The Cottage HotelDistance from the centre of Kingsbridge: 4.5 miles
The Cottage Hotel will be re-opening for accommodation and meals to residents and non-residents from July 4th. All meals will have to be booked in advance with further information on the new operating procedures available here. If you are booking a table on the terrace then there will be an additional charge so that we can also secure you a table in the restaurant in case of rain. Please make sure to book a table before 11am the same day.
To maintain social distancing rules we will not be offering drinks at the bar. Instead, we will provide full table service throughout the restaurant and lounges.
Here you will find comfortable lounges, glorious views from the sun terraces, and a style of service you thought had disappeared forever.
We have an excellent reputation for food and wine, well appointed accommodation and parking for fifty cars. But above all else, it is our hospitality that keeps our guests returning year after year. The Cottage Hotel is a family-run business and the Ireland family has been offering one of the warmest welcomes in Devon since 1973.
From its magnificent position above the pretty and secluded fishing village of Hope Cove, South Devon. The Cottage Hotel offers some of the most beautiful views of sea and coastline in the UK. Overlooking Bigbury Bay, Burgh Island, Rame Head near Plymouth and, with good visibility, even as far as St Austell in Cornwall. You'll find the atmosphere is peaceful and relaxing when you visit, and the grounds of two acres descend to the fine sandy beach making it convenient to bathe in safety from the hotel.
There are many beaches within walking distance such as South Milton Sands and Thurlestone Sands, and many secluded coves and beaches.
Whether you are staying for a long or short break, there are many activities to keep you entertained and places to visit: sailing from the Salcombe estuary; golfing at Dartmouth, Bigbury and Thurlestone Golf Clubs; bird-watching and walking on nearby National Trust areas. We also host special event breaks such as Murder Mystery Weekends, Painting and Mosaic art courses, and Photography courses.
