  • “Sykes failed to tell the housekeeper that we wanted two bedrooms set up as doubles rather than twins.”

    This has happened to us before, in 2017 when we went to the Piggery in Bradworthy. Fortunately this time, I mentioned it myself to the housekeeper. But you need to review your communication systems - the person I spoke to at Sykes assured me she had written it down. There is a note in the kitchen stating that if the property isn't left suitably clean and tidy, holiday-makers may be liable for a charge for extra cleaning. I thought this was unfriendly and unnecessary. ...

There is a note in the kitchen stating that if the property isn't left suitably clean and tidy, holiday-makers may be liable for a charge for extra cleaning. I thought this was unfriendly and unnecessary. The bungalow is delightful, really well positioned with lovely views of the sea. It was beautifully clean and very well equipped. The only problem was that 3 out of 4 torches didn't work, and the door handles are all the same, knobs to twist, which are really difficult for arthritic hands. Someone had mentioned in the guest book at Drifters that their children had had the same problem. Not sure what the answer is; perhaps they could be loosened in some way.

About the location

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.

Note: Arrival after 4pm, departure by 11am. This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £250
