Welcome to Lantern Lodge, Hope Cove, Kingsbridge. The Lantern Lodge is a small privately run B&B situated on the cliff top right next to the South Devon Coastal path and overlooking the secluded fishing village of Hope Cove with its Devon thatch cottages, clean, sandy and safe beaches. Nearby are the old traditional towns of Kingsbridge, Salcombe and Dartmouth all offering their own individual character and all offering that little extra to make your stay in the South Hams that extra special and unique. Also close by are Thurlestone, Bigbury and Dartmouth golf courses all with stunning views of the area and fantastic and challenging courses. The Lantern Lodge has its own special extras to offer including an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna, double, twin and four poster rooms all with en-suite facilities and some with sea views. 9 hole putting green and plenty of car parking. There is a dining room where breakfast is served. The Lantern Lodge is so named after its attractive leafily-clad 'Lantern window.' Local folklore would have us believe that this type of window was specially designed to hold and display an illuminated lantern which could be seen from all three aspects far out to sea, acting as a beacon to safely guide home all their boats. Nowadays, our Lantern window serves very much the same purpose in welcoming back our contented guests year after year.

We know this area very well, and chose the b&b due to its fantastic location, situated on the cliff path with beautiful views across Hope Cove bay. Lots of free parking, a steep hill to walk down to inner/outer Hope (worth remembering when walking back...More

We've just returned from a 3 day stay at Lantern Lodge. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast excellent. Décor a bit dated but the Hotel itself is spotlessly clean. Swimming pool an added bonus.

This bed and breakfast was recommended to us by some friends as a base for exploring South Hams. It was easy to find. Though very old fashioned in decor, the hospitability was second to none and it was much larger than I expected. It was...More

Traditional style B and B, so don’t expect contemporary decor. Very warm welcome and friendly staff and a great breakfast served to order. Very clean room and en suite. Plenty of parking, even a swimming pool! Would recommend and visit again.

Not sure if ours was number 16 but it was at the front over the front door with corner view of sea and headland and it was a lovely room. Could sit in corner seat with table with view.

My answer would be the same as the first reply from Bill P. Excellent food at £25 per head.

Hello, I am sorry to say that we do not accept dogs. Sand Pebbles Hotel which is just down the road does take dogs, they can be found on trip advisor too. Many thanks
