    “A stunning location, an iconic house and a shame it is to be knocked down and replaced by a new build.”


    The decoration and facilities are tired in places but the cottage is still comfortable, spacious and well equiped. Surprised towels were not provided as most holidlay lets provide them. Downside was the radiators in the two bathrooms were not working which was a problem with the weather so cold. The main bathroom had nowhere to dry towels. The caretaker came promptly but was unabe to solve the problem. A real irritation was the large building site next door but one - starting at 7am, often muliple diggers in the access road and many trades vans parked making access to drive difficult at times and lots of mud. However - we would visit again - and if you like properties with character book soon before it is knocked down.

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.

Please note, there is extensive ONGOING building work still being carried out in 2022 at the neighboring property (Latern Lodge). Please call the office for additional information.

This is a pet friendly property, however please ensure they are not in carpeted areas. Dogs are charged at £25 per dog, per week.

Please note that the garden is steeply banked in places - very young children should be supervised.

Due to the arrangements of beds, this property is suitable for a maximum of 6 adults only.
