    “The house catered for our needs and to sit outside on the veranda overlooking the estuary was breathtaking.”

    Nice touch with dog bowl and biscuits. ...

    Nice touch with dog bowl and biscuits. Negatives: Not friendly for disabled-different levels to property with steep steps. Owner of the farm has on the lower terrace (about 50 yards away) by the side of the balcony has a marquee built on a Friday for wedding parties on a Saturday. Music from this party BLASTING from late afternoon until 11.30 pm. Not all rooms are not on suite. Also the toilet to our room was up a flight of steep steps. Bedding could do with new pillows-flat as pancakes. New towels would be a plus. Shower basin in the room we used the caulking could do with been renewed as parts was black with mould. When paying 4 figures for a weeks rental it needs to be top notch.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback following your recent stay at Cobbles Point. We've spoken with the owner who has asked us to cover the points mentioned in order to help yourselves and reassure future guests.  We're delighted that you enjoyed the views and agree they are incredible. We are sorry that you found some things challenging such as disabled access. We do not however advertise it as being suitable for disabled people and the layout and description of the property is clearly highlighted in the particulars. This is the same for the separate WC for the lower bedroom there is only one en-suite room as advertised. Unfortunately the neighbouring farm and their wedding parties are out of our control, however we have asked that they let guests know in advance if there are any planned weddings. We are pleased to hear that despite the points raised you enjoyed your stay at Cobbles Point. Owner relations

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.

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.

Note: Sorry, no short breaks
