    Lots of information about house and area, with useful recommendations (particularly regarding dogs). Fantastic location. Really good Wi-Fi (2 of us working on videocalls).

  • "A really homely holiday house with plenty of kitchen utensils- above and beyond anywhere we’ve stayed before-books, games and home comforts such as a pile of rugs in the conservatory ."

    The phone calls to check in from the letting agent and owner were appreciated, as was the postcard apologising for the cracks in the wallpaper in one bedroom- which we probably wouldn’t have noticed to be honest! Really comfortable beds, lovely downstairs shower room, dishwasher, large fridge/ freezer and washer/dryer made this a fantastic place to stay. The view from the bedroom window was stunning. Our only regret- that we can’t rebook for next Easter!

  • "Beautifully presented cottage, well equipped, with great views."

    However totally agree with some previous reviews that the parking description needs to be amended. The ‘ space’ is a narrow, gravel area with a low ridged edge next to a low wall, so half of the car is in the road and parking in front of the garage, the car is totally in the road. Thankfully it was a quiet time of year and our cars, being relatively small, were able to fit one behind the other along the road edge. The majority of other properties on the same side of the road, have extended their parking facilities in to their garden areas. As the property sleeps 6 if this issue was addressed it would be perfect!

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are thrilled you loved your stay at Cottage View. We can only apologise you had some difficulty with parking. We have spoken with the owner, who is hoping to extend that parking facilities in the new year. We do hope we can welcome you back to the area soon. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is fabulously equipped and located, lovely comfortable beds and powerful showers, however it is in need of some TLC."

    The sofas need replacing, they are very very uncomfortable! wallpaper hanging off of the wall in main bedroom, toilet holder broken to name a few issues. Having said that we had a great stay.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback, We are thrilled that you had a lovely time at cottage view and you found it to be very well equipped. We can only apologise for the wall paper hanging down, this is a relatively new issue and as the property has been booked back to back we were unable to sort the issue immediately due to it taking longer than the allocated change over time. We are happy to say that the owner has now addressed this issue and will look at any other comments made regarding the property. We hope that we can welcome you back to the area soon. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was in a good location and was very comfortable."

    However, there was damp in the master bedroom with wallpaper hanging off the wall. This needs to be addressed. Also, parking was difficult. Your listing states parking for 2 cars - that would be very difficult. To park in front of the garage door as suggested, a very small car would be needed. The main parking space was only half a car's width and passengers/ animals needed to disembark before the car could be parked. The listing needs amending with regard to parking.

    Thank you for your feedback, We can only apologise for the wall paper hanging down, this is a relatively new issue and as the property has been booked back to back we were unable to sort the issue immediately due to it taking longer than the allocated change over time. We are happy to say that the owner has now addressed this issue. Thank you for your comments regarding the parking, we will certainly have a look at the listing. We do hope that you had a lovely stay despite the matters you have raised and enjoyed all the area has to offer. Property Owner

  • "Good sized accommodation with lovely outdoor spaces."

    Easy access to beach and local shops. Comfortable beds and clean bathroom and shower room. Plenty of hot water. Ample crockery, cutlery and pans meant that the dishwasher could be filled before using. On the downside, there was evidence of dog hair on the downstairs furniture and carpets and general cleanliness could be improved. The light switches and door handles were sticky and corners were dusty.

  • "The cottage was very well equipped."

    However there was so much 'stuff' in the kitchen cupboards that there was no room for our food. We had to empty out one of the cupboards onto the washing machine in order to give us some worktop preparation space. Everything worked well and the outside space was perfect. Parking for our second car was much more difficult than described,

    It was warm and cosy with games and books to entertain, and such a delight to have a super king bed in the master bedroom that was comfortable! Also a perfect location, with literally a five minute walk down a little trail to the beach, which has a lovely cafe called ‘The Cove’, that served fabulous fish and chips at lunchtime. Would thoroughly recommend this cottage.

    Excellent views from the master bedroom across the cove and out to sea. Bed was very comfortable and the level of equipment and finish was very high. Fully enclosed garden to the rear and patio to the front. The nearest thing to a complaint is that the kitchen is so well equipped there isn't any room in the cupboards if you buy food!

  • "May I congratulate you on creating such a cozy house for us to borrow, we absolutely love the cottage and have already booked for next year."

    We have been to Hope Cove twice before and have definitely found "home from home". You have thought of absolutely everything to cater for every type of family with children, from young to older generation(my father loved visiting and reading your extensive books) My children and I are actually quite sad to leave Cottage View and Hope Cove even more now. For those visiting like us with young children, highly recommend a day out to Pennywell Farm, Hope Cove Beach, South Milton beach (National Trust), crabbing on the Harbour wall in Salcombe ( park in Shadycombe Rd CP). Food is always good in 'The Cove', we did the new pods which was novel. Ice cream is fabulous at the local shop and they really do have supplies for almost everything. Tesco in Kingsbridge (15 mins) or co op in Malborough (5 mins). Thank you for being fabulous owners who really do care about their guests stay. All The best!

  • "Cottage View exceeded our hopes in many ways."

    It was clean and fresh throughout and exceedingly well equipped. It's much larger than we expected on the inside and outside too, with bundles of space for four adults, a toddler and two dogs. The location is just fantastic, being so close to the sea, pub, cafe/bar (brilliant!) and shop. We all agreed that we should make it an annual trip as it would be hard to find a better family holiday location in the UK.

  • "Excellent location and only a short walk from the beach but very steep."

  • "What a super find."

    A house with a view. Equipped with all one needs for a holiday by the sea, the view, plenty of space in all the rooms, the kitchen, user friendly with good china, glasses, cutlery saucepans etc. Lovely sitting room area linked to the conservatory with plenty of extra items, information about the area, it's history, the maps, interesting books and a super selection of games and jigsaws which kept us all amused! Fantastic! Three excellent double bedrooms, the largest huge with a super king bed and a stupendous view over Hope Cove. The smallest with bunk beds. Good bathroom upstairs and shower downstairs plus a downstairs toilet. All excellent. From the parking space to the property was a pretty garden and steep steps down to a really useful patio plus table and chairs near the kitchen. Outside the conservatory with a view over the Cove, yet another patio with table and chairs. All in all a great home-from-home although perhaps not suitable for anybody who couldn't manage steps or hills. The coastal path is only a couple of minutes on level ground from the car park although the path down to the Cove is steep. Wonderful position for walking the Coastal path. The changeable weather did not stop us having a wonderful, comfortable week. Thank you Cottage View!

    The facilities available are of the highest quality giving all the family the space they need on holiday. A family bathroom/toilet a separate toilet and an additional shower room reduces the morning wait when coming with all the family. the conservatory is just the place to read and doze whatever the weather and being able to sit up in bed (in the main bedroom) and watch the sea roll into the cove is an added bonus.

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.

Region Information

Second bedroom has twin beds which can be made into a super-King. Must be requested at time of booking. Up to two well behaved dogs permitted - they must stay on ground floor only.
