Walk from Malborough to Hope Cove – A local Beach

It will take you around 45 minutes to get to Hope Cove. It’s mostly across the fields taking in the breathtaking views of our coastline and out to sea.  Start by going through Lower Town and walk past the church.  Go right at the fork and follow the lane down towards Hope Cove.  Watch out for tractors. After 10 minutes or so you will see a footpath sign on the left (below).

Take this and cross the field. You might bump into sheep grazing. In Spring you’ll probably see the beautiful baby lambs too. Keep going through to the next field and path.  There’s 2 wind huge turbines in a field, which you can’t miss.  Walk across this field to the side and you will open up to the amazing views. You’ll see the sea at this point too.  You should be on the bridge at the top of the valley of the beautiful Devon countryside.  There’s a well used  tractor track going downhill all the way to the coast keep going straight. Eventually you’ll come into the middle of hope cove (below) with a beautiful little chapel.

Turn right after the church (below) and that will take you to the most popular beach as you can sunbathe and swim even when the tide is in.

Also check out the Cove Café Bar while you are down there (below)

And Hope Cove Gallery 

(Be aware this walk is across fields it gets muddy in Winter, so wear the right boots)
