Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Bantham - Sherriffs

Apartment and garden with sea and river views 3 bedrooms

Bantham is situated at the mouth of the River Avon in Bigbury Bay and has one of the best surfing beaches on the South Coast only a few minutes walk from Sheriffs.

In 2015 The Lonely Planet Guide listed the best 10 beaches in Europe. Bantham was the only one in the UK!!

Children find it has perfect 'sandcastle' golden sand. Hours of enjoyment can be had at low tide in the many rock-pools that are revealed. Full time Lifeguards are on duty from May to September.

The area has a lot to offer. Two Golf Courses nearby are Thurlestone (1 mile) and Bigbury (7 miles)

The boating folk will love the estuary. Bantham Quay is only 5 minutes walk from Sherriffs and fishing can be enjoyed in the river and at sea.

The pretty village has the well known Sloop Inn with its good restaurant (booking advisable), a village shop with river view cafe during May to September and school half term holidays. Refreshments are also available close to the beach for that 'after swim and surfing' reviver.

There are wonderful walks along the coastal footpath, east to Thurlestone, Hope Cove, Salcombe and beyond, and west using the ferry over the Avon (operating from May to September every day except Sunday).

Kingsbridge, Salcombe, Dartmouth and Totnes are within easy reach and offer a great variety of shops and attractions.

The property is a ground floor apartment with a sizeable garden. There are 3 Bedrooms. One double room with French door to the patio overlooking the river. One Twin bedded room with a basin and en-suite shower and an additional pull-out bed and a third bedroom with one single bed and two bunks.

There is a family bathroom with a shower over the bath, basin and toilet. There is also a separate toilet and basin.

The dining area is designed to seat 8 people and has a view over the garden to the river. The kitchen is separated from the dining area by a bar and has an electric cooker, dishwasher, large fridge, microwave, toaster and all the equipment that you would expect to find in a holiday home.

The dining area leads into the conservatory which looks out over the patio and garden to the river.

There are night store heaters throughout the apartment.

There is a separate laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer and a small chest freezer.

The patio is equipped with dining table and chairs for 8 people.

The garden has an extensive lawn and steps that lead down through the well maintained and attractive garden to a beautiful wide path that goes down to Bantham Quay.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Sheriffs. Bantham is a real paradise, the beach so peaceful and beautiful and the town so nice. The owners were extra helpful and nice and everything was just as promised. We would recommend Sheriffs to anyone

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very kind comments. You are right Bantham is a very special place. I have known the village for over 60 years and can truly say that virtually nothing has changed over that period. It is really unspoiled and there are very few place about which that can honestly be said. I know it must have been a great change from Iceland but I am delighted that your particular requirements were met.

Another great Golf Tour based on Sherriffs

  • 4 of 5

Sherriffs does precisely what it says on the box, and it really is the ideal base for both young and old to explore and enjoy the South Hams and beyond.

Our group of six golfers returned for yet another year, playing Thurlestone; Bigbury; St Mellion, and East Devon in our shirtsleeves.

The local pub (the 'Sloop') serves great food and the Village Stores can top-up most essentials. The Village Inn in Thurlestone has just been completely re-fitted to a very high standard, and for a complete contrast try 'The Beach House' on South Milton Sands for a memorable lunch or supper.

Can't recommend Sherriffs highly enough. We golfers have booked in for the same time next year!.

Perfect location and set up for a peaceful holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was not my first visit to the property and it was as pristine as ever. The set up with plenty of beds and bathrooms works really well. The Sloop opposite is exceedingly friendly with plenty of locals and other visitors. The food is first rate with lots of fish as you would expect. Bantham is a great base for family beach holidays, golf, or just sightseeing. Sitting on the terrace with a drink at the end the day can't be beaten, always something to see on the estuary or Bigbury Golf Course. Very highly recommended. Ps Also very comfortable beds too!

The perfect place for our golfing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Sherriffs is in an idyllic position, looking across the river estuary to Bigbury Golf Course. It is very well appointed with a superb conservatory where you can sit and simply watch the tide roll in and out, if that takes your fancy.

It is also ideally situated for visiting other local courses, such as Thurlestone, and those not so local, for instance the challenging Nicklaus Course at St Mellion. So that's we golfers well provided for, but there is a whole lot more going on.

A morning stroll round the Ham justifies the consumption of the full English breakfast at the Sloop Inn, only 50 yards away. The Sloop also serves as an ideal place to have dinner, ruling out all the usual problems over who is going to drive! The menu is interesting and varied. Landlord Rob will also supply a take-away service if you prefer to eat at the house.

For those with deep pockets a visit to the Treby Arms at Sparkford is a real thrill. Just forget about the cost and indulge yourself in MasterChef level cooking.

If fresh seafood is your thing, walk around to the Beach Hut at South Milton Sands for a lively experience of local produce.

For the surfers of this world the beach is not far away, with a Surfing Academy and Lifeguards on duty.

Burgh Island continues to hold a fascination for all who visit it. Dartmouth, Salcombe, Modbury and Kingsbbridge are all within a short drive and worth a visit. National Trust members will benefit from various Trust properties in the area.

If you it in all the things to see and do in the area in short holiday you will return exhausted, but happy. We certainly did, but could still play better golf!!

Sheriffs a Great position with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived the house was very clean and tidy and well equipped with linen and towels.

The toilets and washing facilities were clean and quite sufficient for 6 of us.

The garden was well tendered and nice to sit outside on sunny evenings which we had on every day. We spent most our time playing golf and the local courses are very attractive and welcoming and would suit all different handicaps. One of the great advantages of Sherrifs is that there is a very good Pub, The Sloop, which provides excellent food and drink within walking distance.

This is a property that I would recommend to families of all ages from toddlers with a lovely safe beach, to golfers and people who just want to relax.

A relaxing seaside village with riverside views

  • 5 of 5

A most relaxing holiday in a comfortable, clean, light and airy ground floor apartment with fabulous views.

We maintained and clean it felt welcoming and thoughtfully set up for us as new arrivals. It has a lovely conservatory where we sat looking out over the river and hills beyond basking in the warm sun. There is one good step up into the house from the main entrance but it is easy to enter via the conservatory where the step is shallow. The good sized garden is private and secure from the road and very child friendly with grass areas big enough for a good game of badminton or volleyball. We wanted for nothing as the house is so well equipped with everything you need for a family holiday from board games, books and TV to tumble dryer and a chest freezer. Garden furniture, seating area and a small BBQ make for easy entertaining and life outdoors.

The house is perfectly situated in the tiny village, a short walk to the river, river beach and lovely sandy main Bantham beach. Part of this beach is sheltered under cliffs with sandy rock pools, just right for small children to paddle. There is great swimming and surfing off the main beach with opportunities at surf school to learn to ride the waves safely, overseen by the lifeguards. We sampled the tasty food and drinks from the Gastrobus, in the beach carpark, making for an easy lunch while beach bound. The river gives an added dimension to staying here and at low tide, as the river drained the estuary, we walked up river from the main quay, with its collection of varied boats, to watched the herons and egrets in the heronry in the riverside woods. A small boat ferry has a timetabled service from the quay which can get you over the river to walk the coast path or, at low tide, along the river beach to Bigbury island.

We made use of the convenient village shop with its a café, where we took breakfast on its terrace overlooking the river. It’s also great for ice creams, emergency supplied and beach gear and only 100 yrds form the house. The Sloop, is a well-established village pub, where we were served good food by friendly staff on the evenings we took a holiday from cooking.

We were refreshed after an easy self-catering retreat with comfortable indoor living and a great outdoors to explore. A holiday destination to revisit with friends and family.
