----------------The Bigbury-on-Sea area

Bigbury on Sea, in the centre of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to Dartmoor, is a beautiful coastal village famous for its expanse of beautiful sandy beach with a causeway, flooded at high tide, leading to Burgh Island and its internationally famous Art Deco hotel. Bigbury / Bantham beaches are famous for surfing and every kind of watersport, with equipment available for hire on the beach. The extensive beaches are also ideal for children to play on with soft sand and three RNLI lifeguard stations. The village is situated on the South West Coast path and is an ideal base for walking in the beautiful countryside.

Kingsbridge is nearby and its fun to drive along the scenic road (flooded at high tide!) up the River Avon, well known for its birdlife and kayaking. Close by there are attractive cliff top and coastal walks, as well as other beaches and coves for fishing, with sailing and boating at nearby Salcombe and Dartmouth and golf at the beautiful 18 hole Bigbury course a five minute drive away.

The hotel, a few minutes walk from the house, was a former haunt of Edward and Mrs Simpson, Churchill and Agatha Christie and was recently voted the Most Romantic Hotel in Britain. It serves non-residents Dinner (black tie) (7 nights) and Sunday lunch making a wonderful location for that special celebration meal. The Pilchard Inn, a 700 year old smuggling inn, also on the island, serves local beers and food at lunchtime and Friday evenings.

At high tide access to the island is via a unique long legged ‘sea tractor’ running at half hourly intervals.

The village also has two beach restaurants, a General store and the excellent Discovery Surf and watersport school.

If the weather is poor, there is a pub/restaurant (seasonal) ten minutes walk away in Challaborough with pool tables, darts, Sports TV, arcade games, quizzes and more.

Our favourite way to spend an evening is to wander down to the local beach for a BBQ and some beach games with friends. There are two clever fold-up barbeques in the house which can cater for 8 to 10 easily. Take the house beach cricket set and ‘boules’ for games with the kids whilst dinner is cooking. Then watch the sun set over Burgh Island whilst enjoying a few glasses of wine and some fresh BBQ fish and seafood (if you can’t catch any off the beach there are two great local fishmongers selling day boat fish.)

As well as an outstanding beach holiday resort, Bigbury on Sea is also an ideal base for exploring Dartmoor and the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which extends from Dartmouth through Salcombe across the Avon, Erme and Yealm estuaries.

-------------------Our Favourite Days Out in Devon

-------Salcombe Boating and Beach picnic

Salcombe, playground of the rich and famous, is only half an hours drive away. Pick up a gastronomic picnic from one of the delis there and either hire a motorboat or take one of the many ferries from town to South Sands or East Portlemouth beaches and spend the day sunbathing, swimming in the crystal clear water or just watching the activity on the water (very busy in Regatta week). Alternatively you could wander round the interesting shops and enjoy a traditional Devon cream tea by the waterside.

----------Morwellham Quay - UNESCO World Heritage Site

Ten miles north of Plymouth is Morwellham Quay, the largest Copper mine in Victoria’s Empire. It’s a terrific day out, the absolute highlight being the train trip down into the mine itself, a heart-stopping insight into the life of a miner working by candllelight underground, 150 years ago, in tunnels prone to flooding. You can also try on Victorian costumes, see how the Copper Ore was shipped from the Quay downstream in sailing ships. Visit beautifully recreated shops, village, Blacksmiths, Coopers and the Farm and Musuem used in filming BBC’s Edwardian Farm.

-------Dartmouth History, River Cruises and Steam train

Spend a day in Dartmouth (40 minutes drive away) soaking up the atmosphere in one of the most beautiful and historic harbours in Europe. Dartmouth was the sailing point for the Crusades of 1147 and 1190,

was home of the Royal Navy from the reign of Edward III, was twice attacked during the Hundred Years' War, after which the mouth of the estuary was closed every night with a great chain. The narrow mouth of the Dart is still protected by two fortified castles, Dartmouth Castle and Kingswear Castle. During medieval times it became a major base for privateering (licensed piracy).

The pilgrim fathers rested a while in Dartmouth before setting off on their journey in the Mayflower and the Speedwell on 20 August 1620. After 300 miles they realised that the Speedwell was unseaworthy and returned to Plymouth before Mayflower then set off alone. The town has also played a part in defeating both the Spanish Armada and (rather later) Germany in WWII when it was the key launching point for the D-Day landings on Utah Beach.

The town itself has beautiful Medieval and Elizabethan architecture and is also the base for many fascinating river cruises and a steam train which runs up the coast. There are many events and festivals through the year including the Regatta, Dartmouth Music Festival, Food Festival, Open Air Shakespeare at Dartmouth Castle and much more.

-------South West Coast Path

Why not enjoy the stunning scenery and explore the famous South West Coast Path which passes through the village and runs East, crossing the River Avon on the small ferry and continuing towards Hope Cove, Bolt Tail and Salcombe and to the West across the Rivers Erme and Yealm towards Plymouth. Our favourite is to walk along the coast to the secluded and beautiful Ayrmer Cove and then inland on the old Smugglers path to the thirteenth Century Journeys End pub / restaurant at Ringmore for a great lunch or dinner cooked by the former chef at the Burgh Island Hotel.

-------South Devon Steam Railway, Butterfly Farm and Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary

The historic town of Totnes is forty minutes drive from the house and from there one can take the scenic steam train along the Dart valley to Buckfastleigh, where, next to the station, you can see new Butterflies emerging in tropical surroundings and watch Otters rescued from Dartmoor and enjoy their antics at feeding time.

Its also worth visiting by car, You can board their luxury dining train, the Devonshire Pullman, for a wonderful and nostalgic experience in first class, as you enjoy a delicious meal, freshly prepared by their own chef who sources local Devon produce wherever possible. Its a 2 ½ hour trip to Totnes and back along the beautiful Dart Valley. Buckfast Abbey is nearby and worth a visit, a Benedictine Monastery founded in 1018 under the rule of King Canute.

-------Dartmoor Hawking

The sight of a falcon diving down towards earth at over 100mph is one of life’s exhilarating experiences. Having a hawk stand on your fist, tearing at its food, is a rare privilege. One of Britain’s few private falconry centres, Dartmoor Hawking is in the heart of Dartmoor National Park, with some of the most dramatic scenery in the country. With 35 acres, the school has space to allow clients to see these magnificent birds flying at their best. Their four hour, private, Falconry Experience provides an exciting introduction to these birds of prey.
