The terraced south-facing garden is a sun-trap year round. You will hear the sounds of birds singing, and will see cows and sheep grazing. On winter days you can clearly see Dartmoor.
With a grass lawn for playing games or lounging, and shade under the large umbrella on the patio for enjoying cool drinks, the garden makes a lovely alternative to the beach. Later in the evening, enjoy sunset dining at the alfresco table and chairs, and the outdoor BBQ.
The decking houses the 4 person jacuzzi which is available at an additional cost and subject to conditions.
The views from the rear of the property are breathtaking and have not changed in decades.
Jacuzzi is available subject to conditions and extra cost.
Well Behaved dogs are allowed (by prior arrangement) for a small extra charge
Due to recent experience I am having to levy a " Housekeeping charge" of £100 per booking. This amount will be returned if the property is left clean and tidy.

"Well situated & dog friendly"
This is a clean and well equipped bungalow ideally placed for exploring the South Hams area. The accommodation was comfortable and the rear deck (with optional hot tub) was a lovely place to sit and watch the spectacular sunsets.
The large lawned and fenced garden was ideal for our 2 dogs to race around in so they thoroughly enjoyed the holiday too!
Thank you so much! I am so pleased that you and your dogs enjoyed your recent stay at Tubbs Delight. We hope to see you again soon.

"Very good, larger than appearence, clean and tidy, great views"
We really enjoyed our stay at Tubbs Delight. The garden view is wonderful with lovely sunsets. The interior is simple but clean and tidy and larger inside than expected from the front view. Driveway parking and only a few minutes from the local Co-op in the village service station. Situated very close to Salcombe, Kingsbridge and Hope Cove. We would be happy to stay there again.
So glad you had a lovely holiday. Look forward to you coming again.

"Lovely property in a beautiful location"
We loved Tubbs Delight! The views were even better than we expected and the property was very well laid out to take advantage of the scenery, with plenty of seating in the garden and a lovely big patio door/window that meant you could sit and enjoy the view at anytime. The bungalow was clean and tidy on arrival and very well equipped. We also really liked the secure and spacious garden for our dogs, many places are described as 'pet friendly' but fail to live up to this when you arrive - Tubbs Delight exceeded our expectations.
I'm so glad you had a lovely holiday. The back garden is great for dogs. Love you to visit us again. Thanks

"Tubbs Delight is a fantastic cottage and i would highly recommend it to others"
We stayed at Tubbs Delight over half term and found it was a fantsatic holiday cottage. It was reasonably priced and in an excellent location of several tourist destinations. The cottage is exceptionally clean with a brand new kitchen and lots of space.
We went with family which consisted of 6 adults and 1 baby and found that there was plenty of room for all. The cottage even has baby facilities which saved alot of space in the car (cot, baby changing mat, highchair, etc).
We hired the hottub for use during our stay and found that this was a relaxing end to most days. It is easy to use and an amazing addition to the cottage.
Debbie was really friendly and very helpful with enquiries before our holiday!
I would toroughly reccomed this cottage to others are we will certanly return.
Thank you, I strive to maintain an extremley high standard. The exterior was painted yesterday and I worked on the flower bed. I jetwashed the drive and patio.
Hope all my guests have a fantastic summer holiday.
