Gill is an exemplary host. She has an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of the area and a genuine determination for all her guests to have a most memorable and pleasant stay. Nothing is too much trouble for her. The apartment is spotlessly clean and the view from the terrace over Bigbury Bay is a stunning, ever-changing delight. Burgh Island itself, the hotel and the Pilchard Inn are really intriguing places to explore, full of history and character. We knew little of the South Hams area before our stay but will certainly re-visit. Particular highlights were : a boat trip from Dartmouth up to Greenways, Agatha Christie's summer residence ; Salcombe; Slapton Sands ; and a drive over brooding Dartmoor to Princetown. The Oyster Shack , recommended by Gill, was the highlight of our eating out: £16 for three delightful courses in such a relaxing, informal setting. You will definitely need to book. The apartment would be ideal for all types of visitors. You are a stone's throw from Bigbury beach; the walks in the area, particularly that section of the South West Coastal path are as enjoyable as any we have undertaken in Cornwall; local food and drink ( particularly the Real Ale ) are exceptional. 100% recommended.

Decoration and furnishing are of a very high standard and the village is very peaceful. Would definitely recommend this as a place to stay.

Beautifully furnished throughout with all the mod-cons. Excellently positioned to explore all the south-hams area has to offer. Can link to public footpaths easily for local walks and bantham beach was only a short stroll away. Will definitely be returning to enjoy the property in sunnier climates!
