    • “Although the owners were away out of the country at the time, they left a mobile number and responded very quickly to a minor query. Very helpful and the thoughtful treats left for us were welcome!”

    Mr Houghton, Towcester, November 2018

    • “Bigbury on Sea is a very special place and the apartment was wonderful with breathtaking views. The owners of the apartment left many gorgeous gifts to enjoy and fresh flowers everywhere. I had absolutely everything I needed and loved every moment of my 2 week stay and truly didn't want to leave. So thankful the apartment is dog friendly otherwise I wouldn't have been able to go. Thank you Sykes Cottages”

    Mrs Hutchings, CALLINGTON, November 2018

    • “It still feels like “coming home” when we walk through the door! The sea view just blows us away and the peace and quiet means so much to us as we lead such busy lives. The extra touches of beautiful flowers, wine, cake, cream tea etc just add to the whole holiday experience. The owners are amazing to provide all this and we are forever grateful we can take our dog with us. On his last legs now bless him but still enjoys the beach even if he does just amble along now instead of running in and out of the waves. Whilst there we booked for next spring. Can’t wait!”

    Mrs Btrown, SEVENOAKS, September 2018

    • “Wonderful location and apartment is 5 star, facilities are excellent”

    Mrs Salisbury, Mold, July 2018

    • “We had a lovely holiday in an excellent apartment, the owners are very thoughtful and we can thoroughly recommend a stay here.”

    Mr Marsh, YEOVIL, June 2018

    • “The apartment was well kept and maintained the flowers in all the rooms was a lovely touch as was the excellent carrot cake and the bottle of wine. Would highly recommend.”

    Mrs Jackson, ARNSIDE, June 2018

    • “Lovely apartment with great views. Ideally situated for walks on the coast paths . Will definitely return”

    Mr Millier, Bognor Regis, May 2018

    • “A fantastic apartment, clean, modern and extremely well appointed with many thoughtful extras such as beautiful fresh flowers in all rooms and wine, chocolates, biscuits and cake on arrival. The view from the apartment is second to none, there are lovely walks from the door and if you ever feel like venturing away there is so much to do in the area. What more could you want ?!”

    Mrs Hill, LEICESTER, March 2018

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.

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.
