Camac Cottage

Located in Hope Cove
  • Sleeps: 8
  • Bedrooms: 4
  • Bathrooms: 2
  • Pet Friendly: 2


Camac is a lovely beachside holiday cottage, just a few steps from two golden sandy beaches where lazy summer days can be idled away digging sandcastles, indulging in serious cream teas, paddling in the rock pools but close enough to nip back ‘home’ to cool off and have a sand-free lunch in the garden! This delightful terraced cottage, originally a pair of coastguard cottages, is tucked below Shippens, the grassy hillock, that divides the beaches of Outer and Inner Hope in the middle of the picturesque seaside fishing village of Hope Cove. This is a wonderful spot at any time of the year.

Please note: Due to the steepness and setup of the stairs the property may not be suitable for the elderly or infirm. Children need to be supervised in the garden due to unfenced boundary leading to cliffs.


Ground floor:
Sitting room with feature fireplace housing a wood burner, two large sofas, chairs, TV, DVD, CD player and plenty of books and games.
Kitchen with large fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and electric cooker. Steps up and access to rear garden.

Dining room with dining table to seat 8.
Family bathroom with bath, shower over and basin.
Separate WC.

First Floor (accessed by two staircases at either end of the house):
Bunk bedroom with 3ft full-size bunks.
Double bedroom with 5ft king size bed. This room has a connecting door to a second...
Double bedroom with a 4ft 6in wrought-iron bedstead, wardrobe and village views.
Bunk bedroom with full-size 3ft bunks (note: an awkward step into this room from the stairs).
Please Note: Both double bedrooms have their own separate entrances, although they also have an interconnecting door.


At the rear of the cottage is an unfenced lawned area, with two picnic benches, chairs, charcoal barbecue and low walls on one side. (There are no fenced boundaries between the garden areas of the other cottages). The ground rises and extends on to the higher part of the hillside. This natural area is owned by all the cottages in the row, so is communal and although the views from the top are spectacular, children will need very careful supervision as it is unfenced and the land drops away as a vertical cliff face to the sea below. The front of the cottage has two benches and faces a single track lane, mainly used as a footpath between the beaches.


A very large shared garage is a few steps away where there is designated parking for one car.


  • Included: Duvets, pillows (no bed linen or towels), child booster seat, travel cot, initial supply of logs. Heating (night storage) and electricity.

Area Details

Hope Cove

Lying on the coast of the popular South Hams area of Devon, Hope Cove consists of two sandy bays called Inner and Outer Hope. The perfect destination for families looking for a traditional beach holiday with paddling, swimming, sand castles and rock pooling. The beaches have red sandstone cliffs to the rear which provide not only a beautiful backdrop but a shady area if needed. Both beaches back onto the charming village where there are plenty of places to eat out as well as shops for those last-minute beach needs. The more popular Mouthwell Sands beach also benefits from a seasonal lifeguard service and dogs are allowed between October and April. The village beach is pet-friendly all year round but must be kept on a lead.

Hugely popular, especially with families, we have a great selection of Hope Cove cottages but we would advise booking early as this area fills up fast.
