  • "This is the 3rd holiday property we've stayed in at Hope Cove and we loved it."

    The previous 2 were also good. 2 Armada House was spacious, warm and clean with excellent facilities. It was great to have a dishwasher. The location is fabulous being right by the local shop and the restaurants (although the restaurants themselves aren't particularly great - and very expensive - which is a shame). There is no parking but we found a great free spot up above The Cottage hotel which is out of the way yet easily accessible. Some reviews have mentioned noise from the property above. Whilst we did hear a bit it did not bother us. I imagine if guests up there are running around a lot it could be a problem but that was not the case for us. Totally recommend this property and would happily stay there again.

  • "We did have a lovely stay and the accommodation was comfortable, however, a bit more attention to quality and cleanliness would have gone a long way."

    Although the flat was initially presentable, it was not as clean as we would have liked. For example, the skirtings were very dusty when we had to move the bed, some of the pans, cutlery and glasses were dirty and although we understand that the outside windows were covered in sand due to a recent storm, the inside of the windows were also grubby. The décor was good throughout, but starting to show its age and some of the doors would strike the floor. The bathroom door in particular needed a bit of a shove to open past 1/3 of its travel. The microwave had been used so often that all of the icons and text had rubbed off the fascia, leaving a collection of random buttons with no idea of which ones to press. All the previous accommodation we have booked through Sykes has provided a lovely little welcome basket, so we were also disappointed that there was no welcome pack here. No milk, tea or coffee. This wouldn't have been a problem if there had been an open shop in Hope Cove (the post office is given to random opening times and only in the morning). This should have been made clear in the information about the accommodation so that we could have prepared more, instead of having to drive 15 minutes out of town again to the nearest shop! We were unaware of the complete lack of phone reception in the area and would have appreciated this fact being made clear in the welcome notes as we were unable to access the directions until we used a pub’s wifi. At one point we needed to contact Sykes, asking them to please e-mail a response because there was no phone reception. So we were somewhat frustrated that they repeatedly tried to call us back, which we only received once we’d departed! We would have appreciated the instructions for getting to and into the house being a bit clearer, for example that you drive down past the hotel car parks and keep going and that the front of the house is actually at the back. Although this was hinted at it took some hunting to find the entrance. It was also a little disappointing that the photo of the sea view in the advert came from a tiny side window and the main windows had no such view. The key safe is a little affected by the salt and sand I think as sometimes it was quite tricky to open.

    It's become a very special place for us and I'm sure we will be back! Such a lovely apartment. Perfect location for the beach, pubs, exploring and had everything we needed.

    All the kitchenware and amenities you need for a break. Wifi was great, streaming on laptop was easy. Loved staying there and would definitely go back and recommend to friends.

    Had to go and buy some upon discovering this - reminders about everything except towels?! Apartment was good value for money but the soundproofing is poor and we were woken @ 5.30am each day by the flat above… not very relaxing! The mattresses are much too soft…

    I think there should be more emphasis on this for elderly/nervous drivers.

  • "The apartment is very spacious and well equipped but the noise from other apartments is so loud, you can hear every step above so a noisy family in there can be quite difficult at night."

    Also the Wi-fi does not work in any room expect the hall. All that is needed is a couple of plug in boosters which don’t cost much. The DVD player does not work. There was dust on some surfaces and the en suite bathroom smells so needs an air freshener or diffuser in there. It was a lot of money so I would have expected it to be very clean and everything working. The area is great however and there are lovely restaurants locally. We would return to the area but not this property.

    Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay and we’re glad you found the property well equipped and spacious. The owners have been in contact with their internet provider and have upgraded their package and installed boosters to improve the wireless signal within the property. We’re surprised that the DVD player wasn’t working as this was purchased recently, but a replacement has been purchased. We can only apologise if you experienced a smell in the ensuite bathroom, this isn’t something that has been mentioned before but we do believe that there was a sewerage issue in Hope Cove over your dates which may have been the cause of this. Many thanks again, and we hope we can welcome you back to the area soon. Property Owner

  • "Excellent location and well equipped apartment."

