Description

Set within Bigbury-on-Sea with a beautiful beach and classed as an AONB; Seadrift is the perfect holiday location.


The holiday location makes it a superb base from which to explore the many and varied attractions of South Devon. Nearby Thurlestone stands as a pretty ‘chocolate-box’ village, with its pink-washed thatched cottages and unspoilt sandy beach framed by rolling farmland. The busy market town of Kingsbridge with its fine Tudor and Georgian buildings acts as the ‘capital’ of the South Hams region, and serves as the hub of local transport services to the surrounding villages. During the summer months, a ferry runs from here to Devon’s most southerly resort of Salcombe, once a former fishing village and now a major sailing resort thronging with visitors. A few miles south of Salcombe at Sharpitor, the National Trust oversees the elegant Edwardian house of Otto Overbeck, a scientist whose varied collection of items is on display to the public. Overlooking the Salcombe estuary, the beautiful garden of Overbecks enjoys fine views and is home to a selection of rare plants, trees and shrubs growing within its warm microclimate.

In the opposite direction lies Plymouth, with its many naval and seafaring connections. Rebuilt after the Second World War, it stands as a complex mixture of modern day facilities and attractions with strong roots in history – the Barbican area around Sutton Harbour retaining many links. The Elizabethan House found here is furnished as it would have been in the time of Sir Francis Drake (who set out from Plymouth to circumnavigate the world), and the Island House is another place of note – believed to have been where the Pilgrim Fathers lodged before setting sail for America. From Plymouth, river and fishing trips can be arranged and there are sailing and windsurfing schools. Shop in Bigbury.

    Leak in the Lounge if not repaired ceiling will eventually fall down. Dripping shower and taps upstairs. Lot of T.L.C. needed for this house. Lovely location but getting to the stage not worth the money for a week. This is our fourth time at Seadrift.

    Fantastic location,but a very tired property in need of a makeover and some of the high rental receipts being spent on it.The games room only needs a small amount in order to repair/ replace the table tennis top and net,plus new bats.also pool cues need proper tips,dartboard needs darts and the table football needs strengthening. I have attached a photo of the conservatory,but have others if you are interested. We would however return to this house because it is family friendly and is in the most wonderful location.

    Seadrift is in an ideal location with spectacular views and the house is the perfect size for large groups. Sadly, this year, I would not recommend this house to anyone as it is in the most dire need of maintenance and a substantial clean throughout. Some of the complaints we had was the bedding that smelt as though it hadn't been washed and one duvet set was covered in "sick"; towels that were stained and smelt musty; substantial amounts of mould and damp around the house; black mould on freezer door(health hazard); oven door would not stay shut so couldn't cook anything; toilet handles did not work properly;equipment in games room all broken;upstairs shower disgustingly dirty;an infestation of woodlice and small brown moths. This is a very unfortunate review because if the house was brought up to standard it would be utterly amazing and worth the price expected for renting (compared to other Devon coastal properties we have rented in the past).

    Seadrift was in a fab location, 5 mins from the beach and views of Burgh Island and a fabulous beach to walk on. We were out of season so not much open but enjoyed Venus café on the beach, no local shops open. The cottage was lovely although in need of some TLC. There was a not left to say the shower was leaking and was dripping all through our stay, the note mentioned that the plumber had been informed, no visit from plumber - when the shower was used, water poured through the ceiling!! So we booked for a party of 10 as it had 2 showers, had to make do with 1. The house itself was perfect for our party, although we were told on booking intermediate WIFI - there was NONE, so be came armed with our tablets, to watch films in case of bad weather, as we had four young children, and were unable too. There was damp in the sunroom which was due to a broken drainpipe which could have easily been repaired, and two windows had their seals blown which made the windows murky. There was also an old cupboard which had had a lock on but was broken, this was easy for the children to open and it was very messy in there, and smelt damp with a dirty old toilet in there!! The kitchen was new and fairly well equipped, some of the basics were missing like egg slices. The games room was a good addition, but the equipment and tables had seen better days, which sadly did not make the most of this plus. Noticed that some of these points have been made on previous reviews and obviously not been addressed.
