    “Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Highdown - the location is great , Bigbury on sea ,Burgh island & Challaborough are only a short walk away.”

    ...

    We took our small dog ( Westie ) the gardens are beautiful & well maintained and almost enclosed ( she could get through the gaps in the gate across the drive ) . The bungalow is very homely , we particularly loved sitting in the front sun porch watching the world ( well sea! ) go by , fantastic views over the Devon coastline . We did feel that the bungalow would be too small for anymore than 2 or 3 Adults or a family with small children . Although we needed for nothing -everything had been considered & was incredibly clean , we do feel that the property needed an overall update & some money spending throughout to make your time spent at Highdown more comfortable . We were happy with the price we paid but we do think £2000+ in the high season is unreasonable for this property. In summary , a lovely little spot & we will definitely look to book again :)

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.
