The Cottage Hotel provides a taste of the good life. Combining attentive service with great food and outstanding views, this hotel is a hidden gem – you’ll find it just five miles from Salcombe and Kingsbridge in the village of Hope Cove. Family-run since 1973, the hotel is open throughout the day for food and refreshments, offering everything from an English breakfast, morning coffee and cream teas to light lunches, Sunday lunch and a two- to five-course dinner menu. The dinner menu changes daily and includes fresh fish and vegetarian options. The in-house pastry chef produces a selection of tempting desserts. If you’re looking for a more casual dining experience, why not reserve a ‘pod’ at the hotel’s Lobster Pod Bistro? Open from noon, guests can dine overlooking the beach, al fresco, inside one of the pods or in the cabin and watch the sun set over the sea.
