The property

... just 20 yards from Bigbury-on-Sea's big and splendid sandy beach, looking to Burgh Island over the sandy causeway, are 29 stunning, high quality apartments, of which we let 13. Within the same building are excellent leisure facilities and a restaurantThe 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 (until 8pm from September; reservations recommended), 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 24. On the top floor, with stunning sea/beach views looking right across at the island, a comfortable, child-friendly apartment. Open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) with TV/DVD and sliding doors to balcony (table/chairs, great for sundowners). Two bedrooms – double (5' bed) with TV and en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath), and children's twin with en suite shower-room (suite, bidet). Best for 2 adults/2 children.

Loved the apartment, it had every you needed and more, but the location was the real showstopper; it's pretty hard to beat that view over to Burgh Island.It doesn't get much better than that.
