We had a fantastic stay at Sunnynook. The house and location are truly stunning. The house was spotlessly clean with fantastic facilities and the pool was brilliant (and more than warm enough). There were 10 of us in our party and there was more than enough room to enjoy the holiday without feeling on top of each other. Utterly spectacular views and the beach and amenities were very close by. Would absolutely love to stay there again!

Lovely property in a spectacular location.

We had an absolutely fantastic stay at Sunnynook and haven't stopped talking about it since we returned home. Whether it is the first time, or every time after you look out of the windows, the view never gets old, especially from the balcony in the top bedroom. A big thanks to Tanya and Bryony for their help in booking the property, it was really appreciated. We were a party of 9 and found the property to be very spacious and really well equipped for all of our needs, the owners have clearly put a lot of thought into making sure everyone who stays here has a fantastic time. We really hope to be able to come back again in the future, thank you :-).

Everything was stunning i would highly recommend. You will not be disappointed. Sunny nook has everything you need for the most perfect holiday. Memories will last forever.

Wow!! It sounds like you had the most amazing time at Sunnynook. We're thrilled that you had such a wonderful holiday and thank you for sharing your lovely review. Julie, Customer Support

Wonderful property, great views, would go back in an instant!!

Sunnynook is a lovely house and fits Classic Cottages description exactly.

Sunnynook is the perfect house and location for an extended family break. The views are extraordinary and never get old. Beautiful! The house is spacious, beautifully done and the outside space is the best we’ve ever had; and we’ve had some excellent holiday homes. Amazing patio area overlooking the beautiful beaches and a good sized pool for family games and lazing during the heatwave. Perfect!

Lovely property with stunning views,ideal for a large family.

The property was exceptional in every way. The location was unbeatable, spotlessly clean, smelled beautiful, very well equipped kitchen. A very small item was that there was no hand rail on the back stairs, which isn't an issue if you are young & fit but we didn't want to mark the walls by putting hands on it. The fact that the steps to the beach had hand rail all the way down was a bonus. Our request for replacement gas bottle was sorted out immediately. Fabulous holiday, thank you.

A wonderful location with stunning views and direct, private access to the beach. The house was spotlessly clean too. Watch out for the swimming pool however - despite being apparently heated it is very, very cold!

Thanks so much for taking the time to review Sunnynook and we're so pleased you enjoyed your time at this very special property. The swimming pool is heated by an air-source heat pump, which runs off the ambient air temperature. During warm summer months the approximate temperature would be around 28 degrees, however it will be much cooler when the ambient outdoor temperature is lower. Tressa, Customer Support

Make sure you are aware the access roads to Bigbury on sea are very narrow and in lots of areas sre single file.

Wonderful holiday, just wow!

Beautiful property in a wonderful peaceful location Real get away from it all

Location and views are fantastic, and the pub on Burgh Island was awesome.

We had a wonderful week in Sunnynook. The weather was mixed yet every day was special, either looking out of the 'television' window at the amazing kite surfers (arguably the best view you could get of the sea's activites) or down the convenient staircase straight down onto the beach! The house is well equipt, spacious, warm and luxury. Utterly amazing, I'd recommend to anyone who wants a truly special week in a great location; quiet enough for the feeling of seclusion yes close enough for freindly walks convenience of shops and restaurants.

We enjoyed "sunnynook villa" every minute of our holiday in South Devon. Thrilled by the outstanding location, the great view and the superb equipment, we spent more time at the house than originally planned. It is ideal for a big family or like us (two families from Germany) with teenager children. Enough space for everbody. Very supportive staff, in case we needed something. Will keep these moments long in mind and love to come back.

This property is perfect for our family get together. Trying to suit three generations can be difficult but because there was plenty of space we never felt crowded. The heated swimming pool was used everyday and it was also nice that the younger generations could hide themselves away in the games room occasionally. The views from the large picture windows are stunning and will be sorely missed.

Amazing property, exceeded all expectations ! We loved every minute of our holiday, especially the views and the swimming pool. Very family friendly and superbly equipped with everything you need for an enjoyable and care free stay. The beach is a stones throw away and lots to do in the surrounding area. We shall definitely be returning !

This is an absolutely stunning property which more than lived up to our expectations. The views are stunning, the pool was warm, the living area is vast and beautiful. It's very expensive but really worth it for a special occasion. Only downside is that the WiFi is pretty much non-existent.

We're delighted to hear you had such a wonderful holiday at Sunnynook - the views certainly are incredible! We've noted your comments about the WiFi and we're sorry you had some problems - we appreciate that in some rural and coastal locations the signal can occasionally become a little glitchy but we'll certainly pass this on to the housekeeper and owner for their attention. Bryony, Customer Support

Sunnynook is excellent, thoroughly recommend! Beach walks are a must with the tide out. Make sure you pop over to Burgh Island. Lots of national trust in the area and things to do. Enjoy.
