“Fantastic for couples get away”
Reviewed 27 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Fabulous place to stay, whatever the time of year. Beautifully and tastefully decorated and well equipped. The owners could not be more helpful. Nice places to eat and places to visit. Would not hesitate to recommend this little gem and especially loved the walks around the bay, stunning views.

Thanks, glad that it lived up to your expectations!
With the South West Coastal Path going by the front door, we do have some amazing walks. As you say - they can be enjoyed at any time of the year.
Thanks,
Caroline

“Lovely apartment, perfect location, great landlady”

In between booking this trip and actually arriving our world was turned upside down by a medical issue that could have been seriously life changing. So when we finally got to the apartment we were fearful of our future, stressed and tired. We very nearly cancelled. We are so glad we went through with the trip.

The apartment is perfect for two people who just want to get away from the world for a week. It's quirky (I still can't figure out the wall hanging with the shells), welcoming and very comfortable!

Outside the front door is a green, to the left is the tiny harbour, and to the right is a small sandy beach.

The bedroom is amply large enough, and the bed was very comfortable indeed.

When holidaying in the UK we carry a heater with us, because we often find that rooms are cold. We didn't need the heater - The whole apartment was as warm as we could have wished (even on some seriously cold days). The kitchen facilities and utensils have everything you need to cook a 3 course meal if you feel so inclined. If like me you are a coffee snob, bring your own ground coffee, but leave the cafetiere behind - There are at least two of them in the kitchen drawers.

The bathroom has a bath with a "rainfall" shower that is perfect after a long walk along the coast. The WiFi worked well in most areas of the apartment.

The location really could not have been better. Hope Cove is divided into Inner and Outer. The apartment is in Outer Hope Cove. There were plenty of people around when we were there, but neither the harbour area or the beach were crowded. The local pub, the Hope and Anchor, served good food in large portions and some excellent local Ales, but the best thing about the Hope and Anchor is that it is about 20 seconds walk away from the apartment, so I could wander down to the pub, grab a pint, take it back to the apartment and return the glass the next day - Civilised or what?

I must mention the post office, which is opposite the pub. If you like croissants and/or pain au chocolat, get up early in the morning and go to the post office for 8:00am. You'll need to leave the apartment at 7:59:40 to get there on the dot (OCD?). At the post office you will find beautifully fresh and warm croissants and pains au chocolat that really do melt in the mouth. If you can't manage an early start every day, you can order the night before. The loaves, although pre-sliced, were also surprisingly good.

Make sure you take walking clothes with you as there are many lovely walks in the area. Note to kilt wearers: From personal experience, high on the cliffs where the wind can blow quite hard you may find you have some "Marilyn Monroe" moments!

Note to drivers: If you have a choice, a small car is better than a large one in this part of Devon. Our little convertible was about as wide as you would want on the local roads. You'll be doing plenty of reversing when you meet traffic coming the other way.

Parking: There is a pay and display car park about 40 seconds walk from the apartment. The £4 daily charge is reasonable, but if you leave your car there overnight, you will have to get there at 9:00 to get a new daily ticket. If you are even a few minutes late, you risk a hefty PCN. The owner recognises that this is unreasonable and she tells me that she is arranging to install ANPR, which should result in a more flexible regime. If you don't want to get up early every day, there is plenty of on-street parking just outside Outer Hope Cove. If you park on the road to Inner Hope Cove, just above the Cottage Hotel (quite old fashioned hotel with excellent food and service), you can walk down the steep hill past the hotel to the apartment - The walk back up the hill next day will give your heart plenty of exercise...

At a rotten time in our life, this was truly a haven. You'll love it!

Glyn, thank you very much for such a comprehensive review! It's wonderful that you have taken the time to specifically highlight all of the benefits of Hope Cove, of which there are many! I loved the fact that you got your beer each night from The Hope and Anchor, and returned the glass the next day!!! We had to have a 'doggy bag meal' from there once when a grandchild was ill - great service always.
You were very considerate guests, who we would welcome back at any time. It's gratifying to hear that you felt Sandy Nook to be a little haven at a stressful time. Thank you,
Caroline

“Prime location, top quality accommodation”
Reviewed 14 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We spent the week in Sandy Nook and well as you walk in you just relax! The cottage is just done out to the highest standard. Caroline has done a brilliant job and has made Sandy Nook feel very spacious, comfortable and luxurious. The location is just stunning, not only are you mere steps away from the beach you have Salcombe near by but believe me you won't want to venture far, with pub, cafe and shop around the corner, your beautiful cottage, lovely beach and gorgeous hill walks you will be quite content staying put! Thank you Caroline for having such fabulous communication and flexibility and just for creating such a wonderful place.

“What a gem!”
Reviewed 26 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

A lovely week away with my husband staying at the smaller cottage called Sandy Nook next to The Moorings! What can I say, just lovely!

The cottage sleeps two but felt so spacious and modern. Everything is done to a very high standard, the super king size bed just was amazing complimented by the top of the range super cotton bedding, just nice touches throughout.

Hope Cove itself is a lovely little spot right on the sea. The cottage front door opened out to a lovely harbour type Sandy beach a few steps to the left, we spent many an evening sat with a bottle of wine watching the sunset and waves crash in! There is also a more family type Sandy beach to the right with life guards and also great sunsets! There are two pubs also within a one minute walk!

Nice 2 mile walk up the coast path to Thurleston beach, which is great for sunbathing and swimming! Couple of nice trendy beach hut eateries along the coast path too!

Caroline the owner is fab! Couldn't do enough to assist with any queries. I didn't get to see the other cottage next door properly but it looks amazing from the outside with open decking looking over to the beaches!

Thanks Kate, a pleasure to have such lovely guests as you both were! Thanks for the technical tips re TV etc! We do get some amazing sunsets here, regularly too!
Well done for taking the coastal walk to Thurlestone beach, wonderful beach cafe there, worth the walk. Our 2 pubs in the village are great too.
I am glad that you found Sandy Nook spacious and comfortable.
You are welcome back at any time.

Large, spacious, and stylishly decorated accommodation with the largest most comfortable bed we have ever slept on. Open plan kitchen/ diner and sitting room. The kitchen is fully equipped and even has a washing machine. Centrally located in this stunning village with excellent walks on the coast path, literally a stones throw from one of Hope Coves two beautiful sandy beaches. Perfectly suitable for swimming as the water quality is rated 'excellent' on the Marine Conservation Society web page. We ate out most nights as the two local pubs served such great food - the crab sandwiches at the Hope were delicious. Free fast WIFI. Dog friendly. The local shop stocks everything you may need and even has a Post Office.

Thank you for a generous comprehensive review. So glad that the accomodation suited you so well. The super king-size bed is a treat!
The information from the Marine Conservation Society stating the water quality as excellent, is very important to us here in Hope Cove. Sometimes in the hot weather there is a smell from the dry seaweed, that people mistake as sewage! This confirms the water as totally clean!
Thank you.
