About the Owner

we have lived at Red Gables for 20 years which was originally a sea side chalet on the cliff. The annex is adjacent to our house which was built originally for my parents. We are very much part of the local village community and appreciate our surroundings, my son is a local surfer, and we all love the sea and the beautiful walks especially our dog.

Great location for coastal path walkers

  • 4 of 5

We were made to feel very welcome by the hosts and the property is in a perfect location for walking on the coastal path.

We would recommend to other walkers as there is a bus from Wembury to Plymouth at 9.30 am making it a great walking day back to the accommodation.

Very clean and comfortable - just what we needed.

Great location and comfortable annex

  • 4 of 5

Awesome location for this holiday home - right on the coastal path - with lots of lovely walking in the area. The Annexe is well furnished, clean and comfortable (especially the bed!) Perfect couples retreat and great base for exploring the local area with your OS map. A car is a must for getting out and about further afield and Plymouth is only a 20 minute drive away.

We stayed here for a long weekend, with our little dog and what a superb, good value, place to stay. Debbie and Steven were very friendly and made us very welcome.....

The accommodation was exactly as described, having everything we needed, tv, books, maps, local info, games, DVDs and a PlayStation and games also a very welcome packet of choccie biscuits!!!!...

The bed was soooo comfie, we slept like babies, and the feather pillows, duvet and crisp bedding, were such a treat.

The location is perfect, 5 mins to a pretty beach ( with toilets and ramps) with great rock pools to explore. The beach is dog free over the summer months, although there are other bays to walk to which aren't..Really stunning scenic walks along the coastal path in both directions. The little coffee shop on the beach did delicious cream teas, coffees and pastries, definitely worth a visit. The area is owned by the national trust and very unspoilt.

There is a great pub up the road called The Odd Wheel, which did very nice meals, also dog friendly if not too busy....

We would definitely recommend staying here, and we are looking forward to a return visit!!!

Coastal Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Great holiday cottage which opens out onto a beautiful coastal path, ideal for walking the dog and enjoying the sea views. Position is close to Plymouth and lovely beach at Bigbury on Sea.

Local pub, The Odd Wheel is within 15 minutes walking distance and serves good food and also dog friendly.

Cottage had everything we required and owners were great, very helpful and friendly.

Couldn't ask for more for our honeymoon.
