Paxhaven is located in the centre of Outer Hope and less than a five minute flat walk to the beach. Hope Cove is a beautiful Devon village, with lovely thatched cottages and safe, unspoilt beaches patrolled by RNLA lifeguards during the summer. The two village pubs and a shop are conveniently close by, as are a number of other places to get an evening meal.
The beautiful south west coast path is also just a few strides away. The path is a designated National Trail providing some of the finest walking routes in Britain. To quote the SWCP website "The section from Hope Cove to Salcombe is thought by many to be one of the most beautiful sections of the entire 630 miles of the path". We welcome walkers and recommend Luggage Transfers if you're planning to stay in various locations and wish your luggage to follow you.
Other beaches close by are at Inner Hope (a few minutes walk) and Thurlestone sands (a 10 minute drive). Salcombe is also only 10 minutes away and has the lovely Mill Bay/Sunny Cove. Bantham and Bigbury (along with the stunning Burgh Island) are about 25 minutes away and well worth a visit. The award winning Blackpool Sands and Torcross are also just a short drive away.
We are also conveniently situated for the towns of Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Totnes.
