Burgh Island View is a modern holiday home with some of the best views in Devon. The beachfront holiday apartment is part of the luxurious Burgh Island Causeway complex, which also houses a gym, swimming pool, and a restaurant. Imagine starting your day with breakfast on your private balcony, steps away from the beach at Bigbury on Sea with incredible views toward Burgh Island. The apartment sleeps four people in two ensuite bedrooms and suits couples, families and friends. It's available for bookings all year round.
Bigbury-on-Sea is a relaxed village with a vast sandy South Devon beach, plentiful opportunities for swimming, surfing, bodyboarding, kiteboarding and windsurfing. Equipment hire is readily available if you don't have your own board. The village is part of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and there are spectacular walks and bike rides in the area, both along the coast and through the scenic South Devon countryside. You can walk along the sandy causeway that links the mainland to Burgh Island at low tide, taking the sea tractor if you're worried about getting caught out by the tide or if you've booked a table for a romantic dinner at the award-winning Burgh Island Hotel.
Activities to enjoy away from the beach include playing golf. Be warned! The views from Bigbury's golf course are so distracting you may find your usual handicap too low. Go paddleboarding or coasteering. Hire a boat or book a seat on a sightseeing boat tour or an adrenaline-fuelled powerboat trip. Explore other parts of the coast, including Challaborough Beach, Hope Cove, Salcombe, and Bolt Head. The historic city of Plymouth, with its fantastic Art Deco lido, shops, restaurants, and museums, is around 10 miles from the apartment, providing a full day (and night) of fun. Other local attractions include National Trust Saltram House and Gardens, Overbecks Museum and Garden, and Dartmoor Zoo.
Bigbury-on-Sea is a holiday destination for all seasons, not only summer. There's nothing better than watching the choppy winter waves from the comfort of your sofa or stepping into a local cafe for a hot drink after a chilly autumnal bike ride or coastal walk. The owners of Burgh Island View can arrange the hire of kayaks and other equipment - please enquire when booking.
