We loved our stay at the cottage. Excellent facilities. Lots of space. We loved spending time at the games and snooker room. The location is beautiful and we enjoyed some amazing local walks. Would highly recommend and consider staying again if returning to the area. Thank you

We had a wonderful time and apart from the above problems thoroughly enjoyed our time in the house and the facilities on the site.Hope Cove had everything needed for a seaside holiday from 9+ Years to grandparents in their 70's.! Loved the indoor pool and snooker table. The site was very well maintained by the caretaker. Hope to return.

April 2018

Our 3rd holiday in a row to this area but the first time to this beautiful house-we will be back again! We have had a lovely peaceful holiday. Our Easter Egg hunt in the garden was lovely luckily the weather was fine. We had a day trip to Dartmoor stopping at Two Bridges for a nice walk, Tavistock and then the Standing Stones, visited the Sea Life Centre in Plymouth which is fab as is the fish and chips at Rockfish. We can't fault our holiday.

January 2018
