Set in an exclusive beachfront position Shippen House, Hope Cove, is a one-of-a-kind South Devon property by the sea. With stunning coastal vistas across the sandy beach and beyond, the house offers stylish self-catering accommodation in the most breath-taking of settings. Whether it’s waking up to the magnificent view of waves crashing on the shore immediately outside the window or watching family and friends enjoying the beach from the comfort of the homely sitting room, or the spacious, social kitchen dining room, there are so many reasons visitors keep returning to Shippen House. Whatever season you choose to visit, you’ll quickly realise Shippen is so much more than just a holiday home, it truly is an unforgettable seaside escape where memories are forged for a lifetime. Each time of year has its own unique charms; summer offers a bustling and vibrant sea side atmosphere with boats, ice cream, sandcastles, and laughter; autumn’s golden sun inspires long coastal walks, slow cooked stews, nostalgic board games and the sharing of stories around the kitchen table; winter brings dramatic scenery, crashing waves, woolly hats and hot chocolate beside the roaring log fire; and with spring comes new life on the shoreline, bobbing seal heads in the harbour, birdsong in the air and the peace to lose yourself in a good novel. Within the traditional fishing village of Hope Cove there are two welcoming local pubs, a post office / small local store and an art gallery, all within minutes from Shippen House. There are two sandy beaches to enjoy which benefit from the shelter provided by the headland of Bolt Tail. The village is perfectly situated as a base from which to explore the South Hams being under a 15-minute drive from Salcombe, Kingsbridge, Bantham and Thurlestone.

Would have been nice if the rubbish bins outside the back door had been emptied as these were already over flowing upon arrival.
