Access Statement

Information about accessing the resort, the site, and Apartment 5.

Please note that the resort and apartment are not suitable for individuals with serious mobility, sight, or hearing difficulties.

Access to the Resort

A car is necessary to reach the resort.

Burgh Island from Bigbury-on-SeaTake the A379 Kingsbridge — Modbury (which is south of the A38 Exeter — Plymouth). At 1.5 miles south east of Modbury take the B3292 to Bigbury-on-Sea and keep going until you reach the sea. See also "How to find us" elsewhere on this website.

Having passed the public car park entrance take the first left and use the allocated code to open the main gate. Apartment 5 parking space is marked “5” and is almost directly opposite the main gate. There is good rear vehicle access. Walk the 50 yards West across the car park to the third staircase along. Take one step up, 8 steps down then 1 step up to the apartment block entry door which you can open with the allocated code. Take the lift to the ground floor and on exiting the lift turn left and open the key safe next to apartment 5 front door with the code supplied. There is low-level lighting in the car park and stairs to the apartment entrance but it is a wise precaution to carry a torch.

Other pages of this website provide links to information on beaches, pubs, shops and restaurants — see "Local activity directory" and "Best things to do" elsewhere on this website. A printed copy of this information is provided at the apartment in the information folder.

The nearest village with a selection of shops is Modbury which is five miles from the resort. Full facilities are available in the town of Kingsbridge some 10 miles from the resort.
