Small cove with quite a few eating places. Had excellent crab sandwich in pub. Lovely walks along coastal path, beach and small car park, so need to get here early!

One of my favourite locations in South Devon. Hope Cove is a timeless sea side village that has kept its traditions and continues to be a great view to visit. Highly recommend.

So worth a visit if you are visiting Devon! It is small and very stunning! Parking is available but fairly limited but you will be able to find somewhere to park! Take change as parking machine does not accept cards.

Sea was freezing, no life guard. The sand was more like mud and was squelchy. The beach was covered in sea weed! Literally covered! Lots of paddle boats and canoes. Quite boring

This has been one of favourite beaches, which is why we were disappointed to find it very smelly today and not as lovely as usual. We had a great walk though from Sour Mill Cove to Hope Cove, very beautiful.

There's some local galleries in Salcombe, lots of shops to browse and lovely cafes and pubs dotted about. Head to south sands and air in the bar watching the waves crash or maybe head out to Dartmouth for a steamtrain ride... More

We went to the smaller of the two pubs the Cove and found it great with good food and competitive prices. The Hope and Anchor was always full but seemed a bit posh for us! None of the establishments in Hope Cove provide... More
