Putting Hove Cove on the film map

When the BBC TV serial ' The Coroner' started filming in Hope Cove, the residents wondered if it would be catapulted into the lime light just as West Bay was, following the success of the TV series ' Broadchurch' and Port Isaac thanks to the popularity of ' Doc Martin'.

However, the Japanese photo hunters have not yet arrived in their droves and the three, child friendly, sandy beaches and proximity to the South West Coast Path have retained their unspoilt allure for home owners and visitors alike.  

The letting season in the picturesque Devon coastal village of Hope Cove, with its stone breakwater  more evocative of  a Cornish smugglers cove that would feature well in an episode of  Poldark, has always been longer than its more vibrant neighbour Salcombe, exactly for those reasons - good walking, excellent leisure pursuits and easily accessible for  all the family.  With a choice of restaurants, shops and dog friendly beaches

3 Armada House, a three bedroom duplex apartment very close to the beach with delightful sea views in the very heart of this charming old fishing village, is on the market at £295,000 with leading South Hams Estate Agents, Marchand Petit through the Salcombe office.
