Delightful family run hotel, situated just 50 yards from 3 golden sandy beaches, children and pets welcome, superb restaurant plus more!!

Welcome to the Sun Bay Hotel, near Salcombe. A delightful family owned and run 14 bedroom hotel in South Devon. We are situated 50 yards from the 3 golden sandy beaches of Hope Cove and are on the Famous South West Coast Path.

Our dining room, bar, sun terrace, and most of our bedrooms look out over Bigbury Bay towards Eddystone Lighthouse, and command delightful views of Bolt Tail.

The towns of Salcombe and Dartmouth lie within easy reach of Hope Cove. Slightly further afield are the cities of Plymouth and Torquay.

A beautiful Devon village that is a safe and unspoiled haven to escape from the hurly burly of modern life, with lovely thatched cottages and unspoiled beaches.


All our rooms are en-suite with either a shower or bath and most have breath taking sea views. Each room has a television, WIFI access, coffee and tea making facilities, and a hairdryer. As well as a choice of double and twin rooms, we also have two family rooms with a double bed along with either a single bed or family bunk-beds.

We look forward to welcoming you in our fully-stocked and recently refurbished bar and lounge. Why not enjoy a relaxing drink while enjoying breathtaking sea views over the bay from our sun terrace. It's an ideal place to appreciate the stunning natural beauty of Hope Cove. If you visit during the Spring or Autumn, why not join us during the cooler evenings and share the warmth of our real log fire in the snug area of the bar?

We're family and pet friendly and the Hotel is an ideal base for walkers, the Devon coast path runs right through the village. You can go West and walk to Bolt Tail in Salcombe or East towards Thurlestone and enjoy the views from the cliffs. There is the opportunity to indulge in a wide selection of watersports, including sailing and boating from Whitestrand Boat Hire, boat trips in Salcombe, and windsurfing at Thurlestone. Both Bigbury and Thurlestone have 18 hole golf courses.

An ironic delight of Hope Cove is that mobile telephone coverage is patchy at best. In case you do feel like breaking from your retreat we are pleased to provide 3G Vodafone mobile coverage throughout the hotel. We also have Wireless Broadband Internet available free of charge to all residents.


Our restaurant caters for non residents and residents alike. Our food is contemporary modern British and we are proud of the fact that everything is cooked fresh and made from local GM free and where possible, organically reared produce. Our speciality is fresh seafood supplied from Brixham, Salcombe and Plymouth and we go to considerable trouble to ensure that the fish is of the best quality money can buy. Our Seafood platter has become especially popular. Our trip advisor reports on the quality and popularity of the food will probably say more than we can.


Will always include Tea, Coffee, Fresh Orange or Apple Juice, Grapefruit segments or Prunes, a selection of cereals and toast made from locally baked organic granary bread. Cooked options include a full English breakfast (sausages, bacon, beans, sauted potatoes, grilled mushroom, grilled tomato and eggs cooked to your specifcation, or locally caught haddock and a poached egg, or Salcombe smokies (kippers in normal language).
