We just spent a week in Port and had the most incredible weather. The house is wonderful and the views are truly fantastic. We have a 5 and 3 year old and they have had an amazing holiday - the lovely safe beautiful beach just 2 mins walk from the house. Perfect! ps the sofas aren't nearly as bad as the previous review!!
Port has an outstanding view and generally is very nicely finished apart from one thing - extremely uncomfortable sofa's in the living room. There are two sofa's which are elderly sofa beds and the cushions on them are very thin so the frame digs in to you when you sit down. We found the only way around this was to use some spare bedding under the cushions but this did not solve the problem. We longed for a couple of comfortable chairs to sit and enjoy the spectacular view. We actually went out every day because it was so uncomfortable to stay in and this really impacted on our enjoyment of what is an exceptionally nice property and would have otherwise warranted 5 stars. S. Denham, British Columbia (booked by friend in UK).
What a wonderful place ! View from the lounge amazing. Weather was mixed but we managed to sit out on the terrace a couple of times listening to the waves and birdsong. Even on the less favourable weather days it was lovely to look out and the changing scene. Watching people walking their dogs and even some mad people swimming.
Being able to walk down the hill to the pub was great.
I now know why it is booked up all year !
If you want a relaxing week away from it all then this is the place to come. Hope Cove is everything you need for a relaxing seaside holiday from a bygone age!! Beautiful beach, lovely walks and not too far from larger towns, Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Totnes if you need a shopping fix. The apartment itself is in an amazing position to sit and watch the sea and the sunsets and covers just about everything you need for a week away( even down to a spare dog bowl if you forget) The weather wasn't amazing but on our last day we made it along the coastal path to the next bay and the welcoming beachside cafe. A memorable break and if they can fit us in (as I understand it's gets really booked up even through the winter months) we will definitely be back.
We have just returned from our final coastal walk of the week, from Hope Cove to Bolt Head and back across Bolberry Down. No need to take the car as there are wonderful walks from the cottage, with spectacular scenery all around. Today we had blue skies and sunshine all the way. Now I am enjoying the fantastic view from Port, with evening sun streaming in through the windows. Looking forward to an amazing sunset! Port is comfortable, clean, cosy and well equipped: everything we look for in a relaxing holiday. I highly recommend it if you love walking by the coast, as we do. Many thanks to the owners for the warm welcome!
Fantastic location and a beautiful place to stay. Lovely little touches to make the stay even more enjoyable. It's the first time my husband has been so relaxed during a holiday and didn't have itchy feet feeling he had to tick off the lonely planet itinerary. Mainly down to the spectacular views and sunsets and home from home accommodation. Thank you!! I would recommend Port and will be back. We had 4 adults and two very young children and we had everything we needed. Fantastic!
