Stunning property in a beautiful place.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed a lovely, relaxing week away from work with our three children who are all in their twenties, in this pretty cottage,which blends the old building with the new beautifully. Plenty of space for us to spread out and do our own thing and lots for us to see and do locally, our break was over too soon!

Hope Thatch

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hope Thatch. The cottage was charming, with good facilities and our children really appreciated extras such as 3d TV, Xbox and selection of DVDs. Malborough is only a short drive from Salcombe and is well positioned for visiting beaches in the area. Would recommend Bigbury on Sea and Bantham as good family beaches.

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 windsurfing. 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.
