Hope Cove,


Hope Cove,


Hope Cove is what the name implies: a beautiful village situated along the rugged South Devon coastline.

The Cottage Hotel enjoys a superb position, overlooking the picturesque harbour and cove, set in two and a half acres of shrubs and lawns which lead, via sloping footpaths, to the largest of two beaches, where you can bathe in safety. The hotel has 31 en suite bedrooms.

The Ireland family have run The Cottage since 1973 and provide a warm, personal service, whilst constantly updating the facilities. The Restaurant is renowned amongst visitors and locals alike. Locally caught crab, lobster and fish are on the menu and the house wines are truly special. The Cottage is popular with families - there is a games room and special high teas are available. Along this Heritage Coastline there are challenging walks affording superb views.

The area is famous for its unique flora and fauna, including the Nature Reserve at Slapton Ley. Many sporting activities are available nearby with ten golf courses within easy reach - the hotel having concessions at Bigbury, Thurlestone and Dartmouth.

WiFi connectivity is only available at present in the hotel's lounges.

We also own an eight-room bed and breakfast, the Tanfield, in the village which can be hired exclusively for breaks, friends and family gatherings, golfing weekends, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, etc.– excellent value for money.

The Cottage Hotel is open all year except January 2nd - February 6th inc.
