Tranquil and idyllic

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful spot. Perfect to recharge the batteries!

Close to salcombe. Park and ride is a must into salcombe. Lots of other places to visit. Not forgetting Dartmoor zooalogical park. Walks from the door. Hope cove near by, good hotel for lunch and lovely views. Or just stay at home in that gorgeous garden, the view is amazing😎

Idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

Vale Court is a cosy, homely cottage in an idyllic setting. The cottage has everything you need and more, it's was clean and well equipped. (It's like being at home!)

3 rooms upstairs are all good sizes and the double has a stunning view of the private garden and fields beyond.

Village is scenic and very peaceful and throughly enjoyed the lack of traffic, street lights and bustle of London.

Stunning view at Hope Cove about 8 mins away and Salcombe which is 10 mins away has a South Sands Ferry that takes you across to North sands where you can enjoy a lovely walk back into main street Salcombe.

Had great communication with owner Linda from the beginning of my enquiries until our return home. She is very friendly and professional and it was a pleasure to stay at this property.

I have already spoken with my family about visiting Vale Court again and my children have also asked when will we be going back! Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: We are delighted to hear that you had such a lovely holiday at Vale Court Cottage and appreciated the views and quiet location in the village. Hope Cove and South Sands are some of the most beautiful spots in the region and our children, when they were smaller, also loved to catch the ferry from South Sands to Salcombe. It is great to hear that Linda, who manages the cottage for us, ensured that you had a pleasurable stay. Thank you for your complimentary review and we look forward to welcoming you back again one day.

Idyllic Devon cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is delightful. It is full of character yet the rooms are a good size for this type of property. We had a very comfortable stay and Malborough is a lovely quiet village. The cost of our stay seemed very reasonable and was totally inclusive. The cottage was very clean and well-appointed. A nice touch was the card and bottle of wine to help us celebrate our wedding anniversary. Vehicle access is a little tight, but there is a free car park just up the road. We will definitely recommend Vale Court to our friends.

A lovely cottage in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely, well maintained and well equipped cottage. Malborough is considerably quieter and better value than salcombe yet they are only 2 miles apart. Both the owner and neighbours were incredibly friendly and helpful. We had a fantastic week and would very happily return.
