Make a holiday home in Malborough your home away from home

The picturesque village of Malborough in Devon looks as if it was always meant to be the perfect seaside romantic getaway destination. Clinging to the gentle hills of the South Hams, Malborough has all the conveniences of a modern town, but offers the scenery and atmosphere of a far-flung resort. Within reach by foot from the village is the spectacular South West Coast Path, and six separate sandy beaches. Despite its size, Malborough acts as a community hub for the surrounding villages: its amenities include two pubs, a petrol station, post office, and hotel/restaurant.

A number of wonderful holiday homes in Malborough are listed with HomeAway. Many boast stunning sea views along with other amenities such as internet access, air conditioning, and washer/dryer facilities. Holiday homes in Malborough and nearby rentals in Salcombe range from one to six bedrooms and appeal to visitors of all budgets. One and two bedroom holiday homes start at around £250 per week and prices go up from there. For those interested in short stay holidays, a few select rentals are available on a nightly or weekend basis.

Things to do

-Outdoor activities: Walking, cycling, and horse riding in and around Malborough is a real pleasure. This part of Devon is so lush and green that many visitors are reluctant to head back indoors, particularly on a warm and sunny day. The coastline near holiday homes in Malborough is part of the South West Coast Path and offers stunning scenery of cliffs, countryside, and the sea.

-Beach: There are six beaches within a mile or two of the centre of Malborough. Several Malborough holiday homes are much closer to the water and have lovely sea views. In the summer these beaches attract visitors from all over the UK, as many are suitable for swimming and the weather can get quite warm here. Most of the beaches near Malborough are sandy and are just as ideal for sunbathing as they are for swimming.

-Watersports: Holidaymakers after watersports need look no further than Thurlestone Beach. Thurlestone has a selection of lovely holiday rentals in its own right, and is just three miles from central Malborough. The beach here is a haven for watersports activities such as diving, sea kayaking, and windsurfing. The water is also calm enough for swimming, and there is a lifeguard on duty throughout the summer months. Dogs are also more than welcome to join their owners on the beach.

-Family attractions: If the beaches aren't enough to keep kids fully occupied, families staying in Malborough holiday accommodation can make the short drive to Dartmouth. Once there, tourists can visit attractions such as Dartmouth Castle, Dartmouth Zoological Park, and the Woodlands Leisure Park, which is more than enough to keep kids occupied for hours.

Weather in Malborough

Malborough enjoys lovely mild weather throughout the year. Most visitors prefer to visit in July and August, as these are the warmest months of the year. However, high temperatures remain above 15°C from May to October. Winters are pleasant enough for outdoor activities, though it does tend to rain more often between October and December.

Cute, cosy cottage!

4 of 5
Last minute booking which was very successful. Little difficult to find, tucked off the road, mid-terrace but perfect for the quiet, relaxing weekend we had planned! Roaring fire was great!

Just lovely

5 of 5
We stayed in Friday cottage over February half term, there were six of us including four teenagers and the cottage was spacious enough to let us all have our own space without losing any of its cosy charm and plenty of room for all of us to sit around the log burner in the evening. The location of this cottage is perfect and it was so easy to walk down to the bakery for breakfast every morning, for the children to wander down to Cranches to top up their sweet supply and to stumble home after supper!! We had a wonderful time here and I cannot wait to visit again.

Relaxing

5 of 5
Lovely property. Well equipped. Owners very welcomming with little touches. We had a very relaxing week Did lots of walking from the property (averaged 12m p/d) on good well marked paths. The town was only a few mins walk away Would definitely reccommend
