Lovely place to stay if you want peace and quiet in the winter months. Beautiful walks, stunning scenery, fantastic dog friendly beaches.

We had a great time staying at The Qube. We had 4 teenagers with us and they really liked the place. Sadly we didn't have great weather but I can imagine that the outside space would be fantastic in the hotter weather. The barbecue is great and the layout of the kitchen and outside space is ideal. The location is brilliant - short walk to the shop, pub, beach and fish and chip shop. The house is lovely and modern and really bright. Very enjoyable stay!

The Qube is a great property….we spent a lovely week with our family…three generations with plenty of space for everyone!! Just a 2 min walk to the beach was a real plus and with other wonderful beaches and walks nearby we hardly used the car! The youngsters joined a three day surfing class at Bigbury which they loved and Nanna and Grandad were treated to an amazing afternoon tea at the Burgh Island Hotel…complete with tractor ride!! We can thoroughly recommend choosing the Qube !

There are 12 Qubes. They all look into each other and the views are of caravans. The photos on the website do not reflect the location at all.
This is not Bigbury. It’s challaborough Bay.
The beach is lovely as is the surrounding area.
The property is comfortable but be aware that it’s a goldfish bowl and you can’t open windows for air!

Thank you so much for your helpful feedback. We're really sorry that you didn't find our photos informative, and we've now added another photo which we hope captures a true reflection of this select development. We're so pleased that you found this gorgeous retreat comfortable and to make the most of the fresh coastal air each bedroom has an opening window or sliding doors and upstairs boasts large patio doors along with a small window.

The Qube is a comfortable and fairly well equipped house, a very short walk from the lovely beach at Challaborough. We enjoyed our stay with our 3 sons, helped by good weather and the excellent location for access to the beach.
The house is one of a row of around 12 houses in a secure modern development with gated access. The houses are separated by the driveways, which have space for 3 cars parked end-to-end (last in, first out) and the decked area which looks down the driveway towards the neighbouring holiday park, which also provides the vista from the large windows to the front. There is no outside storage for bikes and boards, so be prepared to carry bikes through the house, up the stairs and lock them to the metal stairs to the roof terrace if you’re not prepared to risk leaving them out front.
We found the house to be clean and fairly well equipped with plenty of crockery, cutlery and decent quality pans - even a knife sharpener. The gas BBQ is very good, with plenty of gas supplies. The large induction job didn’t get much use, but worked well for what little indoor cooking we did.
A coffee machine would have been a welcome addition - we found a small cafetière, but we couldn’t find the espresso maker that features in the pictures so if you enjoy a good coffee I’d suggest bringing your own (if it’s ok for an induction hob) and some grounds to use.
Considering the location, we ordered a supermarket delivery for the evening we arrived with food of a family of 5 for the week to avoid needing to go in and out for supplies. There’s a standard under-counter size fridge and separate freezer and a good size drinks fridge, which we were glad of as we’d have been a bit tight on fridge space without. Washer/drier and dishwasher were welcome, and a few tablets for each were provided.
A welcome pack with tin of instant coffee, box of PG Tips, some milk and, slightly unusually, a box of Toffiffee was provided - I don’t recommend dunking the Toffiffee! (or eating then at all if, like one of our party, you have a nut allergy). The NISA in Challaborough is 5 mins walk away and pretty well stocked for odds and ends, bits and bobs for the beach and souvenirs, but I wouldn’t rely on it for fresh produce. It closes at 7pm, so if you’re arriving late make sure you bring what you need.
The furniture for the most part is stylish and in good condition; I would call it comfortable and functional, rather than luxurious. Maybe it’s just that the all-white minimalist look isn’t really to my taste, but it felt a bit sparse, especially in the bedrooms downstairs. For example, the master bedroom had one bedside table, not two as pictured, and a metal and plastic folding chair for dressing; as far as I recall the other bedrooms had no chairs at all. It also seemed a bit odd to have a massive TV in one bedroom but none in the master.
Other reviews have mentioned the roads coming in to the house. We stayed in peak season and had no

We're pleased to hear you liked the fabulous location of The Qube being so close to the beach. We will certainly pass on your helpful suggestion of some outside storage to the owners when looking to make future improvements. We'd very much like to welcome you back to Classic Cottages in the future. Kelsey, Customer Support

The most fantastic property in a great location. Could not have been better! Enjoyed by all our family (including 3 older teenagers!) Lots to do around the area including great restaurants. We would highly recommend this property and area
Mrs Williams September 2021
This is a fantastic holiday property.....it was a real treat to stay in and the quality of everything in the Qube is first class. Less than a 5 minute walk to Challaborough Bay beach and some nice walks on the doorstep, with Burgh Island and more beaches within easy walking distance. I would recommend booking any local pubs/meals well in advance of arriving and also booking a food delivery!
