The Moorings is a traditional Devon cottage built in the 1700’s originally built for the local fishermen and their families in Hope Cove. Situated about 20 yards from Mouthwell beach, it occupies a prime position in one of the most sought after spots in the South Hams. The property has been completely and sympathetically renovated with reverse living to maximise the fantastic sea views in a spacious, light cottage with all modern conveniences, plus a first floor spacious outside decking area for barbecues, sunbathing and making the most of the fabulous views. The Moorings is brilliantly located just yards from the harbour and its golden sandy beaches.
