The property

Smugglers’ View is a recently renovated two bedroom first-floor apartment perched within the picturesque coastal sanctuary of Hope Cove, reputed for smuggling and plundered shipwrecks and a charming holiday destination.

A home from home, Smugglers’ View makes for a fantastic holiday choice for a couple or family of four.

Park at the off-road parking space, before making your way up to the property to begin your holiday.

The light and airy open-plan living space enjoys stunning countryside and sea views, looking out over the Cove and the lusciously evergreen Bolberry Down. After a day of exploring, soothe tired muscles with a soak in the bath or freshen up under the overhead shower.

Relax in the sitting area and select your viewing from the Smart TV with DVD player.

When it’s time for bed, choose from two well-appointed bedrooms, a double and an adult bunk, both with plenty of storage for your belongings.

In the village you will find a delightful choice of eateries.

Enjoy fresh sea food at the Lobster Pod Bistro, award winning fayre at The Cove or daily bespoke menus at Hope Cove House; perfect for refuelling at the end of the day.

The village also has a Post Office/shop where you can pick up essentials.

Keen walkers will delight at the proximity of coastal walks.

A short stroll to the end of the road takes you directly to the South West Coast Path where you can hike for miles in both directions as you explore the best sights and scenery in the region.

Wander between the thatched cottages of Inner and Outer Hope to discover stunning coastline, unspoilt sandy beaches and hidden coves.

Perfect for classic bucket-and-spade holidays and relaxing on the golden sands, Hope Cove is also ideal for paddle boarding or kayaking.

For anyone who can tear themselves away from this idyllic location, the charming towns of Salcombe, Kingsbridge and Modbury are all close by, whilst the wild open spaces of Dartmoor are also within easy reach.

The National Trust site of Overbeck’s Garden is a short drive away, as is the multi-award winning Salcombe Gin Distillery.

With space to unwind and so much to do, Smugglers’ View is perfect for a holiday at any time of year.

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.
