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.

    Photos look very different to reality. It’s all very tired now and externals look worn. Lots of mold in the house. Bedrooms were good though.

    This is one of the original Bigbury-on-Sea cottages. It's a bit old, but recent new carpets and furniture made it comfortable. The big games room was great and the table tennis table was an unexpected bonus. Kitchen well equipped. Sofa's comfy. House was warm and cosy. Bedrooms clean and tidy with comfy beds. Great garden space for games. Good views, especially from the upstairs rooms (although blown double glazing units in a couple of windows in the conservatory were mildly annoying). Easy assess to the beach. Wifi worked well. Good shop in St Ann's about 5 miles drive. A few local pubs, but you need to drive, except for the quirky Pilchard Inn on Burgh Island

    Overall we had a lovely short break at Seadrift. This place is nice and cozy, some may find it a bit dated but we were ok. It's location and the amazing views it has to the sea is priceless. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great during our break, so we did not get the best out of it. Also, local amenities are basic around this place so come stocked up. If you are looking for supermarkets or good restaurants they are about 10 miles out and about 25mts drive.

    Celebrating my sisters birthday with my family we arrived at Bigbury on Sea. Plenty of room in the house, however unfortunately the house needed some TLC. The house needed restoring including window frames which had paint flaking outside and inside the house - Double Glazing blown in the conservatory. The bathrooms needed updating and the back door letter box needed blocking up and not left open to the elements, which made the house very insecure. We had to stuff the letter box up with a tea towel to stop the draft from outside. Central Heating not working - only the stove, not acceptable when my 83 year old mother was suffering from a cold. No toaster facility in the kitchen.The location of the house was absolutely wonderful and the best sea views from most rooms.

    It was okay but would not return. Bad smell in bathroom plumbing. Games room good and bedrooms good size. Garden okay. Would have liked a second front door key. Despite money spent on it still a little shabby.

    The perfect hub for the family with spectacular views from the balcony and only a short walk to the beach. An excellent location for families.

    Wonderful stay in a beautiful location. The views from Seadrift are superb and the house itself is well appointed and very well equipped. Lovely to arrive to find milk in the fridge and a cake ready for afternoon tea on the lawn! We will definitely be back!
