The cottage itself is well equipped and tastefully decorated.
The bed, duvet and bed linen are top quality.
The owner is friendly and helpful.
We will return!!
A great base for walking, or beaching , this cosy cottage is an ideal location for either. 20 steps up the road are 2 very good pubs, with a takeaway service.
For us, we took our 2dogs , and had 3 wonderful coastal walks .
Parking is an issue , when you need £ 4.00 a day in the local car park , but you can
park further out on the road if you don't mind a short walk.
This apartment has everything two people need for a relaxing break,plus it is dog friendly.
From the outside it doesn't look very big, but when you open the door and step inside you have a very comfortable apartment.
The kitchen has everything you need to cook a simple breakfast to an evening meal.
The bedroom has a large comfortable bed and plenty of wardrobe space.
The bathroom is off the bedroom and has a lovely shower.
The lounge is comfortable and there is wifi in the apartment as well.
The location is right in the centre of the village. Everything you need is within a short walk, shop, post office, bar,restaurant and two lovely sandy beaches.
We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend Sandy Nook.
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.
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!
