Overcombe

Bigbury On Sea, DevonSleeps: 10Bedrooms: 5Bathroooms: 5

Home > Our Properties > Overcombe
Savour spectacular sea views and incredible sunsets over a sweeping expanse of the South Devon coastline.

Commanding the best views over Bigbury-on-Sea, Bantham and Burgh Island, Overcombe is an incredibly popular holiday home in the South Hams. It’s a fantastic base for visiting the beautiful towns of Salcombe, Dartmouth, Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo, as well as exploring the spectacular surrounding beaches. 

With a sweeping decking and terrace wrapping around most of the property, Overcombe is an awe-inspiring retreat. Set across one floor, it’s excellent for all generations of the family, and makes an unforgettable back drop for reunions and celebrations. 

There are five beautiful bedrooms with en-suite wet rooms, which each look out across either the sprawling coastline or rolling countryside. Bedrooms one and two open straight onto the expansive terrace, so guests can wake early, step outside and savour their morning cup of tea with a view across the ocean. 
 

Finished to the highest specification, Overcombe is equipped with the latest audio-visual technology, including a Sonos music system in the main living areas.

An entertaining hideaway for rainy days, the separate games room is stocked with a pool table, football table and exercise bike with a TV screen. 

The open plan kitchen and dining area features plate glass on three sides. The perfect spot for hosting dinner parties, the sensational panoramic view really steals the show. And when the weather takes a turn and storms batter the coastline, curl up beside the wood burner in the TV room and listen to the sound of the rain outside. 
 

  • Uninterrupted ocean views
  • Five en-suite bedrooms
  • Separate games room
  • Wraparound terrace
  • Accessible layout
  • Above the beach

Our favourite features

Right at the edge of the wraparound terrace is a circular seating area; surrounded by an expanse of ocean, it’s the best place to watch the sunset with a drink in hand.

More about theGround Floor

Open Plan Kitchen, Dining and Living Area

The open plan living area is the pinnacle of the property. Surrounded by jaw-dropping vistas, find yourself immersed in the views across the ocean and valleys. The entire space can be opened up by using the soft-sliding doors leading onto the decking, with Sonos speakers throughout. 

Kitchen

Sleek white gloss units complement the walls of glass in the kitchen, which is well-equipped with all Neff appliances: two ovens, a grill, double fridge-freezer with ice maker, dishwasher and induction hob. A stunning yet practical space for hosting dinner parties, you’ll love the open and sociable feel. 

Please note: guests with pacemakers should avoid using the induction hob as this can interfere with the device. 

Dining and Living Area

There are just a couple of small steps leading from the kitchen into the dining area. An elegant glass dining table seats up to ten guests. Gather together as the sun sets each evening and tuck into hearty feasts you’ll always remember. After dinner, relax on the enormous L-shaped corner sofa and enjoy a coffee from the Nespresso coffee machine in front of the far-reaching views. 

TV Room

The cosy and welcoming TV room is a great place to curl up beside the wood burner and enjoy family films on the enormous 60 inch Sharp TV, complete with full Sky HD, Blu-Ray player and PlayStation 4. You can also access the sweeping terrace and decking through the three sliding doors.

A sumptuous super king size bed is bathed in estuary views from the bay window. With a spacious en-suite and wet-room style rainfall shower, this bedroom also enjoys direct access onto the terrace. 

Bedroom Two with En-suite

Bedroom Two also features lovely views over the Avon Estuary and out across Bantham. A luxurious king size bed is positioned adjacent to the sliding patio doors, which leads onto the terrace. On clear nights, watch shooting stars light up the sky as the balmy sea breeze fills the room. 

Bedroom Three with En-suite

A bright and airy twin bedroom with tranquil views across the rolling countryside, this room is complete with built-in wardrobes and an en-suite wet room. 

Bedroom Four with En-suite

Bedroom four is another spacious king size room with country views and a stylish wet room-style en-suite. Large built-in wardrobes provide plenty of storage.

Bedroom five benefits from a sumptuous zip and link bed, providing the flexible option to have this room as a super king or twins. The large en-suite has a rainfall shower over a deep bathtub – perfect for relaxing after a long day exploring the coast path. There is one step down into this en-suite.

