  • "We had a great week despite the weather."

    No hand sanitizer by front door. We were also very confused over the recycling, we asked a neighbour who explained to us on what to do .

    Mrs MatthewsOct 2021

  • "Very good location and fantastic sea views."

    We enjoyed sitting out on the south facing balcony in the sunshine, and there is also a conservatory downstairs which has good views of the bay. Clean and comfortable and a good location for exploring South Devon.

    Mrs OliverOct 2021

  • "The property is in a lovely location, in a wonderful part of Devon for places to visit."

    Sadly the accommodation is a little tired and did not look as good as the photos. The ensuite is very small and the shower difficult to get right. The sofa's are a bit hard but all other seating and beds were comfortable. Fortunately we were blessed with wonderful weather which made our stay a very memorable experience.

    Mr TaylorSep 2021

  • "The property wasn’t very clean, there was dog hair everywhere and quite a few of the bowls had what looked like pasta sauce still in them."

    There was significant dust and dirt all over the staircase and generally it was quite dirty and not what we have come to expect. It’s a bit disappointing especially when you are telling everyone that they the cleaners need longer to clean as a result of COVID and you are asking everyone to check in later and check out earlier and we get there and it looks like it hasn’t been cleaned at all. This will not stop us from returning so hopefully this was just a one off.

    Mr CarterJul 2021

  • "Excellent location with fantastic sea and beach views that were well served with verandas and patio."

    Spacious/living dining room. Small but well equipped kitchen. Comfortable beds. Loos on both floors. Shed had BBQ and beach ware made available. All made an excellent stay. Would like to return another year but 50% price hike has definitely put me off. Will look elsewhere.

    Mr VielvoyeJul 2021

  • "House needs money spending on it couldn’t use outside seats on veranda full of year of sea gull poo."

    Mr BarnesJun 2021

  • "Sykes details of this property were perfect."

    We will be back.

    Mrs OrileyMay 2021

  • "Would be useful to comment that its quite a steep climb back from the beach."

    That aside position is great and views stunning

    Miss BaileyApr 2021

  • "Peace and tranquillity in this crazy world we all live in."

    Mr FoxOct 2020

  • "Whilst I understand the extra time needed for Covid cleaning, expecting people ..."

    Whilst I understand the extra time needed for Covid cleaning, expecting people to be out by 9am is too early especially as we have to strip all of the beds before this

The property

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.

6 Tarifa is a splendid seaside base for a memorable coastal holiday.

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.
