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.

-Family attractions: Morleigh is surrounded by all sorts of fun attractions that the whole family can enjoy. 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.

Though Morleigh is most frequented in the warm months of summer when high temperatures reach into the 20s, the region’s mild weather make it a feasible place to visit throughout the year. Ramblers and outdoor lovers can enjoy the natural beauty of the area in all its seasons. For beachgoers, the best time to rent a holiday cottage in Morleigh is in July and August.

We couldn't fault it in anyway, Chris and Louise were so lovely and being so close to the beach was amazing. Would definitely recommended to family and friends especially with how reasonable the price is for what you get.

It is a delightful bungalow, very comfortable and welcoming. It really is a home from home stay. The location is excellent not far from Paignton, Brixham, the Steam Train, the Zoo together, with some lovely walks.
