  • "Only a small thing but the TV says it is a smart TV but none of the “apps” work."

    It would have been nice to use Netflix etc which seemed to be there but not connected (we did try logging in etc). Also the fireplace was not cleaned out before we fou it to use.

  • "We have had a fabulous stay at Osborne House which is lovely, really comfortable, warm and cosy."

    The garden is a real bonus and we couldn’t fault the facilities. We would definitely book again when we go with the family

  • "The holiday was fantastic , the house superb ( our third visit ) the cleanliness of the house was second to none."

    There is no shortage of anything. The only downside in booking with sykes is that you have to be prepared to wait on the phone for over an hour till you get to speak to someone and also can't believe the price hike for the same week next year but we still booked again .. there should be some ĺoyalty for repeat customers under these circumstances.

  • "The cottage was clean and comfortable with views of the sea from several of the bedroom windows."

    The car parking space is only suitable for a small car and would be tricky to park outside the property if you had a large vehicle. There was an underlying smell of drains and sewerage outside the property, so if you left the windows open upstairs it would drift into the rooms. Overall, the cottage is in a great location with good local amenities.

  • "The house was in a perfect location, with the added bonus of a parking space outside the house."

    The kitchen was very well stocked with glasses and crockery, pots and pans etc, and more important, the beds were comfy! We will definitely be back.

  • "Despite a large price hike this year, there were no improvements that we noticed save for an additional door key and garden bench, which were welcome."

    The WiFi coverage in the building is awful and the bbq has almost no tools and no handle. That aside pretty much like last year.

  • "After an initial panic , arriving and not being able to turn the key in the front door, once it eventually opened we were thrilled with the spaciousness of the house."

    The layout is fab, it is homely, felt warm & more than well equipped. Every room was clean, bathrooms worked well, nice touch with soaps available. Beds very comfortable & clean & considering how windy it was the house feels well insulated with those lovely thick walls. The kitchen is fab- very well stocked & underfloor heating was amazing. We have absolutely enjoyed a lovely family of 6 get together in a ‘proper’ comfortable house, enjoyed the fresh sea air, the stunning scenery of Hope & the hospitality of the locals . Thank you

  • "Lovely place but in urgent need of upgrading."

    Installing central heating would be a good investment. Oil radiators is so out of date. Lovely kitchen with underfloor heating leaves the rest of the property well out of date. I would use this cottage again for its location. p s furniture is very tatty.

  • "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. 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.

  • "We have been holidaying in Hope Cove for many years and at Osborn House for the last eight years."

    We love it,the house is in such a fantastic position,is very well furnished and comfortable. We have noticed,and in fact reported,that the garden furniture is really not up to the standard it should be,with some broken chairs.,not enough seating for the eight people that the house is for. The outside steps to the kitchen are quite dangerous....they badly need a hand rail.We have had some nasty falls on them. We love Osborn House,and it is like coming home,when we arrive.

    Rear of house from garden could do with a coat of paint and some of radiators could do with maintenance for winter stays, but overall a really pleasant stay .

  • "Osborn house is a fantastic location and well equipped for large families."

    Great to have the large kitchen/diner and two bathrooms. The only thing I would say is the mattresses do need replacing some of our family didn't have great nights sleep due to uncomfortable beds which is a shame on holiday.

  • "Absolutely what we needed."

    Phenomenal location - big enough for our family of six. Very well-equipped kitchen which was great as we cooked for 14 people on Easter Sunday. The photos on your website don't do it justice - both the location, and the inside of the house (the smaller sitting room isn't even featured, for instance). Would definitely return again.

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.
