  • “Lovely cottage very close to picturesque cove.”

    Unfortunately, once inside we found the kitchen was not very clean. Work surfaces, crockery and cutlery were dirty. The fridge also had bits of lettuce stuck to the back of the fridge and something spilt inside the door. Had to spend the first couple of hours of our holiday making everything clean. Loaded the dishwasher with cutlery and crockery but once finished found black bits all over the contents and inside the dishwasher door.

    Unfortunately, once inside we found the kitchen was not very clean. Work surfaces, crockery and cutlery were dirty. The fridge also had bits of lettuce stuck to the back of the fridge and something spilt inside the door. Had to spend the first couple of hours of our holiday making everything clean. Loaded the dishwasher with cutlery and crockery but once finished found black bits all over the contents and inside the dishwasher door. (Note left for cleaner, but she arrived a few minutes before we left so Hubby spoke to her). We also found the courtyard garden was full of weeds spoiling what could have been a nice space. The rest of the house was spacious with comfortable beds and a powerful en-suite shower. For a 4 star property we were a little disappointed.

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.

Provisions for wood burning stove not supplied, only dried Kiln can be used

The third bedroom is a twin room with two full-size single beds (which can be zipped together to make a super-King if requested at the time of booking).

Up to two well behaved dogs permitted.
