Certificate of Excellence
The Hope and Anchor In is set in the popular and unique old fishing village of Hope Cove, here in the South Hams of Devon. With breathtaking scenery, you really will be spoilt for choice. Obviously, the area is renowned for it's clifftop walks and on a blustery day, there really is nothing better than a walk around the miles of unspoilt coastline and countryside to invigorate the spirit. All our bedrooms are en-suite, mostly of which have breathtaking views of Bigbury Bay. There is a lovely area outside with tables and umbrellas so you can enjoy the atmosphere of Hope Cove whilst enjoying our fine ales, lunch or an evening meal. Situated yards from the sea teeming with maritime atmosphere our friendly Inn caters for all.
