🙂 Stunning Walks, Great Location perfect for family camping.

Our annual Camping trip was at Hope Cove in Devon – stunning and spectacular! Karregeen is a lovely family run campsite right on the coast which has spectacular views and sallows dogs and firepits. Cliff top walks are magnificent.

The weather was spectacular. Food amazing and plentiful as always.

In 1588 the Spanish Armada ship St Peter the Great was wrecked on the Shippen Rock and Hope Cove was the one of the few places in England that Spaniards came ashore. Hope Cove had its own Lifeboat crewed by local families from 1878 to 1930. The Lifeboat Station is the building above the harbour slipway in Inner Hope. The two beautiful Hope Cove beaches, Mouthwell Sands and Harbour Beach are perfect for swimming and building sandcastles!  Dogs allowed all year at Hope Cove but on leads. At Mouthwell Beach dogs are banned from 1st May to 30th September.

Easter Egg Hunt!
