  • “We absolutely loved the cottage, although in the end we were a party of six adults and a toddler and we felt that the house was almost at capacity.”

    The downstairs area seems rather too small to accommodate eight adults comfortably. Of course, it is ideal for families. The cliff top walks, the sea, the seals and the sunsets were just amazing. The cottage is fantastically well equipped and very clean. Lovely tokens of welcome from the owners too. Many thanks, much appreciated. ...

The cottage is fantastically well equipped and very clean. Lovely tokens of welcome from the owners too. Many thanks, much appreciated. Hope Cove is very lovely, and we feel sad that the current difficulties are preventing the pub and restaurants from opening as they would like. The village post office/ shop stocks only the barest minimum of tinned and packet foods and no fresh fruit of veg at all. There was no bread for sale while we were there, but they do a nice line in pasties, if you're quick. Our advice is to bring your own supplies at least for the first day or two. Our only other comment is the lack of recycling boxes available for No 4 Coastguards, as all the other houses seem to have them. We regrettably had to throw some recyclable items into the main bin.

Reached along a footpath with, at the front, enclosed garden with shrubs, patio (table/bench, barbecue) and 3 steps down to lawn; at the back, enclosed courtyard with lots of space for surf/beach gear.

Inside, a feeling of space, welcoming.

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. Hope Cove: little fishing village (shop, pubs) with harbour and sandy beach between red cliffs 4 miles from Salcombe, very pretty along its shore and with an especially lovely old area of thatched cottages.

Superb cliff walks - Bolt Tail to Bolt Head (Nat.

About the location

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.
