  • "Another great stay at Cobbles Point."

    Location and upgraded garden brilliant, with amazing view. Facilities catered for our needs.

  • "Lovely house in a magical setting."

    Lots of space and good facilities for 7 of us. Everything worked fine, although broadband dropped out when it was a bit stormy but original broadband worked fine during this period for the basics. It was a pleasure to be here and sad to leave. Only negative was the lower bedroom is noticeably colder than the rest of the house, but quilt was good and so we were warm enough sleeping and there is a separate electric fire if needed. Phil

  • "The house was lovely- the views were amazing- we have already booked to go back next year!"

    The only bad point I would mention is we found a few dirty hair rollers by the sofa- the lounge hadn’t been swept and a dirty sock in the bedroom. But overall stay was amazing- would definitely recommended!

  • "Second year in this property."

    The view will always be the selling point, some upgrading of furnishings is needed. Working surfaces in the kitchen are at a premium. Clearly the area is very busy, almost impossible to find parking in Salcombe. Bigbury beach with the views of Burgh Island is a pleasure.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback, we will relay this to the owners for their consideration Property Owner

  • "Yes the WiFi and phone signals were dreadful."

    Not sure if anything could be done about improving but with people in the party under 30, it was a real problem. Personally I was happy to get away from the net. It would be a problem for many people though. The home itself was excellent, great views, excellent facilities such as washing machine and really good for the four legged friends with the kitchen area being easily locked to keep them in. Nice showers and clean accommodation.

    We are really pleased to hear that you enjoyed your break away and that you found the house clean, well equipped and suitable for your four legged friends ? it is a favourite spot for ours too! I just wanted to respond about the phone signal and WIFI. There is nothing that can be done about the poor mobile reception, this has always been an issue across the entire area due to the secluded location. We are in the process of looking into other WIFI providers and will find another if possible and really hope at some point to improve this. Unfortunately, the WIFI is never very good as there are no fibre options yet and we have also tried boosters in the past. It really is a place to escape the daily grind but appreciate this is not for everyone. Property Owner

  • "Cobbles Point is an idyllic getaway."

    From stunning ocean and river views, to the rolling hills and breathtaking walks in the South Hams, what is not to love. Cobbles Point is well equipped and only a 5 minute drive from the local mini-supermarket, so no need to visit any of the bigger towns to get food. I would highly recommend Cobbles Point if you want to get away from it all. You can just sit back and relax, or do some serious hiking or have a go at surfing. A fantastic place.

  • "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.

  • "Great location, never stopped enjoying the view and fortunate enough to eat and drink outside."

    Bedrooms fine and clean, however an odd cobweb in the kitchen but no big deal. Enjoyed the beach at Bigbury, and as much as we love Salcombe it was very busy so happy with the destination choice. Just as an observation the decking, which is the first thing we see needs a good coat of varnish.

  • "The view was great."

    There were some things not working in the kitchen. But instead of fixing them the owners had left notes explaining that they didn’t work!! The hot tap in the kitchen took 10 minutes to fill a bowl. The lower bedroom en-suite looked like something out of the Victorian age and was freezing. The fire was great and the lounge was comfortable. The bed we found most comfortable but only a double. Overall it was acceptable but needs some tlc

  • "The house catered for our needs and to sit outside on the veranda overlooking the estuary was breathtaking."

    Nice touch with dog bowl and biscuits. Negatives: Not friendly for disabled-different levels to property with steep steps. Owner of the farm has on the lower terrace (about 50 yards away) by the side of the balcony has a marquee built on a Friday for wedding parties on a Saturday. Music from this party BLASTING from late afternoon until 11.30 pm. Not all rooms are not on suite. Also the toilet to our room was up a flight of steep steps. Bedding could do with new pillows-flat as pancakes. New towels would be a plus. Shower basin in the room we used the caulking could do with been renewed as parts was black with mould. When paying 4 figures for a weeks rental it needs to be top notch.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback following your recent stay at Cobbles Point. We've spoken with the owner who has asked us to cover the points mentioned in order to help yourselves and reassure future guests.  We're delighted that you enjoyed the views and agree they are incredible. We are sorry that you found some things challenging such as disabled access. We do not however advertise it as being suitable for disabled people and the layout and description of the property is clearly highlighted in the particulars. This is the same for the separate WC for the lower bedroom there is only one en-suite room as advertised. Unfortunately the neighbouring farm and their wedding parties are out of our control, however we have asked that they let guests know in advance if there are any planned weddings. We are pleased to hear that despite the points raised you enjoyed your stay at Cobbles Point. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful family week at cobbles point."

    The accommodation was spacious and well furnished and very homely. All of the bedrooms are very large and the beds were very comfortable . The stunning views from the decking were outstanding...overlooking to the Beach and the entire bay, with Tide watching over the Avon Estuary. The house is situated at the top of the hill and there are splendid walks down onto the beach and around to Bigbury Bay with a lovely stroll across to Burgh Island at low tide. We were also able to walk to the Jouneys End PH in Ringmer for lunch (Sunday lunch highly recommended). The circular walk takes you back to Bigbury beach. I can't recommend cobbles point it highly enough!

  • "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.

    Cornwall and Devon is worldwide well known for the fantastic landscape, but with this property in front of the little Burgh Island you beat the expectations. Daily tides twice are changing the view and access to this little island in front of Bigbury-on-Sea. All tha just one stone throw from your large enough accomodation (7 Person in our case). No doubt: we will offer it to our friends and colleagues. They know, that our tips are worthy. Thank you again and we hope to see your place soon again! Family Hans-Joerg and Monika Muehlberger

  • "Overall we were very happy with the cottage!"

    The views are absolutely stunning! Just one slight issue - as there was no bin outside the property we weren’t sure where to dispose of our rubbish! With 6 adults, 1 baby and 2 dogs we had a lot of rubbish!!!! *** OWNERS RESPONSE*** We're thrilled that you were happy with the cottage and the views which we are agree are pretty special. We pay for trade waste removal which unfortunately does not come on the changeover day. This means the bin is sometimes not taken up by guests or returned afterwards once it has been emptied.The folder has a lot of information in about the bin and we have since had more labels put on the bin so hope that will help. Thank you for your feedback.

  • "The house was as comfortable and spacious as last year, with its spectacular views."

    It is well equipped and very good for families. The only disappointment was that the garden has been totally neglected and the grass hasn't even been cut this year, by the look of it, so that the children couldn't really play outside. Also, there didn't appear to be a dustbin for the house; we had to share a green bin with Beacon.

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.
