Congratulations! You have just found the most perfect family holiday home by the sea. Boasting incredible coastline and sea views, two privately enclosed gardens, a fabulously stylish yet comfortable open plan interior and all capped off with a sandy beach within walking distance - what more could you want!
This beautiful property has been furnished to a high standard yet remains very welcoming, offering a wonderful open plan layout which enables you to enjoy the fabulous views from almost every room. However, to really make the most of this fantastic spot, grab a good book and a glass of something tasty and step out of the living-room onto the raised patio and relax in the sun, or go around the corner to the exceptionally private decked-area and stretch out on one of the sun loungers supplied for your extra enjoyment.
This gorgeous property is not only perfect in the summer, it is a rather special destination in the cooler months too. Offering very attractive discounts for smaller groups, Tarquin offers superb value for money for the perfect off-peak break - all the splendour of this beautiful house at an affordable price. The beautiful open fire, full central heating and cosy living-areas make snuggling up in this fabulous property a real treat. However, please ensure that you enjoy a refreshing coastal walk as this location is just as special in the cooler months. A real year-round treat.
Dining and playing al fresco is a holiday must and is made so easy to do in the front garden of this fabulous house. Serving up a feast in the beautiful enclosed garden is a lovely holiday treat, especially as it provides the perfect play zone for the younger members of the group - you may even get to eat a meal in peace!
Tarquin is a fabulous family-friendly house with spectacular sea views and easy access to one of south Devon's favourite sandy beaches.
There really is endless fun to be had in this very sought-after location. Perhaps a stroll along this staggering coastline is on your 'to do' list, if so - great choice! As you meander around these stunning coastal routes, please ensure the camera is close to hand, as the views will be worth a snap or two! Or maybe someone in the group has a burning desire to learn to surf - if so, help is at hand, only a short distance away is a very friendly and professional surf school who are equipped to teach on all levels - why not give it a go?
There is so much to do for the adventure monkeys of the group; surfing, paddle boarding and kayaking are all very popular on Bigbury beach. With the facilities and equipment located on the beach and readily available for hire - what are you waiting for! Or perhaps 18 holes of golf at Bigbury golf course is your ideal way to spend the day, all this and more on your doorstep.
Bigbury is also home to well-known Burgh Island. A trip over to this captivating island via sea tractor is a real must; a rare and unique treat which the younger members of your group will talk about for years.
Whilst on the island why not pay a visit to the Pilchard Inn? The Pilchard Inn has quenched thirsts for over 700 years, and clientele ranging from local fishermen to smugglers and wreckers alike have enjoyed the delights within. Or perhaps the Art Deco hotel is on your 'to do' list, which has also welcomed guests such as Agatha Christie, The Beatles and Noel Coward in years gone by. The beaches, coastal walks and surrounding areas in this stunning location offer you adventure, unspoilt beauty and endless entertainment in every direction.
The towns and villages of Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Dartmouth, Totnes and Brixham are also within striking distance via car. These exceptionally popular towns and villages all hold so much individual charm and character, making them a great day out for all the family. Tarquin is a super all year round holiday location with a huge range of activity, unspoilt natural beauty and a golden beach right on your doorstep - what is not to love!
