Lovely traditional cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely break in this charming and cozy cottage over Easter. Comfortable and clean and full of character, it's more spacious than expected with good dining space for groups in both kitchen and dining area, and lovely outside area. With modern bathrooms and kitchen the cottage is a real gem.

The village has a couple of good pubs and a supermarket, but we went on wonderful walks and sampled a number of the local restaurants and cafes. A great find.

Lovely character cottage in a beautiful part of Devon

  • 5 of 5

We loved this quaint and cosy old cottage with its thatched roof. The front rooms and bedrooms are old and cosy with a modern kitchen and bathroom on the back. It was a lovely base for a short pre-Christmas break. There is under floor heating in the kitchen and a cosy log burner in the lounge. We had some wonderful walks from the cottage along the coast, with pub meals in Salcombe and Hope Cove.

Well Equipped Gem

  • 4 of 5

It may lack kerb appeal for some but inside the cottage is a delight. It has a modern kitchen and bathroom but the living rooms and bedrooms are full of character. The garden has a seating area with good quality garden furniture. It is opposite one of two very friendly pubs in the village that serve reasonable meals. The village has a supermarket and there is a regular bus service to Salcombe and Kingsbridge. I would certainly recommend the cottage to friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, I'm so glad you enjoyed your time at our cottage. Unfortunately the external of the building needs repainting most years due to the sea air and unfortunately we hadn't managed to secure a decorator in time for the start of season this year, thankfully a full redecoration of the outside to include railings & shed etc was carried out at the end of season. The building now looks beautiful - fresh, clean & bright in it's funky new colours!

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.

Lovely traditional cottage.

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful long weekend at Hope Thatch. Lovely and near to Salcombe , with some fantastic restaurants - we felt like we had been away for a week. The cottage is ideally located to start some truly beautiful walks and to visit the lovely beaches. Spent lazy evenings at the cottage watching DVDs and relaxing in this unspoilt cottage and village. Clean and tidy with everything you need for a relaxing break. The local shop/petrol station also stocks almost anything you might need. Would definitely recommend.
