  • “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. ...

    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.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback and we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed visiting this beautiful area. We must admit that we were surprised at some of the issues raised since we have never before received criticism of either the apartment or the location. Our cleaner has been with us for some time and has only received glowing reports previously (see reviews). Also, the photographs of the property are recent (taken last April). The property is listed on the website as "raised ground floor (no lift access, steps down from car park)", so there are some steps involved to access the apartment. It is also detailed that the leisure centre is open in high season between 10am to 9pm but for all other times of the year customers should contact the Leisure Centre for opening times (It closes at 8pm on Fridays, Saturdays and 6pm on other days; takeaways can be ordered). We also advised you ahead of your stay that you should book for dinner. The closest shop is described as 3 miles away. I am sorry to hear that you had trouble reaching food shops but we did advise you in our information email sent a few days before your arrival that we recommend shopping at St Annes Chapel, the shop just 3 miles away on the main road. A majority of customers do bring a stock of food along with them as it is a self-catering apartment, in case they decide to dine at the property. Owner relations

The property

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 13.

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 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.

Arrival after 4pm, please note there is no mobile signal in the apartment. 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.

You can also order meals to take to your apartment.

The comfy lounging area has sofas and WiFi, and the sunny outdoor terrace faces the sea.

No 19.

Raised ground floor (no lift access, steps down from car park): quietly and privately set at the far end from the leisure club; superb south and west views (great for sunsets); big terrace (sun loungers, table/chairs).

Living/dining/kitchen with light oak floor and furniture, cream leather suite, TV with Freesat, DVD (selection of DVDs), glazed doors to terrace, and kitchen area with quartz worktops (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker).

Two bedrooms - double (5' bed) with en suite bathroom (suite plus bath-shower, window), and twin with en suite shower-room (suite, additional door to corridor). Bigbury-on-Sea: village (seasonal café) with south Devon's biggest sandy beaches (The Venus Café, Takeaway and Surf School, seasonal beach shop), stretching to Burgh Island (The Pilchard pub; famous art deco hotel - you can walk to it at low tide, go by long-legged tractor at high; setting of Agatha Christie novels).

Good windsurfing; fine cliffs for walking and sea-bird watching.

Golf, 1 mile.

Nearest shop, 3 miles.

Kingsbridge, 10 miles; Salcombe, 15.

About the location

BIGBURY-ON-SEA

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: Leisure facilities open from 10am every day (except christmas day). Note: This property does not accept children under 14 in gym or sauna.
