Great location and a great property. We only moved the car once all week as walking from the property is really great.
The cottage was warm , cosy and we really felt comfortable and is also in an excellent quiet location. We really enjoyed our stay and would return at sometime in the future. Think the cottage in general is however needing a little care and attention .
We did enjoy our stay. The house looked impressive internally and was certainly spacious. However, there were limitations, noted above, which impacted on our comfort and some safety concerns all of which could be remedied easily and at no great cost.
Lovely lovely barn, we had a great stay in this wonderful house. X
Kitchen was well equipped. Would be nice to have a BBQ available for use. Also, the cottage needs an OS map of the area where the cottage is and include Hope Cove.
Loved our stay eventually found the public footpath down to Hope cove also the road to the property was not as bad as I thought very quiet and peaceful would definitely stay again
Yes we did enjoy our stay. A well designed barn location in lovely location.
Booked in here for a week. The converted barn is lovely clean, comfortable, good beds and bathrooms on ground floor. Lounge and kitchen/ dinning area upper floor spacious and well equipped. Ice machine great. Outdoor seating area good nice views. Maybe umbrella needed for very warm days and barbecue. Great walk along foot path in to Hope Cove. Be aware narrow lane leading to property but well worth the journey.
The Old Inn - Malborough
(Less than a mile)
Had a lovely lunch here. We had sandwiches, chips and also the homemade lasagne. Very dog friendly and the staff were an absolute delight, so friendly and welcoming. Would definitely visit again
Eaten supper here twice in January / February 2018 - local Dexter steak and chips both times as it was so good & the wine was excellent too. Great atmosphere with the cosy open fire, welcoming staff and comfortable decor / furnishings. Great to see the old place back on form at last.
Very friendly pub & excellent food.

Andrea delivered the most wonderful produce for the start of our holiday. Everything was locally sourced, we especially loved the Crab and BBQ box, the food was so fresh and waiting for us on arrival to our holiday home. Amazing service, I would recommend this to everyone coming down to the South Hams!

Great pub! Massive improvement on the last time we came before the renovation. On sunny days we say out on the balcony looking out to sea, then when it rained we cosied up inside. The place is huge and the food was really good too. We ended up in there almost every day!
Lovely food and family friendly.

A very welcoming place with good food and very pleasant staff

Such a fabulous place, wonderful hospitality, stunning views and amazing food. Thoroughly enjoyed it here
Restricted menu but the food was excellent quality and value with super service. Recommended.
Great food and just the right amount of choice, Great service. Thanks
OK. Same generic menu as other St Austell pub/restaurants. Huge - caters for the masses. Fish and chips were fine.
Great food, friendly staff and a gorgeous view.
Excellent food and drinks, friendly and efficient service, and most importantly dog friendly throughout the building. Ate there most nights during our stay in Hope Cove
Really friendly staff who are donating all their tips this month to charity. When you visit look up to read the jokes written on the beams. They may make you groan but you will have to smile if only at everybody's reactions.
Nice local pub in a lovely location. Good choice of beer and wine.
Very friendly staff - happy to recommend and very dog friendly
Plenty of room and helpful staff, although lacks a bit of atmosphere in my opinion. My partner loved his fish and chips however I had the seafood curry and although it was very tasty with a Thai style sauce the quality of the seafood let it down. The mussels were tiny and vastly inferior to others I had eaten that week. There is quite a lot of very good food in the area and although my other half was happy, I wouldn't rush back.

Had a brilliant ride on the RIB. Saw seals out near Start Point and the remains of the lost village of Hallsands. Good information and great fun on the boat. Suitable for kids and adults
We had a brilliant time on the fast rib with Sea and Shore. Great fun and an amazing way to see the coastline.
Hope Cove is the perfect name for this inspiringly beautiful little corner of the South Hams. Divided into two areas, Inner Hope and Outer Hope, both linked by a footpath and road, and each with their own respective beaches, Outer Hope is also home to the Hope and Anchor Pub and a collection of shops and cafes, while Inner Hope is a quieter more residential area. At Outer Hope you will find Mouthwell Sands, a sandy cove scattered with pebbles and backed by rocky cliffs with a slipway and steps from the road down to the beach. It’s a popular spot with surfers, despite being a fairly small beach, and watching the sunset from here is a beautiful way to spend the evening. There is a car park by the beach where charges apply so make sure you have cash on you as you arrive, and dogs are permitted out of season with restrictions applying from 1st May until 30th September. Meanwhile, Harbour Beach is a short stroll away and bridges the two villages of Inner and Outer Hope. It is a wide sandy beach that’s perfect for rock pooling and sand castle building, and there is a harbour wall that makes for spectacular crashing waves in the winter as well as a tempting spot from which to jump into the water in the summer at high tide. Just make sure you don’t jump in when the water is low as it’s too shallow. Harbour Beach is also an ideal spot from which to paddle board or kayak across the bay, with the really intrepid amongst us pottering all the way along the coast to Thurlestone and Burgh Island. Finally, at Inner Hope itself there is a small sandy beach that’s accessible down a slipway. This is home to the old lifeboat station and is a quiet spot that marks a juncture along the coast path from Bolberry. Speaking of which, you can walk either way along the coast from Hope Cove, either towards South Milton Sands, Thurlestone and Bantham, or towards Salcombe. If you are making a day of it then why not start at the Winking Prawn at North Sands and stop at Hope Cove for lunch?

