    “Cobbles point was a last minute holiday booking to an area of South Devon we know extremely well.”

    Bigbury on Sea is a beautiful part of the country and Cobbles Point is an excellent property to holiday in whilst exploring this area of the country. The property itself was well presented, well stocked and clean. The layout of the property with three bedrooms at one end with the lounge and kitchen between the other bedroom is particularly useful if you have multiple households. Although it was late October when we stayed, when it wasn't raining and the sun was out, the outside decking was an enjoyable feature with 180 degree views through the glass fencing was marvelous. The beds were comfortable with decent bedding, the carpeted floors, tiled and wooden floors were clean. All the showers and toilets etc worked and appeared to be fairly new and clean. The kitchen had most appliances and more than you would expect to get in most holiday homes, plenty of cutlery and utensils but possibly could do with more plates/bowls. The only negatives we experienced with the property was that there was no firewood on arrival so we had to search the local shops to get some (knowing beforehand that there was none on arrival we would have brought some for a single fire from home) and that the fourth bedroom in silo was cooler (occasionally cold) compared to the rest of the property. The rest of the property was extremely comfortable and warm. Three parking spaces is more than enough for this sized property and excellently placed for walks into Bigbury on sea and Burgh Island either over the fields on the public paths (short and longer routes), down the coastal path and along the beach when the tide is out (over the rocks when safe to do so if the tide is just going out) or a 2 minute drive to the main car park. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cobbles Point and are looking at the limited availability for 2021 to see if we can stay again.

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 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 8 deep 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.
