Hope Cove

  • Hope Cove is a natural harbour, and as such provides two of the prettiest beaches in all of the South West.

  • Inner and Outer Hope benefit from a great location just 2 miles outside Salcombe, with Kingsbridge within a 20 minute drive. Visitors can also take the coastal path to Thurlestone, Bantham or the beautiful Bolberry Down.

  • In the centre of Outer Hope you will find the village shop, local pub, Beachcomber Cafe and the newly opened cafe bar The Cove.

  • For a real treat, why not make the morning walk over the cliffs to The Beach House at South Milton Sands for breakfast and a swim at one of the region's most stunning locations.

South Devon

  • Whether you’re kite surfing, paddleboarding or wild swimming, South Devon provides fantastically scenic opportunities for trying out all sorts of adventure sports.

  • Relax on a South Devon Railway steam train ride up the picturesque Dart valley from Buckfastleigh to Totnes.

  • Walk the miles of stunning South West Coast Path with your four-legged friend, stopping off in quaint villages and deserted coves.

  • Sailors love Dartmouth and Salcombe, but there are plenty of shops and pubs for the landlubbers.


  • Visit the moors and tors of the National Parks: Dartmoor dominates the heart of the county whilst Exmoor hugs the North Devon coast.

  • Devon boasts Britain’s Ocean City, Plymouth, steeped in seafaring history, or for a spot of retail therapy why not visit historic Exeter.

  • You’ll feel closer to nature whilst in Devon, but if you fancy a more exotic experience, try Paignton Zoo or the National Marine Aquarium for great family days out.

  • Explore the quaint villages, miles of beaches and walk the coast path in South Devon, making sure you stop off for a cream tea en route!

Property reviews for 1 Coastguard Cottage

Rated 4/5 based on 1 reviews

The cafetiere at Coastguard cottages does not work properly and the toilet roll holder upstairs is about to fall off wall otherwise everything was excellent, would recommend the cottage to friends, proximity to sea was the best thing for us.
