    “The reviews undersold this accommodation.”

    We were pleased to see it clean and well appointed and even the kitchen was functional for us to eat and cook breakfasts. There were some minor features that should be dealt with by the owner. Some tiles missing in the kitchen and signs they were all loose. The bathroom bolt appeared to have been removed to prevent a child locking themselves it, but this left no means to lock the door. Fine for us but some would find this unacceptable. The washing machine works and is useful but the drying rack ...

    We were pleased to see it clean and well appointed and even the kitchen was functional for us to eat and cook breakfasts. There were some minor features that should be dealt with by the owner. Some tiles missing in the kitchen and signs they were all loose. The bathroom bolt appeared to have been removed to prevent a child locking themselves it, but this left no means to lock the door. Fine for us but some would find this unacceptable. The washing machine works and is useful but the drying rack is very small - only holding say 9 pairs of pants. A larger one could be provided at minimal cost. The curtains in the big bedroom were firmly fitted, but one bracket is not making contact at all with the rail. The right tilt turn window in the same room was not used as it seemed jammed jammed. The left one worked fine and was open on arrival. The water pressure was very low meaning shower and sink all give a mean flow. Not a big issue and they could be used - just if a pump could be fitted or a pumped shower? Otherwise OK you can get and stay clean which is the main thing. The timer for the hand rail seems unnecessary and should be replaced with a thermostat which would be silent and easy to tweak as needed. The timer mechanism is noisy at night with doors open as we like to have them. The immersion heating is un regulated so only the built in temperature limit prevents boiling water from the hot taps. A timer on this would be most welcome as the water is hot enough for washing up in 30mins. We used the kettle instead and left the immersion off. The welcome pack and dishwasher were a surprise and we used all. The parking needs a deft reversing skill that some may find issue with especially as passengers may then be left with a 7ft drop to avoid falling down as they leave and enter the car. Again not an issue for us but some would and have found it unacceptably risky - eg small children or elderly.

The property

A perfect choice for a seaside holiday, this well presented holiday home at West Park is conveniently positioned on the edge of the South Hams village of Hope Cove, five minutes walk from the pubs and restaurants that overlook the cove and the popular sandy beach, reputed to be one of the best on the South Coast.

A fishing village now more famous for landing crabs and lobster, Hope Cove was once a favourite haunt for smugglers and still retains all the intimacy and charm of its characterful past.

The area is also renowned for its unique flora and fauna with a nature reserve close by at Slapton Ley.

Hope Cove holds immense appeal for families who wish to enjoy a traditional beach holiday, children will have hours of fun building sandcastles and dams and exploring the rock pools for crabs and small fish.

The popular sailing resort of Salcombe lies just 2 miles away and for those keen to experience the dramatic beauty of this South Devon coastline on foot, follow the South West Coastal Path from the beach that will take you through Salcombe and Thurlestone and other coastal villages.

About the location

HOPE COVE

Salcombe 4.6 miles; Kingsbridge 5.1 miles

The picturesque and unspoiled village of Hope Cove lies in the sheltered curve of Bigbury Bay on Devon’s south coast. A choice destination for families, the two beaches offering soft sand and rock pools for sandcastle building and fishing for small crabs. The town remains a fishing village where crabs and lobsters are still landed, however it was once used by smugglers. Many ships have perished around the coast and the wrecks that lie beneath the waves make it a popular spot for divers. Above the beach there are a number of pubs and restaurants. The coastal footpath can be joined from here and leads towards Bigbury-on-sea in one direction and the coastal resort of Salcombe in the other.
