    • “Lovely spacious apartment with an unbeatable view you would never tire of and we were lucky to have sunshine 6 out of 7 days but it was very cold and the underfloor heating only worked in the en suites! We used the various electric heaters quite a bit !. Having said that, the apartment was really well equipped and we thoroughly enjoyed staying there. The pool was really nice but too cold especially for our 2 year old granddaughter hence we only used it the once which was a shame! The cafe food was ok but a tad expensive for basic menu. The roads leading to the apartment/ beach are a pain ( often the case I know for this type of location!) but they are particularly narrow and the going is sooooo slow!! As you drive down towards the beach tho........ you forget about the frustrating drive because that VIEW ! ***Owners Response*** We are delighted that you enjoyed the wonderful views from the apartment, and had such wonderful weather. The underfloor heating at the property works is very efficient and simple to operate and we’re really sorry that our caretaker Jenny wasn’t contacted because she would have been happy to help you .”

    Mr Riches, Hereford, October 2018

    • “This was our fourth visit to apartment 6 which is faultless. However, the restaurant facilities on site are now very poor. We stayed 1st week in September but as far as the service from the restaurant goes it already felt like mid-winter. Advertised 'specials' e.g. Tues 2 for 1 steak night were cancelled without communication, the menu and resultant food was poor and on one occasion when attempting to get a meal at 5:30 (when the restaurant is supposed to open until 8pm in September) I was told that the chef had been sent home as "it did not seem very busy". This may sound like a small gripe but it is very difficult the get food in the area without a considerable drive. The local 'Bay View Cafe' has been shut for 2 years now and although the Pilchard Inn offers burgers and Pizzas access is reliant on the tide and vagaries of a 'Sea Tractor'. The nearest food shop and pub where access does not rely on tide times are 2.5 miles away along a narrow road with lots of traffic.”

    Mr Perkins, ROMSEY, August 2018

    • “This is a comfortable apartment with 2 big comfy sofas and one big comfy chair and a super large and comfy main bed and twin bed room. Ensuites very good. The beauty of being right on the sea front and watching the tides part to each side of the island to form a very broad causeway (and link to very large sandy beaches either side gives endless enjoyment). the big ground floor terrace was a bonus. Nice BBQ. Downside, no mobile signal at all until 2-3 miles away for us so hard to handle work. Wifi in apartment. Beach not crowded, not even on Bank Hols, and simple surf and paddle board hire facilities. Kite boarding and canoeing also good here. Club House great and little pool next to it for rainy days”

    Mrs Carter, Thatcham, August 2018

    • “Beautiful location no matter what the weather......”

    Mrs Johnston - Jones, CAMBRIDGE, July 2018

    • “The location was absolutely out of this world different tides every day beautiful sunsets. Apartment was homely everything was in it what you needed. All in all paradise, can,t wait to come back again”

    Mr Salmon, Birmingham, June 2018

    • “Perfect place to unwind & have some quality family time! So quiet, especially at night which was just perfect for us!”

    Mrs O'Mahony, GUILDFORD, June 2018

    • “This was our second visit to No. 6. We had brilliant weather for the whole week and we love the location of the apartment. The accommodation is brilliant for two couples. No complaints!”

    Mrs Naughten, Leatherhead, May 2018

    • “We enjoyed another lovely week at Burgh Island Causeway, there are some areas for improvement to the flat that we have shared with the owner, but overall, it is a comfortable & well appointed flat. We very much enjoyed the beach, pool, cafe, views over to Burgh Island & the surrounding countryside as well as some wonderful days out at Powderham Castle, Salcombe, Saltram House & Overbecks.”

    Mrs Morris, Pamber Heath, 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.
