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.

    A great location for our week's holiday in Bigbury-on-Sea. Very comfortable house with plenty of room for everyone. House needs some attention but this did not affect our stay. Views from upstairs windows are fantastic. Nice big garden for children to play in. Five minutes from the beach.

    We all had an excellent week at Seadrift - lovely house in an excellent location with great seaviews. Unfortunately there is an infestation of small moths throughout the house. Also, the DVD player did not work.

    Location is everything for us and Seadrift is perfect for this. Parking for 3 cars off road is great and the garden is fantastic. Inside, the kitchen is more than adequate for our long weekend stay, the lounge and dining room also suit us as we are mostly out during the day. If the owners asked about any improvements that could be done then i would suggest an upgrade to some mattresses, a larger fridge/freezer and slightly better equipment in the games room. We have been 5 times now and have yet to play a game of pool with tipped cues. Overall we still love it and i am sure we shall be there next year.

    Great location with good views and close to the shore. Good equipment in the kitchen though cooker hood extractor did not work. We enjoyed the cottage especially the conservatory. The drainage from downstairs shower remains slow - ? needs some plughole unblocker. The minor defects in decor can easily be disregarded.

    Fantastic location with wonderful sea views. Perfect house for our book club group as no one minds sharing rooms but rather not beds, so lots of single beds which was great. House was clean and kitchen looks new and up to date. We didn't use the games room but it would be fantastic for a family mixed age group. Only a couple of snags, downstairs shower doesn't drain very quickly and a larger cafetière would have been appreciated as the small 3 cup was in constant use! All in all we had a fantastic long weekend with beautiful coastal walks, and it did help that the sun shone.

    The location of the property would be difficult to beat but the property itself is in need of repair with misted double glazing units, peeling wallpaper and stained ceilings. Several other reviewers have made the same comment but nothing appears to get done. There is a strange smell coming from the laundry room, again commented on by numerous other guests. We were only there for the weekend but on arrival found that the kettle did not work nor did the dishwasher. Despite telephoning we were not able to get any response from the caretaker and as we had 15 for supper on the Saturday night it was inconvenient to say the least. It very much looks as though the owner knows people will keep going back because of it's location so doesn't see the need to address it's problems.

Upstairs Shower now lovely and hot, New window that closes in downstairs bedroom and many more. Lovely tray with cups, teapot and biscuit's waiting for us when we arrived. Very Clean as it was the time before. Another lovely week at a beautiful location and Holiday Home. Thank You.

    Second visit, superb location, but a number of general maintenance jobs need doing - Also no hoover available & had to deal with water ingress in the porch between house and games room but more importantly through the ceiling in the living room onto the settee . Also there is a store room used by the cleaners which did smell (possible dead rodent). Having said this, we have re booked for next year because of the property location and it's views

    Overall brilliant holiday. Wish there was a vacum cleaner or even a broom to clean up especially as we had children. Needs updating especially the games room regarding the equipment.
