1 Lower Sandbanks is an exceptional and delightful, small but very smart property offering the luxury of modern living just minutes from some of the most beautiful beaches and magnificent coastal footpaths in England. Tucked in the centre of the village of Bigbury on Sea, down a quiet residential lane, this ultra contemporary ground floor, all on one level, apartment (one of six) has been recently completed, is architect designed to a high specification and enjoys its own cedar decked terrace and parking. From here the wide expanses of glorious sandy beach, magnificent views from fabulous cliff top walks, the causeway formed at low tide leading to Burgh Island, watersports such as surfing, kayaking, kite surfing and swimming can all be enjoyed from this attractive apartment in the seaside village of Bigbury on Sea.

Entrance through double glazed patio doors into a most attractive, comfortable living room, well furnished with pale solid oak flooring, recessed lighting, two sofas, flat screen TV with DVD and stereo radio/CD player. The room extends into a dining and kitchen area , fitted to the highest quality with a raised dining table, four stools and a superb range of kitchen units with electric ceramic hob with extractor over, built-under oven, integral washer/dryer, large fridge and freezer, dishwasher and microwave. Off the living room is a double bedroom (4ft 6in bed), with French doors to the deck area, a twin bedroom (3ft beds) that is separated from the living room by a large smoked sliding glass door. The shower room is spacious, of the best quality and has a large shower enclosure, basin and WC.

The property faces a quiet village lane with glimpses of Burgh island and the sea. There is a parking place for one car alongside the enclosed, part covered, deck area, provided with outdoor furniture and is an ideal spot for al fresco meals.

Very enjoyable stay

January 2019

We enjoyed our short stay the welcoming gift of wine and chocolates was very much appreciated and the delivery of the Times daily was a bonus.

January 2019

Can't wait to revisit perfect holiday stay

September 2018

Yes we did enjoy our stay!

July 2018

One of the best properties we have ever stayed in - small but perfectly formed, and had virtually everything once could wish for.

July 2018

Second time stay - lovely location, brilliant weather. Great place to come and visit.

July 2018

We had a wonderful week. Loved the cream tea supplied on arrival. Very well equipped and good location.

June 2018

We enjoyed our stay. Lovely beach to explore with the added interest of Burgh island nearby. Great place to have a go at surfing - we had some waves. Bigbury on Sea was quieter than we imagined and a little more off the beaten track. We got used to the single track winding road - although hoped not to meet anything too big coming in the opposite direction - but soon found out that was Devon!

May 2018

Great location and apartment, wonderful scenery, beautiful countryside and had lovely weather too!

May 2018

Very enjoyable stay in a lovely property. We should perhaps have researched the area more thoroughly as would have liked a local pub/restaurant to walk to some evenings!

October 2017

A lovely week's break thank you

October 2017

A most enjoyable stay wonderful location and standard of accommodation Thank you

August 2017

Yes, this is a very well equipt appartment in a great location. The afternoon tea was a nice touch.

July 2017

We had a lovely stay. The property is well equipped with a good sized walk in shower. It was clean & just a short walk from the beach. There was milk in the fridge on our arrival & also some scones, jam & clotted cream waiting for us which was a nice treat after a long journey. The weather was warm & we only had one wet day so this made our stay even better. We would definitely come back to this property again.

June 2017

Had a lovely time and would happily stay here again. The lack of a mobile phone signal is the only issue

June 2017

Superb property which was very comfortable and well equipped, and would definitely stay again.

May 2017

One of the most enjoyable holidays ever. Walking and eating out extremely enjoyable. Having said that because of the excellent facilities we self catered a lot. Everything being equal we would not hesitate to have future holidays at 1 Lower Sandbanks.

May 2017

Main bedroom wardrobe did not fit with the room size and made movement in the room very tight, could do with a toast rack. Really disappointed with the lack of facilities with South Hams District Council, no provisions were made for the recycling of plastic bottles and cans.

Thank you for your feedback which we will pass on to the owners. SHDC have home collection for recycling plastics on a fortnightly basis according to the property owner's bin arrangements. There are also recycling banks in Aveton Gifford which is on a convenient route from the property and two in Kingsbridge area, we will ensure these are detailed within the property. We thank you however for your care in recycling and do hope that you enjoyed your stay.

Quite simply FANTASTIC ! Thought long and hard about writing this review. It is SO good i don't want others to realise and keep it as our secret, but in the interests of fairness here goes ! A real home from home, with lovely touches from the owners to welcome us with some local jam and clotted cream and scones. The apartment is everything you need, compact, but kitted out with all you could possibly need with nice contemporary fittings and a great shower ! Been to Bigbury regularly before but this is the only place we have returned to and will continue to do so. Handy for the beach. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday for all the family. Thank you to the owners who have a real gem on their hands here.

August 2014

Our only disappointment was the only local shop had shut down, meaning a drive to buy milk etc.

<p>Thanks so much for your review. We are delighted to say, the fabulously well stocked village shop at St Annes Chapel will now deliver groceries/milk, etc and newspapers - on a daily basis - &nbsp;to all of the properties in Bigbury on Sea which will hopefully make for much more convenience. Even freshly baked bread &amp; pasties! There is also a shop 400 metres away in Challaborough bay. We look forward to welcoming you again to one of our properties soon. &nbsp;</p>

We had a brilliant week - a fantastic apartment such a short hop from the beach, with gorgeous views across to the island. There were even homemade scones, clotted cream and jam waiting for us on our arrival! Great service, we'll definitely come again.
