LOCATION The village of Hope Cove is nestled in the curve of Bigbury Bay. With clusters of charming thatched former fisherman's cottages, clean sandy beaches and several Inns and hotels, it has a lot to offer. The village joins National Trust administered coastline, which provides miles of wonderful cliff walks to Salcombe in the South and Bantham in the North.  

DESCRIPTION This stunning two bedroom detached grade II listed cottage believed to be built in the late 1700s, has to be seen to be fully appreciated. Brimming with original character features including wooden beams, exposed stone work and ledge and brace doors.

The property has a good-sized living room complete with exposed stone fireplace and log burner. From here the staircase leads upstairs to the two bedrooms, the master is a generous size with built in storage and there is also a bunk room and family bathroom.

To the rear of the property is now the dining room and kitchen, although this area originally served as a village shop. The kitchen has some lovely features including an Everhot electric range and Creel hanging airer. The garden can also be accessed from the kitchen via a stable door.

Along with the cottage there is a generous sized south facing garden, mainly laid to lawn with a 13ft x 14ft boat store / workshop complete with electricity, there is a further outbuilding currently used as a log store, beside which is a separate W/C. The garden is surrounded by substantial hedging providing privacy.

Leading from the garden, is a path to The Chalet, which has the look of a traditional beach hut with wood cladding and pastel blue accents. The Chalet which was formerly a post office, is now a brilliant self-contained one bedroom annex, complete with kitchenette and shower room. It is ideal for use as a secondary income source or perfect as ancillary accommodation to the main cottage.

The current owners have had the property for seventeen years and in this time, have completed a range of refurbishment work, including comprehensive work on The Chalet in 2005, including adding a large quantity of insulation. Maintenance work has also been carried out to the thatch on the cottage which was completely re done in 2008.

The cottage is approximately 150 yards flat walk from Hope Cove beach and slip way. There is also private off-road parking at the property for 2 cars.
