  • "Although we had a lovely week at the house and it’s in a good position (7 minutes walk to the beach) with beautiful views I’d just like to report that the house does need a good clean and sort out."

    The oven was filthy along with the kitchen bin. The kitchen drainer doesn’t drain and was filthy in the drainer outlet and the plug in the kitchen sink doesn’t work either. The scissors were broken and the cafetière had no filter top. The drawers in the kitchen and living room are filled with random rubbish, leaving no space to store anything. There was mould on the skirting board in the downstairs bedroom and widows in the main bedroom. The air drier was cheap and inadequate and kept falling over and was not fit for purpose especially as it’s a house for six people. The lock on the upstairs main bathroom didnt work. Also the carpets do need a good Clean, there is a little vacuum but it wasn’t really strong enough for the carpets.

    Hi Karen, We are so pleased that you enjoyed the position of Paddlers Rest and enjoyed your stay in the area. There really are some wonderful views to be enjoyed from the property and the patio and gardens. As owners, we are devastated to see your further comments and as such we have immediately raised these with Coast and Country to be addressed as a matter of urgency. We await their response as the property is fully managed locally in Salcombe. We have arranged for replacement scissors and a new cafetiere to be delivered. We understand that sometimes things are broken during bookings but these are not always reported leaving us unable to rectify. We do endeavor to do regular checks but can't manage this weekly. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. It is the intention that the contents of the drawers should be kept to useful additions, foil/sandwich bags etc. with games and books in the lounge. We have received positive feedback for having these items in the past. I suspect that perhaps items have been left behind by previous guests which we will look to have reviewed as soon as possible. Paddlers Rest is a very important part of our lives and we do hope that all guests enjoy it's wonderful position and comfortable accommodation as much as we do. Thank you again for your useful feedback which has all been actioned with immediate effect. Property Owner

  • "Very comfortable duplex apartment with modern kitchen and bathroom/shower room."

    The property was clean and provided all necessary conveniences. The welcome pack was very much appreciated after a long journey. Lovely area and close to amenities. All the local pubs are dog friendly. Our only issue was that the beach at Hope Cove was closed to dogs after 10 am so we had to travel to Thurlstone Beach which was a short drive away or you could walk along the coastal path to Thurlestone but please be aware the cliffs are eroding and there are sheer drops so to keep away from the cliff edges and keep dogs on a lead. Salcombe was a short drive away also with lots of shops and restaurants and very dog friendly too.

    Thank you Sandra for taking the time to leave feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and the welcome pack. Just a note for any future visits - harbour beach in Hope Cove is dog friendly year round, though dogs must be on a lead. We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Property Owner

  • "Lovely place in a very nice village."

    Nice clean property and the hamper was a lovely surprise. Would return to Hope Cove again. Only negative was shower in en suite leaked on main floor so did not use it as did not want water leaking downstairs.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your lovely feedback we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at paddler's Rest. The shower drainage has been addressed. We hope to welcome you back to Hope Cove soon. Property Owner

  • "Prior to our stay we saw a very bad review of the property which worried us None of it was true."

    The place was spotless, tastefully furnished and very comfortable. We and our dogs had a brilliant stay.

    Thank you so much for your feedback Jill. It is so lovely to see that guests enjoy their time in Paddlers Rest. We really appreciate you taking the time to comment. Glad to hear your four legged friends enjoyed it as much as ours does! Hope to welcome you back again soon. Property Owner

  • "This property is not a cottage."

    Although,the property was warm and well positioned for the area it had not been cleaned properly and the fridge was full of water. The hand held shower head was broken, the hair dryer glowed bright red when used (only once). There was a lack of toilet rolls and bin bags, something that could not be sorted out straight away due to Christmas closure’s. If we new this property was in an apartment block with noisy people staying in the property above us, we would have not booked our stay here.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are disappointed to hear that you had a few issues during your stay. We will of course pick up any cleanliness issues with the cleaner to make sure this does not happen in the future, we can only apologise that these bits were missed for your stay. Having looked at the wording on the website, we cannot see it described as a cottage, however we will go back through the description, in detail and amend anything, that we feel will make the listing clearer. We do hope that despite the matters you have raised you enjoyed your holiday in Hope Cove. Property Owner

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.
