    • “This cottage is cosy, clean, well equipped and a perfect holiday get away. It’s location is wonderful, so close to the sea. Hope Cove is a peaceful picturesque village with character. The cottage garden is a sheltered sun trap and even in November we were able to sit outside without coats. We enjoyed lighting the log burner in the evenings. We have now stayed here twice & want to return next year.”

    Mrs Vaughan-hughes, Wolverhampton, October 2018

    • “We had a really lovely holiday and the cottage is well equipped, especially for children having a high chair, cot, stair gate and some toys which was very helpful (saved on the packing). I contacted the caretaker before arrival and she set-up the stair gate for us which was very helpful. The cottage is only a minute walk from a lovely sandy beach too!”

    Mrs Totton, ISLEWORTH, June 2018

Regional Information

HOPE COVE Salcombe 4.6 miles; Kingsbridge 5.1 miles The picturesque and unspoiled village of Hope Cove lies in the sheltered curve of Bigbury Bay on Devon’s south coast. A choice destination for families, the two beaches offering soft sand and rock pools for sandcastle building and fishing for small crabs. The town remains a fishing village where crabs and lobsters are still landed, however it was once used by smugglers. Many ships have perished around the coast and the wrecks that lie beneath the waves make it a popular spot for divers. Above the beach there are a number of pubs and restaurants. The coastal footpath can be joined from here and leads towards Bigbury-on-sea in one direction and the coastal resort of Salcombe in the other.
