High Lea is fabulous place to stay. So handy being only 5 minutes walk from the beach and with 3 places to eat and lots of lovely walks it was the perfect place for us with our 3 children and 2 dogs. The house has everything you need and the views from the garden are amazing.

The cottage is immaculately maintained with great layout, good equipment and a nice garden. There are lovely walks and beautiful views. We thoroughly enjoyed our winter stay and intend to return!

Superb location, loved staying there.

Lovely property in wonderful location with stunning views! Would definitely return

We have booked for next year

can't get tired of the amazing view!

Lovely house. Beautiful views. Beautiful location. Enjoyed our surf lesson - the school was located right by the beach. Walks in the area on the Coastal path were stunning,

Thank you for your lovely comments for High Lea. We are delighted to read that you had a great time - especially enjoying your surf lesson! We hope to welcome you back in the future. Sarah, Customer Support

High Lea at Bigbury on Sea is a gem for those looking for a quiet peaceful holiday with great views from the garden and access to lovely walks either along the coastal paths or along the beach. Facilities in the area are limited (take essentials) with additional Supermarket shopping available in Kingsbridge, etc. Hope for good weather.

The views were better than expected based on the photos. We hope to come back in the warmer months.

Great cottage, superb views, high standard of cleanliness. Disappointing that the walk-in shower did not function and the effluent in the front garden.

We are pleased to confirm that a plumber has attended and the problem has now been rectified. We were concerned to learn from your review that you found effluent in the front garden. This was of course immediately investigated but we could not find any trace or evidence of anything untoward. We're delighted that you enjoyed those breathtaking views and found the cleanliness to be top-notch in this gorgeous property - always reassuring in these unprecedented times. We hope to welcome you back soon. Tressa, Customer Services

On the whole, we had a wonderful break. However, the plumbing needs sorting at this property as my husband had to fix the plumbing air locks daily, showers were interrupted at ALL uses by air locks and we did need the plumber to come to the property who told us that the problem was known to the management company and presumably, the owners. The bath plug was very slow to empty.... on further inspection , this was due to a mass of hair in the plug hole which I cut out with my own scissors. The cleaner hadn’t checked this despite the ‘get out by 9am, come in after 5pm‘ for DEEP CLEANING. I don’t think so. The property was ok cleaning wise but not deep cleaned. Cobwebs happen over night, I understand that but for them to have thick dust on them around the bookcase and coasters with tea stains that’s not a deep clean in our eyes. However, bedding, floors etc, pots and most areas were clean. It was minor... apart from the bath plug hole, that wasn’t pleasant! I feel the property should also be advertised as at the top of the hill. Anyone with mobility difficulties would find the walk difficult and need to use a battery scooter or car to get to the beach. The tv was also an issue for us as there was no signal for terrestrial tv. We were out all day but in the evenings, it would have been nice to actually watch the news live and relax. Netflix was the night entertainment which some would love but it’s not for us. This may seem like a minor issue to you but our daughter has autism and it really was not minor. The home was beautiful. Beautiful views, tastefully furnished and otherwise well equipped for our needs. Just a couple of niggles.

Thank you so much for taking the time to send us feedback. We were pleased to be able to arrange for a plumber to attend to the issues during your stay and the problem has now been resolved. We are glad to see that for the most part you were happy with the cleaning and that on a whole the other items were minor, but the issues mentioned will be investigated. We are glad that you found the property to be beautiful and have fantastic views, a well-equipped property is always a must when on holiday, the less that you need to bring with you the better! We would love to welcome you back. Sarah, Customer Support

The property exceeded our expectations. It was beautifully furnished and well equipped and the view from the garden is addictive! It is nearer to the beach than we imagined and was a very easy amble down (even loaded with beach equipment)! We had an absolutely wonderful stay at High Lea and will definitely be back for another holiday here! Thank you

Fabulous views and garden. Home from home. Very comfortable with all amenities required.

This cottage is beautiful, such a lovely relaxing place to stay! The view is stunning and would definitely return to this property. You will need to take provisions as there are no shops nearby.

High View is a lovely holiday property with good views and comfortable accommodation. It has easy access to the beach, which is superb. Take supplies as there is no immediate access to a suitable shop.

Fantastic cottage in an amazing, peaceful location with fabulous views of the beach. Perfect outdoor seating area to enjoy. The cottage is well equipped with good quality items. We've visited Bigbury on Sea for 7 years and loved this stay so much that we have requested to book for next year already!

Totally relaxing, invigorating, wonderful place to recharge all human batteries and to allow your dogs to have a amazing holiday! Thank you High Lea xx

Great location once you arrive at the warm and cosy cottage, lovely walks on your doorstep, fabulous views out across the bays.

This is a lovely property in a fantastic location. It is comfortable and has a very relaxing atmosphere. The views are spectacular rain or shine.

Fabulous view, great location and had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay at High Lea. We really enjoyed watching the surfers and paddleboarders at Bantham through the binocs which were provided. Looking forward to trying in the warmer months

Great accomodation in a wonderful location gave us the most relaxing break we’ve had in years.

Fantastic cottage with amazing views of Bigbury Bay. It was clean, well furnished and equipped, warm and comfortable. Ideal location for exploring the South Hams region and coastal path. Definitely one of the best cottages we've stayed in.

A nice property in an amazing location. A stones throw from the beach and great for walks along the coast path

This was a lovely well equipped place to stay and the views from the garden were just amazing. We had a wonderful holiday at High Lea.

A lovely decorated and well equipped house with spectacular views. Great area with lots of coastal walks on the door step and lovely beaches.
