Another lovely stay at Kittiwake. Upperdeck has everything you need for a relaxing comfortable holiday in beautiful Hope Cove. So close to the wonderful beaches and coastal path walks. There are several great places to eat. Sue and David are very welcoming hosts.

I must of been to Kittiwake about 10 times, I love it so much, it's like a home from home and as soon as I arrive I feel comforted. The bed is the comfiest bed I've ever slept in and Sue and Dave are delightful. One of the stays we did a crab and lobster workshop with Dave and it was so much fun! The sea is a 3 min walk also, what more could you ask for!

Kittiwake is in a brilliant location, just 2 minutes walk from the beach (great for making the most of the sun when it's out). It is the top floor of a large house, with the owners on the ground floor (using a separate entrance), and there are loads of children's books, toys, games etc for the times when the Devon weather isn't so beach friendly: if you have small children the only toys you need to bring from home are beach toys!

Hope Cove is a great place to base your South Hams holiday. Enjoyed Hope cove itself, Thurlestone Beach, Salcombe, Burgh Island and Kingsbridge. The house is fantastic for an extended family. Lovely sea view, very peaceful spot 2 minutes from the coastal path. Sue organised a lobster evening and made a fantastic lobster pot for us to take home. Great spot, great place , great break. Thanks Sue. We will meet again

Kittiwake is amazing value for money especially for 2 guests. Everything is provided for a relaxing and comfortable stay. The bed is blissful. There are so many interesting books that we could happily spend time indoors but we were lucky with the weather so they mainly went unopened. We were surprised how busy Hope Cove was for the time of year, best to plan ahead and prebook restaurants. Thank you Sue for a wonderful holiday in one of my favourite places.

Previously stayed here for New Year in 2018 and returned for New Year 2020. Once again we couldn't fault anything about our stay. Accommodation is absolutely spot on for our family including our working cocker spaniel Alfie. Everyone had their own bathroom which they enjoyed! There is plenty of crockery, glasses and cooking utensils - in fact there is absolutely everything you could think of including the kitchen sink! Due to locality and not specific to this property, wi-fi is limited but I find this a welcome relief as it enables us to spend quality family time which you miss when you are living life at a fast pace. Sue, our host was so welcoming and she responded very quickly to all enquiries. This accommodation is perfect for anyone and its closeness to the beach and village seals the deal for us every time. Don't delay - book today!!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the house is very cosy and only a 5 minute walk down to the beach. The house has everything that you could need from your stay, from a well stocked kitchen to lovely touches such as bath robes and slippers. We travelled with a 2 year old and Sue provided plenty of toys and books to keep him entertained. Hope Cove is very pretty, it has a lovely beach, 2 good pubs and great walks across the cliffs with really nice eateries in both directions. We also visited Salcombe which is beautiful and only a short drive away. Overall we'd definitely recommend both the house and the area and hope to visit again soon.

We've been staying in Kittiwake every summer for about 10 years now and absolutely love it. We've come with dogs, friends, grandparents etc and we have always been accommodated and comfortable. Really comfy beds and bed linen. We all say we have the best night's sleep in Kittiwake. I love buying Sue's homemade jams and chutneys to take back home. The kitchen is well stocked and there are books and games in case it rains. Lots of bathrooms with plenty of towels and hot water for warming up after a swim in the sea! Kittiwake has everything you need to enjoy a stay in Hope Cove.
