Absolutely lovely.

April 2019

We couldn't have wished for a better place to stay for our trip to Hope Cove. Marina and Pete have created a wonderfully relaxing space with everything you could possibly need. Lovely nautical decor and art make it more cosy and welcoming. We were out and about a lot, but in the morning it was rainy we were happy to stay in the flat and relax and enjoy the amazing views. Five stars! We highly recommend this accommodation.

April 2019

We have just left our third visit to Tops’l and it has been yet again one of the best breaks we have had. We bough our dog Albert with us and the flat has absolutely everything you could possibly need. It was immaculate when we arrived, the bed is so comfy as is the sofa. Everything to us is perfect. We love the area so much. Hope cove is so stunning and so central to access a lot of places and beaches ect. We cannot wait to return.

October 2018

Tops’l is a beautiful flat, situated just a 5 minute walk from Hope Cove. All mod cons including a lovely kitchen, bathroom and extremely comfortable beds! The personal touches in the flat make it a real home from home. The view out of the lounge window is breathtaking. Suitable for couples or a family with pretty beaches and wonderful coastal walks within minutes. The small village of Hope has 2 fabulous and very friendly pubs ( both serving delicious food!) a well stocked post office and hotels open to non residents. All in all a perfect location! We will definitely be back and can highly recommend. Even the weather was perfect.

Nice , spacious flat, light decor. Ideal for us. ( middle aged couple) .

August 2018

Had a lovely stay thank you, we know the area well and our own family house - Double Gates, up the road was already booked by Toad Hall and we were last minute so had to stay here. Lovely light, clean and airy. Great to see some evidence of eco/environmental cleaning. Would be good to see the apartment and other properties in Hope cove becoming part of the Green business Tourism Scheme. Didnt see or read anywhere obvious to put recycling or other rubbish.

August 2018

A great apartment in a fab location. There were comfy beds and everything needed for a super holiday. The TV box was an unexpected bonus over the damp weekend. We had a brilliant time and would definitely return.

July 2018

The property was clean, well equipped and perfect location to explore South Devon.

July 2018

We had a fantastic week in this delightful apartment - the morning sun shining in the lounge windows was a real wow!

June 2018

Second time we have stayed at tops'l. Both times we had a fantastic stay.

June 2018

We enjoyed our stay very much and although we had some minor problems the way they were addressed by Toad Hall Cottages was excellent and so promptly. Thank you for a super service.

May 2018

The flat was perfect, just what we wanted, very peaceful and quiet, and the view across the valley was great and we now know more about sheep movements than we ever thought we'd need! The 2 pubs by the beach, the Hope and Anchor and The Cove provided us with all our meals and weren't anywhere near as expensive as around here with good choice. We particually liked their fish selection. We had good access to both Salcombe and Dartmouth and on both occasions went there and used their Park and Ride schemes. We also walked the local bit of the South West Coast Path, right and Northwards to Bantham and the Sloop Inn Pub, and left and Southwards to the Ocean Restaurant at Bolberry. There are some seriously steep hills to climb on both walks but with the pub and restaurant as the final destination made it worthwhile.

April 2018

We had a wonderful time at Tops'l last week. We felt at home from the moment we walked through the door. Our hosts made us feel more than welcome. A wonderfully equipped and decorated holiday apartment in beautiful surroundings and just a short walk from all the local amenities. The perfect location to get away from it all and unwind at your own pace. Ideally situated between several other larger towns with picturesque walks and a beach right on your doorstep. Highly recommended and would definitely stay there again.

April 2018

Yes, lovely flat. Wardrobe in the twin room would be helpful.

October 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tops'l. Everywhere was very clean and the apartment was very well equipped. The views were outstanding and having a very nice pub within a 5 minute walk was very convenient. We walked along the coastal path most days - it is a beautiful part of the country.. We would definitely recommend Tops'l to our friends.

August 2017

We love Hope Cove and hadn't stayed 'this far out' before, which I appreciate is a very relative scale! Property has brilliant aspects and views and out Dog, Hope, loved seeing and hearing the sheep!! I'd recommend the property for a small family although our two (plus dog) were a little too much for the place, and is the only reason we'd probably not return on our next Hope Cove holiday. Thanks to the owners for the thoughtful messages and privision of picnic table n parasol in front garden too!

Great that you had a wonderful holiday and sorry that you found the cottage a little small for your party. Next time ask the booking team to put you through to our property manager who looks after Hope Cove and he can advise whether any cottage you intend to book will best suit your requirements.

We had an amazing time. It is a beautiful part of the World and we were so lucky with the weather. We didn't do as much sight seeing as planned, spent most days on the beach making the most of the sunshine. Our daughter loved it, in her words "I want this holiday to last a long time". Thank you so much for letting us stay there we would very much love to return".

April 2017

We have just returned from our second stay at topsl in hope cove and what an amazing time we have had! The apartment is situated in an ideal location we did lots of lovely costal walks then came back to hope cove and ate at the pubs! Can fully reccomend topsl!!!

March 2017

We really enjoyed our mini-break in Tops'l, there are lovely views of the sea and countryside, the beds are comfy and the kitchen is well equipped. The apartment is bright, clean and airy. V Murray - Bedfordshire
