  • "A stunning property in a fantastic location."

    You can walk very easily into the village. Sou West is modern and spacious with beautiful countryside views. You can even see the sea! Would highly recommend.

  • "Lovely property in an area we know well from many years of holidays, but needs better maintenance."

    Fly infestation (many dead on the floor), Clothes were left in a draw, paintbrushes out in the utility. The heating thermostat deosn't work. No wifi in one of the bedrooms (teenage angst ensues!) Dripping inbetween the downstairs bedroom... I sent some more complete feedback to Coast & Country. Could be a great house, but just felt a little unloved in the detail areas.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are thrilled you loved the property. We can only apologise there were some flies upon your arrival, the property had been checked prior to your holiday and were not found, this has also not occurred before or after your visit. On investigation the dripping noise was outside the property due to the adverse weather. We were surprised to read your comments on the thermostat and Wi-Fi as we have not had these comments in the past, we will of course inspect these and rectify should there be an issue. We do hope you had a lovely holiday and enjoyed all the area has to offer. Property Owner

  • "Really well equipped, lovely comfortable holiday home which had everything we needed for a family stay at Christmas."

    Great location with country views from the garden and easy walk to the beach. Only niggle was the lack of instructions for waste disposal and recycling bins. No baby/toddler equipment provided but actually if you take cot, stairgate and high chair with you as we did, the house is very child friendly.

  • "Sou West was perfect for our family get together and birthday celebration."

    Very comfortable, everything was provided and the whole house is so well equipped. We found the property really easily and the arrival worked as planned with key safe. Found the Wi-Fi a little tricky to get established. Had to reboot several times. The kitchen equipment and all around the house was excellent. Beds comfy, bathrooms excellent. There was no information on how to dispose of waste. We segregated everything and left in porch, but didn't know what day to put out on road for collection. We know the area quite well from previous visits but this part of Devon is absolutely stunning. Visitors to Sou West will not be disappointed.

  • "We very much enjoyed our time at Sou West."

    The space was great and the kitchen and all the littles extra’s were a lovely added bonus. The only slight negative was we were unable to find a key for the two downstairs bedroom windows which made it very stuffy at times. We by chance found a key just under one of the sofas so was able to open them for the last two days. Great outside space with beautiful views of the countryside and even a sea view. If there was a hot tub as well it would be the cherry on top

  • "We stayed at Sou West in August with seven adults, a toddler and a baby."

    The property is spacious and in a lovely quiet setting and we had room to park four cars which was great . The view from the back is so relaxing ….. ,watching the sheep graze in the field,breathing in the fresh clear air ,and catching a glimpse of the sea. The kitchen / dining area is spacious and well equipped and there is a welcome dishwasher and utility room! The sitting room is comfortable and has a huge TV . We slept upstairs in the super king room …..definitely the best bedroom though the other three all have king size beds and are comfortable. There were a few things that could be improved. I kept looking above the sink in the bathroom but there was no mirror there! The disposal of rubbish was an issue since the instructions were not very clear. There were only a couple of black bin liners and no recycling bags available …fortunately we had brought extra black bags with us. A workman next door was very helpful in explaining where to put the black bags but said they are only emptied every two weeks on a Friday. There were some in there when we arrived and when we left the bin was almost full and not due to be emptied for another week. Also it is important to note that there are no facilities for toddlers and babies. We took our own high chairs, small mattress and travel cot. The property is quite highly priced and a bit more than we would usually pay but it was peak season and we all had a very enjoyable family time staying there.

  • "My grown up family of 5 had a lovely stay."

    The property was well proportioned and we had plenty of space to relax both in and outside the decking. The 15-20 minute walk to Hope Cove with its good local pub was welcome and a short drive into Salcombe. Would highly recommend it for a family stay.

  • "Wonderful place!"

    The beds are sooo comfy, and the cottage had everything you could want, a well equipped kitchen and outside area. Wifi was also very good, I would consider having a longer break and working from here a couple of days next time. Just a short walk down the hill to peacful Hope Cove, with a couple of nice eateries and a safe place to swim. For us there was nothing we would change, we loved it.

    Quality of furniture, fixtures and fittings was appreciated. Ideal for larger families. Location close to Hope Cove is a definite bonus.

  • "A lovely property, very comfortable and spacious and a lovely outside space for the dog to enjoy and for us to enjoy the views."

    In a great location. We had an amazing week and will be back again soon. A really well equipped property - the only additional things we would have liked to make it perfect would be been bath/shower mats for the bathrooms, a clothes airer and an outside brush to brush the patio.

After a day full of exploration, cross the threshold into your new home-from-home and head straight for the spacious sitting room where you can unwind on the plush, L-shaped sofa in front of the gentle warmth of the gas flame-effect stove and Smart TV.

Later, head into the fully-equipped kitchen/diner to rustle up a tasty meal to be enjoyed around the dining table; on warmer evenings, why not step outside to the rear garden where you can fire up the barbecue and dine alfresco with a memorable backdrop.

On chillier evenings the snug provides breath-taking views across the countryside while allowing you to stay warm; when the evening draws to a close, wash off the day’s adventures in either the ground-floor shower room or the sleek bathroom on the first floor.

After freshening up, catch up on your rest in either king-size bedroom on the ground floor or the super-king and king-size on the first.

If you can tear yourself away from this delightful dwelling, take a short drive into Malborough where you can stock up on all of your self-catering essentials at local convenience stores and treat your loved ones to a break from the kitchen with a delicious meal at one of the many local restaurants.

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.
