    “The apartment was exactly as described and we couldn't have asked for a better place, overlooking the beach.”

    We've stayed in the block before and it is truly a unique spot. You can't beat the views onto Burgh Island and the kids loved waking up in the morning and seeing the ever-changing view - was the tide in or out, what the weather was like and whether the sea tractor was operational.

    We've stayed in the block before and it is truly a unique spot. You can't beat the views onto Burgh Island and the kids loved waking up in the morning and seeing the ever-changing view - was the tide in or out, what the weather was like and whether the sea tractor was operational. The ground floor apartment itself was very comfortable, and exceptionally clean and had absolutely everything one could possibly need. Bathrooms were very modern and everything had been thought of down to having a more cosy light over the basin so you didn't have to put on the main bright light. Heated towel rails were a bonus. We had lovely weather for most of the week and enjoyed time on the beach and in the lovely indoor pool and then our last 2 days were spent visiting Greenway (Agatha Christie's holiday home) which we accessed via a small "ferry" from Dittesham and then Totnes on our way home on the last day, but there is plenty to do in the area so you can be as active or as relaxed as you like. The owners left an amazing chocolate cake and a bottle of wine for our arrival which we enjoyed - thank you!

    Thank you so much for your wonderful comments about our apartment. We’re pleased that you and your family enjoyed your week there. Bigbury on Sea is certainly a very special and unique place. Lyn & John Property Owner

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).

No children under 14 allowed in the gym.

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.

The comfy lounging area has sofas and WiFi, and the sunny outdoor terrace faces the sea.

No 2.

Ground floor: glazed doors to large, partly covered terrace (sunloungers, table/chairs) and superb views to the south and west.

Inside, relaxing and comfortable.

Light, open living/dining/kitchen (slimline dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker, granite worktops, island) with dining table/chairs, two sofas, TV/Sky/DVD, iPod dock.

Two bedrooms - double (5' bed,) with en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath), and twin with en suite power-shower-room (suite, also accessible from hall).

Conveniently close to access to the beach. Bigbury-on-Sea: village (seasonal café) with south Devon’s biggest sandy beaches (The Venus Café, Takeaway and Surf School, seasonal beach shop), stretching to Burgh Island (The Pilchard pub; famous art deco hotel - you can walk to it at low tide, go by long-legged tractor at high; setting of Agatha Christie novels).

Good windsurfing; fine cliffs for walking and sea-bird watching.

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: The Club is open from 10 am daily and offers a selection of hot and cold food and a wide selection of beverages. Booking is advisable for the restaurant during high season and weekends.
The Leisure Club includes the indoor swimming pool and gym and is also open daily from 10 am, booking is not required. The sauna is not currently operational. Please check The Club's closing time as this may vary depending on the time of year.

Note: For the foreseeable future the Leisure Club, cafe, bar and swimming pool will be closed on a Monday due to medical reasons
