    • “Perfect holiday home”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The location is perfect with stunning views and coastal walks. The house is well equipped with everything you could need including comfortable beds. We had such a lovely holiday there.”

    PatW0917, London, United Kingdom, April 2018

    • “We had a wonderful family week at cobbles point. The accommodation was spacious and well furnished and very homely. All of the bedrooms are very large and the beds were very comfortable . The stunning views from the decking were outstanding...overlooking to the Beach and the entire bay, with Tide watching over the Avon Estuary. The house is situated at the top of the hill and there are splendid walks down onto the beach and around to Bigbury Bay with a lovely stroll across to Burgh Island at low tide. We were also able to walk to the Jouneys End PH in Ringmer for lunch (Sunday lunch highly recommended). The circular walk takes you back to Bigbury beach. I can't recommend cobbles point it highly enough!”

    Ms Thornton, Slough, September 2018

    • “The location of Cobbles Point was great, and the views were outstanding. We loved the decked outside area, but it would have been improved by loungers. However, we were disappointed with the cleanliness of the cottage and felt it was in need of a decorative update, both inside and out, including furniture. We didn’t expect to have to recycle bottles ourselves. We also found the outside bins inadequate for 8 people. ***OWNER RESPONSE*** We are delighted you enjoyed the situation of the property but sorry to hear that the rest did not meet your expectations. Our cleaner's work hard to maintain a high standard and in terms of decoration, we disagree with these comments. Before this year's letting season we had two new bathrooms installed, a new floor in the kitchen, new doors and windows and new carpets. Parts of the house were painted and some new furniture was purchased alongside new artwork to update the property. The pictures show the property clearly on the HH site and the property is as described – a converted barn, not a 5* luxurious apartment which may have been what you were looking for. We have not had issues before with people finding the bins inadequate for the group size. Unfortunately trade waste does not provide recycling and we are greatly appreciative of guests who take their recycling to the beach car park 650 metres down the hill.”

    Mrs Wickett, Ashford, August 2018

    • “Dear Team, dear owner of this fantastic house, high above the wonderfull seaside of Devon. Cornwall and Devon is worldwide well known for the fantastic landscape, but with this property in front of the little Burgh Island you beat the expectations. Daily tides twice are changing the view and access to this little island in front of Bigbury-on-Sea. All tha just one stone throw from your large enough accomodation (7 Person in our case). No doubt: we will offer it to our friends and colleagues. They know, that our tips are worthy. Thank you again and we hope to see your place soon again! Family Hans-Joerg and Monika Muehlberger”

    Mrs Muehlberger, July 2018

    • “Overall we were very happy with the cottage! The views are absolutely stunning! Just one slight issue - as there was no bin outside the property we weren’t sure where to dispose of our rubbish! With 6 adults, 1 baby and 2 dogs we had a lot of rubbish!!!! *** OWNERS RESPONSE*** We're thrilled that you were happy with the cottage and the views which we are agree are pretty special. We pay for trade waste removal which unfortunately does not come on the changeover day. This means the bin is sometimes not taken up by guests or returned afterwards once it has been emptied.The folder has a lot of information in about the bin and we have since had more labels put on the bin so hope that will help. Thank you for your feedback.”

    Mrs Hilsdon, Swindon, June 2018

    • “This year was the 6th time that we have been to Cobbles Point and as usual it did not disappoint! The cottage is ideal for our family holiday, including our dogs and the outdoor space with its spectacular views keeps us coming back year after year. We will definitely be rebooking for next year.”

    Mrs O' Neill, BIRMINGHAM, June 2018

    • “The house was as comfortable and spacious as last year, with its spectacular views. It is well equipped and very good for families. The only disappointment was that the garden has been totally neglected and the grass hasn't even been cut this year, by the look of it, so that the children couldn't really play outside. Also, there didn't appear to be a dustbin for the house; we had to share a green bin with Beacon.”

    Mr Dimsdale, HARROGATE, May 2018

    • “The view is great and we would definitely like to revisit again in the future”

    Mrs Thatcher, Northampton, May 2018

    • “Have just spent a lovely week here with three generations of family who all had a great time. Views over the river/sea are even more stunning than the photos. Will happily return!”

    Mrs Bray, MILTON KEYNES, April 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.
