Marlborough is dominated by All Saints Church, a landmark which can be seen for many miles around. The Church dates back to the 13th century and several local manors were mentioned in the Domesday book. The village is more tranquil than Salcombe and Kingsbridge, and has its own character with many thatched cottages and old houses. There is a post office and garage with a small supermarket close by, together with two public houses and The Lodge Hotel.

Things To Do

- Visit the safe & sandy beaches at Salcombe, Hope Cove, Thurlestone and Bantham

- Shopping at Salcombe, Kingsbridge & Dartmouth

- Golf at Thurlestone, Bigbury & Dartmouth

- Walk a section of the south west coastal path

- Enjoy watersports such as windsurfing, canoeing and water skiing at South Sands (one mile away)

- Visit the cathedral cities of Exeter & Plymouth

- Horse riding along the country lanes or over Dartmoor
