    The location of the apartment is terrific, but if the cleanliness and standard of crockery were improved it could impress better

    Mr James CatonAug 2022

  • "We had a lovely week in the apartment, which was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for an enjoyable holiday."

    The views from the terrace are fantastic. We were provided with a lot of useful information beforehand. Will definitely stay again.

    Mrs Bethan JonesJun 2022

  • "The apartment was spacious well equipped and clean it would benefit from some updates and painting, that said nothing major, also an information folder we had to ask howto get to cafe swimming pool etc, the staff were helpful as were the owners and the welcome pack much appreciated."

    We would definitely go again and recommend.

    Mrs Susan PerryMay 2022

  • "A most enjoyable stay at Apartment 19 in all respects- clean, well equipped and very comfortable."

    Nice of you to lay on brilliant weather for early November. The pool is a real bonus- clean and just the right temperature. Burgh Island with The Pilchard Inn is fascinating and we really enjoyed our daily walk to the top of the island.

  • "On arrival found oven to be dirty, spent over an hour cleaning it,put racks and trays through dishwasher."

    I spoke with owner who contacted us and he apologised and and arranged a cream tea as recompense, but the edge had already been taken off our experience, coupled with the fact we had been told the hoover was due to be replaced next week! It made us wonder if the carpets/apartment had actually been cleaned properly before what should have been the first rental of the season.

    Mr Martin HowardApr 2021

  • "Another lovely stay at appt 19, this is the 3rd time that we have stayed here."

    The appt was spotless and equipped with everything that you could need. Spectacular views to the west & wonderful sunsets every night. We enjoyed afternoons on the balcony and were able to sit outside until it got dark. Many thanks to the owners & Abi for all their efforts to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

    Mrs Sarah MorrisApr 2021

  • "Very helpful owners who provided useful information in advance and were keen to ensure that everything was ok."

    Mrs Hilary GarrardOct 2020

  • "This is our third time staying at this apartment and it never disappoints."

    The perfect place to hunker down when weather is inclement. Great location for walking, beach activities and just chilling. Expectations were exceeded this time by the covid secure measures taken by the owners. We lock forward to returning again. taken by

    Mrs Yvonne FairlieOct 2020

  • "This is a great location with a fantastic view."

    It provided a safe environment for our kids and they loved the proximity to the beach. The owners were great and showed real interest in us having a good time. They made sure to check in and get our feedback and made us feel very much at home. I have not commented about the facilities as it is during Covid and therefore not many of the onsite facilities were open.

    Mr John-chris TrinderAug 2020

  • "“The apartment was well equipped & very comfortable home from home” Where to start!"

    We had a fantastic stay, the sea views were wonderful – we thoroughly watching the tide come in and out and watching the beach on busy days gave endless enjoyment! The apartment was spotless and had everything you need (and more!) We enjoyed a few meals from the onsite restaurant – just needed to order in advance. Every effort was been made to make our stay comfortable including a nice welcome pack on arrival, we even got a call from the owner during our stay to make sure everything was ok. Wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this apartment, 10 out of 10. Thank you for a fabulous holiday, we will be back.

    Mrs Pam WestAug 2020

  • "A very clean, comfortable and very well equipped apartment in a stunning location."

    Lots of thoughtful extras included which made such a difference. Would highly recommend this apartment and the service from Sykes

    Ms Rosemary MurrayMar 2020

  • "This apartment is in a beautiful location overlooking Burgh Island to the South and out to sea to the west."

    We easily made contact with the housekeeper regarding arrival time and secure parking and key access to the property was very simple and straight forward. No 19 parking space and access stairs are at the far end of the car park and the front door to the property is on a lower level than the car park, down the flight of stairs. The property is in a good position, whatever the weather, to watch the tide wash in across the causeway from both sides of Burgh island as the tide goes in and out. The property has a generous size balcony with table and chairs to sit out on the warmer days. We weren’t lucky with the weather being November but the apartment is very spacious, it’s warm, comfortable, clean and well equipped, so we didn’t feel the need to go out every day. Our planned food supply and the well stocked shop down the road, meant we only ate out one lunch time, plus a cream tea at Bigbury Golf Club!!!!! We can recommend the Journeys End pub at Ringmoor for a nice lunch which we had after a walk down to Ayrmer Cove. There’s a National Trust car park (Free to Members) at the start of the walk and a steep but firm footpath down to the Cove, well worth the walk. Another nice walk is on the coastal path to Challaborough, starts from the end of the car park, a few metres from No19 parking space. More good views on this walk. There’s a small gym, swimming pool and restaurant on site and a friendly social community. We asked about opening times and were kept up to date through the week of what the daily opening times were. We were offered eat-in or take away meals from the on-site restaurant if we ordered in advance. One day we walked over to Burgh Island, it started raining and whilst we were sheltering under the porch of the Pilchard the barman opened up early for us and another couple and invited us in for a coffee. By the time the rain stopped and we walked round the island the tide was in so we took the £2 water taxi back, only takes a few minutes but a bit of novelty fun. This is a lovely well maintained apartment on a good small complex. Oh, and we enjoyed the tea, milk, wine and cake in the welcome pack!!!! thanks.”

    Mr John LovelaceNov 2019

  • "Firstly and most import to me as a bit of a clean freak, the apartment wasn’t nearly as clean as we expected, the photos of it, I guess were taken a few years ago Secondly, as I have a bad hip, We were told there were 20 steps up to the apartment and 6 steps down to the beach - there were in fact 28 steps down to the apartment, via a very scruffy staircase and no steps to the beach!"

