Anchor Cottages - Westward Ho! description

"Sands flanked by rock, with wooded cliffs above – true Devon coastal character . . ."The wooded cliffs at Bolt Tail form a backdrop to this sandy cove on what is renowned as one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the South Hams. These holiday cottages are set within 100 yards of the safe sandy beach – an unrivalled position for enjoying the seaside, but also perfect for fishing, sailing and water-skiing (with a dinghy-launching slip 200 yards away, and facilities for larger boats at nearby Salcombe). The cottages are in the centre of this charming seaside village, with its pretty thatched cottages, inns, restaurants and small shop within a short walk. The South Devon Coastal Footpath winds along the cliffs and through Hope Cove between Salcombe and Thurlestone, with opportunities for magnificent walking amongst glorious coastal scenery.
The maritime attractions continue slightly further afield. Salcombe, 4 miles away, is one of the most prestigious sailing centres in the country. It offers extensive sandy beaches, too, and a wide choice of fascinating shops, boutiques and restaurants in its quaintly winding narrow streets. The estuary here is a kaleidoscope of brightly coloured craft of all kinds at their moorings – a paradise for sailing enthusiasts. Thurlestone, 2 miles to the west, can be reached either by car or via the coastal path. It boasts yet more expanses of golden sands, a regular feature of this lovely coastline. But, in addition, it has a superb cliff-top links golf course, edged by sandy coves, tennis courts and picturesque streets of thatched cottages overlooking the bay. Kingsbridge, the ‘capital’ of the South Hams, has a good choice of interesting shops, a museum and a sports centre with squash, badminton and bowling. Boating and diving trips can be arranged in the Salcombe Estuary, and boats are available for hire. Within easy driving distance are the historic cities of Plymouth and Exeter and Kitley Caves. The wide open spaces and breathtaking scenery of the Dartmoor National Park are less than an hour by car, and there are many National Trust properties, stately homes and interesting gardens within a short drive. Anchor Cottages are set in a little terrace in the village. They have been designed to offer ‘upside-down’ accommodation, with first floor living rooms. Comfortably furnished, each has a small first floor sitting-out area with furniture. They are ideally located for a Devon holiday by the sea. Shop/P.O. 50 yards.Three cosy ground floor bedrooms; one double, one twin and one small single. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. Open-tread stairs to first floor: Open-plan living/dining room but with a similarly well-fitted kitchen area, elec fire and doors to patio.

Excellent location very close to the beach at Hope Cove.

Great cottage if you want to be able to visit beach and be able to pop 'home' at lunchtime.

A well-appointed house only 30 seconds from a lovely, family-friendly beach.

The location of the cottage is perfect, within walking distance with arms full of buckets & spades to the beach, shops, pub and local restuarants. Holiday accommodation very clean & tidy with everything you need. Towels, bedding covers etc supplied, with cleaning materials for kitchen & bathroom included. Excellent value for money.

I loved the position and convenience, one bedroom is a little dark but there is not a lot you can do with that, excellent kitchen facilities, excellent caretaker, we know the area very well, but if we hadn’t, there could have been more info as to where to go, local markets and suggestions.

General layout of the cottage was everything needed. Perfect really thought that the master bedroom was a little small for a double bed. Was very squashed, and thought the twin bedded room would have been better as a double, and then 2 singles.

Great cottage if you want to be able to visit beach and be able to pop "home" at lunchtime.
