We also booked too late to get a sea view room which was a shame as the views are stunning. But everything else was superb from the friendly staff to the fantastic dinners. Breakfast was pretty good too and we certainly didn't need any lunch. My only gripe would be with the one sausage with the full English breakfast which was a bit ordinary and one would have thought a good local alternative could have been sourced. But hey if this is the only gripe then one really can't complain. At the bar I sampled a locally brewed beer called Shingle Bay which was also excellent. We will be back. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone not on a diet!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to Lantern Lodge, Hope Cove, Kingsbridge. The Lantern Lodge is a small privately run B&B situated on the cliff top right next to the South Devon Coastal path and overlooking the secluded fishing village of Hope Cove with its Devon thatch cottages, clean, sandy and safe beaches. Nearby are the old traditional towns of Kingsbridge, Salcombe and Dartmouth all offering their own individual character and all offering that little extra to make your stay in the South Hams that extra special and unique. Also close by are Thurlestone, Bigbury and Dartmouth golf courses all with stunning views of the area and fantastic and challenging courses. The Lantern Lodge has its own special extras to offer including an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, double, twin and four poster rooms all with en-suite facilities and some with sea views. 9 hole putting green and plenty of car parking. There is a dining room where breakfast is served. The Lantern Lodge is so named after its attractive leafily-clad 'Lantern window.' Local folklore would have us believe that this type of window was specially designed to hold and display an illuminated lantern which could be seen from all three aspects far out to sea, acting as a beacon to safely guide home all their boats. Nowadays, our Lantern window serves very much the same purpose in welcoming back our contented guests year after year. ... more less
