“Very comfortable and great hosts”
Reviewed 6 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Only stayed 1 night as I was taking Sue's pot making course, brought wife to navigate the country lanes.
Wish we had stayed longer as the house and owners are very friendly, easy going and provide an education and introduction to the colourful heritage of this area.
The flexibility offered by the layout of the house is brilliant, the location is worth the effort of driving the South Devon lanes safely, glad I did not tow our caravan down for the night though.
Will return to explore the area as had not been around this region for a couple of decades.
Plenty to offer using Kittiwake as a base, do your research, ask questions, enjoy.

Thank you. I am considering having basket weaving courses available at other times of year to the holiday maker. Prior notice required in order to have willow suitably prepared.

“Hope Cove - Jan 16”
Reviewed 20 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our little stay in Devon for my wife's 40th birthday!

The Kittiwake seaside retreat was perfect for our small family, was well presented and very clean. There was also a plethrora of games and books to keep our 4 year old boy busy in the evenings after a busy day.

Hope Cove is a quaint little place but with plenty to do; from walks to wildlife spotting or even messing about in the surf or casing the rock pools looking for beach treasure at Thurlestone or South Milton Sands.

We hope to visit again soon!

“Very Good Break”
Reviewed 3 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

My wife and I were here for a week from the 20th to the 27th November and it is lovely. We
toured the area during the day and spent the evenings in .This is a remote area so the local roads are very narrow so to drive in the dark could be difficult. The weather was good
and with a lot of places to go to it was a very good week. If you stay here then do get a Crab
from the owner as he is the only person now fishing in the local waters for Crab and Lobster.We would come again.

We fish for crab and lobster with 800 pots along the coast from Salcombe to Bigbury Bay, also catch some netfish at certain times of year. Sue makes traditional willow pots and teaches classes at home..

“Lovely peaceful break”

person found this review helpful

We enjoyed a very relaxing couple of days in Hope Cove. The accommodation was very comfortable and nicely furnished with every little extra that you could think of. Plenty of kitchen equipment if you want to eat in. Sue was very welcoming. The village is so unspoilt and very pretty lovely place for costal walks. There's a couple of hotels and restaurants and a friendly pub where we ate twice. Hopefully we will be back.

“Amazing!!!!”
Reviewed 10 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

10 of us stayed at the beautiful Kittiwake cottage for a friends wedding, the place was stunning all the rooms were beautiful with fresh flowers, candles, bathrobes etc, Couldn't have asked for more and when we did (best man forgot his cuff links) the owners were soo helpful and kind to us. Would love to stay again, and I would defiantly recommend this place to anyone.

“Exceeded all our expectations.”
Reviewed 2 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We were looking for a reasonably priced rental for a long weekend away in February. Kittiwake was very reasonably priced and we had the whole of the upstairs. 2 lovely bedrooms. 2 bathrooms a sitting room /kitchen / dining area and hallway. The quality of everything was superb and it was so well equipped. A short walk to the beach and cliff path. The only tiny potential problem for anyone not so agile..both bathrooms have baths not walk in showers and the shower is hand held and low down due to the sloping ceiling. Ample hot water though and it wasn't a problem for us. A super place. Thank you.

“A top quality, extremely comfortable, cosy and relaxing break.”
Reviewed 9 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We were a group of four mums, leaving children, partners and chores behind for a weekend! We certainly felt the 'wow' factor when we arrived, as Kittiwake is beautiful and extremely spacious. The very good heating made it toasty warm too, which was much appreciated during the beautifully sunny but very cold February weekend. The furnishings were gorgeous, the beds and bathrooms especially making us feel that our own homes could do with some serious up-grading!

Sue and David were away during our visit, so we got a little confused when we first arrived, walking into a lounge and kitchen that felt like someone's home ...it was their home! But we soon sorted ourselves out and enjoyed the luxury of having so much space to enjoy. We used the two bedrooms downstairs and all the upstairs. We slept so well!

We had a delicious meal in the hotel restaurant just round the corner and happened to meet some of Sue and Dave's friends there. The next day, we enjoyed a long walk along the coast and a good pub lunch in Thurlestone (turn inland by the shed on the edge of the golf course). The weather was perfect for February, cold but bright. It showed Hope Cove and the whole area off beautifully during the day and showed us a great starry sky by night.

We would thoroughly recommend a holiday in Kittiwake. We didn't want to leave. Thank you Sue and Dave!