    Just a slight concern that the floors were slightly dirty (noticed on wearing white socks). It was clear the wooden floors had not been mopped recently. This didn't detract as everywhere else was very clean and we had a great stay in a fantastic location. Thanks for arranging the fantastic April weather !!

  • "It was a great holiday the accommodation was spacious and homely and so near to the beach The only downside was the noise from upstairs which we expected from other reviews thinking it would not be too bad but its extremely noisy like people are coming through the ceiling so not much sleep."

    Which was a shame. Also found the kitchen was well equipped but hard to prepare food as knives etc need replacing for sharper ones . Otherwise thankyou for a lovely stay Debra

  • "We had a great stay so close to all amenities with amazing coastal walks & views."

    The accommodation was spot on plenty of room. Beds where a bit soft but that didn’t dampen our holiday, we would definitely go back again. Wi-fi kept cutting in & out to be honest that wasn’t a problem for us as when we go away we want to get away from everything but I can understand if you are on your phone a lot this would be a problem. Perfect peaceful holiday. I don’t think it would be as peaceful in the height of season. Great place would definitely recommend.

  • "We really liked the position of our flat, so near the beach and able to go out and see the sea immediately."

    Good to be have walks on your doorstep with fab views. If you park at the top of the hill you can park for free with a road right down to your appartment, very quick though road down is very steep. Quite hard to drop off luggage, but can be done with a bit of help! Lounge and kitchen were so roomy and filled with light. I slept in the lounge as double bedroom, although nice, was quite dark and lot of noise from cafe next door, didn't affect my husband, but I am a light sleeper.

  • "Met expectations in so many ways and a beautiful property in a lovely little village."

    However a few issues. In no particular order: 1. No spare key made security a challenge when separated. No phone signal made this harder (not that we expected good coverage in Hope Cove). 2. Wifi was next to non existent. No coverage in bedrooms or living spaces. Even standing right next to the router there was very limited coverage for browsing/messaging. Certainly not capable of any streaming. Interestingly other members of our family rented 'the moorings' and the wifi coverage at theirs was as good as we experience at home. 3. The cable for the DVD player (scart) did not fit the smart tv. As per issue 2 we were unable to watch any catch up etc. The purpose of our visit was other than to sit around watching films however, that would have been an option we would have liked in the evening.

    Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback - There is a key safe at the Armada Apartments so you are able to leave the key securely at all times at the property. We have tested the broadband signal and have not found an issue using the internet on different devices in different rooms. Thank you for letting us know about the scart lead, a new DVD player has now been installed. If you had made us aware during your stay we could have attended to look at the wi-fi and DVD issues whilst you were here. We are sorry for any inconvenience that was caused. Despite these issues, we hope to welcome you back to the area again soon. Property Owner

    They sounded like they were marching up and down in boots, mainly later at night on a fairly regular basis and for a long time. Not good when trying to sleep. Also a fair amount of hammering went on one day. Hope cove is beautiful . Worth a visit.

  • "Highly recommend 2 Armada House in Hope Cove."

    The location is perfect with beaches and South West Coastal Path just outside your door. The property is in excellent condition, clean and well equipped. Originally planned on staying in Salcombe but so glad we found this location and looking forward to returning next year. Nearby and within a 2 to 3 minute walk are multiple restaurants. Also, going in both directions on the Southwest Coastal Path are amazing walks. One direction leads to South Milton Sands beach(1 mile walk) and the other just stunning views of Hope Cove and beyond. Salcombe is a 15 minute drive, Also within 15 minutes is a Tesco and Morrison's.

    We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay in Hope Cove. We think that the Armada Cottages are a great place to base yourself, meaning that you can explore all that the area has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Property Owner

  • "Great apartment."

    The only limitation is that one bedroom is adjacent to The Cove kitchen and the extractor fan from their kitchen. Thus it was noisy and smelled of fried food most of the time. Otherwise the apartment was excellent. The refuse collection failed, however the Salcombe office resolved this issue efficiently and effectively.

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.
