    “The property was very an interesting and generally enjoyable place to stay in although probably not somewhere we would stay during the summer months as the darkened windows give a gloomy atmosphere downstairs even when we did get sunshine.”

    Also there is no comfortable seating for the patio area. The kitchen cupboards are tricky to open, particularly the dishwasher door due to the heaviness of it and the poor fronted units. We actually hurt our hands on 2-3 occasions. However generally we found it very comfortable once we worked out how to reduce the heat! ...

    Also there is no comfortable seating for the patio area. The kitchen cupboards are tricky to open, particularly the dishwasher door due to the heaviness of it and the poor fronted units. We actually hurt our hands on 2-3 occasions. However generally we found it very comfortable once we worked out how to reduce the heat! It would have been very helpful to have had a cot provided as is common to most rental properties. The high-chair was not easy/safe to use as no insert cushion provided. We liked the location very much and hope to return sometime though perhaps without children.

    Many thanks for leaving your feedback, we are pleased you had an enjoyable stay. We are surprised to hear that you felt the downstairs of the property had a “gloomy atmosphere’’ as the large French doors let in so much natural light. The cushions for the outdoor furniture are in a cupboard which is advised in the welcome book. We are sorry there was no insert for the high chair however the owner had brought the high chair especially for your booking as you had requested one. We are grateful for the comments in respect of the property and have passed on your feedback to the owner. The Old Cider Barn is indeed in a great location and we hope to welcome you back to the area soon. Owner relations

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.

There is an additional supplement of £175.00 to be paid for the addition of two further guests to use the family bedroom

Maximum of 4 adults and 2 children allowed at the property including the use of the twin beds
