    “Myself, 3 friends and one dog spent a week at Osbourne House on November 1st for an Autumn break.”

    Firstly I should say that we had a lovely holiday and if you want peace and quiet then this was a really great time to go. We could not fault the position of the cottage in Hope Cove as everything you need; beaches, walks, shops and pubs are in really close proximity to the cottage. ...

    Firstly I should say that we had a lovely holiday and if you want peace and quiet then this was a really great time to go. We could not fault the position of the cottage in Hope Cove as everything you need; beaches, walks, shops and pubs are in really close proximity to the cottage. We had a few issues with the cottage on the first day as there was a magnificent storm which caused power cuts and threw the underfloor heating system out but we contacted Sykes and they sent the caretaker around to sort the problem and we did not suffer as there are numerous oil radiators through the cottage so we were kept warm. The caretaker was fab and went out of her way to make sure we were looked after including bringing us extra DVDs and coming back next day to ensure the heating was working. The cottage itself is a little worn in places but is warm, spacious and very well equipped even down to condiments and cleaning sprays etc. The listing says parking for one car and it has a very smal raised parking space in front of the house on which I managed to get a small SUV but there is a space directly behind that allows access to the space that we used to squeeze in our second car which was a bonus. Please note that it is tight though but there is a car park close by for which you can pay daily or buy a weeks pass So in summary, excellent position, well equipped, spacious, no mobile signal! so we used wifi for emails etc a little worn around the edges but still clean and comfortable, small smart tv with no access to Netflix etc as weak wifi signal, We loved it and will definitely return.

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.
