Lovely position & easy access to the beach & coastal path. The garden & veranda were a bonus. Some rooms have been redecorated but some were in need of work. Purely personal to our stay, we found the seating in the lounge could have been better for four adults. Ideal property for a family with children.
Coast and Country Cottages's reply:
Tarqua is a delightful property in Hope Cove, as you said, close to the coast path and beach. Thank you for your comments regarding the décor, we hope you enjoyed your stay and plan to return to beautiful South Devon soon!

This was a beautiful, comfortable and well-appointed cottage, perfectly placed in Hope Cover, a few metres from the sea front. There was everything you could possibly need in the cottage, and more. Good, safe, off-road parking. Faultlessly functioning Wi-Fi.

Basically a well equipped house with plenty of room for 5 adults and baby. Good position close to Hope cove beach and pub. Good to have a garden. It would have been useful to know that the dishwasher only takes powder detergent! I had taken tablets. No - one buys powder anymore! Hob is tricky to use, keeps turning itself off. The Wifi was essential here as no mobile phone reception. Overall a good property to rent and we had an enjoyable stay.

Everything available for a three generation family holiday. Felt like 'home' by the seaside.

The house was roomy and well appointed for a family holiday. The house was clean and there were plenty of kitchen cleaning products included. We would not have booked the house if WiFi had not been available. We did miss the provision of towels because one family travelled from America. We enjoyed being close to the beach.
