Tamarisk is a detached single storey house 200 yards above the big sandy beach in Bigbury-on-Sea.
Smart and with stunning views across the sea to Burgh Island, it is relaxing accommodation for a wonderful seaside holiday.
From the hall, head through into the light kitchen where you can throw open large glass doors to the terrace for the option of dining inside or out.
The sitting room is a cosy place to sit during the evenings, with its cosy wood burning stove, or for daytime views and sunshine go on through to the sunroom where you have those fabulous vistas over Bigbury Bay.
The three bedrooms are all conveniently en suite.
Those amazing views can be enjoyed from inside or out of doors, with a big terrace facing the sea where you can light the barbecue, as well as lawns and a useful shed for storing your surfboards and beach stuff.
Head down to the glorious beach for bodyboarding or maybe to book lessons at the popular surf school, or to build sandcastles and run free.
It’s fun to walk across the sand to Burgh Island with its view from the old huers’ hut and then catch the sea tractor back when the tide comes in.
For longer walks, follow the Coast Path in either direction and the views from both will be amazing.
For golfers, Bigbury’s clifftop course is challenging and unique.
Retail seekers will love Salcombe and Kingsbridge towns, both interesting places with independent shops.
Tamarisk is truly a perfect seaside spot which the whole family will love.

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.
Note: Limited space around one double bed
