About Debbie Sharkey

Tubbs Delight has been looked after by the same family since it was built in the 1960's. It has always been a great family self catering holiday rental in Devon. The second generation now maintains the property and it has changed immensely from its humble beginnings. Tubbs Delight is constantly being refurbished and updated. I have tried to make the bungalow as comfortable as I can for you as it is important to me that you enjoy your holiday. Having lived there as a child I consider Tubbs Delight my baby and love relaxing down there. For me its a get way from the phone, WiFi and computer (although you don't have to) and its a chance to go walking in the countryside and rock pool investigating on the beach.

Debbie Sharkey purchased this bungalow in 1960

Why Debbie Sharkey chose Malborough

"Far from the madding crowd" is exactly how I would describe Tubbs Delight. Even more so in the Winter when you can see snow on Dartmoor.

My parents bought it as a family getaway. They loved the village, countryside and beaches. The village is self supporting with the co-op shop so you can just arrive and sit out looking at the view all day long.

What makes this bungalow unique

It is the view from the rear of the property which is breathtaking and has not changed in decades.

The decking from the lounge houses the 4 person jacuzzi (which is available at an additional cost and subject to conditions) and its amazing how many stars you can see at night.

If you are an ardent walker (with or without a dog) you hardly need to use the car. Tubbs delight is a Walkers are welcome property with a drying area for wet muddy clothes and shoes, a washing machine and dryer, an outside tap for cleaning and a jacuzzi for relaxing those aching limbs.

Tubbs Delight is a sustainable home with cavity wall insulation, heat recovery system, PV and Solar hot water. I am working towards a carbon zero holiday home.
