Dusky Cottage Overview

A land of boats and boutiques, palm trees and proms; it’s easy to see why Devon’s South Hams Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is such a desirable destination for luxury family holidays by the sea.

Dusky Cottage is equidistant between the yachting havens of Kingsbridge and Salcombe, and set on an idyllic country lane leading down to the golden bay of Hope Cove. Push open the sky-blue gate and you’ll be smitten. This 250-year-old self-catering cottage is sure to capture the hearts of all the family.

With its four-poster bed, the master bedroom is like one from a storybook and sits alongside two twin bedrooms – all of which enjoy far-reaching southerly vistas of the rolling hills. One of the twins features an en suite shower room, whilst the other bedrooms share the family bathroom with its tempting claw-foot tub.

The ruby red and royal blue guest suite is on the ground floor. Perfect for grandparents, this bedroom is just off the drawing room and has an adjoining shower room.

After fresh coffee and sugar-dusted pastries on the terrace, take a short drive down the lane to discover the tiny hub of Hope Cove. Here you’ll find a pint-size harbour, gorgeous sandy bay and smattering of delightful eateries tucked between undeveloped cliffs.

Let the infectious atmosphere win you over, at what will soon feel like your home-away-from-home. A day of beachy adventures will have you yearning for the comfort of the cottage come dusk, where a bubbling wooden hot tub and fire pit await – campfire songs optional (but when else does one get the chance?)!

Please note: there are low ceilings throughout the property, especially in the kitchen.

One well-behaved dog is welcome priced at £45 per week.

No smoking allowed in or around Dusky Cottage due to thatched roof.

A wonderful location, beautiful house with a spacious deck with great views. The kitchen is well equipped and the balcony attached to the master bedroom is a lovely place to start the day.

We had a lovely stay at 1 The Strand. It was a beautifully appointed house with stunning views of the harbour. It's conveniently located for the town but still felt very private.
