Property Description

Nestling in a secluded sunny lawned garden with views of the sea and Burgh Island, Seadrift is comfortably furnished in modern style. Within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Bigbury-on-Sea boasts a fine sweep of golden sand – ideal for both children and surfers.
The holiday location makes it a superb base from which to explore the many and varied attractions of South Devon. Nearby Thurlestone stands as a pretty ‘chocolate-box’ village, with its pink-washed thatched cottages and unspoilt sandy beach framed by rolling farmland. The busy market town of Kingsbridge with its fine Tudor and Georgian buildings acts as the ‘capital’ of the South Hams region, and serves as the hub of local transport services to the surrounding villages. During the summer months, a ferry runs from here to Devon’s most southerly resort of Salcombe, once a former fishing village and now a major sailing resort thronging with visitors. A few miles south of Salcombe at Sharpitor, the National Trust oversees the elegant Edwardian house of Otto Overbeck, a scientist whose varied collection of items is on display to the public. Overlooking the Salcombe estuary, the beautiful garden of Overbecks enjoys fine views and is home to a selection of rare plants, trees and shrubs growing within its warm microclimate.
In the opposite direction lies Plymouth, with its many naval and seafaring connections. Rebuilt after the Second World War, it stands as a complex mixture of modern day facilities and attractions with strong roots in history – the Barbican area around Sutton Harbour retaining many links. The Elizabethan House found here is furnished as it would have been in the time of Sir Francis Drake (who set out from Plymouth to circumnavigate the world), and the Island House is another place of note – believed to have been where the Pilgrim Fathers lodged before setting sail for America. From Plymouth, river and fishing trips can be arranged and there are sailing and windsurfing schools. Shop in Bigbury.
