Beautiful Cottage in Beautiful Bigbury on Sea
This cottage is one of the most lovely we have stayed in. The bathrooms and kitchen are immaculate. Beds and linen clean, crisp and fresh. Good sized rooms and storage. The kitchen contains everything you could possibly need, same to be said for the utility room if you want to keep on top of the washing etc. Everything you need is all there, home from home but with glorious views across the Avon and sea.
The area is good for walking with the dog following the public paths, fields and along the estuary.
