    “It is what it says - it is a very charming period cottage.”

    The downsides being a very sharp set of circular stairs to the bedrooms and no bannister to hold on to. It can be dicey, especially at night. The flow of hot water in the kitchen is very poor. Kettles should be used. The hot water on a separate water heater is excellent. The bedrooms were quaint to say the least. ...

    The downsides being a very sharp set of circular stairs to the bedrooms and no bannister to hold on to. It can be dicey, especially at night. The flow of hot water in the kitchen is very poor. Kettles should be used. The hot water on a separate water heater is excellent. The bedrooms were quaint to say the least. On the upside the property was well maintained for its age and type, with a virtually brand new thatch. it was also beautifully clean, with the most beautiful garden, eat outdoors from breakfast until dinner at night (if warm enough), its a real treat.

The property

Cleave Cottage features a stunning thatched roof and sits near to the lovely seaside village of Bigbury-on-Sea in South Devon.

With a wealth of countryside and coastal opportunities resting close by, this Grade II listed holiday home is a wonderfully welcoming base for families of four looking to get away.

Be welcomed into the property by its quirky and warming living room, touched charmingly with exposed wooden beams and rustic flagstone flooring, while a rustic wooden dining table and an electric-effect woodburner combine to make this welcoming spot to kick back and relax.

Next to this, discover a compact yet usefully appointed kitchen for rustling up those hearty meals, this leads through to a charming family bathroom with a shower over the bath.

At the end of each adventure-filled day, climb the traditionally steep stairs to find the two bedrooms on the first floor, the splendid double bedroom boasts an access door through to the twin room - perfect accommodation for families to enjoy.

Pass the Bigbury Golf Course on the way to the delightful seaside village of Bigbury-on-Sea, home to a superb beach offering opportunities for water sports.

The South West Coast Path runs past here, displaying marvellous scenery and playing host to a number of popular tourist spots including Salcombe, Dartmouth and Plymouth, all of which provide visitors with an excellent range of things to see and do.

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.
