    “We had an amazing stay at this property.”

    It is spacious and comfortable. The owners obviously love and care for this cottage and it has a ‘homey’ feel that is genuine. Great location too!

A brilliant family house at any time of year, moments from the beach with lovely coastal walks on the doorstep and a cosy retreat in the winter.

About the location


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.

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Off-season
  • Christmas
