Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
It is full of character with illuminated inglenooks, beams and exposed stone walls combining delightful charm and a peaceful atmosphere with a spacious, comfortable and homely interior. Just a short distance from Hope Cove, there are beautiful views from the garden's terraced lawns out across the cliffs, sea and to the horizon beyond. The old fishing village of Hope Cove has a bit of everything for a good family holiday; two sandy beaches, large inn, restaurants, cream teas, excellent sweet and souvenir shop and is right on the South West Coastal path which meanders around the cliff tops in both directions to other beaches and villages.

The West Country region
Few areas of the UK, or even Europe, have a lure greater than beautiful South Devon. Dramatic Dartmoor gives way to rolling hills, wooded valleys and stunning coastline that never fails to leave visitors wishing they could stay just that little bit longer. While away your days in market towns and quaint villages that retain their tradition whilst now offering fine dining and excellent shopping, or leave the townships behind and head to any one of the outstanding sandy beaches that dot the South Devon coast. It's impossible not to fall in love with lazy, relaxed South Devon and it's otherworldly pace of life.
Hope Cove is two villages in one - Outer and Inner Hope. Inner Hope is a pretty little olde worlde Devon fishing village with a collection of thatched cob and stone cottages set around a tiny square, whereas Outer Hope hosts the local pub, the Hope and Anchor and the village shop which are situated opposite the beach. Both villages in fact have their own beautiful sandy beaches and are a delight, being popular for families with children, picnicking and generally enjoying this scenic spot.
