Things to do

-Outdoor activities: Guests choosing a holiday cottage in Morleigh will find that they are situated in an ideal area for rambling. Designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the South Hams is an excellent place to explore on foot at any time of the year. Beyond walking, visitors can partake in horse riding and cycling.

-Beaches: Guests settled into their cosy Morleigh holiday cottages enjoy all the tranquility and peace of rural Devon, but are also less than seven miles from the beach. Blackpool Sands Beach in nearby Dartmouth is the closest Blue Flag beach in the area and is a lovely place to spend an afternoon. In the summer the beach is suited for swimming and sunbathing, and it is an excellent walking area the rest of the year.

-Golf: The moorland of the South Hams lends itself well to golf courses. Morleigh is fewer than ten miles from several notable golf clubs. Dartmouth Golf Country Club is the closest and features two separate courses. Situated along the stunning Devon coastline, Thurlestone Golf Club and Bigbury Golf Club are just a short drive away from Morleigh and offer some of the most spectacular views of any golf course in the UK. All three clubs welcome visitors.

Woodlands Leisure Park, which features rides for children of all ages and a hands-on farm, is a short drive away. The town of Dartmouth is also not far from Morleigh, and is home to a wonderful museum and castle for families to explore. Naturally, Dartmouth is a popular holiday destination thanks to all its cultural attractions and proximity to beaches.

-Food and drink: The fertile soil of Devon lends itself well to growing delicious produce. Gastropubs featuring locally sourced ingredients are easy to find in the South Hams, as are tea rooms and cafés serving fresh Devonshire clotted cream. Seaside towns such as Salcombe and Dartmouth are also well known for serving fresh seafood.

Lovely, clean, comfortable and well-equipped house.

4 of 5
Centrally situated within easy walking distance of shops, including Marks & Spencer's Local for food, and all the other goodies Dartmouth has to offer. Only negative is that access to the house is via a small lane (no parking but ok for off-loading and a quick level walk to municipal car park with a free parking permit provided by the property - so park your car and forget about it for your stay) with two flights of very uneven and steep steps to negotiate to get to the property. Definitely not suitable for anyone unsteady on their feet (for whatever reason!). We would definitely visit again.

Wonderful, relaxing, comfortable accommodation set in a glorious rural setting, yet Dartmouth and Totnes are within easy reach. The hosts, Margaret, Sue and Ron were so friendly and helpful. My partner (and her Labrador) and I had the most wonderful long weekend, we wished we could have stayed longer. I can't recommend this properly highly enough.
