Located only moments from the fabulous golden sands of Bigbury Beach, just minutes from the beautiful Burgh island, this magnificent detached house is situated perfectly, making that special dream holiday by the sea a reality.
Dolphin House is furnished and equipped to the highest of standards. TVs in each bedroom, four bath/shower rooms (three en suites and a family bathroom), complemented by a huge sitting-room which opens out onto the raised balcony, offering stunning coastal views over Bigbury beach and out to sea. The stylish yet comfortable interiors, coupled with such a magical location makes Dolphin House an unbeatable setting for that special family break.
Action and adventure is also close at hand, with Bigbury beach being the perfect spot for a touch of windsurfing or canoeing (with the aid of the local surf schools), or as you have kayaks and body boards at your disposal compliments of Dolphin House, it would be a shame not to take to the water a least once!
So whether it be relaxing on the beach, a touch of action on the water or simply dining and playing together as a family in this fabulous house, Dolphin House offers all this and much more, making it an all year round holiday destination.
Should you be able to tear yourself away from this spectacular setting, the neighbouring towns of Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Dartmouth and Kingswear are certainly worth experiencing. Within a short car journey, you can be at any one of these beautiful places, all offering something very special.
For your extra enjoyment there are some other rather special sporting facilities at your disposal. You could pop up to Bigbury Golf Club and put your golfing skills to the test (at the cost of the usual club fees) to name one. Or maybe you would just prefer to enjoy a Devon cream tea in the luxurious surroundings of the Burgh Island Hotel; if so, this is on offer with the hotel's warmest welcome.
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 perhaps someone in the group has a burning desire to learn to hand-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 at all levels.
To finish off a special holiday, an evening out is always the way to go, and there is none more exciting or romantic than taking the sea tractor (at high tide) over to Burgh Island and treating yourselves to a spot of food at The Pilchard Inn. The Pilchard Inn has served fine food and wine for over 700 years. This characterful inn has been a favourite haunt with smugglers and local fishermen for centuries, so for one night (at least) we would certainly recommend taking a trip over.
Not only does Dolphin House offer splendid views and activities galore, it offers comfort, style and luxury coupled with a warm welcome and oodles of space. Dolphin House is a magical all year round holiday destination for all generations, which you will find yourself returning to year after year.
