The beautiful sandy Bigbury beach. Good luck tearing the little ones away.

Welcome to The Bigbury Retreat, a superbly renovated detached barn surrounded by its own enclosed gardens with magnificent countryside views which look down across the River Avon over to the Bantham Estate. These stunning views can be enjoyed from almost every room in the house, all topped off by top to toe luxury throughout.

The secluded rural setting is inland from the beautiful south Devon coastline, however only minutes by car will find you being greeted by the glorious sandy beach in Bigbury-on-Sea, not forgetting the infamous Burgh Island, both of which are fabulous days out for both young and old.

This beautifully designed property is perfect for family holidays and special occasions. The attention to detail flows throughout, from a designer kitchen with all mod-cons to a fabulous sitting-room with wood-burning stove and Smart TV (which also includes Sky), and adjoining snug room with a second TV, four luxurious bedrooms - two of which are en suite - with a family bathroom to perfect the offering, ideal for washing the day's sun cream and sand away.

This beautiful barn has something for everyone! With a fully enclosed garden equipped with a barbecue and neatly appointed patio, making the most of the sunshine from sunrise to sunset is a must. There is fabulous space for children to play and the gardens are fully enclosed offering parents peace of mind due to the lack of escape routes.

Bigbury-on-Sea is itself one of the jewels in the South Hams' crown. Taking a trip over to Burgh Island is a must, especially if you leave it until the tide is in, as the sea-tractor ferry service is a fabulous adventure. Bigbury-on-Sea is also home to one of the most stunning beaches; whether you choose to while away the day on the golden sand or try your hand at something more adventurous on the water, such as windsurfing or canoeing, Bigbury's beautiful beach is perfect for both.

Or perhaps something a little slower for the avid golfers of the party. Bigbury Golf Club welcomes our guests with open arms, so why not enjoy a round of golf (at the cost of the usual club fees) followed by a drink and a bite to eat at Bigbury Golf Club. Sounds wonderful to me!

So whether your day entails venturing off to enjoy the beautiful neighbouring towns and villages of Kingsbridge, Modbury, Dartmouth and Salcombe, a sandy day on the beach rock-pooling and paddling, or simply sitting back and relaxing with a good book and a glass of something tasty, The Bigbury Retreat and its wonderful location offers it all.
