    “A beautiful stay at 4 Burgh Island.”

    Thank you! Comfy bed, great kitchen facilities/appliances. Power shower. Perfect holiday spot! A black out blind in bedroom would be a great addition.

The property

4 Burgh Island Causeway is a ground-floor apartment positioned above the beach at Bigbury-on-Sea in Devon, featuring stunning views towards Burgh Island from within the apartment and from its large private beachside terrace. The terrace allows sunbathing and dining beachside in your own private space: alternatively you can use the indoor heated pool within the Leisure Club which has lovely views across the beach.

This inviting apartment offers an ideal bolthole for a family looking for a tranquil getaway to the Devon seaside.

Park in the allocated space and be welcomed into this beautifully furnished apartment boasting an incredible open-plan living space where care has been taken to add an air of opulence through the tasteful soft furnishings and quality amenities.

You can cook up a storm in the contemporary kitchen, making the most of the delightful island space, and enjoy your meal at the dining table with the backdrop of fantastic seaside views.

The sitting area provides a charming space to relax and reflect on your day and there is also a characterful window seat allowing guests to admire the view with a coffee in hand.

Throw open the patio doors and head out onto the large terrace, the ideal spot for alfresco dining. Watch as the tide ebbs and flows directly in front of the apartment.

Once the night has drawn in, freshen up in a stylish bathroom, before snuggling up in one of the two bedrooms, choosing between a well-presented king-size room or a delightful twin with en-suite shower room.

The property has access to a range of on-site facilities, including a bar, restaurant, sauna, gym and is only paces away from a fantastic sandy beach.

Bigbury-on-Sea itself offers a local pub and access to pretty coves and walks along the coastline.

From here, visit Kingsbridge where there is a local museum, explore the wildlife and scenery of the South Devon Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty, visit National Trust - Bolberry Down, or head over to the seaside town of Salcombe where there are many more eateries, pubs, sandy beaches and watersports facilities for guests to enjoy.

Make an unforgettable trip to the coast of Devon with a stay at the lovely 4 Burgh Island Causeway.

Burgh Island View Apartments

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

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Bigbury-on-Sea 1.9 miles; Kingsbridge 6.8 miles; Salcombe 10.5 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