Bigbury On Sea

Beaches and watersports

The prestigious Blue Flag beach of Bigbury-on-Sea is perfect for families. Joined by a causeway to the iconic Burgh Island, the chance to cross the beach on the world’s only sea tractor is not to be missed. Other beautiful sandy beaches in the area include Bantham, Thurlestone, South Milton and the pretty Hope Cove, while decent swells at the nearby Challabrough and Mothercombe make both perfect for surfing.

Outdoor pursuits

Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are several gorgeous walks surrounding Bigbury-on-Sea. Follow the coast path along the Avon Estuary towards Aveton Gifford before crossing the bridge and returning towards Bantham or venture a little further out to Blackdown Rings. Pick up the golf clubs and visit the immaculate courses at Bigbury, Thurlstone or Dartmouth. Alternatively, take a day trip to Start Bay and experience the biggest and most accessible fishing beach in South Devon.

Food and drink

Take a step back in time with the famous art deco Burgh Island Hotel, hosting black tie dinners every evening. For exceptional seafood, head to The Oyster Shack and relax on the terrace with a refreshing drink. The Pilchard Inn and The Journey’s End Inn both offer a great spot for a pint of local ale, while a little further afield in Dartmouth sits the wonderful Seahorse Restaurant, owned by Mitch Tonks. For a light lunch, head to Venus Café on Bigbury beach for a much needed energy boost in between exploring South Devon's waters. 

Time for pampering

For a day of rest and relaxation, The Voyage Spa at The Thurlestone Hotel in Kingsbridge is a must visit. One of the finest spas in South Devon, it offers sweeping sea views and a great range of health and beauty treatments, alongside an indoor pool, steam room and sauna. If a day trip is on the cards, head to Dartmouth or Salcombe and be tempted by treatments at the fantastic Dart Marina and Salcombe Harbour spas by the water. Whatever you choose, you're sure to leave feeling replenished and renewed. 

Activities for children

When the kids have tired from endless days on the beach, jump in the car and head to Dartmoor Zoo, Woodlands Adventure Park or the River Dart Country Park – where zip wires, assault courses and watersports await. Animal lovers will enjoy a day out at Totnes Rare Breeds Farm, while the South Devon Chilli Farm promises fun for the whole family, less than half an hour’s drive away. Venture slightly further afield for a unique day out at the Mystery Treasure Trail in Kingsbridge, promising bundles of fun come rain or shine.

Thank you for the most amazing time at Overcombe. The house and view are truly incredible. We have loved our time here on our family holiday and cannot wait to return - it's one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed.

The Bale Family, Chard - March 2018

What can I say? We have never stayed in such a beautifully designed house with such magnificent views. A wonderful place to celebrate a 70th and a first birthday. We've hardly ventured out as nowhere else compared with the views and the quiet - just sheep and the sea. The weather has been incredibly kind. Would definitely love to return.

The Phillips Family, London - April 2018

An amazing stay in a stunning location with accommodation that outdid everyone's expectations. Beautiful location with so many walks from the front door. Thanks for a wonderful venue for a special 40th birthday. We couldn't have asked for more.

The Lewis Family, Cardiff - March 2019

Wow! What a great property, outstanding views, great location - perfect for long walks with our furry friend. We varied in ages from 24-81 and everyone enjoyed their stay, lovely to all be together for a 50th birthday celebration in one place. We ventured to The Pilchard Inn and The Oyster Shack - what a fab place. Thank you Overcombe.

The Jones Family, Radstock - March 2019

We've spent the last few years' holidays at a beautiful house in France, but decided to stay in the UK this year. Overcombe is a beauty and the views unmatched. We won't be going back to France now we've found this wonderful place. Within four hours of arriving, we already booked in for two weeks again next year. Simply amazing. Thank you to the owners for sharing 'God's little acre' with us. So beautiful!

The Pangels Family, London - June 2019

What an amazing stay. Bantham and Bigbury are just beautiful and my favourite places. Having grown up not far from here and spending many weekends on the beaches, there was only one place I wanted to celebrate my 40th birthday! Overcombe is an absolutely beautiful house. It has been such a special weekend. My son does not want to leave! Hopefully we will be back…soon!
