About Beach Cove

The Beach Cove Coastal Retreat Story

During 2014, Beach Cove Coastal Retreat welcomed its first visitors, after the completion of extensive redevelopment work, to the formally known Beach Side Park.

Extensive structural work has been vital at Beach Cove, to protect the cliff edge against erosion and to safeguard the park for the future. Essential underpinning has been time-consuming but necessary to ensure we at Darwin Escapes can continue to help you create holiday memories that last a lifetime.

Boutique Holiday Resort

romantic destination Devon

Take time to fall in love all over again.

Today, Beach Cove Coastal Retreat has been described as “the newest and most exclusive, innovative holiday accommodation in the UK” (Pathfinder Homes – August 2014) and is an idyllic destination for couples seeking an intimate, luxury and unique holiday location. We believe our accommodation takes luxury to the next level, with bright and colourful exteriors that are complimented by chic vintage interiors.

Our resort is located on Hele Bay and offers stunning views of this coastal region. These can be admired from the sanctuary of your own Beach Hut accommodation, making it the ideal destination to enjoy a romantic break in Devon.

We have a range of beach huts which are available for hire on our resort, all of which are lavishly furnished and surprisingly spacious. They also come with everything you could need for a self catered holiday in Ilfracombe. Alternatively we also have a number of holiday apartments available on the resort which also offer stunning sea views.

The resort is ideally located to allow holiday makers to explore the many attractions on offer in this region, with its countless scenic walking and cycling routes which are perfect for romantic saunters.

Our Mission Statement

to create and provide an experience that enables our customers to carve memories that last a lifetime, in a safe and secure environment.
