  • Mr Poxton

    “I’m not sure if you have changed cleaners since our last visit but the cleanliness has dropped significantly.”

    ...

    The outside terrace is very dirty, it’s not been swept in months and desperately needs painting. The glass balustrade was so dirty you could barely see through it. I understand it’s a costal terrace and will get dirty quickly but all the other terraces along the row were much cleaner. Toilet seats are rickety and stained underneath. The new oven / cooker is great but the general condition of the kitchen is poor. Drawers don’t close properly / a cupboard door is hanging off. If anything there’s a little too many items, when you open the pan cupboard everything literally falls out and you can barely find anything. Bathrooms were not clean on arrival, we had to wipe over all services which were dusty. Towels provided are of poor quality, bath towels were too small so we had to use the beach towels instead. Not ideal. It’s such a shame really as our previous stay was wonderful, but these small details really have impacted our break away. We all feel the apartment just needs a little TLC, a lick of paint and some love to bring it back to its former glory. On a positive note the welcome pack was very much appreciated and the beds were really comfy with nice clean bedding.

The property

Just 20 yards from Bigbury-on-Sea's big and splendid sandy beach, looking to Burgh Island Causeway, are 29 stunning, high quality apartments, of which we let 13.

Within the same building are excellent leisure facilities and a restaurant.

The views over the sea to the south and west, and at low tide of a vast expanse of smooth washed yellow sand reaching to Burgh Island, are outstanding.

The island's jolly pub, The Pilchard, is fun to visit (long-legged sea tractor at high tide). All the apartments, which are privately owned and individually furnished, have those sensational views, and are wonderfully light, with large, airy open-plan living/dining/kitchens and glazed doors to balconies or terraces.

The smallish bedrooms, at the back (without views), have good quality en suite bath or shower-rooms.

The building is three-storey.

Most apartments have easy access (short walk from parking and between 5 and 9 steps down to the lift).

The ground floor (still high above the beach) apartments have big terraces, the first and top floor apartments have very good-sized balconies.

Arrival after 4pm.

The leisure facilities, which are free for guests to use and open from 10am every day (except Christmas Day), include a fine indoor swimming pool (40' x 20' x 4'6"), spa pool, well-equipped gym (treadmill, steps, cycles, Concept II Rower and other instruments of torture) and sauna (no children under 14 in gym or sauna).

There are changing rooms, a shower and disabled loo.

The Club restaurant/smart bar, is open 10am to 9pm during the High Season, reservations recommended (for all other times of the year, please contact the Leisure Centre for opening times) serves excellent food throughout the day, with a popular dinner menu which varies daily and themed evenings.

You can also order meals to take to your apartment.

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: Burgh Island Apartments have advised sauna, gym and changing rooms are still closed until further notice. This will be consistently reviewed and updated should the situation change.
Swimming pool is open. Guests need to book time slots at the reception (they are 30 min time slots for now). Guests have to arrive at the pool already with their swimsuits on and towels because there is nowhere to change due to the changing room still being closed
Operating within Government guidelines, the bar and restaurant are open with limited seating inside + seating outside. There is the possibility to arrange food delivery from the restaurant to the apartments and guests can obtain all the information at the reception. These, however may be subject to change.
