Set back into the hillside behind is a detached property of individual design enjoying spectacular views over the village to the sea and coastline stretching to Cornwall. Rural views are also enjoyed from the gardens at the rear which stretch back to the National Trust land ensuring privacy. From this special location a walk of only 400 yards will take you to the slipway and sandy beach of Inner Hope Cove. Continuing the walk for a further 500 yards along the clifftop pathway takes you to Outer Hope Cove having another beach within the harbour and in the village behind is the Hope and Anchor Public House, The Cove Café Bar, Post Office stores and above is the popular Cottage Hotel.

The property of traditional cavity wall construction under a tiled roof offers a style of five bedroom accommodation to happily suit the different generations of a family as a main or second home.
