We had a wonderful time at Hope Barton, swimming every day and taking long cliff-top walks in the sunshine. As an experiment we did without a car. Hope Cove is so delightful that it is impossible to get bored. The spring flowers along the roadside banks and the birds, both those you can see and those that you can only hear, are fabulous. We got the bus into Kingsbridge just once but other journeys further afield are possible with a bit of planning. To cut down on food shopping you can buy many basics from the small shop or delicious ready-prepared meals. The Monday night supper is not to be missed.