Absolutely love this place! Perfect for families, safe swimming and and lots of rock pools to explore. Our kids were down there every day. Can't wait to come back next year. Mrs Sutton
Beautiful coves and pretty cottages
A really pretty place with all you need fir a relaxing holiday, beautiful views and lovely coast walks
Lovely and well worth a visit.
Friendly , beautiful - everything you could want in a holiday spot - didn't matter what the weather was like ,plenty to do and see .
A beautiful coastal village with two sandy beaches. The village centre has some pretty thatched cottages and there is a good choice of places to eat most with sea views. We ate most nights at the Hope and Anchor and they are dog friendly. We enjoyed walking along the coastal paths with fine views from both sides of the village. Hope Cove is a good base to explore South Devon with Salcombe, Kingsbridge and Totnes within easy reach.
Breathtaking views, very quiet village, very peaceful.
A really nice walk over the hill tops from Thurlestone, Hope Cove is pretty but a bit busier than other places we visited. Lovely views.
Lovely location, beautiful beaches and some great places to eat!
Well worth the walk along the coastal path,stunning views and 2 nice pubs for lunch
Love it. And it's a great base for this part of Devon. Excellent coastal/cliff walking.
Soar Mill Cove
Nestled between the cliffs in the undulating Devon landscape, Soar Mill Cove is something of a hidden gem, only really accessible on foot. The easiest way reach it by walking down from the Soar Mill Cove Hotel, where there is a car park, or if you’re making a day of your jaunt, why not stroll along the South West Coast Path from Bolberry or even from Salcombe? The beach is a mix of sand and stone and has seen a fair amount of weathering in storms in recent years, which has merely added to its character and charm. There are no facilities in the immediate vicinity unless you wander up to the hotel. Dogs are welcome throughout the year at Soar Mill Cove, and it’s definitely worth the effort to visit!

Lovely secluded cove.
South Milton Sands
A long stretch of sand broken only by the South Milton Ley freshwater reed bed, South Milton Sands is a dramatic beach that’s exposed to the elements, making it something of a chameleon throughout the year. Rugged in its beauty, there’s nothing quite like watching the sun set at this beach behind an iconic rock archway in the water; it really is spectacular, particularly if you do so over dinner in the summer months from The Beach Café, a small but perfectly formed restaurant and café that’s perched just above the sand. If you want a table inside then you really do have to book this one, but if the weather is fine then eating outside is a joy. The beach is sandy and popular on windy days with kite surfers and windsurfers, but in calmer weather is perfect for a summer swim. Dogs are welcome at South Milton throughout the year, there’s a National Trust car park by the beach which costs from £5 for the day, £3 after 4pm or is free for National Trust members. There are also toilets nearby. It’s also worth knowing that in the summer months lifeguards are in situ from 6th July until 8th September, keeping everyone safe in the sun, sea and sand. When the weather is less conducive to sitting and admiring the view, South Milton is perfectly placed for a stroll along the coast path either towards Hope Cove and around towards Salcombe if you fancy making a day of it, or in the opposite direction you can walk towards Bantham and Bigbury on Sea. It’s a wonderful place to explore and watch Devon’s wildlife in all its glory.

Fantastic sandy beach for everything, rock pools, building sandcastles body boarding.
Fabulous dog friendly beach with amazing views
A glorious beach! Dog friendly, sandy, rock pools at the far end. Parking handy, spectacular views - the stone arch beats Durdle Door in my mind..... Delightful. Loved it.
Amazin beach - especially when the tide goes out and all the rock pools come out to play!!! Shame about the coarse 'sand', but that can't be helped; just get some shingle shoes. If you want sand go to North Sands or Bantham!
South Sands, Salcombe

A beautiful sandy beach that is superb for children as you have to go out quite a way before the water gets deep. Water sports available. Access is via very narrow lanes so be prepared to reverse and parking is very limited.
North Sands, Salcombe
The first beach as you walk along the Cliff Road out of Salcombe, North Sands sits in a valley and is a sandy horseshoe shaped beach that’s expansive at low tide. Thanks to its shape and location, it’s extremely popular in the summer because there’s plenty of space to set up camp for the day with buckets, spades and fishing nets in tow for avid marine biologists and sand castle connoisseurs. The beach has a fresh water stream running through it from the top of the valley, which, aside from providing hours of entertainment for accompanying dogs and a marvellous place to wash the sand off your feet, also means that the beach is largely wet sand, so don’t forget to take something to sit on if you’re heading there for the day. Popular with swimmers, despite the chilly water, North Sands provides a wonderful view out of the mouth of the Salcombe estuary and into the deep blue yonder so, for keen photographers, it’s ideal. If the weather is right then it’s a favourite amongst body boarders or even surfers on choppier days, and it’s a great place to take the paddle boards and kayaks if you happen to have them. Dogs are allowed on the beach all year round, unlike many of the beaches in the area, there are toilets over the road and there’s a car park with charges from £1 throughout the year. The cherry on top of this beautiful location is The Winking Prawn café and restaurant that’s right next to the beach. Open all year round they serve everything from breakfast, lunch and dinner to coffee, tea and cake, and in the summer they provide a barbecue in the garden overlooking the sea. It is popular though so leave a little time to queue for that Salcombe Dairy honeycomb ice cream in the height of summer!
