Once a sleepy fishing village, Bigbury-on-Sea is one of South Devon's most iconic seaside holiday destinations. Bigbury Beach is South Devon's largest sandy beach and offers a wide variety of watersports from surfing to kayaking and the bay is the perfect place for you to try something new. While Bigbury Beach operates a seasonal dog ban, there are many smaller beaches just a short walk along the South West Coast Path. These beaches are well worth a visit, with the walk offering stunning views and the beaches attracting seals and dolphins.

That's why we specialise in dog-friendly cottages in Bigbury-on-Sea and across the UK. Whether you're looking for a romantic getaway or a family adventure, we have something to suit all tastes.
Bigbury-on-Sea is the perfect location for hiking and watersports, making it a great spot for active holiday-goers and their pups. Visit Burgh Island, a tidal island renowned for its birds, wildlife and interesting walks, with a 'sea tractor' that makes the crossing when the causeway is flooded by the tide.
