Well Equipped Gem

  • 4 of 5

It may lack kerb appeal for some but inside the cottage is a delight. It has a modern kitchen and bathroom but the living rooms and bedrooms are full of character. The garden has a seating area with good quality garden furniture. It is opposite one of two very friendly pubs in the village that serve reasonable meals. The village has a supermarket and there is a regular bus service to Salcombe and Kingsbridge. I would certainly recommend the cottage to friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, I'm so glad you enjoyed your time at our cottage. Unfortunately the external of the building needs repainting most years due to the sea air and unfortunately we hadn't managed to secure a decorator in time for the start of season this year, thankfully a full redecoration of the outside to include railings & shed etc was carried out at the end of season. The building now looks beautiful - fresh, clean & bright in it's funky new colours!

Lovely traditional cottage.

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful long weekend at Hope Thatch. Lovely and near to Salcombe , with some fantastic restaurants - we felt like we had been away for a week. The cottage is ideally located to start some truly beautiful walks and to visit the lovely beaches. Spent lazy evenings at the cottage watching DVDs and relaxing in this unspoilt cottage and village. Clean and tidy with everything you need for a relaxing break. The local shop/petrol station also stocks almost anything you might need. Would definitely recommend.

Great weekend away, throughly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Located between Kingsbridge and Salcombe which offer a fantastic selection of restaurants, bars, amenities as well as the great british seaside. The cottage itself is lovely and whilst having all the 17th century charm and a new wood burning stove it also has all the required modcons including a huge 3D TV, Internet and an Xbox Kinnect.

Hope Thatch - what a gem!!!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this gorgeous cottage for 2 weeks in December. It took us a long while to get the door unlocked, but got the keylock working better by giving it a clean. It was superb - the owners had thought of everything that we would need. A whole family could easily stay, there was plenty of room. Everything was good quality, and the bed was bliss. There were a couple of minor problems with the glass shower screen not working properly (so water went all over the floor) and a leak in the kitchen roof. (Hubby wanted to fix this, but the rainy weather meant that the roof didn't dry enough for a bit of silicone to set.) We tried to use the (pay)phone once, and lost our pound, but that could have been our fault as we weren't sure how to use it. The 2 pubs in the street were very friendly, and for us tourists, having the post office 2 minutes walk away was very helpful. The petrol station at the corner has a great supermarket, so there was no need to drive to Kingsbridge for groceries. The Kingsbridge Tourist Information Centre were extremely helpful. There is also a fabulous farmer's market in Kingsbridge. We chose Hope Thatch because of its quaint look, for being in a small village and for being a central location to touring Devon and Cornwall, and we were not disappointed! Even driving to Land's End for the day was fairly easy - about 3 hour's drive each way. We would say that having a car is a must, but parking at the cottage can be a problem. Often there would be another car parked in "our" spot, but the pub didn't mind us parking in their car park behind the pub. We would most definitely recommend Hope Thatch to families or couples - as long as you are physically able to climb rather steep stairs. It is a credit to the owners, and it was an absolute joy for us to stay there.

Owner's Response: We're glad that the cottage was enjoyed, we find it a cosy little gem and are pleased that our guests appreciated it. Not being there all of the time there can occasionally be a maintenance issue and we are grateful when our guests inform us of them so that they can be dealt with quickly - the caretaker's details are at the cottage and they are at hand to sort out any problems during our guests' stay. The problem with the kitchen roof was rectified immediately. The key was a spare one found in the old key lock safe, this has since been removed.
