  • "Had a fantastic time in cottage view."

    Had everything you could possibly want for a stay, and loved how clearly the instructions and information was. Very spacious and located in the perfect location for costal walks. If anything at all, the only change I’d make is the sofa. Dated and uncomfortable but not unusable Overall had a fantastic stay at cottage view and would love to come back again

    It is perfectly situated and very well equipped with dogs being as well catered for as humans. The very homely feel to the property made us feel very much at home. Thank you very much.

  • "Very disapointed and gutted to think after visiting Cottage View, Hope Cove, recently we were accused of damaging the glass hob on the cooker."

    Money was taken from my bank account without my say so, we are in our sixties, and would never cause damage like that to another person's property. Absolutely appalled. YES PLEASE publish my feedback.

    We can only apologise you were upset that you have been charged for the damage at the property. The property was checked by a member of our team, the owner and also the long standing cleaner before your arrival and after your departure and unfortunately all parties, independently reported that the damage was done during your stay. You were made aware of the situation on the day of your departure. We do hope you understand why the Good Housekeeping Bond was used in this instance, we of course do not enjoy deducting any money from the Bond, however on rare occasions, when accidental damage occurs we do need to cover the costs incurred on behalf of the owner.

  • "We had gone to Hope Cove through family recommendation."

    We had a fantastic week mainly walking around the Hope Cove, Thurlestone and Salcombe areas and coastal paths. The views and walks were fantastic along with plenty of birds and wildlife. Cottage View provided us with the perfect base for our stay. The facilities were more than adequate for the four of us, plus our 1 dog. The owners had provided plenty of information about the facilities and features of the cottage which eased our settling in period. For those wishing to walk there were numerous maps and books covering the South Devon Area. The provision of trays and bowls for the dog as well as some throws for the furniture did assist but we had brought our own. The bars and restaurants in Hope Cove provided excellent food and drink, local sea food included at what seemed like reasonable prices. The parking at the cottage was fine for our 2 estate cars and may have allowed room for a further small car. We did however find that the access to the cottage was perhaps steeper than we expected but we coped fine with it.

    The first time where we encountered unfavourable weather for a few days however this cottage is so spacious and the conservatory so light, warm and welcoming the days as usual flew by. Looking forward to our next stay. Top marks to the owner and especially the Coast and Country team, excellent.

  • "This cottage was like a home from home."

    It felt immediately welcoming and contained everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. The views over Hope Cove from the conservatory and main bedroom provided spectacular views of the stormy seas during our stay. It was a short walk down the footpath to the beach and the very welcoming pubs - all off-road. One downside is that the slope and steps down to the cottage from the parking place and the steps at the front to the footpath are quite steep and were quite challenging in the dark - a torch is essential. Also the parking place is quite narrow although our VW camper fitted with some shuffling! The village shop has short opening hours and limited stock so if you want to cook at home you need to take supplies with you. However we loved Cottage View and hope to revisit soon.

    Thank you for your positive feedback. We are pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay at Cottage View. We are aware that the steps down from the parking place to the cottage and the steps to the footpath are steep and can be quite a challenge in the dark. We appreciate your concern and have improved the lighting. There are also torches in the corner kitchen cabinet! The extension of the narrow parking place is planned for February 2023. Should you ever wish to book Cottage View again, you will find ample parking space for your VW camper, so no more shuffling! Property Owner

  • "I have never left such a glowing review for any property or the services provided like this before."

    The high ratings given are certainly deserved in all aspects. The description of the property is extremely accurate, but most important is the standard of service provided by both Coast and Country and the owner. We are sure that the provision of a holiday home can be quite challenging especially were many day to day problems can occur. Electrical equipment can falter, adverse weather such as high winds can affect the services provided in any home or property. We did unfortunately experience such an instance which was of no fault of Coast and Country or the owner. This problem was reported to Coast and Country, who acted immediately. Within the shortest of times the problem was fixed, organised by the Coast and Country team in liaison with the owner. This included the owner contacting us both before and after the problem was fixed. It is because of this excellent property, and service, that we have already rebooked this property again. Well done to Coast and Country and the owner, we certainly look forward to our next visit knowing that we will be enjoying the best of services by people who care, and a team working hard behind the scenes to ensure we have a carefree holiday.

    I am so pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay at Cottage View and that the problem with the broken TV set could be resolved so quickly by the C&C team. We've been with C&C ever since they went into business more than 20 years ago and love cooperating with their hard-working team. I for my part also try to make a stay at Cottage View as carefree as possible for our guests. Thank you for booking with us again! Property Owner

  • "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 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.

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!

    A house with a view.

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!

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.
