    “Cobbles point was a last minute holiday booking to an area of South Devon we know extremely well.”

    Bigbury on Sea is a beautiful part of the country and Cobbles Point is an excellent property to holiday in whilst exploring this area of the country. The property itself was well presented, well stocked and clean. The layout of the property with three bedrooms at one end with the lounge and kitchen between the other bedroom is particularly useful if you have multiple households. Although it was late October when we stayed, when it wasn't raining and the sun was out, the outside decking was an enjoyable feature with 180 degree views through the glass fencing was marvelous. The beds were comfortable with decent bedding, the carpeted floors, tiled and wooden floors were clean. All the showers and toilets etc worked and appeared to be fairly new and clean. The kitchen had most appliances and more than you would expect to get in most holiday homes, plenty of cutlery and utensils but possibly could do with more plates/bowls. The only negatives we experienced with the property was that there was no firewood on arrival so we had to search the local shops to get some (knowing beforehand that there was none on arrival we would have brought some for a single fire from home) and that the fourth bedroom in silo was cooler (occasionally cold) compared to the rest of the property. The rest of the property was extremely comfortable and warm. Three parking spaces is more than enough for this sized property and excellently placed for walks into Bigbury on sea and Burgh Island either over the fields on the public paths (short and longer routes), down the coastal path and along the beach when the tide is out (over the rocks when safe to do so if the tide is just going out) or a 2 minute drive to the main car park. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cobbles Point and are looking at the limited availability for 2021 to see if we can stay again.

The property

In Bigbury-on-Sea, 700 yards up from the magnificent beach and with sensational panoramic views, a large attached cottage, one of six converted from huge stone barns.

Its end-of-row, seaward-facing position and split-level foundations make it very private with views from most rooms; from two raised decks (table/chairs) at the front, views are uninterrupted for almost 180 degrees from the Avon estuary, over Bantham and out to sea.

Below the decks (steps down), at the front and side, a good-sized, lawned and gravelled, enclosed garden, with another little enclosed, lawned area sheltered by a high hedge at the back.Inside, exceptionally roomy with high apex ceilings and beams, made homely and comfortable with cottage-style furnishings and fabrics.

Stable doors to ground-floor oak-fitted kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric oven,) with tiled floor; utility area (washer-drier) with loo and 8 steep steps down to double bedroom (5' bed) with en suite shower cubicle, sea views and doors to garden.

From the kitchen, 5 steps up to lofty living room (woodburner, TV/DVD) with oak floor (rug) and French windows to deck; also at this level, three more bedrooms - a double (TV/DVD, great sea views) with step up to en suite shower-room (wet-room suite) and doors to garden, a twin (zip-linkable to 6' double) with doors to garden, and one with two singles.

Bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

A relaxing, family-friendly home with hard-to-beat views; minutes from the Coast Path and a choice of superb beaches. 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


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.
