Nearest pub

The Pilchard Inn (½ mile)

A small traditional pub originally built over 700 years ago for local fisherman. These days only half the pub is open to the general public (the other half is for locals) and as there is no kitchen only bagettes and drinks are served. Outside seating is available during summer months.

Nearest beach

Bantham (¼ mile)

Bantham Beach is set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has numerous awards tucked under its sandy belt. Overlooking Bigbury Bay and Burgh Island, you can take the famous sea tractor and head to the island or sit and enjoy the views from the shore. A great surfing beach, the huge swathes of sand and sea allow plenty of space for everyone. Well-provisioned and life guarded in the summer, Bantham is a fantastic family-friendly beach.

Great family fun beach

Lovely beach with little coves to hide away in, rock pools and lovely clean sandcastle sand; wide enough for kite buggies, best surfing beach on the south coast along with Bigbury on Sea beach opposite. Burgh Island out to sea with its restored evocative 1930's hotel clinging to the edge was the inspiration for Enid Blyton's Kirrin Island as well as a number of Agatha Christie novels! Dogs allowed on the beach Oct- April and then along the far right hand side (west) during the remainder of the year. Beach balls and skimboards etc plus coffees and teas available from the post office cafe back in the village- great estuary view while sipping away on the deck out back. Lunch or supper in the Sloop pub- best to pre book in season

Nearest walk

Burgh Island (½ mile)

Sat opposite Bigbury-on-Sea, Burgh Island is a tiny tidal island. Home to a scattering of buildings including a hotel, the island becomes completely cut off at high tide. Once the favourite haunt of pirates and smugglers, it’s easy to lose yourself in the atmosphere at Burgh Island.

Thought it might be interesting to go over for dinner, but £60 per person... Pub has unwelcoming signs outside for non-residents. The island is very small and you can walk all the paths in about an hour. The views are not as worthwhile as walking the coast path.

Nice beach

We had a very nice afternoon stop at the beach. Fine sands, fantastic view, clear water.

A lovely place to visit, the views from the top of the island are beautiful. There is also a pub on the island for a well earned drink and the idea of the tide coming in and cutting you off is very unusual and a lot of fun.

Great view

Worth going across to Burgh Island for the view back to the Devon coastline alone. Go to the top of the hill where there is a ruined cottage and walk around it for the full 360. The hotel does look a bit posh if you are in walking gear, but we have promised that we will go back for Sunday lunch. Go to the pub for refuelling but beware, it can get busy in the holiday periods.

A Bygone Age

Well worth a visit just to enjoy the magnificent panorama that this unique view point affords - even better in the evening with a pint at the Pilchard to watch the sun go down!
If you're looking for something a bit different for a special occasion then treat yourself to a stay in the hotel and get the full flavour of this art deco retreat where guests still dress for dinner and enjoy a cocktail or two - the sunsets are even better then!

Nearest town

Bigbury on Sea (¼ mile)

Huge expansive yellow sands, an enchanting island reached by foot at low tide and fat, juicy Bigbury Bay oysters – Bigbury-on-Sea has much to offer the visitor. Take a trip by sea tractor to Burgh Island, where Noel Coward and Agatha Christie attended elegant parties in the 1920s, hire a surfboard and catch some waves, walk the coast path or simply sit back and enjoy the stunning views - Bigbury is at the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Help for Disabled

The Venus Cafe, just below the car park at Bigbury-on-Sea, has a beach wheelchair that can be borrowed free of charge. We were able to wheel my mother over to Burgh Island.
The slopes going down to the beach are quite steep. It's not so bad going down, but you need to be quite strong to push the wheelchair back up!

Shell Out!

Very good sea food restaurant, lots of choice - not just Oysters! Good lively atmosphere - best to book, even at lunchtime.

Rocky's Cafe (2 ¼ miles)

The food at this beachy cafe (full name: Rocky's Chew, Lick and Suck Shop and Cafe) has got a good local reputation. We hear that Rocky is something of a local character too.
