"The present is the ever moving shadow that divides yesterday from tomorrow. In that lies hope."

Frank Lloyd Wright

Lobster boats 'Charlotte' and 'Allora' moored on the beach harbour of Inner Hope Cove. The cliffs on the far side of the bay are part of the Bolt Tail headland

Hope Cove is in the 'South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' and was once a favourite haunt for smugglers. It was the only place in England where Spaniards came ashore during the reign of Queen Elisabeth I. St. Peter the Great, one of the ships of the Spanish Armada was wrecked on the Shippen Rock in 1588. A number of buildings in the South Devon area incorporate old beams salvaged from the wreckage of the Armada.
