Lovely place to stay it’s on a steep hill so if you’re not so fit you would need a car to and from the beach..

The position of Quarterdeck is something really special.. The garden that wraps all around the property gives the feeling of privacy and seclusion. I think it is the best property in Bigbury-on-Sea form which to watch the sunset. A real rare find and I was so happy to celebrate my 30th birthday in this unique location with my family. I will definitely be booking this property again.

The views are amazing & the cottage is extremely clean.. The shower is powerful & having a separate toilet was great. Will stay again :)

Very nice cottage in a lovely location, close to the sea with great views of the bay and Burgh island.. A tumble dryer would be useful, other than that the cottage has everything needed.

Quarterdeck was a real home from home.. From the moment we arrived, with a welcoming bottle of wine and shortbread biscuits, to the very well furnished and equipped home. Despite inclement weather we walked from the cottage each day with our dog, who lived the nearby beaches. An excellent week!

I would have no hesitation in recommending Quarterdeck.. The owners have endeavoured to equip the house with everything you need for for a comfortable stay. It also had a modern bathroom, useful large utility room, cosy log burning stove and stunning views. Perfectly located for the beach and for the wonderful coastal walks-we will definitely be back.

Quarterdeck is a lovely bungalow with fantastic views.. Large garden. Peaceful, Spotlessly clean, although I did have to wash a couple of windows down to see the lovely view properly. We must have caught it wrong for the window cleaner. It’s a beautiful area and the bungalow had most things that we needed. The utility room was really good to put coats and dog food etc. Surprisingly, there is only one toilet, which is separate from the bathroom, with no hand basin so we feel that it would be very difficult for 5 people staying there. The shower is in the bath so not easy for older people to climb in and out. We have been to many Sykes cottages and we do feel, although a nice place with spectacular views, that at nearly £900 (and considering my comments) that it was expensive for the first week in May. Two other bungalows a bit nearer to the beach were £200 cheaper that week. The WiFi is almost non existent . , not the owners fault but I thought I ought to mention it. The lanes are very steep for anyone with mobility issues.

Quarterdeck has a lovely position with brilliant sea views.. However it is in need of some TCL looks very tired in certain areas. Kitchen area not brilliant needs good spruce up looking very tired and the extractor fan is very dated and grubby. Tiles and edges need regrouting or replacing. Bathroom has been updated and is good, lots of hot water could do with a non slip bath mat, towels are rather on the small side. Bedroom needs decorating but bed and linens were lovely very comfy bed. Extension on side was very useful especially for drying off our doggies after their swim. Garden area was lovely and enjoyed sitting and enjoying the views. Cottage was comfortable overall just needs a uplift.

Fabulous bungalow with amazing views.. Very comfortable, cosy and well equipped. Lots of hot water. Great utility area for sandy beach bits. Loved playing croquet.

We've just had a glorious October half-term at Quarterdeck.. Toasty warm, the cottage feels homely and snug, and the cosy living-room really does have AMAZING views. Bedrooms were clean, the beds comfortable, and the cottage equipped with everything we needed. We loved exploring this area and will DEFINITELY be back to Quarterdeck.

We had a most enjoyable stay at Quarterdeck in a delightful area that we last stayed in nearly 20 years ago.. We found the bungalow offered every possible comfort and amenity that we could have asked for and was lovely and clean. The beds were extremely comfortable which resulted in a good nights sleep, something that we don't always get away from home The standard and cleanliness of the linen were far higher than most cottages we have stayed in and of the quality normally associated with top hotels. The view along the coast from the living room was one we will always remember to enjoy the spectacular sunsets. It was all the thoughtful extras provided by the owners that helped make the holiday, most comfortable outdoor chairs/loungers to enjoy the beautiful private garden, croquet, plenty of games as well as boards and a windbreak for the beach. Due to the location we only used the car once during our stay with superb coastal and estuary walks as well as the iconic Burgh Island to explore. A wonderful stay in a most comfortable property that we can highly recommend.

A lovely cottage with a fabulous garden and view.. Bigbury is a nice traditional seaside village with a lovely beach and Island. Excellent Kayaking!
Mr Timber

Quarterdeck's location was perfect with magical views from the lounge windows of the Coastline and Burgh Island, we saw fantastic sunsets every night.. The garden offers sun and shade and sun chairs for comfort. The property had surf boards to take down to the beach and a wind break. We were very lucky to have wall to wall sunshine all week. We enjoyed walking along the beach and on the way back stopping off for a drink at the Pilchard inn. Apart from a day out to Salcombe we stayed in Bigbury-on-sea all week. Had a very good meal at the White Hart in Modbury and lovely Fish and chips at Fryer Tucks in Challaborough. Thank you for a great holiday in Devon.

Quarterdeck is in a fantastic location with amazing views for a family beach or walking holiday.. Loved sitting with a real fire watching the waves crashing on the rocks below at the end of the day , lovely relaxing holiday
Mrs Grant

We wanted a property with a sea view and we certainly got that.. Excellent location just up from the beach and just meters from the coast path.

Quarterdeck is a very clean and comfortable property, set in a wonderful location with magnificent views. Close to beach and coastal path. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and have already booked to return in November.
Mrs Dunk

We had a lovely relaxing family break. The view from the house was stunning and we saw some beautiful sunsets. The short walk to a lovely beach was perfect for the children. The house was clean and had everything that we needed for our break. We felt very happy and comfortable.
Mrs Moore

The location of the holiday home was perfect. Such beautiful views, beaches and walks around the area. The owners have left lots of information about the area and things to do. We really didn't want to leave as the holiday was so relaxing. Walking down to the beach with a nice trip to the Pilchard Inn en route, perfect for those evening strolls
Mr Hopkins

Enjoyed the views from the windows and the position of the property. We also thought that the owners had gone to a lot of effort to make everything in the cottage easy to find and/or work out, which we appreciated.
