury’s challenging cliff top course and shopaholics will be in seventh heaven in Salcombe and Kingsbridge with their independent shops and fascinating galleries.

About the location
Modbury 6 miles; Plymouth 12 miles.
Bigbury-on-Sea is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is ideal for family holidays. Dusted with sand and lapped by shallow waters, the beach offers safe fun for groups particularly if you’ve got children in tow. In addition, Bigbury-on-Sea beach is dotted with rock pools, so there’s plenty of entertainment for budding marine biologists. There’s also a wide and varied selection of watersports available to visitors who prefer their holidays to feature a little adrenaline rush. Windsurfing and kite-surfing are popular here, with hire facilities located right on the beach. To give you some peace of mind, there are lifeguards present at Bigbury-on-Sea beach during May to September and the beach also has a first-aid room. You can even take the dog onto the beach, although they are restricted to certain areas during the summer. Bigbury’s most famous landmark is Burgh Island, which overlooks the beach itself. The island is accessible at low tide, when the waters reveal a causeway that links it to the beach. However, when the tide is in you can still reach the island by hitching a ride on the popular and unique ‘sea tractor’. Burgh Island boasts an award-winning hotel, elegant and rather genteel, it’s an ideal romantic retreat for couples. Explore the South Devon coast with its fabulous sandy beaches and its breathtakingly beautiful coastal path or simply take time to visit some of the charming estuary towns and villages dotted throughout the area, such as Salcombe, Kingsbridge and Dartmouth. The city of Plymouth and the wild open spaces of Dartmoor are also both close at hand.
