Devon has long been a popular holiday destination for the British holiday-maker, and with so much to see and do in the county it’s hard to know where to begin when suggesting to someone some holiday ideas.One destination which springs to mind, is the picturesque seaside village of Bigbury Bay.

Bigbury has a village with all the usual amenities you would expect and is nestled close to the big city of Plymouth which is also worth a visit.

The main attraction of Bigbury is Burgh Island where Agatha Christie wrote many of her thriller detective novels, the island still welcomes visitors by sea tractor and along the sand bank when the tide is out. The island is also home to the thirteenth century ‘Pilchard Inn’ pub which has been serving fishermen, sailors and tourists for hundreds of years.

Bigbury has Bantham bay which is ideal for surfers and in the other direction is Challaborough Bay Bay which is more suited for families with a large static caravan park.

There are so many lovely walks around Bigbury, one of the better known walks is along the cliffs to Ringmore with the ancient Journeys End Inn- A real Devon shire Pub!
