We enjoyed a wonderfully refreshing week in this spacious house. There was plenty of room for the children to run around and even watch television separately from us in the annexe. Each morning we were greeted with a stunning view of the sea and the beautiful Bigbury beach. Every evening we watched the sun set and then the moon and...

Management response:

So happy you enjoyed the stay and thank you for your kind words, Mike and Farhana

Easy to book with a simple handover on the day. Bed linen changed and house cleaned on the middle Saturday of a 2 week stay. Made use of the self contained Annex and the large project screen in the main house, particularly, to watch the football. Excellent views across Bigbury Bay and to Burgh Island. Sandy Beaches within 5 minutes...

Just a view to die for and to be greeted by that every morning/evening, was wonderful, even on a dull day. The property was very well equipped,...

Thank you very much for your kind words. We're delighted to hear you had a good time!
