Hope Thatch is the oldest house in the delightful South Devon village of Malborough. Dating back to 1650, it is Grade II listed and provides cosy and very comfortable holiday accommodation for 5 to 7 guests in a double bedroom, a twin bedroom and a single bedroom, with a further 2 guests able to be accomodated on the lounge sofa bed. It's sympathetic refurbishment has ensured that it's original character has been preserved and the cottage still boasts a wealth of original features including a slate fireplace (now with log-burning stove) and exposed beams. Furthermore in 2014 it has had an architecturally designed extension to house a new kitchen (with Aga Rayburn and American-style fridge freezer) with bi-fold doors opening an entire glass wall onto the garden, new downstairs/cloaks and new family bathroom - underfloor heating and solid French oak furniture.

The picturesque village of Malborough is a delightful place to stay with its pretty cottages that line the street. It has two pubs, a bistro, a church and a couple of shops all within walking distance of the cottage .Located between Salcombe and the pretty village of Hope Cove, this is the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful South Devon Coastline and South Hams area.

Perfect for families, it caters for babies (cot,highchair, stairgate, steraliser etc), younger children (private enclosed garden) and teenages (wifi internet, Sky 3D Smart TV, Blueray DVD with cinema surround-sound,Xbox Kinect & XBox Netflix Subscription, iPod dock). Great for adults (fine dining restaurants, romantic log fire). Enjoy a relaxing vacation of walks (South West Coast Path and Dartmoor) and sandy beaches, or have an activity holiday (sailing, powerboats, kayaking, golf, SCUBA diving, fishing, hiking etc). Year round attractions and events make winter getaways as popular as summer sun.

The West Country region

Beautiful beaches, wonderful countryside and country pubs is what Devon is best known for. In recent years watersports and excellent restaurants have added to the attraction.

There is a choice of several sandy beaches all within easy reach of the cottage, from small coves to wide-open sands - ideal for sailing, surfing and windsurfing. Also close by is a leisure centre, steam railways, horse riding and golf. The historical seaports of Plymouth and Dartmouth are within a 40 minute drive.

Year-round events and attractions make it ideal both Summer Sun and Winter Getaways.


Situated in the heart of the South Hams district of South Devon, Malborough lies between the sailing centre of Salcombe, the coastal village of Hope Cove and the market town of Kingsbridge. A quiet little village that has two pubs, a bistro, a well-stocked supermarket, a post office and gift shop. Ideally situated for the wonderful National Trust coastal walks including the South West Coast Path and the wild beauty of Dartmoor.
