We arrived at Hope Cove and I felt like I had walked on to the set of Doc Martin! It is a beautiful spot with the most gorgeous views and The Moorings is perfectly placed just across from the beach. We were extremely lucky with the weather and when we opened the door the house was just stunning, beautifully decorated throughout and the deck enabled us to sit in the sunshine with a glass of wine admiring the fabulous view .... perfect! The bedrooms were all extremely comfortable and bathrooms too, just like a 5* Hotel to be honest! The kitchen was great as there were 6 of us and we could gather round the large table and cook and chat but my favourite spot was to sit at the kitchen window just looking out to the beach and sea beyond!
The lounge too was stunningly decorated and lovely to relax in after dinner.
The 2 pubs were only a short distance away - we had a meal in The Hope and Anchor which was lovely and we went on some beautiful walks which were very accessible and nearby.
Salcombe is very close and worth a visit too .... we will return as it was just a perfect weekend away and we had such fun - The Moorings has everything .... location, style, comfort and star quality! Oh and we took our chocolate Labrador Cocoa and she just loved it too ... doggie heaven!!
I absolutely loved the week I spent at The Moorings with my Parents and their Chihuahua , Milly.
They say Location, Location, Location and this is certainly true here.
Lie in bed (which by the way is extremely comfortable) and listen to the sound of the waves on the shore (with the window open), walk out the door and you are on the beach, look out the windows and you see the sea and from the terrace you get far reaching views along the coast in two different directions!
It is only a hop, skip and a jump from the Post Office/Shop, which has all the essentials and does the best hot Pasties, the pub, where the service and food is excellent whether it is a small bite or full blown restaurant dinner and the cafe/bistro that did the best crab sandwich that I have ever had.
The house itself is beautifully furnished in a way that is a cross between a 5 star hotel and a home. The kitchen has all the gadgets you could possibly need to lavishly entertain and you really feel Caroline has gone out of her way to try an think of every little detail that will ensure your stay is as enjoyable as possible.
Stayed here in August with our parents and daughter and it was excellent. Perfect location for both beaches in Hope, nice and close (but not too close) to the pub, cafe and shop. Do a supermarket shop before you arrive and you don’t need to leave the village at all. Loved sitting out on the terrace watching the sea and people going by. House was really nice, all mod cons, would definitely visit again.
Perfect Location for Beauiful Scenery and Costal walks. Well equipped Spacious light and airy Accommodation. Beds are so comfy, large well equipped kitchen and large living area. Nice Balcony which has views of the sea. Like home from home. Two Pub restauarants near by, although it is still peaceful and quiet. We ate in both which were lovely, but we preferred the Cove, food was amazing in the Cove and Staff were friendly. Nice Costal walks, we visited Dartmouth and Salcombe which were not too far to drive. The owner Caroline left a book with some very useful information regarding where to visit, eat and general information. All in all had a very lovely time in Devon and will definitely be visting the Moorings again.
We stayed for week in August - 4 adults, 2 children and a sea loving terrier. The Moorings is a lovely cottage every bit as gorgeous as its photos. The sun deck is the perfect place to relax in the sun and watch the waves. The ice cream parlour, great pubs and sandy beaches could hardly be any closer. The freshly baked croissants from the village shop are delicious. All in all a brilliant holiday in a lovely location.
We spent a wonderful week in this lovely cottage delightfully decorated with beautiful textiles and quirky items. Very well equipped and comfortable, with a deck to enjoy the view and make the most of the last of the evening sun.
The two beaches are gorgeous - one with rock pools for exploring, and the other one nearest the cottage is flatter and good for paddling, or if brave enough, to swim in.
I would definitely recommend The Moorings to my friends and would love to come again.
We loved the week we spent at The Moorings! The location is so perfect, we could walk out onto the beach for swimming, kayaking paddle boarding, we also took the gorgeous 1 mile walk along the cliff tops another National Trust beach with clear blue water! Most nights we ate on the home's gorgeous roof terrace looking out onto the sunset over the sea, but is also less than 1 minutes walk to lovely eateries of Hope Cove.
The house has been beautifully decorated (loved the seaside touches!) and comfortably accommodated 5 adults (and a Cockerpoo!), with each bedroom having its own bathroom! Everything we needed...we will be booking for next year!
