The information provided in advance by the owner was comprehensive and detailed, probably the most thorough we have ever had and replies to my eMails were quick and positive. The apartment enjoys a superb and peaceful location and, being on a hill above the village, provides wonderful views of the bay and countryside (from the lounge) and Burgh Island and the rocky coast (from the bathroom). The large lounge has huge windows on 2 sides so is very light and, when sunny, warms up without the need for heating. In fact the whole apartment was comfortably warm and we didn’t need to switch the heating on before it came on automatically at 5.30pm. It then warmed up very quickly and retained that warmth all evening. The large, modern TV is very nice and the WiFi worked well with only an occasional signal drop. The kitchen is a good size with plenty of worktop space and all the equipment and utensils that one could possibly want. There is also a nice view of the bay so one has an interesting outlook while doing the washing up. The main bedroom is quite large with a comfortable bed and masses of wardrobe space. The other bedroom, however, is rather small. For a family of 4 the fact that there are 2 bathrooms would be useful. The property was clean and well maintained. The village centre is only 8 minutes away by road or even less if one takes the shortcut across the lawn and adjacent field. There one finds the village shop and Post Office and the Thurlestone Hotel and attached Village Inn. We had excellent, though expensive, meals at both. The surrounding area is very attractive and we enjoyed walking the coastal path in both directions. Hope Cove and Burgh Island are both worth a visit; at this time of year, when the little ferry across the Avon is not running, the island can be reached only by crossing the river some miles inland and then walking across the sand bar from Bigbury-on-Sea when the tide is out. In fact we did it as part of a very pleasant round walk starting from the National Trust car park at Ayrmer Cove near Ringmore. Kingsbridge, to which we went by bus, is a pleasant little town and we whiled away 2 interesting hours following the historical Town Trail. We then had an excellent lunch at the busy Mangetout café. Given the superb accommodation and the beautiful area, we would recommend this property without hesitation.
