Ten Ocean Reach is perched above Hope Cove, providing guests with sensational views from the living room and balcony. The first-floor apartment is part of the prestigious Ocean Reach development that consists of three superb self-catering properties and an excellent bar and restaurant. Ocean Reach is on Bolberry Down in the South Hams Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, close to beaches and the South West Coast Path. With one-bedroom and an open-plan living area, Ten Ocean Reach is perfect for couples or individuals, including those who want to bring their dogs on holiday.
Bolberry Down will take your breath away. This quiet corner of South Devon is in the care of the National Trust, who protect and preserve its beauty for everyone to enjoy. From the apartment, you can use the South West Coast Path to walk to Hope Cove, where there is a village shop, post office and a friendly pub, and beaches at South Milton Sands and Bantham. Alternatively, walk east to Soar Mill Cove and continue until you reach Salcombe. The circular footpath at Bolberry is tarmacked for accessibility, meaning that you can enjoy the experience in any weather without having to worry about getting wet or muddy feet. Another destination to add to your itinerary is Bolt Tail, where the remains of an Iron Age fort perch on the headland, overlooking a rocky stretch of coast which has surprised many unwary ships over the centuries.
Apart from the village shop in Hope Cove, the nearest place to buy food for your self-catering stay is in Malborough, where there is a well-stocked supermarket. Many guests choose to shop in Kingsbridge, a nearby market town on an estuary with picturesque historic buildings, a wider variety of shops and museums, and a vibrant farmers' market on the first and third Saturday of every month. Other towns to consider for shopping, sightseeing and eating out include Salcombe, Totnes and Dartmouth. Plymouth and Torquay are both within an hour's drive, while the southern border of Dartmoor National Park is even closer.
Ten Ocean Reach is available for short breaks or longer stays all year round. Please see the owner's website for more information.
