    • “Good communication right from the start of the booking process, with friendly and helpful staff. The property description was excellent, and if anything was quite reserved as the property was even better than described and is a credit to its owners and those who maintain it on their behalf.”

    Mr Mason, NORTHAMPTON, July 2018

    • “It was a wonderful flat with a lovely view, it was just a shame about the nesting seagulls and their chicks just feet above our door to the patio.”

    Mr Smith, Eastleigh, July 2018

    • “This was our second stay at 3 Tarifa, Bigbury, and as always with Helpful Holidays, never have we been disappointed! The apartment and its situation, overlooking the sea was all we could wish for. Everything you could ever need is there. Just so lovely. The cream tea makings there on arrival were much appreciated too! Cannot wait to come back again! Many thanks”

    Mr Kelleway, Fareham, June 2018

    • “The accommodation was lovely and it's a beautiful area but we were unable to use the balcony because seagulls were nesting with their young very close on the low roof of the property. The patio and the furniture was very messy and the adult birds were too close for comfort.”

    Mrs Nash, Bicester, June 2018

    • “The apartment was spotlessly clean and was the best equipped holiday home we have stayed in. It was really outstanding. The views from the living room, twin bedroom and balcony were fabulous, ever changing sea, sand and surfers. The only down side were the seagulls that were busy nest building and depositing ‘mess’ on the balcony, we had to be careful to watch where we put our feet! It is obviously difficult at the seaside and some of the locals had set up various deterants with varying success. An outside broom and hose would have been useful! However having said all that, I am still recommending this apartment to friends. We had a lovely holiday, thank you!”

    Mrs Dalley, WORCESTER, May 2018

    • “Great location, very well equipped. Good info/instructions.”

    Mrs Gamble, Fareham, March 2018

Regional Information

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.
