“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.”