    We had to use the staircase to get in and out. The restaurant on site closed early the day we arrived so we had nothing to eat. The pub across the causeway didn’t look very clean or inviting. In the details it said there was a shop within a mile which was a beach shop selling buckets and spades - no food. The other store which did sell food was a walk over the coast path to the next bay, good job it was mostly good weather. The village was stunning once you’d navigated the 5 1/2 mile single track road to reach it - but probably better to visit not to stay.

    Mrs Kay MerrickSep 2019

  • "A wonderful stay."

    The apartment was very well equipped and as listed. The booking process was very straight forward.

    Dr Lizzy HallAug 2019

  • "Glorious views, even in the rain."

    We have booked again for September.

    Mrs Vivien McdonaldJun 2019

  • "We had high expectations since the holiday details clearly showed top quality accommodation and accurately described the facilities."

    These expectations were fully met and we were delighted with the whole experience.

    Mr Robert VollerMay 2019

  • "We had the most amazing holiday in a beautiful apartment, with stunning views."

    Couldn’t of asked for a better location. Thanks to Sykes for your accuracy in describing the property. All ran smoothly with contact numbers and keys etc, extremely clean bedding and facilities. The owner and the cleaner were so helpful in checking our holiday was what it should be. They even leave a lovely welcome pack of local cake and wine. It’s the little touches that make the difference. We will definitely be using your site again and have started to look to re book already. Thank you.

    Mrs Annette BlazeMay 2019

  • "An absolutely fantastic apartment in a wonderful setting."

    We could not have wished for anything better. As a tip, a walk to Ringmore and the Journey's End pub is highly recommended. The apartment was really clean and well equipped and the owners very helpful (via email). Highly recommended!

    Dr Marc StephensDec 2018

  • "Superb location."

    All expectations met. When we locked ourselves out a call to customer care had matters resolved within half an hour. Excellent holiday. Will use helpful holidays again. Thank you.

    Mrs Yvonne FairlieOct 2018

  • "Lovely comfortable apartment with fantastic views and spotlessly clean."

    The facilities were good, pool and gym we had to ourselves. The Club provides excellent food with very friendly staff, we ate there several times, thoroughly recommend it.

    Mrs Hazel ButterfieldSep 2018

  • "Very expensive and not thoroughly cleaned for price you charge, ended up de cobwebing very old spiders web that you can see they have been there for a while, plus tired looking inside apartment, been on other holidays with sea view hot tub for slightly cheaper to what you charge."

    Mr Ian ThompsonAug 2018

  • "The apartment was great, perfectly situated and with wonderful views."

    It was well equipped and suited us as a family of 4 very well. The cafe / restaurant in house was fabulous with wonderful food and friendly service. I would wholeheartedly recommend!

    Mr Jonathan GoddenJul 2018

  • "Truly wonderful setting and lovely apartment made for a fabulous holiday."

    Personal contact from the owner to ensure all was OK and offer some local guidance and advice was extremely thoughtful. Would certainly book again.

    Anthony SullivanMay 2018

  • "Beautiful apartment with a good view on Burgh Island."

    Apartment was well equipped and suitable for a family of 4. In the building is also a swimming pool and gym (signs to these could be better) In the neighborhood there are more than enough things to do, like walking, surfing, small villages, nice pubs and the city centre of Plymouth is only 30 min drive. Highly recommend this apartment!

    Mr Stefan StrangerMay 2018

  • "Beautiful and very peaceful location for a restful break."

    The apartment was very comfortable and well kitted out. Everything was good quality and was ideal for relaxing.

    Mr Caryn MaineNov 2017

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this very special apartment and location and didn\'t need to venture far as we made the most of local walks and facilities in order not to leave the stunning views."

    Having such comfortable accommodation and outstanding views we did not feel disappointed by the rainy days, although we were also glad to have the sunny days too. We hope very much to return. Thanks to the HH team for their help with this last-minute booking.

    Mr Michael WeaverMay 2017

    We had a wonderful two weeks not moving too far away from Bigbury and using the facilities of the complex. We would definately consider returning again.

    Mr Kerry ScrivensJun 2012

  • "The tide washing the beach and waking to pristine sand without a single footprint."

    the magical view of Burgh Island with the lights of the hotel illuminating the darkness after the spectacular sunsets. Beach cricket, sandcastles and moats with the tide coming in at the right moment. we had a fantastic time and our ages ranged from seventy two to four years old!

Burgh Island View Apartments

Just 20 yards from Bigbury-on-Sea's big and splendid sandy beach, looking to Burgh Island Causeway, are 29 stunning, high quality apartments, of which we let a number. Within the same building are excellent leisure facilities and a restaurant. The views over the sea to the south and west, and at low tide of a vast expanse of smooth washed yellow sand reaching to Burgh Island, are outstanding. The island's jolly pub, The Pilchard, is fun to visit (long-legged sea tractor at high tide). All the apartments, which are privately owned and individually furnished, have those sensational views, and are wonderfully light, with large, airy open-plan living/dining/kitchens and glazed doors to balconies or terraces. The smallish bedrooms, at the back (without views), have good quality en suite bath or shower-rooms. The apartment building is three-storey. Most apartments have easy access (short walk from parking and between 5 and 9 steps down to the lift). The ground floor (still high above the beach) apartments have big terraces, the first and top floor apartments have very good-sized balconies. The leisure facilities, which are free for guests to use and open from 10am every day (except Christmas Day), include a fine indoor swimming pool (40' x 20' x 4'6"), spa pool, well-equipped gym (treadmill, steps, cycles, Concept II Rower and other instruments of torture) and sauna (no children under 14 in gym or sauna). There are changing rooms, a shower and disabled loo. The Club restaurant/smart bar, is open 10am to 9pm during the High Season, reservations recommended (for all other times of the year, please contact the Leisure Centre for opening times), serves excellent food throughout the day, with a popular dinner menu which varies daily and themed evenings.

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.
