  • “We absolutely loved the cottage, although in the end we were a party of six adults and a toddler and we felt that the house was almost at capacity.”

    The downstairs area seems rather too small to accommodate eight adults comfortably. Of course, it is ideal for families. The cliff top walks, the sea, the seals and the sunsets were just amazing. The cottage is fantastically well equipped and very clean. Lovely tokens of welcome from the owners too. Many thanks, much appreciated. ...

The cottage is fantastically well equipped and very clean. Lovely tokens of welcome from the owners too. Many thanks, much appreciated. Hope Cove is very lovely, and we feel sad that the current difficulties are preventing the pub and restaurants from opening as they would like. The village post office/ shop stocks only the barest minimum of tinned and packet foods and no fresh fruit of veg at all. There was no bread for sale while we were there, but they do a nice line in pasties, if you're quick. Our advice is to bring your own supplies at least for the first day or two. Our only other comment is the lack of recycling boxes available for No 4 Coastguards, as all the other houses seem to have them. We regrettably had to throw some recyclable items into the main bin.

The property

4 Coastguards Cottage is a big house in a row of five in the little village of Inner Hope 1/3 mile from Hope Cove.

Close to the beach and Coast Path, it is roomy accommodation converted from two coastguards’ cottages in a picturesque setting.

Head up the steps to the front door and you will find yourself in the big kitchen with a dining table to seat everyone, or go on through to the welcoming sitting room with its cosy traditional wood burning stove.

At the end of a fun and busy day on the beach head upstairs to sleep peacefully in four bedrooms sharing a family bathroom and the downstairs shower room.

You have plenty of outdoor space to front and back of the house, with a safely enclosed garden at the front with lawn and a barbecue and outdoor furniture on the patio, as well as an enclosed courtyard at the back where you can pile your surf and beach gear when you come back from the shore.

This is a brilliant place for a seaside holiday with two beaches within 200 yards, where you can launch boats and kayaks and play with the toys and beach games which are thoughtfully provided at the house.

Venture further and you can easily find a different and lovely beach for every day of the week if the mood takes you.

Salcombe is a fashionable and nautical little town which is great for interesting shops and eateries and you can walk there along the cliff top via Bolt Head.

Maybe tee off for a round of golf on scenic courses at Bigbury or Thurlestone.

Or why not simply relax, enjoy the beautiful thatched cottages and shoreline and forget your worries for a while?

4 Coastguards Cottage is a smashing base for all the family to find something to amuse them.

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.
