Hope Cove

Hope Cove

Hope Cove is a beautiful coastal sanctuary, nestling in the shelter of Bolt Tail in the curve of Bigbury Bay. Once a favourite haunt for smugglers, now a charming holiday destination. The picturesque fishing village is two villages in one - Outer and Inner Hope. At Inner Hope there is a collection of cob or stone cottages, thatch galore, around a tiny square. Fleeting fame has visited on a coupe of occasions. Emperor Haile Selassie spent part of his exile here and the village square was featured during the opening sequence of A Queen is Crowned, the film made in 1953 to celebrate the coronation.
