Bigbury on Sea is our favourite place to come for our family holiday. The Garden apartment overlooks amazing views. We like space and privacy on holiday and this spectacular garden ticks all the boxes. If you have children it is so convenient to get to the beach which is down a little path at the bottom of the garden, then... more

It's always a pleasure to welcome this delightful family back each year and to see the children grow. I love seeing them running around our large secure garden, leaving their parents free to read or sunbathe. Jordan is a fantastic footballer and we've known Phoebe since she was born, a real little character! We'll look forward to seeing them again... more

This is a superb location with beautiful views of Bigbury Bay, easy access to the beach and lovely local walks. We have been coming to Bigbury on Sea for the past thirty years and this is one of the best locations in which to stay. Gill is a welcoming, caring host; nothing is too much trouble. Thank you Gill for... more

Management response:

It's been great having Mary & Nigel and their family stay with us for the last 2 years and are looking forward to seeing them all for their usual fortnight in September. Mary and her family have built up a special infinity with Bigbury-on-Sea over the last 30 years which is shared by many other returning holiday makers. more

We discovered the garden apartment at Folly Rise by accident on a visit to Bigbury-on-Sea over 15 years ago when our children were small and have been returning every summer since. We have never found anywhere else to better the spectacular views, comfortable accommodation and friendly welcome. Even with our unpredictable summer weather there has always been plenty of activities... more

This super family has been part of our core of loyal returning Guests for many years and it's been a pleasure to see their sons grow into very successful young men. Last year was the parents 25th Anniversary and they decided to go back to Hawaii where they'd had their honeymoon, taking the boys with them They felt this would... more
