"Lovely break, would definitely return"
Lovely bungalow, in a quiet area with beautiful views, would definitely recommend! Debbie was very helpful when we needed her and gave good clear information for when we arrived at the bungalow. Thanks !
Hope you book again. Thank you for your kind words.

I booked Tubb’s Delight when attending a family wedding in the beautiful South Hams of Devon. We were a party of 6 – my wife and I, our son and daughter-in-law, and our two grandchildren aged 7 and 4. Upon arriving at the bungalow we were not to be disappointed, and found it to be utterly charming and every bit as nice as we had hoped. My wife's first comment when entering was "There are loads of hangers and an electrical socket at the dresser! This has definitely a lady's touch." The bungalow had every convenience we desired as a home from home. Then we opened the curtains in the lounge – WOW! The view from the lounge over the decking, as the view from the kitchen, took our breath away. Rolling hills with cattle grazing; tractors ploughing fields; Dartmoor in the distance, and rabbits and deer feeding in the early evening in the field behind. The location of the bungalow was also just right, and SO quiet and peaceful. We grew to love Malborough and the local bus service, and the closeness of two pubs and a Post Office was the icing on the cake. It was a 3 minute flat stroll from Tubb’s Delight to the bus stop at the other end of the village past the Post Office and pubs. The best food and wine was found in the Old Inn, but the best ‘pub’ atmosphere was found at the Royal Oak - IMHO it must be said. The garage at the bus stop also has a very good Co-Op with opening hours 5am to 12 midnight. “Just popping out for milk/coffee/kitchen towels dear.” Was the code for my son and I to pop out for a quick pint. The ladies preferred to sit in the lounge with a glass of wine and be absorbed into the magnificent landscape. I was personally impressed with the solar water heating, where even getting ready for a wedding we didn’t need to fire the boiler. There is also an airflow system in each room with heat recovery. This meant that there was not one cold corner or room needing to be aired. Care needs to be taken with re-cycling though. The South Hams are VERY specific about separation, but plenty of information can be found on the notice board in the garage. Glass is not collected, but a collection point can be found at the village hall near the bus stop. I am from the area originally and used to Devon’s narrow lanes; all of which have thankfully not changed. Therefore the approach lane filled my wife with dread – quite unnecessarily IMHO - but we soon learned to approach via the lower lane, and leave via the lane passing the magnificent church. An unofficial one-way system that the locals appeared to observe too. The paved drive has space for one vehicle, but the low stone walls made opening the car doors somewhat hazardous without care. It didn’t matter though because there was ample safe alternative parking in the Lane. We cannot offer a single negative comment and will heartily recommend the property to our enlarged family when wanting to stay in the South Hams.
Wow. What can I say ? Thank you so much for your amazing review. I have tears of happiness. My hard work has paid off. Thank you so much. I will continue to improve the property and hope you like the new Solar PV.

"lovely holiday bungalow with amazing views of the countryside!!!"
We have just returned from Tubbs Delight having stayed there for a long weekend. The bungalow was a very good size - there was 6 of us including 4 older teenagers and there was plenty of room. It was very clean and well equipped, I think they have thought of everything!! Our teenage children loved the internal sound system! It was the first time our teenage children had been to South Devon and they absolutely loved it, said it was better than going abroad! They appreciated the views from the rear of the property and loved seeing the sunset from the patio (not something you see very often when living in a built up town). We visited 4 of the local coves and the views from the walk along the cliff tops was amazing. Would highly recommend this property and look forward to going back soon.
Thank you for your wonderful review. If you do think of anything else I need to provide please let me know. Looking forward to you staying gain.

"Excellent dog friendly holiday."
We stayed at Tubbs Delight for a week with our dog. The bungalow was very well appointed with a large, fully enclosed, grass rear garden. The view from the rear of the property was breathtaking as you could see over to Datrmoor. The accommodation was very comfortable with everything we could need for our stay was provided. There were also useful items for our dog. We will definitely stay here again. The position of this property was close to Kingsbridge and Salcombe.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a lovely review. Delighted you enjoyed your doggy holiday. We look forward to welcoming you back next year.

"Great property and excellent value for money!"
Perfect getaway for a relaxing break! The garden was a great size for a BBQ and for the dog to run around in! Well equipped house with all the mod cons, including music system, large TV, washing machine & drier - to name a few. The hot tub was excellent and comfortable for the 5 of us to sit in! For the money I really don't think a better deal is to be had! Recommended!
Thank you for your excellent review. I am always striving to improve and will continue to keep everything in tip top condition.

"Excellent accommodation in South Devon"
Tidy, well finished bungalow within a quiet village. Local amenities such as petrol station, food store etc. Local people friendly and beaches within easy reach. Close to Dartmoor and several walkways (if you're into rambling/walking). Even more important; there are TWO pubs both of which serve food (as well as very good beer, try the Doom beer for ale lovers)! Within short distance of Kings Bridge for those interested in dining out.
Thank you for your great review. Hope you visit us again.

"Beautiful countryside location and close to gorgeous bays!"
My husband and I stayed at Tubbs Delight over Valentines weekend with our 2 dogs. The bungalow was cosy with all amenities required for a comfortable stay! The views from the bungalow are breath taking and are even better when sat in the hot tub :) 2 local (dog friendly) pubs that serve food within walking distance. So many walks and beautiful sites to be seen. North and South sands, and Hope bays are something else! I would highly recommend a break away at Tubbs Delight!
So pleased you and your dogs enjoyed your stay. Thanks very much for your kind words.I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay with us and I look forward to seeing you again.

"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.
