    “Everything about the apartment was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.”

    The only negative were the driving directions. It would be more accurate to say pass the main beach carpark on your left, the road inclines upwards, you pass a red phone box on the left, and turn immediately left past the bus stop, the entry gate will be straight ahead. the Burgh Causeway signage mentioned was not easy to spot, and is a large stone boulder on the corner as you turn left.

The property

Above the wide sandy beach at Bigbury on Sea and looking toward Burgh Island, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is this lovely two-bedroom apartment.

Perfect for couples, friends or a family of four, this accommodation is comfortable and welcoming.

From the open-plan living room, enjoy the views of the tide coming and going across golden sand and across to the island.

The brand new kitchen boasts smart units and granite surfaces, combined with modern cooking appliances.

There is a lovely sitting and dining area leading outside to a balcony, where you can relax and take in the stunning scenery with the coastal air on your face and a refreshing drink in hand.

The twin room offers a smart en-suite with a large walk-in shower cubicle.

Next, the master bedroom has a king-size bed and an en-suite bathroom designed in a contemporary fashion.

The onsite facilities are superb, including an indoor heated pool with spa, sauna and gym, as well as a restaurant serving good food.

The sandy beach, bordered by shallow waters, allows children to play safely, with rock pools and plenty of sea life entertainment.

Try a plethora of water sports from windsurfing and bodyboarding, to kayaking.

Or for the less adventurous visit Bigbury's most famous landmark crossing the causeway at low tide to Burgh Island, or if the tide is in, hitch a ride on the 'sea tractor'.

Explore the South Devon coastline at your own leisure, not forgetting to spend some time in the pretty towns and villages of Salcombe, Kingsbridge and Dartmouth.

This is a very special area and an ideal base for your next holiday by the sea.

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.
