Located in the centre of Malborough village near the market town of Kingsbridge, our bungalow offers the perfect setting for exploring the South Devon beaches, coastal walks and Dartmoor National Park. The bungalow itself is located in Malborough village but 5 mins from Salcombe, making it a perfect setting for outdoor activities including sailing, diving and walking. Come rain or shine there are attractions for all, the children would enjoy Woodlands theme park, historians would love the many National Trust houses, such as Overbecks and Saltram House, and walkers will love the 232 miles of footpaths and coastal paths. There are also several excellent golf courses nearby. The cities of Plymouth and Exeter are within easy reach and are great for shopping and packed with museums, art galleries and other attractions such as the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth.

“lovely cottage with stunning views”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2019

The bungalow is a very spacious home with outstanding views over the country side and is in a convenient position to walk to the nearby service station with a co op. you are not to far away from some lovely beaches and pubs all dog friendly. the furniture and soft furnishings however were extremely tired and the bedspreads were stained.we had taken our own throws for the furniture so it was really not an issue but it stopped me from giving this property a 5 star review.

Owner's reply: So glad to hear your enjoyed the views, location of Tubbs Delight and all the dog friendly beaches and places. I am very disappointed that the bedspreads were stained and have taken this up with my cleaning company to get this rectified immediately. With regard the sofa, it was hand upholstered with faux leather and unfortunately a guest's dog has scratched it very badly since I was there in April and until I have a break in lettings I have been unable to take it to the upholsters to get it repaired. Luckily this is happening next week and so there will be no more tired soft furnishings. I hope you will stay again and see that I take complaints seriously and rectify them as soon as I can. Thanks
