The cottage was lovely , very cosy and welcoming. Val greeted us and remained helpful throughout our
This property is very pretty, a lovely cosy cottage with log burner and beams and all you would want in a cottage holiday. The gardens are beautiful with fabulous views. Everything was clean and tidy and very well equipped. This really is a beautiful part of the world.
Many thanks for your excellent review. I am so pleased the Birthday weekend was a success. It was lovely to meet you all, and hope to see you again.
Thank you again.
Real home from hone
Beautifully kitted out, warm, cosy, quiet but not isolated. Fabulous views and a lovely garden. We will most definitely be returning!
BEAUTIFUL, QUIET COTTAGE
Ideal accommodation and setting, with stunning views across the Devon countryside.. Five minutes from the coast at Salcombe, or you can also pop to Hope Cove. We have had a great time and didn't want to leave.
Thank you so much for your excellent review. It was lovely to meet you both, and I'm so pleased you enjoyed your break. Very much hope to see you again.
Henshaws 🐾 South Yorks 7th to 17th September
Owners gave us a lovely welcome with cream tea too. Everything clean and comfortable in this lovely cottage. Beautiful field views from the garden. Enjoyed lots of walks to Salcombe and Hope Cove etc. Little ferry across to Mill Sands and Sunny Cove from Salcombe a must as nice sandy beaches and extremely quiet this time of year. Dog friendly too. Lovely food and great hospitality in the pub up the road also nice pub in Salcombe but booking essential. Weather very kind being sunny and very mild. Boat trip on the River Dart in Dartmouth was good with spot of shopping too. Park and ride into Dartmouth recommended. Love love love this area and it’s so dog friendly too everywhere - pubs, shops,cafes and restaurants alike. September is a good month to come - still quite lively but not overcrowded. Lovely friendly owners and very helpful. As mentioned in the directions the driveway into the property is very narrow - we have a mondeo and it was a tight squeeze but we managed it. Probably wouldn’t need to keep driving here anyway. Definitely not a problem just something to be wary of before you arrive. All in all a lovely relaxing holiday. Bed very comfy and new shower amazing!!! Thank you
Thank you so much for a brilliant review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday - hope Max did too! His little legs must have been very tired after all that walking! It was lovely to meet you, and very much hope to see you again.
Beautiful, well situated, comfortable and well equipped cottage
We very much enjoyed our stay ... two parents, a 4-year-old, a mother-in-law, and a newborn baby. With a friend staying nearby who came over for dinner in the evenings. Plenty of space, and a beautiful garden to boot. Val is very considerate, and if we needed anything was on hand to help. Parking conveniently in front of the cottage. Excellently situated for visiting Salcombe, Hope Cove, and lots of other spots nearby. Although there's only one bathroom, downstairs, there's a "non-suite" utility room area which also houses a lavatory. (And another fridge, which we only noticed after a few days.) I would urge the owners to purchase a barbecue, which is the only essential (in the summer) item not currently there, and a nice big saucepan for boiling potatoes / making stock would have been welcome too. All deeply charming, even on the one day that it bucketed down with rain and we had to spend the day indoors. Heartily recommended!
Thank you so much, Nick, for your brilliant review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and It was lovely to meet you all. Really hope to see you again. Hope you enjoyed your last day on the beach! Val
A holiday that will be hard to beat, and has converted us to do more UK based holidays in the future...the awesome weather obviously helped.
The cottage, the garden, the views, the people, the beaches, the rivers, the walks, the seafood and Lyme Bay white wine...I'm in complete awe!!. Devon really does have it all and equally so does Vale Court Cottage!
The location of the cottage was perfect for us. A 2 mile footpath links Marlborough village to Salcombe or a short drive easily connects you to Dartmouth, Salcombe and Knightsbridge...with fabulous walks and beaches. Our favorite beach was Bantham, with private car park, soft sands and plenty of surf!
I would highly recommend the cottage, and with our 10 month old in toe...it had everything we needed to make our first holiday together very, very special!
Very sad to leave, but will be back!
Who needs holidays abroad when you can have this?!
Thank you so much for your brilliant review. It was great meeting you, and it was lovely to see Olivia enjoying her first holiday! Do hope your move went well, and we also hope to see you all again soon - Olivia will be walking - and talking by then, I expect!
Thank you again. Val and John
Situated in the heart of the South Hams district of South Devon, Malborough lies between the sailing centre of Salcombe and the market town of Kingsbridge. A quiet little village that has two pubs, a bistro, a well-stocked supermarket, a post office and gift shop. Ideally situated for the wonderful National Trust coastal walks and the wild beauty of Dartmoor. There is a choice of several sandy beaches all within easy reach of the cottage, from small coves to wide-open sands - ideal for surfing and kitesurfing. Also close by is a leisure centre, steam railways, horse riding and golf. The historical seaports of Plymouth and Dartmouth are within a 40 minute drive.
