Hope Cove Heads for a Long Weekend of Jolly Japery

There’s something simmering in the coastal village of Hope Cove, with talk of song, dance, exuberance and mirth, and maybe the odd firework or three.


Hope Cove Weekend: Friday August 25th to Monday August 28th

Back for another action-packed year with more rib-tickling events than you could shake a lumpy length of driftwood at, Hope Cove Weekend is on its merry way!

This free festival, crammed into a bank holiday weekend in the dizzy heights of a Devonshire summer, has become one of South Devon’s most anticipated jamborees with a little something for the whole family to enjoy.

If you’re staying in South Devon for your ‘holibobs’, and have got some time to spare, why not pop down to the coast and join the party. Enjoy the spectacular views towards Bigbury Bay and the clifftop walks that embrace the breathtaking South West peninsular.


Discover Hope Cove, the village by the sea….

The seaside village of Hope Cove is set on the glorious South Devon coastline and is home to some of our finest holiday cottages. Sheltered by the dramatic headland of Bolt Tail, the village is historically divided into two communities, Inner Hope and Outer Hope, both with their own beautiful sandy beaches.


Toad Hall Cottages boasts a long list of holiday venues in this gem of a location. Here are a few to help capture your imagination…

With breathtaking views of Bigbury Bay, Beachcomber Cottage, as its name would suggest, is only yards from the beach. This gorgeous thatched cottage has been fully refurbished to an exceptionally high standard and can sleep up to eight guests, making it ideal for large families or groups.

A beautiful cottage, very stylishly furnished and in a stunning location. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


4 West Park is a stylish maisonette that’s only a short walk from Hope Cove’s popular beaches. With fabulous views of the South Hams countryside, this spacious seaside dwelling is also one of our many South Devon holiday cottages that is dog-friendly.

Wonderful cottage in a brilliant location. Absolutely nothing that could be improved, definitely one of the best places that we have stayed at in the West Country. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


Tucked away on a quiet lane is Sea Quest, a spacious beach house that’s within walking distance of this popular fishing village. Its raised garden-side decking is perfect for alfresco dining and offers gorgeous countryside views towards the crystal clear waters of Bigbury Bay.

We had a lovely time in a great location! Plenty of beach, walks and places to eat. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


Seabrook is a stylish holiday home with an open plan and contemporary feel. Here, you can open up the patio doors and enjoy the stunning views beyond the lawned garden. Hope Cove’s sandy beaches and wonderful pubs are all within strolling distance.

Seabrook is lovely; great location, five minutes from the beach, with comfortable furnishings in a light and bright building. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
