    • “Fabulous Place to Stay”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This was a great place to spend some family time really close to the sea. The ever changing seascapes are fantastic. Getting to Bigbury on Sea is a challenge itself with the only access road being narrow and single track in places. From the apartment block, it is an easy stroll across to Burgh Island to the Pilchard Inn at low tide (great fish and chips). In fact, the tide only covers the cause way for around 2 hours either side of high tide, so no real need to take the tractor. The beach is really clean and the sea had enough surf for the teenagers to body board while being calm enough to have a go at stand up paddle boarding. The apartment complex has a small but useable gym and swimming pool and a small bar/restaurant. Food in the restaurant was ok with the highlight being the ice creams. The apartment itself was well appointed, very clean and comfortable. Only downsides were hot water which was preprogrammed to be on overnight and not sufficient to be able to give 2 adults and 2 teenagers a morning hot shower and no signal on either EE or Vodafone networks (although that might be a good thing). Wifi kept the teenagers happy on Netflix binges at night as there is nothing else for them to do after dark. Great place and location. Just sort the hot water and we could be back.”

    • “22 Burgh Island, Causeway is a lovely apartment. Our family of 4 had a wonderful week. The apartment is spacious and clean and has all you need. The view of Burgh Island from the balcony is lovely. There is much to do in the area and we would recommend this apartment and Skyes.”

    Mr Hodgkins, Wargrave, October 2018

    • “What a wonderful place. Lovely, very well equipped apartment, fabulous location with incredible views. We didn't want to leave!”

    Mrs Caine, Thatcham, September 2018

    • “the apartment was very good with the exception of the balcony furniture . The table and chairs need replacing with something more modern and comfortable , and there is no parasole for the table as it was blown away previously and the owners have not replaced it. we had to go out to buy one as it was very sunny and we could not sit on the balcony without one.”

    Mr Tracey, Brackley, September 2018

    • “Fantastic property let down by super stingy hot water setting (or lack thereof)”

    Mr Wood, Reading, July 2018

    • “This holiday was just as we hoped. Relaxing.....beautiful views....really comfortable apartment. Easy location to explore further which we did as well as spending some days just near the apartment on the the cafe .......swimming in the pool...using the gym. So enjoyable we have booked to return same time next year! Many thanks.”

    Mr Wallington, BOURNE END, May 2018

    • “We booked this holiday not long before we went. A lady at helpful holidays was very helpful with advice on the apartments I'd shortlisted and we were very happy with the one we went for. Ideal for our family. We had a great week - the view was amazing and the boys loved the pool and we enjoyed the cafe. The apartment was smart and clean. Our only comment would be the previous family must have left in abut of a rush as some of the kitchen stuff had been hastily washed and there was washing left in the machine. However it was all easily rectified. We were really looking forward to this break and it certainly met our expectations and more. We're already thinking of booking again. Many thanks. Debbie”

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, which is open 10am to 9pm during the High Season, reservations recommended (for all other times of the year, please contact the Leisure Centre), 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 22. Top floor: stunning sea views; stylish and fresh with excellent original seascape paintings (Scillonian artist).

Regional Information

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: Leisure facilities open from 10am every day (except christmas day). Note: This property does not accept children under 14 in gym or sauna.
