The property

This deceptively large, detached cottage rests on the fringes of Inner Hope Cove, within just a 5-minute downhill walk of the beach.

With reverse-level accommodation boasting lovely sea views, an elevated position and access to the South West Coast Path, this apartment is perfect for families, friends and couples alike.

The bright and spacious sitting room boasts two sumptuous sofas, matching armchairs and a large sliding glass door out to the sunny patio.

From here, you can access the well-equipped kitchen enjoying a large wooden table and glimpses from the window of the neighbouring valley.

If you wish to take yourself away from the group for some down time, the second lounge offers a cosy space to watch TV and warm your feet in front of the woodburning stove.

Adjacent to this, is the master bedroom adjoining a fully tiled en-suite shower room.

A twin room also rests on this floor, whilst a further two bedrooms are located on the ground floor.

In addition to the en-suite facilities, is a cloakroom and a colourful family bathroom enjoying a nautical theme.

Outside, a spacious terrace invites you to enjoy refreshing drinks as you linger over the views, whilst a sloping garden to the rear benefits a mature orchard, lush shrubbery and children’s swings.

Hope Cove is made up of two sandy beaches, Mouthwell Sands to the north and Harbour beach to the south, both easily accessible and well worth exploring.

Just a short drive will bring you to the hustle and bustle of Kingsbridge.

Those of you feeling particularly energetic can indulge in the many water sports available at the estuary.

Pubs, restaurants, cafés and shops line the town in an array of colour, serving local produce and gifts.

Discover trails along the South West Coast path and a plethora of wildlife within the South Devon AONB.

This charm-filled retreat offers a relaxing break in a lovely part of England.

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.
