Great stay with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

The garden (beautifully maintained) and views from this wonderful property are spectacular. I could have spent my whole week just sitting there watching the sea. The house was perfect for our multi-generational group of 8. We ranged in age from 19 to 88 and everyone was happy. The amount of bedrooms and bathrooms afforded everyone their privacy while the open living area was conducive to quality time together. The kitchen and bathrooms are very modern and attractive. There are plenty of dishes for a large group and the kitchen is well-stocked with a large assortment of pots/pans/utensils, etc. The washer and dryer was a real plus for us, especially when two members of the party had missing suitcases for 3 days. Mike was great with communication with us, always responded very promptly to emails. Would definitely rent this property again if we went back to this area!

Outstanding weekend, can't wait to return

  • 5 of 5

I can totally recommend Seaview House for absolute comfort and amazing ocean views. We stayed at this beautiful house in Bigbury on Sea with some friends as a 50th birthday treat. We couldn't have asked for more. The owners were helpful and friendly from start of booking to end of stay.......Allan even came to pick us up in Modbury when my car broke down. On arrival both Maggie and Allan took time to show us around the house and answered the many questions we had to ask about the house and the design/decode (which they had done themselves with exquisite taste). The bedrooms are warm and so comfortable, the kitchen and bathrooms have everything you need and more. My daughter slept in the self contained annex and now wants Maggie and Allan to adopt her so she can live there. I warn you both that she is more trouble than she looks! Thank you both so much for a perfect weekend. After years of weekend breaks in various cold and crooked cottages, we don't want to go anywhere else now! See you in Feb 2015 if not before!

This house deserves 6 stars! Amazing house, lovely gardens, fabulous views. Best equipped house we have ever had. Extended family loved it and did not want to leave. Allan & Maggie have made a bit of paradise for us to share. Bigbury on sea is ideal for children a with lovely beaches, not much to do in the village, but the house more than compensates, grab a glass of wine and just enjoy the beautiful views from the garden and house.

An outstanding property in every way

  • 5 of 5

This property is every bit as good as the photographs show. The L shaped kitchen dining living area is huge, modern and very well equipped and the view of the bay from the floor to ceiling windows surrounding the long dining table is so amazing that we spent most of our 4 day break there when we were not out and hardly used the excellent living area that has SKY DVD player stereo etc. Bedrooms and bathrooms are first class like the rest of the house and everything was perfectly clean and tidy. The weather was mostly sunny but very windy but enabled us to make use of the fantastic garden overlooking the bay. Allan and Maggie were very welcoming and we were delighted to receive a welcome pack including a substantial cream tea for just a 4 day visit. Bigbury on Sea is lovely and we had two very nice meals in the Cafe at the bottom of the road. A much enjoyed short stay by a family of 8 (4 couples).

Amazing Seaview

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic time at Seaview. It all started with a delicious Devon tea left as a welcome from the owners. The views from the gardens and house, especially the dining room are quite simply stunning. The house is extremely comfortable and well and thoughtfully equipped, a real home from home. We made good use of the coffee machine and after dinner the home cinema was a big hit with all. We were lucky with the weather and took advantage of one of the two garden BBQs and also visited local restaurants suggested by the owners, The Royal Oak in Bigsbury (Gastro style) and the Bay View Bistro at the bottom of the hill was good for simple but well cooked food.

Bigbury on Sea lives up to its beauty spot reputation, a trip on the sea tractor over to Burgh island and a walk to the top is an absolute must as is a pint of Pilchard in the Pilchard Inn. On return to the house sit with a cool drink and look out over your achievements !

In short we were a party of 6 with vast age ranges up to 84 and all would highly recommend a stay at Seaview!
