    The location of Cobbles Point was great, and the views were outstanding. We loved the decked outside area, but it would have been improved by loungers. However, we were disappointed with the cleanliness of the cottage and felt it was in need of a decorative update, both inside and out, including furniture. We didn’t expect to have to recycle bottles ourselves. We also found the outside bins inadequate for 8 people. ***OWNER RESPONSE*** We are delighted you enjoyed the situation of the property but sorry to hear that the rest did not meet your expectations. Our cleaner's work hard to maintain a high standard and in terms of decoration, we disagree with these comments. Before this year's letting season we had two new bathrooms installed, a new floor in the kitchen, new doors and windows and new carpets. Parts of the house were painted and some new furniture was purchased alongside new artwork to update the property. The pictures show the property clearly on the HH site and the property is as described – a converted barn, not a 5* luxurious apartment which may have been what you were looking for. We have not had issues before with people finding the bins inadequate for the group size. Unfortunately trade waste does not provide recycling and we are greatly appreciative of guests who take their recycling to the beach car park 650 metres down the hill.

The property

This big split-level cottage attached to another five converted from traditional Devon stone barns is situated 700 yards above the beach in Bigbury-on-Sea.

With fantastic views out to sea, it is private and family friendly accommodation in a brilliant seaside spot.

Open the stable doors into the big kitchen with a dining area and head up five steps into the airy sitting room with its characterful oak floor, cosy wood burning stove and French windows which you can throw open to a sunny deck.

You will find one of the en suite bedrooms down steps from the kitchen and the other three comfortable bedrooms on the same level as the sitting room, one en suite with brilliant sea views and another with doors to the garden.

The view from outside is exceptional too.

Two decks have been raised up at the front to make the most of panoramic views across the Avon estuary and out to sea from your outdoor tables and chairs, perfect for evening drinks and leisurely alfresco dining.

Below the decks is the rest of the garden consisting of safely enclosed, sheltered lawns for sunbathing and playing.

With the fabulous big sandy beach just minutes from the cottage, this is an ideal location for running on the beach, playing beach cricket, making sandcastles and playing in the surf, perhaps by booking some lessons with the popular surf school which also hires out equipment.

The Coast Path is heaven for walkers with fabulous cliff top scenery, or maybe walk across the beach to fascinating Burgh Island and return on the sea tractor.

Kingsbridge and Salcombe are interesting towns for shopping and eating.

Cobbles Point is an exceptional holiday home for relaxing over coastal views and enjoying seaside fun.

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.
