  • "Lovely stay in the Eddystone accommodation."

    Well equipped and comfortable furnishings. We had to have direct contact with the owners due to problems caused by the stormy weather and their response was both extremely prompt and very helpful. We would definately stay here again.

    Thank you for your positive feedback The storm was wild and glad we were able to act promptly and efficiently !! Hope you will return Property Owner

  • "Our second stay at Eddystone and as before, we had a very enjoyable time, considerably helped by the early October heatwave."

    We were pleased to see that the house information board had been updated and the instructions are very comprehensive. (Curious though as to why we had to turn the stopcock off at the end of our stay). Glad to see the recycle boxes were present and correct as well. Only two very small niggles - the light in the downstairs bedroom didn't work and the windows in the master bedroom were difficult to keep partly open (it was a choice of fully shut or fully open). The prosecco in the fridge was very welcome. All in all, we loved Eddystone and will probably be back for a third visit next year.

    So pleased you enjoyed your return visit to Eddystone and delighted you may consider coming again. Thrilled you love Hope cove as much as we do. Sorry about the light .We have mended it and we will look at the windows in the main bedroom. Glad you enjoyed the Prosseco and thank you for your helpful comments. Pleased you have booked again for 2024 Property Owner

  • "Having looked after properties and cleaned them for a number of years we are fairly well versed in this area so to us this property falls short on certain issues, mainly on the fact that there was no welcome pack!"

    In all our experiences of looking after and visiting similar establishments, there is always, always a welcome pack. So why not here? To us it shows the difference between people who really care about the place and those who take it for granted all people will be knocked out by the property! Considering the exorbitant price we paid for such a short time we think this property, sadly, falls into the latter catagory. This may be a standard in all your rentals, but in this day and age is totally not acceptable. Our arrival was delayed until 7pm therefore we didn't have time to get milk etc, it would have felt really good to have been welcomed by the giving of the basics to work from, but nothing of the sort! There was also the amount of do this and don't do that about the place, which we all felt a bit put out by. We can understand the reason, especially if the owner is a ex-naval person so the impact was minimal. CONCLUSION: If people care about places and people then thinking about what YOU would want and expect should be apparent and such a small touch can make a great deal of difference to those who rent such places. Also not to be so greedy, especially at this present time when greed is so prevalent!

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. Firstly, may we say, we really hope you enjoyed your stay at Eddystone and the beautiful area of Hope Cove that it is situated in. We are truly sorry you were so disappointed not to find a welcome pack on your arrival, however we do hope you enjoyed the bottle of prosecco that was left for you by the owner. We care greatly for our guests and it is our main priority to ensure they have an enjoyable holiday, we will of course pass on your comments regarding the welcome pack. We are sorry you felt the laminates were too much, unfortunately we have had guests in the past that have been less respectful than yourselves and they have been implemented in the hopes that similar situations do not happen in the future. We do hope that you had a lovely holiday and that we can welcome you back to the area soon. Coast and Country Cottages on behalf of the owner. Property Owner

    Can't wait to come back.

  • "Just a few things we'd like to point out on what is otherwise a lovely little house in a superb location overlooking Hope Cove and the sea."

    We notified Coast and Country/Sykes that we were expecting a third person to join us and were promised extra towels. Only two towel bales were given us. Also, there was no sign of any recyle boxes. According to the house notes, they should have been behind the house but there was no sign of them anywhere. We had to bring our recycling home. Also there was no timetable as to when the bin and boxes should be put out. The house notes said there should be a timetable on the pin board but there isn't. Also we were confused as to where to put used linen and towels at the end of the stay. The notes said put in bags. It wasn't until several days into the holiday that we discovered the bags hidden under the beds. The only other thing we found was that the dining room and kitchen are rather dark and had to keep the lights on during the day. All in all though, we loved our stay at Eddystone and may very well book it again.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback, we are thrilled you loved Eddystone. We are sorry that the towels were not left for you, we have no record of the call therefore we will investigate as to why this may be. We have spoken to the owner with regards to the rubbish, he has confirmed that there are two recycling boxes outside on the back wall and the instructions are on the pin board in the kitchen, we can only apologise that these were not seen. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and are delighted that you have already re-booked Eddystone for next year. Property Owner

  • "A lovely location, the house was very clean and tidy and well equipped."

    Access to both a garden and decking area was a real bonus. We would have welcomed a few more hand towels to leave in the bathrooms but that certainly wasn’t an issue.

    Thank you for your comments and pleased you enjoyed Eddystone Property Owner

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.
