The old fishing village of Hope Cove is probably the most photographed in South Devon in particular the chocolate box thatched cottages of The Square in Inner Hope Cove which feature on countless postcards. Within The Square is the Grade II listed Orchard Cottage and The Chalet, both fine detached properties set in good sized gardens with parking for several cars wonderfully situated in the shelter of the hillside whilst being a walk of only 150 yards from the slipway and sandy beach. The two so beautifully presented homes offer very different styles of accommodation both full of character of their own from the traditional old cottage to the bright seaside chalet. Looking at the good size garden behind the chalet brings a thought of creating an additional cottage.

Orchard Cottage is of traditional stone and cob construction under a well maintained thatched roof. A later addition to the rear, part of which was used as a shop, is under a flat roof. Extensive renovations to an exacting standard were carried out within the last seventeen years and fastidiously maintained with the truly charming character we see today featuring a wealth of fine old timber. In contract The Chalet is of timber construction under a slated roof which underwent a complete renovation including full external insulation and boarding that has created such a fabulous individual holiday home with the openness that epitomizes the seaside chalet for couples to stay.
