Fantastic place to stay, with lovely welcome touches, including champagne, chocolates and flowers in the rooms. Fantastic view out to sea and Burgh Island. The pool and cafe are excellent with really friendly helpful staff. Great large TV and wifi keeps all happy and parking a doddle. All in all highly recommended.

Having spent some 30 years travelling to France to get away from rip off Britain and used to paying around £450 a week for a lovely three bedroomed gite my wife wanted to visit Devon for two weeks and put her feet up instead of driving large distances from Norfolk.
On arriving there was a box of chocolates and a bottle of fizzy and the rooms were clean with an amazing modern shower room plus all the modern gadgets in the apartment and fresh flowers in the rooms.
My son found his room very comfortable and our bed was slightly on the soft side but no problem for the two weeks we stayed there.
My wife settled down and was busy reading her books looking across the sea to the island and teenage son joined the local surfboard classes just a few hundred feet away. I came down later and had fun parking my motorcycle as Chelsea Tractors were parking so close I could not get to the centre stand to move the bike on the left hand side. Tried moving it into a corner by the covered garaging for Island tourists but again blocked in . Very annoying when you want to ride off and tour Dartmoor.
The staff running the apartments were very helpful and courteous, the pool was clean and perfect for children when the weather was bad. The restaurant just up the hill served some delicious cod in the evening but book early in the peak summer period to get in.
A great place to stay for visiting the local NT's around the area but beware of the congestion every day getting to Bigbury down the narrow lanes in the summer holidays.
We would leave early before the surfers started to come in and return late in the evening when most of the day trippers went back.
The only thing that annoyed us was every time you went past the bathroom the PIR sensor turned on the bathroom lights and the extractor fan. Wanted to get out my wire cutters?
A great place to stay but at English prices we will properly visit Europe again. We did get a good deal for two weeks through Helpful Holidays who were the best booking company I have come across in many years. Brilliant company who will run around for you.
We did meet the owners who brought in fresh towels after the first week and do live locally so that you can get help if needed.
So a lovely 5 star apartment with a fantastic view but you will pay for this luxury.
