This is the perfect location for a pub trip on Christmas day.  Enjoy the sea air on the one-hour round-trip walk from the Bigbury-On-Sea to the Inn.  Take a seat and enjoy the atmosphere of this stunning inn open on Christmas Day.  Located in Ringmore, you can either drive from one of our other properties, or park at Bigbury Beach and stroll from there.’

Cosy up by the fire and enjoy a beverage with your nearest and dearest.  Either make the trip here to simply just appreciate a drink in this traditional pub or make an outing of it by completing the circular walk from Thurlestone to Bantham, or by enjoying a stomp along South Milton Sands.  Whatever the reason for the visit, it is an excellent place to escape the cooking and chaos that Christmas Day can sometimes be.
